Conservative author and convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza put coverage of the Ebola virus in perspective on Monday, asking whether or not the media was focusing enough on the outbreak of a lesser known virus, “OBOLA.”
D’Souza took to Twitter and posed the question:
Which is worse: EBOLA, the disease; or OBOLA, the dream from his father?(with illustration) https://t.co/zsWqu4KuqR

The link went to a Facebook post containing a photo of an Ebola virion juxtaposed with the President’s biological father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. No further context was provided.
It was actually his second attempt at the jokette that day; he sent out the first version hours earlier but appeared to leave out the “OBOLA” punchline.
Described by some as a “political prisoner” and others as a noticeably unimprisoned felon, D’Souza was sentenced in September to eight months in a community confinement center and five years probation after he pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws.
