A conspiracy theory formerly the preserve of the fringe right that claims Hillary Clinton has multiple clones is quickly gaining traction.
When Hillary Clinton emerged from her daughter’s apartment on Sunday after her Parkinsons-pneumonia-induced fainting spell the alt-right section of the twitter-sphere immediately proclaimed the emerging Clinton to be an intruder.
The idea was dismissed by super-intelligent media personalities but is now looking more and more credible.

“It now seems plausible that there are in fact five Hillary Clintons,” a cloning expert has said, “apart from the original Clinton.”
“We suspect that Clinton originally created the clones so she could deal with the heavy workload and stress of a presidential campaign along with the duties of being a wife, parent and grandmother.”
Hillary Clinton is believed to have been approached by maverick geneticist Dr. Owen Leeds who offered her the solution to her problems – cloning.
“What’s happened here,” says Political Commentator Dough Linward, “is basically exactly like the 1996 Harold Ramis film Multiplicity. Right down to the copies being inferior to the original.”
“In this case, or course, the original, wasn’t so hot to begin with.”
It is believed that far from easing Clinton’s workload the clones have in fact made matters worse. Each clone personifies a Clintonian trait.
Clone 1 enters the apartment, clone 4 leaves the apartment
“We’ve studied the pictures and the video,” says Linward, “and it seems clear to us that there’s a snobby-bitch clone, an incompetent useless wonk clone, a pathological liar clone, a self-pitying victim clone and, finally, an evil murderous scumbag clone.”
“That’s the one that intentionally infects children with pneumonia.”
“The good news is that if Hillary Clinton drops out of the race, we have five back-up Clinton’s ready to take her place,” said a Democratic party apparatchik.
