O-bomb-a?

A local woman received a bomb threat from someone posing as President Barack Obama, a Pima County Sheriff's Department stated.

The reportee contacted sheriff's deputies from her car, saying that morning she'd received a phone call from someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service, but when she figured out it was a fraudulent call and confronted the person on the line, he got very angry and "revealed" himself as not actually an IRS employee, but the president himself—going on to claim there'd been a bomb planted in her home.

Deputies did a sweep of her property, finding nothing that could have been a bomb, and the home was cleared for residence.

    When hipsters do something that's slightly outside the law yet an innovation over the old guard, they get a Series-C round of funding, Instagram influencers, and fawning media coverage. When Mexicans do it? We get code enforcement.
