The Internet thinks Hillary Clinton has a body double

Among speculation that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's health is failing, there's another theory gaining traction online: she might have a body double.

The only "evidence" of this theory is photographs taken Sept. 11, when Clinton ducked out of a 9/11 anniversary ceremony in New York because she felt "overheated" and is battling pneumonia.

Some say the differences lie in the details: cheekbones, smooth versus wrinkled skin and body composition.

Many said it was strange Clinton wasn't surrounded by security for part of the day Sept. 11. She took her time walking along a sidewalk, telling spectators she was feeling "great" and stopped to pose for a photo with a young girl.

Famous Clinton impersonator Teresa Barnwell first played along, tweeting she might have been in New York that day. She was actually on the West Coast, preparing for a Spike TV network show. She had been in New York just a few weeks ago and a friend took her past Chelsea Clinton's building, where they took photos.

"As I was sitting in my dressing room, I posted [a photo] to have a little fun," Barnwell said, adding that she had never shared the New York photo previously. "I had already posted that I was in L.A. before that, so I was just joking with people."

Barnwell later said she was in Los Angeles during the time of the photos, telling people to “calm down.”
