We’ve all heard the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is a secret Hillary Clinton supporter, a Democratic mole planted within the Republican Party with the sole purpose of causing havoc thus, ensuring a Hillary Clinton win in November. That theory is often mentioned in the conservative blogosphere. But when a prominent Democrat pushes that theory,, then maybe, just maybe it’s time to pay attention.
In an interview with The National Review, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) talks about rumors she’s heard about Trump being a secret Clinton plant — and she can’t dismiss the idea entirely.
“There are some theories on the internet that this is Bill Clinton’s best political deal,” says Kaptur, who supported Hillary Clinton’s rival Bernie Sanders in this year’s 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 I’m going to get out.’ Do I believe it 100 percent, do I believe it 2 percent? You know, you really wonder.”
While it’s 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 you’d expect a pro-Clinton plant to act. After all, he’s sewn division and chaos within the Republican Party and has also helped drive the GOP’s favorable ratings to their lowest ever.0
