One more quick debunk before the weekend is over. Liberal troll Christopher Blair (a.k.a. Busta Troll) has made it a habbit to launch a new fake news story every saturday in which Hillary Clinton gets killed and this weekend was no exception. The latest story can be read in these articles:

Perhaps unusually: the weekend is almost over and the story hasn't reached a deadly conclusion yet, but we're sure a new article will be added in the nick of time. Also funny: at the same time Bill Clinton is supposedly being held by terrorists according to Blair's sites, he is also pushing a story titled "BREAKING: Bill Clinton Caught On Camera With New Mistress". Quite a feat to pull off, even for Slick Willy!

We're not even going to bother debunking these stories, there are clear satire disclaimers at the bottom of each page and the stories themselves aren't getting much traction online. We just wanted to include them on the site so we could update our list of Hillary Clinton death hoaxes:

Hope you all had a good weekend!
