Indicted FIFA executive Jack Warner fooled by an article from The Onion

Jack Warner has some thoughts on the actions of the United States with regards to FIFA. He believes there is clearly quite the double standard at play, given that the US wants to host the World Cup this year but is still trying to attack soccer's governing body.

Problem is the article he's using to show that the US wants to host the World Cup this year is from The Onion and is blatant satire. Maybe these guys aren't smart enough for organized corruption after all.

Warner was apparently able to bribe someone into explaining how satire works to him and has since taken the video down. Luckily, Deadspin was able to grab it and keep it alive for all of us. Go here to watch it, but if you don't like being lied to or spoken to like you are stupid then maybe you shouldn't.
