Democratic lawmaker says Trump could be a secret Clinton plant: Bill and Donald Ďare buddies [View all]
For a long time, theres been a conspiracy theory floating around that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump decided to run for office at the behest of the Clinton family as a way to destroy the GOP and pave the way for Hillary Clintons presidency.
Now at least one Democratic congresswoman is openly musing about the idea that this conspiracy has some truth to it.
In an interview with The National Review, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) talks about rumors shes heard about Trump being a secret Clinton plant and she cant dismiss the idea entirely.
There are some theories on the internet that this is Bill Clintons best political deal, says Kaptur, who supported Hillary Clintons rival Bernie Sanders in this years Democratic primary. That he and Donald are buddies, and they have a lot of similar friends in New York, and he has masterfully selected a friend who maybe by October will say, You know, this is very boring. And Im going to get out. Do I believe it 100 percent, do I believe it 2 percent? You know, you really wonder.
While its unlikely that Trump is in cahoots with Bill Clinton to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory this fall, it is true that Trump has acted exactly as youd expect a pro-Clinton plant to act. After all, hes sown division and chaos within the Republican Party and has also helped drive the GOPs favorable ratings to their lowest ever.
In other words, even if hes not a plant, hes doing a really good job of acting like one.
