McIver, who apparently helped Trump write some of his books, released a statement accepting responsibility and taking the fall for the incident. The only problem: people are speculating she’s not real at all.
Is she a real person? Probably. But Trump has made up people before (twice, at least!) and given how the campaign has gone over the last year, no one would be surprised if Trump did make up a fake speechwriter to take the blame.
Put on the tin foil hats and get ready, sheeple.
So sayeth the internet:
Serious question: has any news outlet seen or interviewed Meredith McIver? Asking because of the GOP candidate’s history of using aliases.

News outlets are citing Meredith McIver’s Speakerpedia page as proof she exists. I’m going to need to see her long form birth certificate.

“Meredith McIver” is an anagram for “Deceit River…Hmm.” Hmm…
