The President’s official spokesman said the claims, to be broadcast in a TV documentary later this month, were “absurd.” But the news coverage of this funny claim is amusing. Look at the DECCAN HERALD, Guardian, BBC,GLOBEANDMAIL, IPS, Telegraph, Scotsman and of course Aljazeera with the readers’ comment, with a meaningful photo of the only president in the world who has a direct line to God.
