Donald Trump likes to think of himself as many things: a winner, a SUCCESSFUL businessman, a leader, the next president of the United States, a winner, an author, Batman,
husband father of Ivanka Trump, TV personality, a the sole winner of the entire universe and every other universe in existence. But what Donald tends to be oh-so-humble about is his best feature yet: Supreme Advocate of Conspiracy Theories. Here are some examples of The Donald's tomfoolery:

An ‘extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama‘s birth certificate is a fraud.

Massive combined inoculations to small children is the cause for big increase in autism….

If I were President I would push for proper vaccinations but would not allow one time massive shots that a small child cannot take – AUTISM.

Questioning whether Vince Foster's Death Was Actually A Suicide Or A Murder
When asked in an interview last week about the Foster case, Trump dealt with it as he has with many edgy topics — raising doubts about the official version of events even as he says he does not plan to talk about it on the campaign trail.
He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”
“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said, speaking of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons at the time. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.”
He added, “I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”
Claiming That Ted Cruz's Father Was Involved In The JFK Assasination
Talking to Fox News he's said, “His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being — you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous. What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up.”
Stating That The 2016 Presidential Election Is Rigged If Hillary Ends Up Winning
“I'm afraid the election's going to be rigged. I have to be honest,” Trump told voters in Ohio on August 8.
Mentioning That He Knows For A Fact That President Obama Did Not Write His Book ‘Dreams Of A Father' But That Bill Ayers Actually Wrote It
To Fox News he said, “He had a book, whether he wrote the book or not, but that book pushed him very hard and very strongly. And then they get into who really penned that book. It would be an interesting question for people to figure out. I don’t believe — I think somebody else had a lot to do with that book. I think he wrote the second book, which was certainly not a masterpiece. I'm very good at books, and it certainly wasn't a masterpiece.” He had stated in 2011 that “Bill Ayers wrote the book,” further elaborating that “Barack Obama wouldn’t be president” if it weren’t for the “super-genius” Bill Ayers.
Claiming That 100% Of Mosques Preach Hate
“If you look at the mosques and you go to various places and you look at what’s going on there and it’s virtually 100 percent. Certainly you can say radical Islam is a disaster right now, it’s causing tremendous problems worldwide, not just here. But the question was asked about Islam and there’s a great hatred [towards Americans], there’s no question about it.”
Folks, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
