President Obama’s Daughter, Malia Obama, is Pregnant– Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
President Obama’s 16-year-old daughter, Malia, is pregnant.
Malia Obama is not pregnant.
The rumor first appeared at the fake news website Empire News in 2014 when Malia Obama was 16 years old. The story, which appeared under the headline, “President Obama’s 16-Year-Old Daughter Malia Confirmed Pregnant,” begins:
In what promises to be the biggest White House scandal since intern fellatio, President Barack Obama’s daughter, 16-year-old Malia, has confirmed that she is pregnant.
Sources say Malia is now in her second trimester. Mother and First Lady, Michelle Obama, says that although she will be a grandmother much younger than she planned, teen pregnancy runs in the family.
“On her father’s side of course. My mother-in-law had Barack when she was 18, so I see where Malia gets it from. I’m just so excited to decorate the nursery. The White House hasn’t seen a baby since oh, 1884 or so.”
For now, Malia is staying hush-hush about the father’s identity, but one thing she would say is that he is white. “My mom always hoped I would get with a nice mixed-race man like dad, but love is so colorblind. Mom was probably right though. The dad already left me for some tramp. And of course, like all white men, my baby-daddy won’t want to pay his child support. I already told him, ‘You want to keep your license so you can drive that bleach-blond tramp around in your little Jaguar, right? Better step up.’”
Within days, nearly 550 people had commented on the story. However, Empire News disclaimer reveals that it’s nothing more than a “satirical and entertainment website.”
The story began circulating again in early 2017, but it’s still a fake news report.
