Hoax or Fact:
A 'breaking' news in circulation online claims that former USA President George H. W. Bush has passed away on Saturday 11 Feb. 2017, at the age of 93, after suffering a heart attack. It is also said that many people have conveyed their condolence messages, including President Donald Trump on his Twitter handle. No, the death reports of former U.S President George H.W. Bush are hoaxes.
The stories about George H.W. Bush's death actually originated from few fake news websites mimicking mainstream outlets like Fox News, CNN and others. The people who bought these stories went onto share the 'news' on their social networking profiles like Twitter and Facebook, making it popular. However, as of this writing, there's no such real news in mainstream. President Donald Trump too did not mourn Bush’s death on his Twitter profile. Earlier in Jan. 2017, as reported in the Houston Chronicle website chron.com, George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush were hospitalized in Houston. But the nation’s oldest living former President and his lady were reported to be in stable condition.
