The Onion’s latest parody headline about Hillary Clinton was almost too believable

With an election season full of revelations coming at breakneck speed, The Onion’s latest parody headline about Hillary Clinton was almost too believable.

According to the satirical newspaper, Clinton “told her staff Tuesday to ready the launch of several electromagnetic pulses to disable all of the nation’s electronic devices” so no one would be able to read any more about her emails.

“If there are additional leaks, I’m going to need you to head directly to the command center in the basement of our headquarters, input your security authorization, and turn the EMP launch key,” Clinton told her top advisors, according to the humor magazine. “The go word is ‘trustworthy.’”

Amid all the latest headlines about the Democratic presidential nominee, the Onion’s satire may fool some into thinking it’s real. But after months of jaw-dropping revelations, who can blame anyone for believing what once seemed so far fetched?
