Prime Minister Stephen Harper Likes to Twerk

Edit: This is not a real story. Source >

At a community leader meeting on Monday, Prime Minister Harper shared that he enjoys "twerking" with his friends and "every now and then with President Obama." Further, he explained to the group of community volunteers that "speeches like this have their place for sure [...] but a quick twerk is a great way to express what I'm thinking."

After the faces of 400 community leaders went blank, Harper asked "What? Don't I look like I twerk?" Better yet, he continued on by telling the crowd that he "would like to twerk with every Canadian but that of course is impossible."

Wait, what?

Immediately after the conference, the PMO announced that “Prime Minister Harper knows how important social media is to Canadians and enjoys tweeting. He has never and will never twerk. We regret any confusion that may have been created by a slip of the tongue today.”

To top things off, liberal leader Justin Trudeau was unavailable, so another senior staff of the liberal party told CTV News, "Ewww. Won't be able to delete that mental image any time soon."

And to clarify, Secretary Jay Carney of the white house added, "The President of the United States does not twerk."
