Anyone old enough to remember the Clinton administration knows that the “vast right-wing conspiracy” was a creation of Hillary Clinton to explain the persecution of her husband for having an affair with an intern, not to mention other Clinton scandals. At CNN’s #DemTownHall Wednesday night, host Anderson Cooper asked Clinton if she still believed in the vast right-wing conspiracy, to which she answered, “Don’t you?”
Despite the cackling, it wasn’t a joke to prompt Cooper to move on. No, it was just the starting point for the tale of a conspiracy that has only grown over the years and added players like the Koch brothers.
Q: Do you believe there's still a vast right-wing conspiracy?
Clinton had this one locked and loaded: "Don't you?!"

Anderson: do you still believe there's a vast right wing conspiracy? HRC: don't you? It's gotten a lot better funded

Lol, the "vast right wing conspiracy." Both sides are an infighting mess pretending to know what they're doing. #DemTownHall

Will be very interesting to see how Republicans respond to Hillary Clinton’s remarks about the "vast right wing conspiracy"

Hillary Clinton gets more animated talking about the "vast right-wing conspiracy" than she has on any other policy question all night.
