The Daily Show Visits Trump Rally To Hear Wildest Clinton & Obama Conspiracy Theories

Hear some of the wildest conspiracy theories being tossed around at Trump rallies, courtesy of The Daily Show.


After Hillary Clinton made an early exit from a 9/11 memorial service, initially citing heat exhaustion, Trump supporters began speculating that she might be suffering from a more severe diagnosis that's being kept from the public. Soon after, doctors revealed that she had come down with pneumonia, for which she proceeded to take a few days rest. The Trump camp's fortuitous foresight of Clinton being sicker than she was letting on inspired The Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper to find out what other wisdom they might have that's unavailable to the wider public. He went to Trump rallies in Ohio and Wisconsin to get the scoop on the hottest conspiracy theories involving Clinton and Barack Obama. As expected, he got some doozies. 

Upon being asked whether Clinton may have a condition far worse than pneumonia, one man suggested that she could have AIDS due to "the way her husband used to be," specifically mentioning his time spent "messin' around with Magic Johnson." Klepper then unlocked a seemingly popular belief that Clinton is using a body double. He printed out two identical images of the Democratic nominee, though members of Trump's faithful were still readily able to point out differences between the two photos. As for Obama, there were a handful of respondents who were adamant of his Muslim faith, including one man who cited his alleged commitment to the pseudo-Muslim practice of not wearing one's wedding ring during certain months of the year.
