Perfect. Perfect trolling New Yorker.

My favorite part is the Baghdad Sean quote:

... Sean Spicer, the White House press spokesman, touted the surging employment for fact checkers but said that the actual number of jobs created was closer to ten billion.

Plenty of liberals have 'trolled' Andy Borowitz as an uncreative hack and creator of 'fake news'

http://www.salon.com/2012/08/16/andy_borowitz_not_funny/

Andy Borowitz makes dad jokes for self-satisfied liberals. If you think Sarah Palin is stupid and Mitt Romney is rich, Andy Borowitz has some jokes that will decidedly not challenge a single one of your prior assumptions!

For some reason the man who created “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” is now America’s foremost political satirist. Except he’s not actually a satirist, he’s a parodist. As a parodist he falls very short of the standard set by, say, (true American treasure) Weird Al. His milieu is “fake news,” which is a very crowded field. But Borowitz is a one-man fake news machine, producing with soothing predictability an endless stream of topical jokes and sentences that resemble jokes, for Twitter (“Romney: ‘It’s time to transform America, and Paul Ryan and I are both Transformers.'” I think the joke there is that Romney and Ryan are robotic. Or maybe that they’re evil?) and his new home at the New Yorker.

Meanwhile, the Most Read list at NewYorker.com is often occupied by the "satirical" work of Andy Borowitz, whose work is so tepid that people often share it without realizing it's supposed to be funny. Here's Borowitz's latest: Claiming Gary Johnson's favorite foreign leader is Obi-wan Kenobi (derp)

Why bother?

Just assume everything he says is a lie and report bigger whoppers!
