President Obama has invited a 14 year old Muslim student to the White House after he was detained by police for taking to school a homemade clock that his teachers mistook it for a bomb. Mr. Obama said Almed Mohamed's clock was cool adding that more children should be inspired to enjoy science like him. Larry Boyd of the Irving police force in Texas explained why the boy was arrested. "The student would only say that it was a clock and was not forthcoming at that time about any other details. Having no other information to go on and take in that consideration the device’s suspicious appearance in the safety of the students and staff at the MacArthur high school. The student was taken into custody for possession of hoax bomb."

奥巴马总统邀请了一位14岁的学生到白宫,在这名学生将一只自制的时钟带动学校时,他的老师误将其当成了炸弹而被警方拘捕。奥巴马总统称赞莫汉姆·默罕默德的时钟非常酷,希望激励其他学生像他一样享受科学。德克萨斯州欧文警察部队的拉里·博伊德解释为什么孩子会遭到逮捕。“当时这名学生只是声称这是一个时钟,并没有其他附加的信息。也没有其他更多的信息表明这个疑似装置对麦克阿瑟高级中学的师生是安全的。所以这名学生应携带恶作剧炸弹而被拘留。”

 一个俄罗斯电视喜剧节目播出了歌手埃斯顿·约翰接到欺骗电话时的一段录音,在该通话中歌手以为自己是在与普京总统讨论同性恋权利问题。假扮总统的是非常有名的喜剧明星绰号为VOVAN的演员。英国广播公司新闻。
