Obama Posts Something Terrible on 4Chan On His Presidential Campaign Tour
WASHINGTON D.C. (The Global Edition) – After a successful chat session on the social news website Reddit, President Obama continued his Internet tour by posting a picture of a kitten that had been run over by a car on popular discussion board 4chan. The President’s spokesperson said that Mr. Obama is attempting to lure votes from creeps and trolls eligible to vote in the US.
“Weirdoes that visit 4Chan comprise about 25 percent of the people who never vote. If we can get them to like Obama, or as the 4Chan crowd likes to say, “liek Obama”, then we can seal the deal on election day,” a member of Obama’s web marketing staff said.
Internet analysts agree that the thread Obama started with a picture of kitten entrails splattered all over the road will help him win the hearts and minds of many 4Chan visitors.
“Unlike Reddit, nobody on 4Chan doubted for one second that it was the real Obama who started the thread, because users over there are used to seeing even weirder shit than the President of United States posting a photo of a disemboweled cat. This move is bound to bring him some troll votes,” Robert Scobble, a social media expert, told reporters.
As of press time, the thread Obama started has over 1,000 replies and has already spawned various memes and games, including a photoshop contest in which users can replace the kitten’s head with Mitt Romney’s, and can add their own funny captions to the montage.
As for the future plans, Obama campaign team announced that Chatroulette users can expect “to see the president pop up every now and then” on that Internet hang-around website as well.
