Not to Scully all over you Mulders out there, but I just don’t buy the whole “Hillary body double” theory.
If you haven’t heard about it, some folks believe that Hillary’s near miraculous transformation from lifeless corpse to the peppy energetic broad who exited Chelsea’s building was a con.
According to their theory, the woman who emerged some ninety minutes later was a body double – a stand-in if you will.
I think there are way simpler explanations.
Occam’s Razor states when presented with a set of circumstances, the simplest explanation is probably the most likely.
And, unless the reason Hillary’s middle has been expanding is because she’s hiding a stand-in under her coat, the body double explanation just isn’t very simple.
There are definitely simpler explanations.
A shot of adrenaline and a nice thick layer of make-up seems far more plausible.
I’m sure by the time they whisked Hillary to Chelsea’s place, the news that her collapse was caught on film had reached Team Clinton.
These people are as dishonest as the day is long, but they are experts at damage control.
They knew they needed to get Hillary in front of the cameras ASAP to try and minimize the feeding frenzy that video would inspire.
So they fluffed out her hair, caked on some heavy-duty, mortician-grade make-up and shot her full of enough drugs to propel her out the door and onto the sidewalk for a brief wave to the reporters.
Either that or…
Nah. Probably not. I mean, there was no lightning storm in Manhattan on Sunday.
Any old how.
For the brief period Hillary was visible, there was no need to find a body-double.
They just needed her upright for a short time.
Trust me, if Hillary had stuck around long enough to actually hold an impromptu press conference, she would have wobbled and dropped all over again.
It was nothing more than window-dressing. Okay, probably a heavy, thick layer of window dressing, but window dressing nonetheless.
I find it far more plausible that Team Clinton travels with mortician-grade make-up and a potent pharmaceutical kit wherever they go than they’re hiding a body double.
Besides, a body-double is just one more person Team Clinton would have to threaten with death in order to ensure her silence.
And something tells me the list of people living under that threat is already getting far too large for one campaign to manage.
So why go to all that trouble?
