John at Crooks and Liars predicted it, and it took only minutes to happen.

Newsmax TV broadcaster Steve Malzberg floated the idea Thursday that the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate has somehow timed her daughter’s pregnancy to benefit her political ambitions.

“Chelsea Clinton is having a baby, she announced it (Thursday), and lo and behold, Hillary was by her side,” Malzberg said. “Hillary is going to be a grandmother and an expected grandmother while she runs for president.”

The former talk radio broadcaster recognized his claim would likely draw some attention from media watchdogs, who might point out that he has no basis to claim the former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State had staged her daughter’s pregnancy.

“When I say staged, I have to be believed she’s pregnant if she says she’s pregnant,” Malzberg said. “I don’t mean that they’re making up she’s pregnant, OK? But what great timing! I mean, purely accidental, purely an act of nature, purely just left up to God, and God answered Hillary Clinton’s prayers, and she’s going to have the prop of being a new grandma while she runs for president.”
