The story features a zoomed-in picture of Clinton with her ear circled, purporting to show a device hidden there.(Her ear just seems shiny, if anything.) Despite a lack of any evidence, the story claimed that the earpiece showed Clinton cheated during the forum or had a health issue.The article was retweeted by Donald Trump Jr. and A.J. Delgado, a Trump adviser. The story also led The Drudge Report, the influential conservative website.Delgado tweeted again about the earpiece, but then deleted her post.CNNs Brian Stelter noted that an earpiece never would have been allowed.For the record, and I can't believe I even have to say this, NBC would not have permitted a "#HillaryEarPiece" https://t.co/9JP4Lpl2xJ Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) September 8, 2016 Infowars Jones believes that 9/11 and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School were inside jobs, and has boasted about advising Donald Trump.Trumps campaign has given oxygen to those who traffic conspiracy theories in the dark corners of the internet, and the Republican nominee seems to relish the opportunity to bring these fringe claims into the mainstream.He has publicly questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and has refused to denounce those who still dispute Obamas birthplace. His campaign has also pushed the unsubstantiated claim that Clinton is medically unfit to be president. He said he saw thousands of Muslims cheering in New Jersey after 9/11' which also isnt true.Trump has suggested that the father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was an associate of John F. Kennedys assassin, and that climate change is a hoax concocted by the Chinese.His comments ' at times racist, xenophobic or sexist ' have motivated fringe groups, including white supremacists, to mobilize for his campaign and continue to churn out their crackpot theories.Clinton called out this issue in a speech in August, explaining how Trump has brought alt-right beliefsinto everyday public discourse, at the expense of any real policy proposals or ideas for how to move the nation forward.Earlier this week, she brushed off the endless number of conspiracy theories that Republicans have thrown at her.I believe I have created so many jobs in the sort of conspiracy theory machine factory because, honestly, they never quit, she said.Editors note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims1.6 billion members of an entire religionfrom entering the U.S. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
