Did you read this article on the New York Times about Virender Sehwag being next in line to be US President? The news report claimed that the former cricketer has been touring the United States and that the Trump administration has been in touch with him. The report said that both Donald Trump and the former US President Barack Obama are fond of him, and President Trump is expected to discuss this with Prime Minister Narendra Modi later this year.
Interesting, huh? This is nothing but a part of Viru’s PRANK on April Fool’s Day. LOL! The former cricketer, who has become the undisputed king of Twitter with his hilarious tweets and quick wit, shared this fake article from a fake page of a fake newspaper New York Times.
The article is shown to be written by Stephen Smith, which seems to be a comment on the Aussie skipper. Here’s what is written exactly –
‘Former India Cricketer and Twitter Superstar Virender Sehwag might become the next US President, according to sources. Viru, as he is popularly known has been touring the United States frequently and the Trump administration has been in touch with him. Both current President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama are said to be extremely fond of him and after having seen the build-up to the previous elections, Virender Sehwag has emerged as a unanimous choice. President Trump is expected to discuss about this with Indian Premier Minister Narendra Modi, when they meet later this year.’
This is what he tweeted –
