George Soros, Billionaire Supporter Of Hillary Clinton, Killed In Plane Crash To Hungary Is A Hoax
By Shawn Rice
George Soros was killed in a plane crash while visiting Hungary, his home country, in March 2017 is a hoax. Reports that the billionaire business magnate and supporter of Hillary Clinton during the presidential election was killed while traveling to Hungary in March 2017 are fake news. Rather, he is still alive.
Where did this fake news originate? On March 18, 2017, the web site known as The Resistance: America’s Last Line of Defense (aka “The Resistance: Twisted News for Conservative Minds”) reported that Soros, the Hungarian-American billionaire and philanthropist, had died in a plane crash while on a trip to his home country. Here is some text from that fake story below.
“George Soros, the billionaire activist who funds all of the liberal trolls on social media and pays for the anti-Trump demonstrations that turn into riots, has been killed in a small engine plane crash while visiting his home country of Hungaria. His plane went down somewhere in the Alps and hasn’t been recovered, but satellite images confirm that there’s nothing left but rubble.
The Democrats and Soros’ people still haven’t confirmed the crash, but the word came from the tower that was guiding the plane in for a landing that it was his. There has been no radio contact with anyone near the crash site.
The loss of George Soros will eliminate more than 20 percent of the funding Democrats count on for their elections.”
However, there is no truth to the matter? Rather, as noted by Snopes, this report was picked up as news by multiple other dubious political sites (such as Conservative Info Corner and usanewsport.us). These sites picked it up despite the disclaimer on the America’s Last Line of Defense web site clearly identifies the site’s content as satirical.

Pictures that represent actual people should be considered altered and not in any way real.
America’s Last Line of Defense then spoofed their own story by posting a follow-up article positing that Soros had not died in a plane crash but had traveled to Hawaii to visit former President Barack Obama. You can read text from that story below.
“George Soros wasn’t on the plane that crashed in the Hungarian Alps, killing everyone on board. His spokesman just confirmed that Soros boarded a plane this morning for Hawaii, where he had lunch with Barack Obama and the federal judge who blocked President Trump’s new travel ban.
Soros said through the spokesman:
“I feel very fortunate to have survived this afternoon considering I was supposed to be on that plane. I am instead having brunch with friends and discussing politics and strategy. It is very unfortunate that the people who were killed won’t be there to help. Their families will be well taken care of.”
