Barack Obama, George Soros and other Democrats involved in a plot to stage a military coup in connection with the recent U.S. government shutdown is fake news. There is no truth to a report that the former president and the Hungarian-American billionaire worked alongside key Democrats in a conspiracy to have the government shutdown in order to stage a military coup of President Donald Trump’s administration.
Where did the fake news originate? Reagan Was Right published the fake news article on Jan. 20, 2018, reporting that leading Democratic figures worked alongside Soros and Obama to order the government shutdown as revealed by the Secret Service. You can read the fake news below.
Barack Obama, George Soros, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer; all of these people have worlds to gain by ordering the Democrat party to stand down and allow the federal government to shut its doors. A startling report from the United States Secret Service is raising eyebrows all over Washington and the world:
“Be advised that actionable intel has been gathered from those friendly to ‘Juicer’ suggesting the possibility of a military coup against POTUS. Service policy dictates that those attatched directly to POTUS remain by his side to the bunker while all others secure the grounds of the White House. Anyone not already inside the building when a coup lockdown occurs is considered the enemy and will be shot on breach of the outer gate.”
That’s a pretty serious directive. “Actionable intelligence means they’ve deemed it to be serious. “Juicer” is the Secret Service codename for Kellyanne Conway. Trump ordered himself to be referred to as “POTUS” only after the first two, Cheeto and Big Mac, came across as insulting.
However, there is no truth to the above story. What was the problem with the story to make it false? For one, the Secret Service issued no such report that Democrats were staging a military coup. Additionally, there was no legitimate news coverage of such a thing happening. The government did experience a shutdown in January 2018 as Republicans and Democrats debated over immigration policy and other issues.
The Senate voted 81-18 on Jan. 22, 2018, to end the three-day-old government shutdown, with Democrats joining Republicans to fund the government through February 8 in exchange for a promise from Republican leaders to address the fate of young, undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.

Finally and most importantly, Reagan Was Right carries the following disclaimer:
Before you complain and decide satire is synonymous with “comedy”:
The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
