The government of Saudi Arabia charging Hillary Clinton with the murder of 17 young Saudi Arabian women is satirical news. There is no truth to a report that the former U.S. Secretary of State and 2016 U.S. presidential candidate was being charged with the deaths of 17 women who were killed when a freighter chartered by The Clinton Foundation crashed. Clinton has been the subject of many fake news, tweets, photographs and memes. This is just another one in a long list of them.
Where did this satirical news originate? America’s Last Line of Defense published the satirical news article on June 9, 2018, reporting that Clinton was facing charges and possible extradition to Saudi Arabia as a result of the deaths of many Saudi Arabian women from a sunken freighter chartered by The Clinton Foundation. You can read the satirical news below.
The Saudi Arabian government has just filed charges against Hillary Clinton for murder. 17 Saudi Arabian women, all between the ages of 18 and 20, were killed when their freighter went down in the Sea of Caledonia. The freighter was chartered by the Clinton Foundation.
The Saudi Supreme Fallah, Mustafa al Daweid, said that Clinton wasn’t just guilty by association:
“These girls were being sent to the Caledonian Emirate by Hillary Clinton personally. The documents we have uncovered show her signature on the manifest and a transfer to her personal bank account for $20 million. She is guilty of murder and will be executed if ever she steps foot in Saudi Arabia again.
Clinton shrugged at the charges, called them insane and said she’d be happy to skip Saudi Arabia on her next overseas trip:
“I’m just fine with not having to pretend to be submissive to men. As for the charges…just add them to the list of conspiracy theories about me.”
However, there is no truth to the above story. What is wrong with the above story to make it false? Of course, there is no legitimate news coverage of such a story that Clinton was facing charges by the government of Saudi Arabia over the deaths of 17 women. A simple search of The New York Times and Fox News comes up with no results about Clinton, charges and the Saudi Arabian government.
Finally, The Last Line of Defense carries the following disclaimer on its website:

Here are some reactions to the satirical news on social media.
The Clinton Foundation builds partnerships of great purpose between businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to work faster, better, and leaner; to find solutions that last; and to transform lives and communities from what they are today to what they can be, tomorrow.
