Since the day that he (allegedly) killed himself, Jeffrey Epstein has been the subject of a plethora of conspiracy theories.
Who killed him? Trump? The Clintons? Rich white guys in New York with too much money and a serious lack of morals? The conspiracy theories are endless. But the general consensus among skeptics is that he sure didn’t kill himself.
Now, a quick disclaimer so I don’t get sued or murdered, I’m not alleging that anyone killed Jeffrey Epstein. The official verdict was ruled a suicide.
But that verdict didn’t stop The Daily Show host Trevor Noah from blatantly asking former First Lady, Secretary of State, Senator and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton how she killed Epstein.
“I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?”

To quickly recap a really complex situation in one sentence: convicted sex trafficker and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was fo und dead in his New York jail cell by an apparent suicide on August 10, 2019.
The Epstein can of worms was reopened this week after pathologist Dr. Michael Baden concluded that the autopsy results were more consistent with homicide, despite chief medical examiner Barbara Sampson standing by her conclusion of suicide.
In an interview on Thursday night, Hillary appeared alongside her daughter Chelsea to promote their new book The Book of Gutsy Women.
But obviously, Noah was going to take the rare interview opportunity as an excuse to ask the questions every Epstein conspiracy theorist is dying to know.
Obviously, Hillary and Chelsea laughed off the remark, but Noah didn’t stop there.
“Because you’re not in power but you have all the power,” Noah elaborated. “I really need to understand how you do what you do, because you seem to be behind everything nefarious, and yet you do not use it to become president.”
The Clintons have been involved in their fair share of controversy and scandal over the years, but I’m not sure that’s grounds to assume that Hillary single-handedly pulled off the elaborate murder scheme in question.
However, there are many people out there who firmly believe her and husband Bill organised the murder.
The conspiracy has grown so large that the #ClintonBodyCount hashtag has trended on Twitter, claiming Bill and Hillary have been involved in a string of murders in the past.
Throughout the interview, Noah also asked Hillary about her political career and the intense amount of hate she gets on a daily basis.
“Honestly, what does it feel like being the boogeyman to the right?” He asked.
To which, Hillary replied: “Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did to get them too upset.”
Hillary has been through her fair share of shit, likely because she’s married to certified Not Very Good Guy Bill Clinton. But does that mean she’s capable of murder? Not really.
We’ll likely never have answers to what happened to Jeffrey Epstein on August 10, 2019. Why he was left alone in his cell, why he was taken off suicide watch, or who allegedly killed him, but there is precisely zero evidence to support the theory that Hillary Clinton killed him.
If any evidence about an Epstein murder plot comes out, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
