Many people are saying that cartoon character Pepe the Frog helped rig the 2016 US presidential election for Donald Trump. But new evidence revealed today suggests the amphibian, a favourite of the so-called “alt-right”, was in fact a paid actor.

Before I go on, I should point out that I also believe that the moon landing was a hoax, Marilyn Monroe, who is very much still alive, shot JFK and those Alvin and the Chipmunks movies are real. What I'm saying is that the chipmunks are not CGI. They are real singing chipmunks indentured by the Hollywood studio system. Think about it.

Where were we? Oh, right. Turns out Pepe, created by artist Matt Furie in 2005, was actually a secret Muslim born in Kenya and reached the United States in 2015, with help from the Clinton Foundation.

BUT!

But the internet frog’s fast-rising profile distracted from any further investigation. He was endorsed by a Canadian child calling herself "The Pope", claimed to be able to bench press 300kgs and follow the plot of the Mission Impossible movies.

So it's it's almost TOO obvious that he was employed by Hillary Clinton to engineer her own loss and boost sales of her 2017 book What Happened. Case closed.

Sound crazy? 

Of course it is.

And it's the kind of thing that helped swing the 2016 US presidential election can be seen in Cyberwar, Thursdays at 8:30pm on SBS VICELAND.
