Spoof story claimed Barack Obama has a second Islamic wife called Huma Abedin

Iran - The Tehran Aintgottaprayer.con News Agency is in hot water tonight after falling for a Spoof story that the 'Muslim President' of the United States is taking a second wife.

The agency syndicated the Spoof article claiming a wealthy US philanthropisst [sic] has put up a $40 million bounty payable to any woman who could prove she'd undergone an Islamic marriage with Barack Obama to be his second string Mrs.

A disclaimer at the end of the story explaining the item was pure parody was somehow omitted from the official Farsi version of the article.

It went rapidly viral on the Iranian web after an anonymous blogger writing under the pen-name of 'Brother Rahm' commented that the ID of the second Mrs Barack Obama 'is none other that Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to the US Secretary of State'.

Already under a shadow for being a suspected Muslim Brotherhood mole Huma Abedin's actual marriage to ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) very nearly fell apart under the strain.

The publication of some very dodgy Twitter pics of her husband and online sex trolls did little to enhance her experience of giving birth to the couple's first child in 2011.

Of course all this matters very little in Tehran tonight where assorted Ayatollahs were busy tut-tutting their told-yer-sos as news of Obama's Islamic second marriage flooded the internet.

A spokesperson for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corpse (IRGC) that runs the Tehran agency said "WTF?" tonight.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
