When Hillary Clinton collapsed outside a 9/11 memorial service on Sunday, questions on the seriousness of her health moved front and centre.
The 68-year-old was taken to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment and later emerged outside the building a few hours later at 11.45am, smiling, posing for photographs with a child and telling reporters: “I’m feeling great. It’s a beautiful day in New York.”
Doctors have since said Clinton is suffering from ‘walking pneumonia’ brought on by seasonal allergies, but despite appearing alive and well, conspiracy theorists believe that the Democrat presidential nominee is suffering from an illness much more serious and has subsequently been replaced by a body double.
Trump fans, and anyone else who loves conspiracies, began to tweet about the theory using the hashtag #HillarysBodyDouble.

Her earlobes were a real giveaway, apparently:

And the fact that the body double’s index finger is not at all like the real Hillary’s:

Don’t forget her legs were skinnier, too:

They’ve even outed who they think is Hillary’s body double:

And while all that may seem ridiculous, they do make a good point with this:
WHO LETS A PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE WALK OUT OF A BUILDING WITHOUT ANY SECRET SERVICE? THIS IS NOT HILLARY!!https://t.co/mnhZffEPli

And it’s all apparently to throw everyone off because Hillary either has Parkinson’s or is dead or dying.
But all of this pales in comparison to the conspiracy theory that the Democrat presidential nominee is actually a robot.
