President Trump on Saturday fanned the Twitter flames of a baseless conspiracy theory linking Bill and Hillary Clinton to the suicide of sex fiend financier Jeffrey Epstein.
The president, on his first day of a 10-day vacation at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., retweeted a video rant by comedian and Trump supporter Terrence K. Williams.
“Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right!” Williams tweeted, reporting incorrectly that Epstein was on suicide watch. Epstein’s suicide watch was discontinued in late July.
“How does that happen #JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead,” Williams wrote.
He then said he was not surprised and pointed to the hash tags #EpsteinSuicide, #ClintonBodyCount and #ClintonCrimeFamily.
Former President Clinton’s press secretary responded to Trump’s retweet: “Ridiculous, and of course not true — and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?”
The 25th Amendment provides a way to remove Trump from office if the vice president and other top Washington officials deem him “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
Williams bragged earlier on Saturday of having predicted Epstein’s death
