(Memphis) No matter what you read on Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere, President Obama is not being asked to resign due to Beyonce’s singing or lack of thereof.
Several internet sites have posted stories claiming Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is asking the President to resign because Beyonce’s lip-synced the national anthem at the Inauguration.
The claims come from a satirical article written in the New Yorker.
Part of the article claims, “By lip-synching the national anthem, Beyoncé has cast a dark cloud over the President’s second term,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “The only way President Obama can remove that cloud is by resigning from office at once.”
The piece is written by comedian Andy Borowitz, a comedian and writer.
