Congressman Falls for the Onion’s Planned Parenthood ‘Abortionplex’ Satire
Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming is the latest politician to fall for an Onion story and believe it to be genuine news: Congressman Falls for the Onion’s Planned Parenthood ‘Abortionplex’ Story.
Rep. Fleming posted on Facebook an Onion story from last year on an “$8 billion Abortionplex” being built by Planned Parenthood, featuring restaurants, a nightclub, and a 10-screen multiplex theater. Along with the link to the article, Fleming commented:
More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale.
John Fleming, you are the LGF Derp of the Day.
(Except it’s not really that funny to see a Congressman so blinded by animus toward Planned Parenthood that he’d accept such an obviously exaggerated satire as the real thing.)
