Fake-News Report Claims Obama's Daughter is Pregnant


Jump To: Example       Comments   References

According to a 'news' story that is circulating rapidly via social media, US President Obama's 16-Year-Old Daughter Malia is pregnant. The story suggests that the pregnancy will be a major White House scandal and quotes Michelle Obama as explaining that 'teen pregnancy runs in the family'. 

However, the story is false. There are no credible reports that support the claim that Malia is pregnant. There have been no White House announcements about such a pregnancy.

In fact, the story is a work of fiction published by the fake-news website Empire News.  The site claims to be satirical and includes the following disclaimer on its About Page:

Empire News is a satirical and entertainment website. We only use invented names in all our stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental.
Nothing published on the site should be taken seriously. It is wise to verify any 'news' items that come your way via social media or email before you share them.
