Fake news writer Paul Horner, who claims he got Donald Trump elected, has been found dead in Arizona

AN INFAMOUS online troll and fake news writer was found dead in his Arizona home, authorities said.

Paul Horner, 38, who penned debunked articles about Bill Murray running for president and former US President Barack Obama opening a Muslim museum, was discovered unresponsive in his bed on September 19, according to the New York Post.

There were no signs of foul play, according to the Maricopa County medical examiner, and there was evidence the death could be due to an “accidental overdose.”

During the 2016 presidential election, Horner created a list of websites that appeared to be legitimate news sites to spread false information.

One article that claimed protesters who disrupted Donald Trump rallies were paid $3500 went viral on the internet and fuelled endless rumours about the alleged conspiracy.

Despite the fact that no evidence existed, Mr Trump repeated the charge about the paid protesters while on stage during one of his rallies.

Horner told the Washington Post last November that although the information was clearly fabricated, he made thousands of dollars each month from them because Mr Trump’s supporters were “easy to fool.”

In the same interview, Horner said he thought Mr Trump won the White House because of him.

“His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything,” Horner told the paper about Mr Trump.

Another notable fake news items claimed Horner was a Secret Service agent who penned a book revealing Obama to be a gay Muslim.

The Associated Press fact check from last December cited a Secret Service spokesman as saying records dating back to 1990 reveal no agent named Paul Horner.

", he made thousands of dollars each month from them because Mr Trump’s supporters were “easy to fool.”

Being easy to fool is not exclusive territory for Trump supporters. Look how many people voted for the lying Hillary.
