These days it seems as though every second there’s a new piece of news being published — a new thread of rumors or speculation waiting to light fires. The White House has become what some may call a “Real Housewives of Washington,” due to its constant drama. One day it’s President Trump demanding two scoops of ice cream, and the next it’s Melania wearing heals to a hurricane disaster area. Whatever it is, the media sometimes seems to react like a petty and insecure high-schooler. Speaking of which, the latest and greatest drama is regarding Kellyanne Conway and Donald Trump Jr. declining further Secret Service Protection. It’s acted as additional fuel for people to find anger and entertainment in political dramas, as many conspiracies have risen from among the public.

One of the most popular conspiracy theories is that Kellyanne and Donald Jr. are refusing Secret Services because they are having an affair. People who believe this are trying to take it back to the good ol’ days of politicians cheating on their wives. I’m not saying this scandal is merely a thing of the past, but it seems far-fetched in this case. Kellyanne Conway is no Marilyn Monroe, and Donald Jr. certainly is no John F. Kennedy. But nonetheless, this conspiracy seems to be one that won’t rest with the public. The image of Kellyanne and Donald Jr. sneaking off to a hotel room seems unlikely and repulsive. The image of them meeting for lunch and discussing ways to gaslight the public seems more likely.

Another theory is that the two of them are paranoid about something. These theorists are assuming that Conway and Trump Jr. are tiptoeing with threatening baggage that’s catching up to them, and are soon to be caught, especially with so many looking over their shoulders. This is also the one that took over Twitter. People are saying that they must be hiding something that is so extreme they can’t have anyone following them at all times.

The wildest one is that they need more privacy and time to burn evidence. Evidence of what? Killing someone? Undisclosed evidence of alien life? Yeah, possibly. Unlawful emails? Well, that’s ironic, seeing as emails are a large part of the reason why Hillary Clinton didn’t win the presidential election.

Personally, I think these conspiracies are all ridiculous. They wouldn’t go public with this information, as they have done, if they were actually hiding something. As I always say, let the theorists conspire, because they are only providing entertaining perspectives on news of this sort. It isn’t entertainment with much substance, but it’s entertainment nonetheless. And regardless of your take on alien existence, I wouldn’t take these theories to heart.
