    Following Hillary Clinton’s near-collapse at the 9/11 memorial, the internet was flooded with jokes about how her campaign would find a way to blame Russia. But nobody actually expected it to happen...

    Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who discovered a pattern of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in dead NFL players, has suggested that the candidate should have blood work done to see whether she’s been poisoned.

    ‘‘I must advice [sic] the Clinton campaign to perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton’s blood. It is possible she is being poisoned,” Omalu tweeted Sunday evening.

    Omalu didn’t stop there. He then asserted that the reason for his worry is that he does not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin or Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    ‘‘I do not trust Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump. With those two all things are possible,” Omalu tweeted in a follow-up.

    Nigerian-born Omalu rose to fame after becoming obsessed with the deaths of former Pittsburgh Steelers players while working in the coroner's office of the city. He proved that players had been suffering from brain damage due to blows to the head, likely obtained while playing.

    Notably, his fringe musings on a poison plot by the Republican nominee or the Russian president made headlines in several publications that previously wrote off left-of-center concerns about Clinton’s health as “conspiracy theories.”
