I had a vision. I’m not sure of the year, but it was some time before 1997. I was half dozing in front of the TV, and Jerry Falwell was on the screen hawking a video that supposedly proved that the death of Vince Foster was not a suicide. In the vision, I saw the fires of hell rising around Falwell. I cannot say what the eternal resting place of Falwell, who died in 2007, is, but what you can take away from this story is that I take a dim view of slanderers.
Vince Foster is not a name I think about much, but apparently old conspiracy theories die hard, and don’t die at all in the mind of Donald Trump. In an interview with the Washington Post Monday, Trump revived the old Internet conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton was involved in the death of Foster.
Brett Neely of National Public Radio ran with this story, and wrote his own piece titled, “A Guide To The Many Conspiracy Theories Donald Trump has Embraced.”
I wonder how the coalition of whack-job conspiracy theorists and white racists will play in the general election.
