"The O'Reilly Factor" goes full conspiratorial, questions "the timing" of Chelsea Clinton's pregnancy

Hillary's campaign casted her as a "tough grandma," so it only makes sense the DNC would force Chelsea to concieve

During a segment of "The O'Reilly Factor" Monday night devoted to what Fox News producers consider a much-needed attempt to humanize Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, guest host Eric Bolling and former George W. Bush press secretary Dana Perino engaged in the sort of conspiratorial thinking rational people abandoned in 1996.

Perino noted that the Clinton campaign is casting its candidate as a "tough grandma," so news that Chelsea Clinton is pregnant again helps push that narrative.


"Is that timed out?" Bolling asked. "Did they do the math?"

"I would never suggest such a thing," Perino said, despite having just suggested that very thing.

Bolling noted that the Democratic National Committee "timed those debates for NFL weekends and 'Star Wars,' so who knows? They're good at timing on the left."


"They have that down," Perino replied, again saying the very thing she said she would never suggest.
