Why is “Usama bin Laden” suddenly trending on Twitter TWTR, -0.07% ?

Well, that would be because Fox News ran this headline: “Usama bin Laden wanted to kill Obama so ‘totally unprepared’ Biden would be president, declassified docs show.”

Breaking news that clearly is not. Those documents, as Fox pointed out, came to light way back in 2012 courtesy of the Washington Post, which reported it like this:

“The reason for concentrating on them,” the al-Qaeda leader explained to his top lieutenant, “is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency… Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis.”

At the time, administration officials said the Obama plot was never a serious threat.

The rhetorical question that spread across the internet: Why now?

Usama Bin Laden is the new “Benghazi”? Interesting choice.

How ’bout just say Biden’s hidden birth certificate reveals that he was born Kenya and is actually some sort of MINORITY!

That should do it for the fact retardant voters on the Right.

Fox “News” publishing a story on, “Usama bin Laden” that was widely reported 8 years ago shows us just how concerned they are Trump is going to lose in November.

It’s a new level of desperation.
