News circulated on Twitter earlier that Bill Murray had supposedly shocked the nation by announcing that he's running for President for 2016.
Of course, a quick bit of research and you'll find that it is, of course, a complete hoax. Bill Murray is not running for President, nor has he announced that fact from his hometown in Charleston, South Carolina.
So Bill Murray's running for president of the USA in 2016... Can I move there and get residency to vote for him? https://t.co/lHJklGLeUB

Most of the articles linked to a fake version of NBC News or ABC News, both of which ran identical stories about Murray's supposed candidacy. So, in short, you can cancel your US Citizenship application because Dr. Venkman will not be running the free world any time soon.
Wouldn't it be great, though? There'd be screenings of Caddyshack and Stripes every night in The White House and Dan Aykroyd would be hired as Secretary Of State or something. It'd be so cool.
