If only we were so lucky. Comedian Tyler Fischer posed as a BBC reporter and walked the streets acting as if he was a reporter with breaking news.
The news was that Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton had dropped out of the presidential race, leaving Donald Trump as the likely 45th President of the United States. The reactions were priceless.

The reactions varied from angry and upset to overjoyed and excited. A group of people seemingly were thrilled at the news that Hillary Clinton had to suspend her campaign. They asked Fischer if the former secretary of state was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He quickly retorted that Clinton actually has the Zika virus.

Some didn’t believe the news that she dropped out of the race. One man said, “Hillary would continue to run even of she was dead.” Which, in reality, would probably be true.
While some were thrilled to hear of Hillary’s “decision,” some Never Trump folk felt the opposite. Even people visiting from other countries admitted they were worried that Trump could become president. One French couple told Fischer, “they were very scared…”
One kid had a great response when people said they were leaving the country if Trump won. He said, “Canada will probably build a wall to keep us out.”
The real sad thing about the whole hoax is that people actually believed that a presidential nominee one month out of the election in November would drop. But, nevertheless, the video is entertaining and does show just how gullible people can be that do no research for themselves.
