Epstein’s suicide, aside from being one of the biggest stories of the year, may also be the first big party-unifying event of the year, since nobody’s buying it!
The circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death were just too convenient.
Supposedly, Epstein was not on suicide watch as we thought he was at the time of his death, and he “killed himself” just hours after court documents implicating big names (including Bill Clinton) were unsealed.
So yeah, no one believes the official story.
Not even AOC.
Yesterday after the big news broke out, President Trump retweeted a tweet from comedian Terrance K. Williams speculating that the Clintons might be in some way connecting to Epstein's death, as #ClintonBodyCount trended on Twitter.
Here's the tweet Trump shared on his own page:
Of course, mainstream media has been quick to slam the speculation that the Clintons may have been involved in Epstein's death as a "conspiracy theory."
Patriots also pointed out how media is choosing to frame Trump's retweet on Twitter:
NBC News said the following about Trump's retweet:
President Donald Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory Saturday evening alleging without evidence that former President Bill Clinton was connected to the death of wealthy financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, hours after Epstein was found dead by apparent suicide in his federal prison cell.
"Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen," Terrence K. Williams, a conservative commentator and comedian, wrote in the message retweeted by Trump. In a two-minute-long selfie video recording, Williams alleged that the Clintons were responsible for Epstein's death.
Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death, multiple people familiar with the investigation have told NBC News.
The stoking of conspiracy theories about his political rivals is nothing new for the president: he made a political name for himself championing false claims that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States, and also suggested that Clinton White House aide Vince Foster’s suicide in 1993 was “very fishy.” But the tweets also notably cast suspicions on his own Justice Department.
In the video, Williams alleged that for Epstein to die by suicide, "somebody not doing their job, or somebody got paid not to do — not to do their job, so somebody can get knocked off, so information don’t come out.”
Epstein died in a federal prison, and the FBI is investigating the death. Attorney General William Barr said he was "appalled" by the news and called for an internal probe as well.
Some Democrats are furious at Trump for sharing the tweet, but never one to be shy, WH advisor Kellyanne Conway is backing the president!
Watch her defense of Trump here:
The Hill had more to say about this:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended President Trump’s retweet of a conspiracy theory about the death of alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, while Trump’s critics and rivals blasted the retweets as irresponsible conspiracy-mongering.
The Saturday night retweet implied former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton, who appears several times in flight logs for Epstein’s private jet, were responsible for Epstein's death in federal custody, and uses the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount, referencing a conspiracy theory about the Clintons having political opponents murdered that dates back to the early 1990s.
The tweet offered no evidence for its assertions. Clinton’s spokesman Angel Ureña responded to Trump's retweet by writing "Ridiculous, and of course not true — and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?"
Conway minimized the retweet in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” saying “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated” and noted Epstein’s ties to figures like the former president and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D).
