Remember Peter Thiel? PayPal co-founder, Facebook board member, Gawker nemesis, and the first openly gay person to speak at a Republican convention?

Well, rumors are circulating that if Donald Trump wins the presidency, Thiel will get a Supreme Court nomination.

These rumors come from anonymous sources "close to the PayPal co-founder" claiming that Thiel has told friends that Trump offered him a nomination.

Except Thiel says he didn't. And Trump says he didn't.

Thiel does support Trump, though.

So, thoughts? What's going on here?
