Conspiracy theories are flying thick and fast accusing President Obama of being responsible for Justice Scalia’s death. The accusers include some of the very same conspiracy theorists Donald Trump has been actively courting to support his presidential campaign.
See, Justice Scalia was found with a pillow over his head, and to some folks, that can only mean one thing: He was murdered.
Even though smothering someone with a pillow almost always leaves external signs, the Fighting Keyboard Detectives decided that the Scalia family’s decision not to have an autopsy was, to say the least, ill-advised. And probably part of the coverup! It also turns out the owner of the ranch was wealthy Houston businessman John Poindexter who, along with member of his Vietnam unit, received a presidential medal for valor from President Obama in 2009. Ahah!
There have always been conspiracy theories, and always people who believed them. Research indicates it has to do with feeling out of control. With the craziness of the Republican presidential primary, it’s understandable that there is no shortage of people who feel out of control.
It’s important to remember that Donald Trump is courting such fringe types through his interviews with Alex Jones at Infowars.com, a site that is pushing this crazy conspiracy. The people who believe this story are the same people Trump’s campaign believes are most likely to think he would make a good president. For a change, Hillary Clinton isn’t targeted. But we wouldn’t be surprised if they found a way to drag her into it.
