Is This A Spoof

or not?
A Turkish news anchor wore black face paint while reporting on President Obama’s recent visit to the country…
Watch:

A rough translation : “Welcome, Mr. Obama. You took our hearts with your hospitality. We appreciate your kindness. We will do whatever America asks of us, as friends. Now, we ask the same of you.”

According to BuzzFeed, the face darkening is meant to be “a metaphor for the way the Bush administration “darkened” the face of the Turkish public, and how the anchor hopes Obama will turn things around.”
