Is Trump's Mysterious Speech Writer Meredith McIver a Figment of His Own Imagination?

Meredith McIver is the speech writer who took responsibility for Melania Trump's plagiarism (you may have heard about it?). But people aren't convinced that Meredith is even real, leading to the internet's new favorite conspiracy theory. Is Meredith McIver a fake persona created by Trump? Let's examine the evidence.

And if you'd like some appetizer Trump memes before you get started, now would be the time.

So about that plagiarized speech that Melania Trump may have given

In case you missed Thursday night's VP debate, here's the best -- and sassiest -- recap.

Meanwhile, the latest GOP campaign spot sticks it to ol' Joe:

Vice President Biden is laughing... are you? At the 2012 Vice Presidential debate, Vice President Biden spent 90 minutes laughing and rolling his eyes to try and distract from his inability to defend the last four years and provide a vision for the next four.

What say you -- was the veep's laughter as inappropriate as the RNC claims?

So it's come to this -- remember the chair from Clint Eastwood's horrific RNC speech?

Bud Johnson, a dirty old man in Austin, TX, has strung up a chair in his front yard for lynching.

When a neighbor protested Johnson's anti-Obama display, he allegedly yelled: "I don't really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not… You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don't give a sh*t. If you don't like it, don't come down my street."

Meanwhile, several states away in Centreville, VA, a chair labeled "Nobama" has been spotted dangling from a tree.

Too far?

A Reagan hologram will make its big debut on the national stage sooner or later, but the Gipper's planned "appearance" at the RNC was scratched for fear it would upstage Clint Eastwood Mittens.

Probably a smart move.

Poor lil Mittens -- his six-years-in-the-making speech was upstaged by Clint Eastwood's chat with a chair.

The best Internet reactions include:

If you were among those watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in lieu of RNC coverage -- as most of America was -- Eastwood's bizarre speech can be seen here.

Hard to say: Is it Clint Eastwood's awkward -- but hilarious -- discussion with an empty chair, or is it attempting to ignore Invisible Obama through the duration of his speech?

Paul Ryan's Wednesday night speech was a much-needed shot of adrenaline for an otherwise sleepy GOP convention, despite the fact that his remarks were chock-full of "brazen lies."

But for Fox News to acknowledge Ryan's inaccuracies -- wow.

Sally Kohn's piece, "Paul Ryan's speech in 3 words," calls the candidate's remarks "dazzling," but also "deceiving," and "distracting":

To anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan's speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.

Oh, Mittens -- don't you know that flying a Cayman Islands flag on a party yacht for $1 million donors is a little obvious?
