Ex-Fifa vice president Jack Warner swallows Onion spoof

• The Guardian

Jack Warner, the former Fifa vice president, has apparently been taken in by a spoof article from the satirical website The Onion.

In a video on his Facebook page, Warner appears to hold up a printout of an Onion article headlined "FIFA Frantically Announces 2015 Summer World Cup In United States" and, in a rambling address to camera says: "Then I look to see that Fifa has frantically announced, 2015, this year […] the World Cup, beginning May 27. If Fifa is so bad, why is it that the USA wants to keep the Fifa World Cup?"
