A self-described "fake news" writer, and no he didn't write for CNN or the New York Times, has been found dead in Phoenix of an apparent "accidental overdose." According to The Hill, Paul Horner often said that he felt "responsible for Trump's election" because of how many of his fake news stories went viral over Facebook and Twitter but an immediate inconsistency arises when you realize the "Horner" doesn't sound Russian at all.

Here's more from The Hill:

Horner, whose fake news stories often went viral on Facebook and Twitter, told The Intersect, a Washington Post blog, last year that Trump supporters were especially susceptible to being fooled.



“My sites were picked up by Trump supporters all the time,” Horner said. “I think Trump is in the White House because of me."



“His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything. His campaign manager posted my story about a protester getting paid $3,500 as fact. Like, I made that up. I posted a fake ad on Craigslist.”



Horner also said at the time he published his hoax stories to make Trump supporters look bad.



“I thought they’d fact-check it, and it’d make them look worse,” Horner said. “I mean, that’s how this always works: Someone posts something I write, then they find out it’s false, then they look like idiots.



“But Trump supporters — they just keep running with it! They never fact-check anything! Now he’s in the White House. Looking back, instead of hurting the campaign, I think I helped it. And that feels [bad].”

Good grief.

The Trump supporters I am acquainted with do more info-digging and fact checking than anyone else I know !!
This has to be fake news.
Facepalm
Authorities discovered Horner dead in bed. His brother, JJ, said he died peacefully in his sleep.

County spokesman Fields Moseley says the cause and manner of Horner's death aren't yet determined. But Casey suggested that there was 'evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose'. There were no signs of foul play.

Moseley says the Maricopa County medical examiner is awaiting test results. Casey says Horner's family has indicated he used and abused prescription drugs.

Horner was known for his false stories that often went viral and misled people.

In 2016, Horner posted a fake story to several of his sites claiming a former Secret Service agent outed President Barack Obama as a gay man and a radical Muslim.
