Police say that a 28-year-old North Carolina man went to a pizzeria in Washington, D.C., yesterday (December 4th) because of a fake news story about Hillary Clinton, and fired an assault rifle when he got there. No one was hurt. Edgar Maddison Welch reportedly walked into the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in a wealthy area of D.C. and pointed his weapon in the direction of an employee, who was able to run away and contact police. At least one shot from the rifle was fired into the floor. According to police, Welch was investigating a fake conspiracy theory that circulated online ahead of last month's election that Clinton was running a child sex ring out of the pizzeria.

Santa Claus is apparently selling some real estate on the website Zillow. The company added an off-market listing for Santa Claus' North Pole house.

They even note the kitchen features an oven with "12 different cookie settings." The "Zestimate" for buying the home is $656,957. (Huffington Post)
