From the WaPo:
A North Carolina man was arrested Sunday after he walked into a popular pizza restaurant in Northwest Washington carrying an assault rifle and fired one or more shots, D.C. police said. The man told police he had come to the restaurant to “self-investigate” a false election-related conspiracy theory involving Hillary Clinton that spread online during her presidential campaign.
The incident caused panic, with several businesses going into lockdown as police swarmed the neighborhood after receiving the call shortly before 3 p.m...
...The restaurant’s owner and employees were threatened on social media in the days before the election after fake news stories circulated claiming that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief were running a child sex ring from the restaurant’s backrooms...
But is it just the low-fo 'ins that don't know the difference between Breitbart and the Grey Lady that swallow and wulitzer this codswallop?
Well, actually, no:
...Even Michael Flynn, a retired general whom President-elect Trump has tapped to advise him on national security, shared stories about another anti-Clinton conspiracy theory involving pedophilia. None of them were true...
At one time you might say that this type of thing is one of those examples of truth being stranger than fiction.
Now, however, I'm not so sure that is even possible anymore.
Which is most definitely not a good thing.
