Former President Obama Endorses “May the Best Man Win”

(Washington, D.C.) – Barack Obama issued his much-coveted presidential endorsement on Tuesday, telling The Fake Scoop that he believes “may the best man win.”

Asked if he would like to endorse his former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Obama was non-committal.

“All I’m saying is keep your options open,” the former two-term President added.
