Conspiracy Theory Says Clinton Colluded With Moderator To Rig Debate

The internet and social media never seems to run out of topics to base conspiracy theories on, and outside of a revolutionary shift in the thinking of virtually everyone on the planet, it’s unlikely they’ll stop making the rounds anytime soon. One of the latest ones to make the rounds centers on the recent presidential debate, and specifically how things may not have been on the up and up.

As Good points out, there’s a viral video going around that purports to expose the collusion between Hillary Clinton and debate moderator Lester Holt of NBC News. The theory goes that there were coordinated hand signals that Clinton would use when it was time to turn things back in her favor. The video even pinpoints a specific instance in which she scratched her nose as the a-ha moment.

That’s a pretty startling accusation, but an investigative website took a look and claims it’s a bunch of hot air.

“The creator of the video simply strung together several unrelated events — Clinton scratching her face, Holt making a comment, Clinton replying to Trump — and then claimed that they were somehow connected to a furtive signaling plot without providing any proof,” the site concluded.

While things did appear to fall in Clinton’s favor during the debate, the reality is that simply could have been a reflection of her being more prepared for the format and line of questioning. That doesn’t make her any more or less qualified to move into the Oval Office than Donald Trump, and we’ll have to wait and see how rounds two and three turn out.
