Wednesday's episode of The Daily Show didn't have to create crazy fiction or conspiracy theories to malign Hillary Clinton. That's because Correspondent Jordan Klepper found plenty of Trump supporters to do it all by themselves. It was a spectacular display of the rampant ignorance and misinformation that has run amok among the supporters of Donald Drumpf.

Here's some of the most hilarious, yet terrifying assertions made by these regressive loons. The first part of the segment addressed all the health conspiracies the right has pushed about the female POTUS hopeful. After a female supporter mentions MS and Parkinsons, Jordan finds the grand champion of geniuses: a very creative MTV (Male Trump Voter). Look for him again later in the post.

KLEPPER: Why do you think she has AIDS?

MTV: Because, uh, because of the way her husband used to be.

KLEPPER: So you think Bill has AIDS?

MTV: Yes

KLEPPER: So how did Bill Clinton get AIDS?

MTV: Probably messing around with Magic Johnson.

KLEPPER: That's the natural conclusion?

MTV: Yes

KLEPPER: Interesting.

I'd say it's less interesting than it is incredibly frightening that these folks are functioning members of society (or so it would appear) who walk among us with absolute certitude that their convoluted thinking is perfectly normal. And, they vote.

Next, correspondent Klepper finds a simple yet effective way to debunk the body double insanity. He prints two IDENTICAL pictures of HRC and asks another well-informed Trumper to point out which one is the body double. The man is certain the photo on the left is the body double. This second MTV found some physical abnormalities he thought were present in one of the photos, so Jordan informs him how he likely came to that idiotic conclusion and naturally, the irony went right over his head.

KLEPPER: They look a ton alike right?

He concurred and then Klepper put the hammer down by reiterating the man's own reasoning, which didn't seem to make a dent in the level of crazy.

KLEPPER: But don't you think if you just look at something long enough and you have a paranoid mind, eventually you'll find a difference? To make a big deal of it?

MTV2: Yeah, I think that's possible.

The man points to the identical photo on the left, which makes it all the more unsettling that these folks have the same rights to vote as people who live in a reality-based world. TDS correspondent Klepper used this same technique to show the nonsense surrounding the birth certificate controversy and reveals a brand new crazy theory: President Obama removes his wedding ring during certain times, which means he follows the doctrine specified by Islamic dogma. Klepper reveals that identifying a belief system based on the presence or absence of jewelry is absolutely ridiculous, which still eludes these Trump supporters.

The last popular conspiracy that Klepper addressed highlighted the irrelevancy of time to the typical Trump supporter. More specifically, they blame anything that happened during the Bush 43 Administration on the Clintons and the Obama Administration.
We hear some more 'thoughts' from the original MTV, who was asked why President Obama didn't lift a finger to stop the 9-11-2001 attacks. Klepper suggests to the same man who created the aforementioned Magic Johnson/Clinton theory that Barack Obama was remiss in the tragic events of fifteen years ago. That Kenyan guy just couldn't be bothered to do his job. The cause?

MTV: Not being around, always being on vacation. Never in the office.

KLEPPER: Why do you think that Barack Obama wasn't in the Oval Office on 9-11-(2001)?

MTV: That I don't know. I'd like to get to the bottom of that.

KLEPPER: Wow, mind blown!

President Obama had to be responsible and the part he played was a two-term GWB impersonator? He attributes the wrong qualities to the man who assumed office many years later, much like how Drumpf always projects his shortcomings on his opponent.

Did you know that the complicit media is just hiding the truth that Trump has plenty of African American supporters? To prove this idea, one woman finds a Black man who happened to be there, who was clearly not a Trump supporter. That still didn't matter, the media is the problem.

The 'poorly educated' were happy to tell the correspondent that they have acquired their way of thinking from pure suggestion and social media based solely on opinions. They admittedly live in a fantasy world and are impermeable to factual interventions, so don't bother trying.

Just get out the vote and encourage as many people to take this election more seriously. Please, help prevent this fact-free group of Americans from backing a winner.
