Gordon Klingenschmitt, former pastor and now Colorado state representative, is very, very afraid of Hillary Clinton. She must keep him up at night hallucinating or something, because his latest is even more insane than some of his other rants, even the exorcism he performed on YouTube.

But now, he's sure she's going to kill him if she gets elected. Wait till you see what he cites as evidence.

Klingenschmitt insisted that he was not drawing any conclusions and was simply reporting the “facts” that dozens of people with ties to the Clinton have wound up dead … and then proceeded to speculate that Clinton was tied to the deaths of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Scalia.

“It is interesting that John Kennedy Jr., his plane exploded in mid-air just before Hillary Clinton announced that she was running for senator in New York,” he said. “What’s the timing on that? And now Justice Scalia? What’s the timing on that? Three days after Hillary’s campaign manager talks about ‘wet works’ and the reply comes, ‘Buckle down for the weekend’ and then Scalia dies with a pillow over his head? Interesting. How do they know about these things?”

The sad part of this rant is how many people actually use it to justify their own irrational fears.

I spent 15 minutes or so last Friday on a BBC radio show with "Lynn," a Trump supporter. During the course of our conversation, Lynn stated with absolute certainty that Hillary Clinton "had 29 bodies in the ground." (My response was appropriate

Damn. Why would Hillary go to all the trouble and expense to run a campaign against Donald Trump? Clearly with her power, she could just kill all her opponents and proclaim herself Queen, am I right?

Can you help us out?
