Bridgeport, Connecticut Circus scientists commented today on the recent increase of clowns in the nation.
"We began to study this long before it was an epidemic, and now that it's reaching pandemic proportions, we are doubling our efforts. We need to find a cure and eventually a clown vaccine" spoke a circus scientist.
"The whole process began to break down when Trump gave his speech about Mexican rapists and building a wall that the Mexicans would have to pay for. Everyone thought it was funny, clownish even! But it struck a level of people that really like clowns and they began to multiply."
"As Trump's platform was revealed to be not a joke and truly evil, it was too late, many of the clowns were sucked in and became evil."
"These confused evil clowns can be seen staggering around at night, in full clown regalia. Most of them are harmless, but not all of them. Please do not approach the clowns, take extreme caution, and above all, do not ask them to make you any balloon animals!"
