Conspiracy Theory

Despot-elect Donald Trump has chosen Fox News contributor Kathleen Troia "KT" McFarland to serve as deputy national security adviser under retired General Michael Flynn.

Flynn has questionable viewpoints of his own, but McFarland apparently believes Hillary Clinton spied on her with black helicopters.

When McFarland ran for the Senate seat that was once occupied by Clinton, McFarland told her supporters that Clinton was spying on her.

At one Suffolk County event, McFarland told a crowd of local Republicans that Clinton’s team was flying helicopters over her Southampton home and had spies perched across the street from her Manhattan apartment taking pictures into her bedroom. McFarland’s campaign later insisted that she was joking.

Here's a regular reminder than Clinton Derangement Syndrome predated Obama Derangement Syndrome by over a decade.

Republicans cannot rationalize the existence of competent governance without inventing a conspiracy theory about it.

    I don’t think we’ve heard the last about the damn e-mail.

    KT McFarland is that relative who forwards crazy, all-caps chain emails to everyone they know.

    Why do I hear “Entry of the Gladiators” whenever I think of McFarland? (If you want to laugh until you cry, go to this thread, scroll down to the second comment by “Capn”—who asked the initial question—and feed his/her five-line transcription into your favorite text-to-speech software. My ribs still hurt.)

    Our government is turning into an episode of The X Files. One of the ironic, comical ones. This is not going to end well.

      Or a Coen Brothers movie…

      • one of the two. Or some horrible combination.
