Might want to add that this is supposed to be satire.

Never visited the Daily Currant before so at first glance it seemed like a genuine article. Then I read the about section of the website:

The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper that covers global politics, business, technology, entertainment, science, health and media. It is accessible from over 190 countries worldwide - now including South Sudan.

Our mission is to ridicule the timid ignorance which obstructs our progress, and promote intelligence - which presses forward.

Q. Are your news stories real?

A. No. Our stories are purely fictional. However they are meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world

Of course these days, the line between truth and fiction is increasing becoming blurred as the President continues to set new unprecedented milestones... First President to acknowledge a kill list of American citizens. First President to start a war using a drone army (coming soon)!... etc.
