You know, we cover a lotof stories from this desk,

but sometimes,to get the real (bleep),

you have to hit the streets.

And nobody's more streetthan Jordan Klepper.

Check it out.

Who says news has to be coldand on your screen?

I say it's warmand on your face.

The real news is on the streets,and it sounds like this.

Ba-ba, ba-ba.

This is Jordan KlepperFingers the Pulse.

(pulse beats rhythmically)

This past summer,Trump flag wavers

spouted a lot of theoriesabout Hillary Clinton's health.

We see the coughing fits.

She's had, it seems like,a number of blood clots.

TV REPORTER: What on earth could be the reason

behind Hillary Clinton's bizarre behavior?

Look, it almost seemsseizure-esque to me.

Turns out,they were sort of right.

We're now learning she's beendiagnosed with pneumonia.

If the crackpots halfway nailedone theory,

maybe their truth fingerswere in deeper than mine.

I had to find out.

I headed to Trump rallies in the crucial swing states

of Ohio and Wisconsin,

to discover what his supporters know.

that the rest of us don't.

Do you think it's worsethan pneumonia?

Uh, the way she looks, yes.

So what do you think's going on?

It could be Parkinson's.

It could be MS.

It could be AIDS.

What makes you thinkshe has AIDS?

Uh, the way her, uh,husband used to be.

-So you think Bill had AIDS?-Yes.

So how did Bill Clintonget AIDS?

Probably messing around with,uh, Magic Johnson.

That's the natural conclusion?


The Clintons and Magic Johnson.

What else do they know?

They were saying there was likea double of her.

-Do you think there wasa Hillary Clinton double? -Yeah.

I think anything's possiblewhen it comes to doubles.

Wow. A Clinton double.

Who knew?

So, I printed out two identical photos

to see if they could see what we couldn't.

Which one's the body double?

I'd say that one.

What is it about this onethat makes you think

it's not Hillary Clinton?

-That little thing on her cheekis very obvious. -This one.

And the scarring,or whatever this is

down on her throat is different.

They look a ton alike, right?

This looks a little bit younger.

-You think this looks younger?-Yeah.

But don't you think if you justlook at something

for long enough, and you kindof have a paranoid mind,

eventually,you'll find a difference

-to make a big deal of it.-Yeah, I think

something like that's possible.Yeah.

Which one are you moreattracted to?

-This one.-That one. Yeah.

Uncovering Hillary's doublesis one thing,

but what could they tell us

about our currentCommander in Chief?

Barack Obama is a Muslim,he's a terrorist.

Nobody will evertell me different.

We don't even know if he'sa citizen.

Yeah, if-if you don't lookat the birth certificate,

-there's almostno evidence there. -Exactly.

So, there's nothingBarack Obama could do

to prove that he was born here?

Uh, if there was, maybe,

witnesses that were attendantsat his birth.

Like his mother?You would listen to his mother?

No, no, no.She has motivation to lie.

So you don't trust, uh,

Donald Trump'sbirth certificate either.

Uh, yeah,because he's been here forever.

Well, how do you know?But how do... what's your proof?

Um, well, his parents, and...

But, no, but they...they're biased.

I'm talking about like peoplewho could be in the room.

Why would they be biased?

-Well, like... I'm just usingyour logic against you. -Okay.

He acts like a Muslim,he talks like a Muslim.

Uh, he alsodoes the, uh, Muslim principles

as far as jewelry is concerned.

-Jewelry?-Yeah, jewelry.

Certain months of the year,not wearing his wedding ring.

That's some...that's-that's a deep cut.

Do you want me to connect yournecklace to your Christianity?

Why would you do that?

Well, you just taught me it.

I didn't even know people wereconnecting jewelry to religion.

-Uh, Muslims don't wear...-Is that a Jew watch?

And one of the most unbelievablediscoveries yet.

-Barack Obama had a big partof 9/11. -Which part?

Not being around,always on vacation,

-never in the office.-Why do you think Barack Obama

wasn't in the Oval Officeon 9/11?

That I don't know.

I'd like to getto the bottom of that.

KLEPPER: Wow. Mind blown.

They also had new truths about the media cover-up

of Trump's surging popularity.

I don't think the mediareally portrays

all the African-Americansthat support Donald Trump.

-That's what I think.-Really? So...

what should we be portraying?

Where are theseAfrican-Americans?


KLEPPER: When you literallylook out across

the 400, 500 people here,

we don't see any.

They'll wave.

Wave, white people! Yeah!

It's like a Dave Mathewsconcert.

Except Dave Matthews

actually hasAfrican-Americans in his band.

Tell me when you see somebodywho is not white.

Here, right here.Thank you, brother.

Donald Trump don't even knowhow much a loaf of bread

or a dozen eggs cost.

So you don't... you don't evensupport Donald Trump?


Okay, so he didn't work.

Turns out they got one wrong.

But the rest of their theories

can be backed up with ironclad sources.

And what's your source?

Um, just Facebook or Twitter.I mean, I don't...

-Everything, and I...-So you'll look at, like, facts

-and (bleep) and you'llput it all together. -Exactly.

So, outside of having no proof,what proof do you have?

-I don't have any.-Don't have proof.

-My opinion.-Your opinion.

Do I have proof? No.Do I have articles? No.

But your mind is made upwithout any information.

My mind is made up.

KLEPPER: Good enough for me.
