For weeks, Hillary Clinton has been dismissing questions about her health and that has instigated a lot of conspiracy theories. Hillary Clinton nearly fainted at a 9/11 memorial event on Sunday in New York, went to her daughter’s apartment to rest, and hours later, sent out a body double who was thinner and younger looking than her. After the US Presidential candidate’s fainting at the 9/11 memorial service, questions were raised about her recurring health issues as well as another interesting aspect. After Clinton nearly fainted at the memorial event on Sunday in New York, she went to her daughter’s residence to rest, and a few hours later, she allegedly sent out a body double and there have been claims that the person coming out looked thinner and younger than her. The rumour made waves on social media, so much so, that #Hillarybodydouble started trending on Twitter.
Everyone was asking, ‘Who is the other Hillary?’ Many people her to be a certain Teresa Barnwell, who has been impersonating Hillary for more than two decades. Interestingly, Barnwell was reported to be in Los Angeles at that time for a Lip Sync Battle show. Barnwell might also have added fuel to the rumour fire. When she got the news of Clinton’s health and the subsequent rumours about a body double, she took to Twitter and posted pictures of herself from New York which she took a few days back. She wrote in the caption, “Maybe I was in NYC today…you never know!” Later she deleted the tweet.
While Clinton’s campaign has been mired with many conspiracy theories, this must have been a good day at work for Barnwell. Recently there have been reports on the probability of Clinton being replaced the Democratic Party if she is forced out of the Presidential race due to illness.
