Satirical website ‘EmpireNews.net’ known to mock up hard hitting celebrity headlines has reported that former president George W. Bush was arrested by police for the possession of cocaine after a traffic stop revealed the drug in the glove box of his truck.
The spoof article then went on to quote ‘One of the most notorious Presidents in history of The United States of America is back in the spotlight, but not because of his politics. George W. Bush was arrested in a Dallas suburb late Tuesday evening after a routine traffic stop uncovered over an ounce of cocaine in his glove compartment.’It then even went further to add ‘Bush tried to bribe them to keep from getting arrested. When that failed, he turned to threats and rambling, reportedly saying that he would ‘get the FBI to kick their a–’ and that ‘Presidents can break any laws they want.’’
Within minutes the article was seen by thousands of people and shockingly even some believed the story apparently not putting anything past the ex-President of the United States. Bush, one of the most famous people on the planet, is always accompanied by Secret Service and an arrest by a couple of state policeman would be an impossible feat. A satirical joke that proved to be believable to some internet users incredibly, surely not all publicity is good publicity.
