Donald Trump supporters are getting increasingly desperate in their attempts to smear Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump associate Roger Stone, a veteran Republican dirty trickster, went on Alex Jones’ “Infowars” to insinuate that Clinton wasn’t being honest about her ethnicity. Both Trump and Stone are regular guests on Jones’, a conspiracy theorist, show.
“I have sources within the intelligence community who tell me that Hillary’s real father was actually a black man,” said Stone. “Her mother had an affair with a black man, but her family covered it up because it would have ruined her future political career.”
Stone added that there were indicators of Clinton’s black heritage.
“Hillary has a large rear end, a trait that is common among blacks,” said Stone. “She also likes dancing and is sympathetic to the Black Lives Matter movement.”
This is not the first time Trump supporters have resorted to outlandish smears. White nationalist William Johnson has recorded robocalls in Utah claiming that independent candidate Evan McMullin is gay. He also smeared McMullin’s mother.
“Evan has two mommies. His mother is a lesbian, married to another woman,” says Johnson in the call, according to the New York Times.
McMullin, a former CIA agent, is successfully challenging Trump in Mormon-dominated Utah. He denied the accusations.
Will Utah GOP leaders continue to stand with @realDonaldTrump and white nationalists' as they attack my faith and spread baseless lies?
