He's known for his roles in Mary Poppins, Bye Bye Birdie, and of course The Dick Van Dyke Show. 

But according to the website, Dick Van Dyke died last Friday and left millions to the Trump Foundation.  


The article says: "Liberals have been going crazy on social media in the hours since the news of Van Dyke's demise."  

The article appears to quote Breitbart News saying, "In his will, Van Dyke specified that 'the total sale value of the house in Bermuda shall be donated to the Trump Foundation to help in their mission to make the country and world great again.'" 

It doesn't stop there.

The author goes on to claim Van Dyke donated $5 million to the Trump campaign, conservative causes, and the construction of a medium-sized golden statue of Melania Trump at the Dick Van Dyke museum in Mount Airy, Virginia.

The article ends by saying, "While Fake News CNN and MSNBC will have you believe that everyone hates him, the truth is President Trump is the best thing that has happened to these great United States and Dick Van Dyke Knows it."

But, let's take a closer look at this website.

At the very bottom, it says its satire. Not to mention, Dick Van Dyke didn't die!

The 92-year-old is still very much alive, making this story NOISE.
