Republican Congressman John Fleming thinks the Onion is real

Yup. Louisiana Congressman John Fleming linked his Facebook page to a fake news article at the Onion about Planned Parenthood building an $8 billion “abortionplex.” Fleming wrote, “More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale.”

The Onion’s editor said, “We’re delighted to hear that Rep. Fleming is a regular reader of America’s Finest News Source and doesn’t bother himself with The New York Times, Washington Post, the mediums of television and radio, or any other lesser journalism outlets.”
