Jennifer Lawrence has a theory about Donald Trump's candidacy: It was 'Hillary's brilliant idea'

Actress Jennifer Lawrence is baffled by the success of Donald Trump's candidacy, and she has narrowed the possible explanations for his popularity down to two options:

Josh Hutcherson, the third lead in the massive [Hunger Games] franchise, can't quite believe Trump's run for the presidency is legitimate. "It's a publicity stunt," he says. "It can't be real."

Lawrence doesn't seem quite sure of his validity either. "I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment," she says. "It's either that or it's Hillary's brilliant idea." [Entertainment Weekly]

Lawrence isn't the only one to have posited the Clinton theory: Backed by Trump's political connections with the Clinton family and history of donating to Democrats, some on the right have speculated that Trump is running the most odious campaign possible in a conspiracy to drive reasonable voters toward presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

In the same interview, Lawrence also remarked that a Trump presidency would be "the end of the world."
