I thought this was a joke

but feel free to read the original article yourself. Obama recently had a news interview in which he swatted a fly and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is all up in arms.
"Get out of here," the president told the pesky insect. When it didn't, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.
"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."
Friedrich said that PETA was pleased with Obama's voting record in the Senate on behalf of animal rights and noted that he has been outspoken against animal abuses.
Still, "swatting a fly on TV indicates he's not perfect," Friedrich said, "and we're happy to say that we wish he hadn't."
At right is the "Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside" that PETA is sending him.

Even as I post this, I'm expecting comments like "oh Mike, I can't believe you fell for this fake news story"

edit: as Joel points out, someone has already gone and made a ninja remix of the video
