Former President Obama Is NOT Going On The U.S. $1 Bill

With the surge of fake news, it’s no surprise to find this story circling the internet. The fake new story involves claims that former President Barack Obama is subjected to take the place of George Washington the U.S. $1 bill. But as all fake new stories are, they’re absent with sources or any actual evidence.

The story first appears on “Stuppid” a self-proclaimed and publicly confirmed “Trending Stupid News” website dedicated to bringing readers wacky and odd new stories which are obviously fake. The article features a photoshopped picture of former President Obama’s face on the $1bill. It has resurfaced on a variety of sites with a site named “True Americans” on the forefront. Nothing screams True American more than regurgitating false information from a “Stuppid” website.

“We thought about creating a new denomination for Obama, but George Washington has had plenty of time in the sun,” says a “spokesperson” in the fake news story. There have been numerous altered articles of the story appearing across the depths of the internet, proving that thousands are victims of confirmation bias.

Comments are pouring in on these sites with the content being “LEAVE OUR MONEY ALONE!” and “this is not okay.”

It is estimated that 20+ websites that are known to produce fake news stories have published a story similar to the original article and many other sites have included polls with the fake news title.

According to ABC News, Stuppid’s Facebook page reported having no recollection of writing the article and they claim they are no longer producing fake new stories. Further investigation revealed the last article was published in May while the Facebook page has been active during December.

According to an Insurance Information Institute report, thousands of motorcycle accidents occur every year. One of the primary factors that have caused these accidents is the excessive consumption of alcohol. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that … “the percentage of motorcycle riders is greater than the percentage of intoxicated drivers on the road.”

This alarming statistic reveals how easy it is for accidents to occur when individuals are not alert enough to operate a motorcycle. Although this is a primary factor, additional factors include vehicle driver distraction and drunk driving. Other statistics revealed that among the 8.4 million motorcycle rides that occurred during 2014, 92,000 injuries were acquired, and 4,586 fatalities occurred.

The Consequences of Motorcycle Crashes

The potential of harming others who are not motorcycle riders also increases when vehicles crash as the result of a distracted motorcycle rider. If motorcycle riders and vehicle riders are injured in accidents, the consequences can lead to death or a lifetime of pain. When victims survive, the long-term medical care expense can steadily increase. Without lifetime health coverage, the expenses can become too much to handle.
