Sen. Orrin Hatch Had To Send Google A Reminder That He Is, In Fact, Still Very Much Alive 😂

By Chet Dawson

Senator Orrin Hatch is, among many other things, an extraordinarily old man who was born in 1934. If someone hadn't been paying attention over the past few years, they might have been forgiven for assuming the longest-serving Republican Senator in American History had slid off this mortal coil. They might also have learned they were mistaken if they'd recently checked Google.

So, yeah. Orrin Hatch is alive, despite...well, despite a lot. Somebody edited Hatch's Wikipedia page with a phony death date, which then populated the Google's "Orrin Hatch" search result. Hatch's staff called out the error, then backed it up with proof of life, starting with the classic "here he is with today's newspaper" pic.
