George Bush Sr may not think Americans can handle the truth about UFOs. But he sure did not say that regardless of what websites told you so

A popular conspiracy website (http://yournewswire.com/george-bush-senior-on-ufos-americans-cant-handle-the-truth/) rolled out an article days ago reporting a quote from George Bush Sr. The site reported,
An activist/journalist asked when the US government would tell the truth about UFOs, but the answer George Bush Snr gave took the crowd and reporters completely by surprise

He replied: “Americans can’t handle the truth” before the questioning was briefly halted by the event organizers.

While Your News Wire seemingly is getting most of the attention regarding the story, the real article that began it all is here on World news Daily Report. You know, the website that reports strange pieces of un-funny satire that when you see your friends link on Facebook you squirm because they think it's real.

The other day, this site was linked on one person's Facebook page. The story was about a vaccine making a girl pregnant. My friend was angry, stating that "why isn't anyone realizing this girl is lying about having sex?"

Sigh..Out loud.

The Bush story would be interesting. It may also be real in the sense that he could harbor such feelings about aliens, and UFOs. After all, the long held belief is that Bush Sr., a CIA man himself, knows the secrets..and where the aliens are buried, crafts are crashed, and bodies are counted. Of course, the very idea that a former president and living statesman would loudly state that Americans can't handle the truth about aliens, should be front page news!

It's not.. Because it didn't happen.

This is how the report from World News Daily Report went,
In hope of helping his son’s Jeb Bush struggling presidential campaign, George Bush Sr and former president George W. Bush have been campaigning behind the presidential candidate in hopes of bringing the Bush family’s name once again behind the Oval office, but some experts believe this kind of incident could cost him the race.

During the fundraiser, a man in the crowd raised a strange question which led to an even more surprising response by the former president and CIA director. The man asked George Bush Sr when the US government would tell Americans the truth about UFOs, to which he responded: “Americans can’t handle the truth” before the questioning was briefly halted by organizers of the event.

But take a breather.. and check out the 'ABOUT US' disclaimer on the site..
Information contained in this World News Daily Report website is for information and entertainment purposes only.

I would assume that this is an indicator of something.. no?

Well then believers, take off the tin foil hat and read this further:
WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people –  are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.

It's not real.
It's fake.
It's fun.

But in internet land, the beams are out and people are up. George Bush Sr. may know the truth. Maybe he thinks we can't handle it. But regardless of his mental condition or health, he would never say such things.

Unless he's in private. Or in satire..

Always fact check what you read. And please, if a website is satirical and has a disclaimer saying such, stop regurgitating the falsities..
