Jordan Klepper of "The Daily Show" has done yeoman's work surveying Donald Trump supporters this election season, and his latest dispatch may provide the most hilarious (or depressing) insight into the base of the modern-day Republican Party yet.

Klepper attended a rally for the Republican presidential nominee to ask some of his most ardent supporters about their crazy conspiracy theories surrounding Hillary Clinton's health.

"It turns out Trump's followers sort of predicted Hillary's health problems before they were revealed," Klepper said. "I went to a Trump rally to find out what they know that the rest of us don't."

"It could be AIDS," one Trump supporter said of Democratic presidential nominee Clinton's recent bout with pneumonia.

"What makes you think she has AIDS?" Klepper then asked.

"They way her husband used to be," the Trump supporter responded, adding that former president Bill Clinton likely contracted AIDS from "messing around with that Magic Johnson."

Obama "acts like a Muslim. He talks like a Muslim. He also does the Muslim principles as far as jewelry is concerned," another Trump supporter said matter-of-factly, with a smile.

When pressed by Kleeper how she knew this to be true, she offered little in the way of a reputable source: “Um, just Facebook or Twitter. Everything,”

“So you’ll look at facts and bullshit and you’ll put it all together?” Klepper asked her.

“Exactly,” she replied.
