Reports that former President Bill Clinton filed for divorce from former presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are false. The Clintons are not divorcing over “irreconcilable differences” or political scandals—this claim is nothing more than a hoax.
According to Snopes, the fake claim originated on Donald Trump Today, a disreputable news website. The article claimed that Clinton had filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 42 years over rumored, and since debunked, rumors. It purported:
For a big percentage of the American Population, the Clintons are criminals. They are guilty.
Now it seems that Bill Clinton himself is appalled at the actions of his own wife. A rash of bodies lately has culminated in not only the loss of his child, Danney Williams, to suicide, but to the discovery that Michael Ascott, another love child from the 1990s, was murdered and buried in a shallow grave at just 8-years-old. A letter left behind by his mother, Marie Ascott, pointed the finger directly at Hillary Clinton.
All of this seems to be too much for Bill Clinton, who filed for divorce in Arkansas this morning, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause. Clinton’s spokesman, James McMartin, told reporters from TMZ that the Clintons weren’t the same couple they used to be and that they had simply grown apart.
There is no truth to any of the claims in the article. Donald Trump Today states in their disclaimer that their articles may not be accurate:
All the information on this website is published in good faith and for general information purpose only. DonaldTrumpToday.co does not make any warranties about the completeness, reliability and accuracy of this information. Any action you take upon the information you find on this website (DonaldTrumpToday.co), is strictly at your own risk.
Similar fake reports falsely claimed that Hillary Clinton filed for divorce from Bill Clinton after her 2016 presidential election loss, First Lady Melania Trump filed for divorce from President Donald Trump over her new FLOTUS role and former President Barack Obama filed for divorce from Michelle Obama over infidelity. All of these reports are fabricated.
The Clintons will celebrate their 42nd wedding anniversary on Oct. 11.
