Trump doubles down on baseless conspiracy theory linking Bill Clinton to Jeffrey Epstein's death

Goddamn this fucking moron.

President Trump said Tuesday that he has “no idea” whether a conspiracy theory he promoted on Twitter claiming that former President Bill Clinton was somehow responsible for disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a New York federal prison is actually true. The president then went on to stoke the very same rumors of foul play.

“I have no idea,” Trump told reporters when asked if he really thought the Clintons were involved in Epstein’s death. “I know he was on his plane 27 times, and he said he was on the plane four times. But when they checked the plane logs, Bill Clinton, who was a very good friend of Epstein, he was on the plane about 27 or 28 times, so why did he say four times? And then the question you have to ask is ‘Did Bill Clinton go to the island?’ because Epstein had an island that was not a good place as I understand it, and I was never there. So you have to ask, ‘Did Bill Clinton go to the island?’ If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot.”

Flight logs released by Gawker in 2015 showed Clinton taking over two dozen flights on Epstein’s private plane, but the Clintons, in a statement released after Epstein’s July arrest on sex trafficking charges, said it was only four trips — not specifying the number of flights. In September 2002, Clinton and Epstein went on a tour of five African countries along with actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker for what Clinton’s aides have said was for “democratization, empowering the poor, citizen service, and combating HIV/AIDS.” The Daily Beast reported in July that Epstein visited Clinton’s White House multiple times during his tenure.

Trump also had close ties to Epstein, whose Palm Beach mansion was not far from the president’s private club, Mar-a-Lago. MSNBC recently aired video, from 1992, of Trump and Epstein partying together at the president’s Florida estate and commenting on the appearance of several female guests.

1. Obviously Hillary used her mad ninja skillz to scale the prison wall and rappel in.

She did it wearing a black onesie and balaclava with a thermos of steaming hot tea laced with sleeping potion strapped to her back. She poured out two cups of tea and clung to the ceiling like Spiderman, waiting for the irresistible aroma of the tea to lure the guards into finding it, drinking it, and falling asleep. Then she broke into Epstein's cell, dispatched him and left the prison the same way she came in. All very impressive for a 71 year old woman the right wing claimed was on the very brink of death in 2016.

3. It's just mind-boggling.

a Democratic President would have been in a straight jacket two years ago if he/she acted this way
