What kind of presidential candidate would be stupid enough to hop head first onto the dumbest conspiracy theory of all time? Donald Trump, that’s what kind. When Hillary Clinton coughed in Cleveland, idiots all over the internet immediately decided she’s dying and unfit to hold office.
What turned out to be a scratchy throat that required a sip of water and about 2o seconds to overcome, Coughgate was off and running. Within minutes someone sent me a message that said, “F*ck. Hillary coughed. Now she can’t haz [sic] the presidency.” My response was, “sh*t. Ebola?” We had a good chuckle, knowing full-well that it would blow up into something it’s not: an issue.
We also knew that we’d be able to watch our country’s dumbest; those we can always rely on to provide us with fodder to write “look at how stupid these people are” pieces, would soon come through. We checked in on the usual suspects: Palin, little Palin, Bachmann, Nugent, The blowbags at Fox News. Who knew that our trolly-love prayers would be answered by none other than Donald Jackass Trump, Lord Cheeto himself, king of all numbskulls?
Here it is in all its glory; quite possibly the dumbest tweet of all time:
Mainstream media never covered Hillary’s massive “hacking”
or coughing attack, yet it is #1 trending. What’s up?

Look at all those likes and re-tweets. It’s almost as if this buffoon has a following of stupid people he panders to. What he also has, unfortunately for him, is a following of people with higher than a 4th-grade edumacation who just love to ridicule him for being this idiotic:
@realDonaldTrump As long as she doesn’t have bone spurs. Those are debilitating to public service.

@realDonaldTrump She has allergies, you pathetic excuse for a human being.
You are beyond unfit to be dog catcher, let alone a president.

@realDonaldTrump Why don’t you release your legitimate medical records from a legitimate doctor then we’ll discuss the coughing.

It really is just glorious to behold. Trump loves to walk head-first into the ridiculous and always has. From the birth of the birther movement to Coughgate, Trump never ceases to make an idiot of himself.
