Washington DC - A spokesperson for the Secret Service confirmed reports that agents recently busted down the door of an office across the street from the White House which housed a parrot allegedly trained by its conservative owner to incessantly squawk, "F..K Barack" over a loudspeaker pointed directly at the President's living quarters.
The bird's owner claimed that the parrot was acting on his own and claimed that he (the bird) had every right under the 1st Amendment to say what was on his mind. The parrot, who evidently had a mind of his own, was carried out in a covered cage by burly, gun toting agents. Onlookers said he was screaming and squawking the same epithet as he was hustled into an awaiting SUV.
The President, it was reported, had finally tired of this tirade which had gone on for some time. "The last straw," President Obama said, "was when Michelle was showing off her garden to some school children, and they started giggling about the parrot's obscene chant". Having consulted with his Attorney General, he was told that these rights didn't apply to birds under the 1st Amendment.
Ironically, the ACLU, who supported Obama in his election bid, is contesting this arrest and has requested that the parrot be released under its own recognizance.
