Hillary Clinton Conspiracy Theories: Is Donald Trump A Clinton Plant?

Charisse Van Horn

There are so many Hillary Clinton conspiracy theories circulating, there isn't room enough for all of them in one article. The earliest conspiracy theory to surface regarding the 2016 election, is that Donald Trump isn't a genuine candidate, but a stooge to get Hillary elected also referred to as a Clinton plant. At first the idea seems absurd, but once you think about the statements Trump has made and the way he hasn't attacked Hillary when it would be in his best interest to do so, you must wonder why. Why does Donald Trump say the things he says and do the things he does? The theory isn't that far off and it's not just people wearing aluminum foil hats hiding in their soundproof basements thinking about it. BBC News reported on a tweet that former candidate Jeb Bush tweeted supposing the theory back in 2015.

"Mr Trump has a close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton. They were at his last wedding. He has contributed to the Clintons' foundation. He has contributed to Mrs Clinton's Senate campaigns. All of this is very suspicious."

Donald Trump hasn't spent time attacking Hillary Clinton like you would expect him to do. When he has a speech he runs on and on and has a difficult time reading something prepared.It would appear that after having so many gaffes and having offended so many people, Trump would take steps to maximize his time.The idea that Trump doesn't prepare for his speeches, but tends to go off on any tangent he wants, can make you wonder if he is even taking his position seriously.

Trump has said terrible, shocking things. Interestingly, the most terrible and shocking statements haven't been made towards Hillary Clinton or the DNC leak. Instead, the most shocking statements have been towards Republicans, John McCain, a Gold Star family, women in general, Muslims, Mexicans and more. It seems that Trump's strategy is to attack everyone else and then when there's a moment left over, focus on Hillary. This is not the way presidential campaigns are run or won. What would the impact have been if over the past six months, Donald Trump had limited all his negative, rude and offensive remarks solely for Hillary? Why is there a need to attack everyone else?

What do you think?

Do you agree with the conspiracy theories that say Donald Trump is secretly trying to destroy the Republican party and get Hillary Clinton elected?

Many people say they don't care for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Is it because they're on the same side?
