Conspiracy Theorists Say Bump Under Clinton's Red Jacket Wasn't A Microphone

By

Conspiracy theorists think they've discovered the source of Hillary Clinton's power.

When she bent over at the presidential debate the other day, Clinton revealed a strange device running along her back.

The obvious answer: a microphone. But, the fun answer? Well, take your pick.

People think it could be anything from a cough prevention machine to actual puppet strings.

Let's look at some of the more outrageous theories:

Comment from discussion "Coughing prevention machine".

Comment from discussion "Coughing prevention machine".

Comment from discussion "Coughing prevention machine".

Comment from discussion "Coughing prevention machine".

Please... just keep your health in order for a few more months, Hillary -- America needs you.

People started to wonder what is holding this woman together after she collapsed at a 9/11 memorial service.

Her doctor then revealed Clinton was suffering from pneumonia.

At the time, Dr. Lisa Bardack said in a statement,

Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.

Campaign officials canceled a two-day trip to California, where she was set to make a speech.

Shortly after Clinton collapsed, she sought refuge at her daughter's house nearby.

When she re-emerged conspiracy theorists had a field day, claiming she never actually came out the house and was replaced by a body double.

Wait. Does her ear lobe look bigger in the left picture compared to the right? And, come to think of it, her nose does seem slightly pointier...

The evidence is hard to ignore.

Conspiracy theorists point to her fingers...

And nose...

And her weight...
