Hillary Clinton impersonator has to assure people she didn't act as candidate's body double

It wasn't long after Hillary Clinton was rushed from the 9/11 Memorial on Sunday that her doctor announced the Democratic candidate had been diagnosed with pneumonia the previous Friday. But while some people are annoyed that Clinton is only now coming clean, others aren't buying that story in the slightest. Some think that the Hillary Clinton that exited Chelsea Clinton's apartment with a cheery wave Sunday afternoon was actually a body double:

In fact, BuzzFeed reports that the story got so much traction that a California-based Hillary Clinton impersonator actually had to confirm she wasn't a body double after conspiracy theorists rooted her up online:

Still, some Republicans haven't bought the pneumonia diagnosis either: "They've tried to attribute the cough to bronchitis, they've tried to attribute it to pneumonia. But I sat in the Benghazi hearing for three hours, and she sat there and coughed her way through that," said Rep. Gary Palmer (Ala.).

Conspiratorial as that may be, it is still a long way to suggesting the Republican Party is not taking on one Hillary Clinton, but two.
