In keeping with an election that was rife with rumor and innuendo, a strange new conspiracy theory claims that Donald Trump was really born in Pakistan!
Although the claims may sound like satirically-tinged sour grapes from disappointed Democrats, the weird story was actually reported on Pakistani television.
In the news report, it is alleged that the President-elect was born in Pakistan under the name 'Dawood Ibrahim Khan' back in 1946.
Following a tragic accident which saw Khan's parents killed, so the story goes, a kindly British couple saved the nine-year-old future leader of the free world and, in turn, handed him over to the Trump family in America for adoption.
The rest, as they say, is history ... or alternative history, in this case.
Of course, the wild conspiracy theory is wholly untrue as there is a wealth of evidence surrounding Trump's birth and upbringing here in America.
Additionally, the purported photograph of a toddler Trump in Pakistan has already been debunked as having been taken in 2012.
With that in mind, perhaps the most perplexing aspect of the story may be how or why a major media outlet in Pakistan reported such a clearly false tale.
Then again, given the miscues we've seen from the media over the past year, perhaps its not so surprising to see the same from Pakistani TV as well.
