On her radio show host, conservative nutjob Laura Ingraham revealed her latest conspiracy theory: The Ebola workers who appeared with President Obama on Wednesday weren’t volunteers; they were political props.
President Obama addressed the country’s response to the Ebola situation both domestically and abroad. With him were several health care workers who had recently returned from west Africa, including the first patient treated for the virus in the country, Dr. Kent Brantly.
Ingraham criticized the president, and posited the theory that those on stage with him were not volunteers at all.
“[Obama] was flanked by volunteers who have gone to West Africa to help the victims of Ebola. Are we positive that it was all volunteers, Julia? Could it have been some of the folks from Organizing for America just in the white coats?”
