I wonder if Raven-Symone Pearman of The View is onto something? Here is her latest theory about the Kathryn Steinle murder, courtesy of the skeptical folks at the link below:
Raven-Symoné Pearman of ABC’s “The View” showed her conspiratorial side when she told her co-hosts that the murder of Kate Steinle, 32, by an illegal alien in San Francisco might have been connected to, if not orchestrated by, Trump’s campaign.
According to The Wrap, the newest co-host of ABC’s daytime talk show started explaining her theory by weighing in on why she thinks Trump is running for president. Apparently it’s all a vast conspiracy to keep the public focused on drama.
“Nobody is talking about the real issues because [Trump] is sucking up the air for everyone. He knows how to manipulate the industry,” Raven-Symoné said, “and I’m that person who thinks that he was put there by maybe Republicans or Democrats as a mole to just get people’s opinions and stir stuff up so that we don’t talk about the real issues.”
Pearman says “they” have a secret plan to plant a braggadocio billionaire into the GOP primary. Of course, no one, including Pearman, seems to know who “they” are.
But then things got even weirder — and more ridiculous — when she theorized about how Steinle’s murder played into the conversation about immigration.
Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who allegedly found a federal agent’s gun and fatally shot Steinle, is apparently part of the secretive plot to keep Trump in the spotlight, according to Pearman.
“During the passionate back-and-forth, Raven-Symoné declared that she found it “interesting that this happened as soon as Trump started to talk about this; he randomly found a gun from a federal agent.”
Is she suggesting that “they” also planted the gun?
Scoff at your own peril! Remember Donald Trump is a multi-billionaire. He can buy anything he wants. (Think, “You want a toe? I can get you a toe!) And, the alleged killer did not have a record of criminal violence, and all witnesses agree that he did not exchange any words with Steinle, or have any contact at all with her. That, in itself, is pretty strange. So are the circumstances of the murder. According to the Daily Mail:
The man accused of killing a woman at a popular San Francisco pier said the gun went off by accident after he found it wrapped in a T-shirt and picked it up.Francisco Sanchez said he was walking on Pier 14 after taking sleeping pills he found in a dumpster. He claimed to have found the T-shirt and picked it up, only for the gun inside it to go off three times, fatally injuring Kathryn Steinle, who was known as Kate.
So while I don’t buy into her theory, I would not be too quick to dismiss it out of hand. Stranger things have occurred! You decide! But in the meantime, “Can you prove it didn’t happen?”

Penelope insisted I add these footnotes.
FootNote 1: The picture above is of Maila Nurmi, aka Vampira.
The original glamour ghoul herself, “Vampira”, of late night 1950s television, was actually born Maila Syrjäniemi (later changed to the easier surname Nurmi) on December 11, 1922 in Petsamo, Finland. Her uncle was the multiple Olympic medal runner Paavo Nurmi. Maila arrived in the United States with her family as a baby and lived a rather nomadic existence at first as her father was a writer who lectured on temperance.

FootNote 2: The toe quote above is from Walter Sobchak, in the 1998 film, The Big Lebowski. The entire quote is:
Walter Sobchak: You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don’t wanna know about it, believe me.
The Dude: Yeah, but Walter…
Walter Sobchak: Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o’clock this afternoon… with nail polish. These fucking amateurs…
