Did Chelsea Clinton *gasp* plan her pregnancy? Will being a grandmother affect Hillary Clinton's rumored campaign bid? And, perhaps most and least important, did Hillary Clinton hire someone to throw a shoe at her head while speaking at a conference in Las Vegas (and is that related to Benghazi)? These are all ridiculous questions that some media personalities are trying to turn into conspiracy theories, and Stephen Colbert is having a lot of fun mocking them.

"I don't mean to alarm you," began Colbert, "but Hillary Clinton continues to exist. She is the biggest threat to Republicans in 2016 other than Republicans in 2014."
