There is an answer on the main site which purports to portray the sitting American president as a bit of a simpleton (which I may or may not agree with). The problem is that while doing this the answer sources a quote to the president which he did not say. While in Economics we often tell fables to get a point across, I find this problematic.
My reasoning is that it gets us closer to sympathy based political voting and that can distort which one is the best answer.
In this case I find that the answer is great other than this problem. I still don't think that is an excuse. The poster of the answer rolled back edits that did nothing but removed this part. Rather he edited in a part which states that the quote is false. In my opinion this is still a bad work around.
Are there any suggestions on how to proceed?
