Huffington Post political reporter Sam Stein published a tweet a little while ago in regards to why President Obama did not wait until after the House vote to make remarks about the bill that would re-open government and raise the debt ceiling:

After expressing surprise that so many people were actually believing something a Huffington Post reporter wrote, Stein made it clear he was just kidding:

At the time this post was published, Stein had yet to delete the tweet.

Next time it might be wise to point out that it was a joke in the same tweet (a simple “jk” works wonders):

Stein’s “joke” was re-tweeted well over 100 times, because for many it fairly believable:

Or perhaps when Stein tweeted that the Obamas were seeing “Gravity” at 9:10, he was indeed joking, but for a more minor reason:
