There’s no denying that the government has control over us and that they can use media in order to feed us lies from time to time. However, this has caused certain people to become too skeptical of everything they hear, so they try connecting dots in order to create a conspiracy theory.

Donald Trump is a Plant
Certain conspiracy theorists are noting that Donald Trump’s candidacy wasn’t ever meant to be successful. It was actually only started in order to provide Hillary Clinton with an easy win by matching her up with an opponent that constantly makes outrageous statements.

Some also believe that Trump started his campaign only to use media in order to increase his power in the business world.
