On Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting Clinton tweeted Sept. 1, “Hurricane Dorian has already devastated the Bahamas and is about to devastate the Great State of Florida. Please help us help the victims by giving a huge donation to Clinton Foundation Today. We rebuilt Haiti and we’ll rebuild Nassau and Orlando.” It was from a parody account with the moniker @MadamPresident to dupe users. Clinton’s real account is @HillaryClinton.
