Bill Clinton umpires celebrity softball game days after Trump claimed he visited Epstein's 'Pedophile Island'
This comes after a portrait of Clinton wearing a blue dress was found hanging inside Epstein's Manhattan mansion as the FBI raided the property following the disgraced financier's death
Former US president Bill Clinton made an appearance at the 71st East Hampton Artists and Writers Charity Softball Game on Saturday, August 17.
Clinton's presence at the event comes just days after President Donald Trump insinuated that he might have visited the "Pedophile Island" of billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York on August 10.
People gathered at the event were surprised to see the former commander-in-chief smiling as took to the field before first pitch and even served as an umpire for some time during the game.
Clinton's involvement in the softball game event comes after a bizarre portrait of him wearing a blue dress was found hanging inside Epstein's Manhattan mansion as the FBI raided the property following the disgraced financier's death.
The former president, however, is not new to taking part in softball games as he has participated in numerous matches ever since he was the governor of Arkansas 31 years ago.
In the portrait, Clinton can be seen wearing a blue dress with a plunging neckline, red heels, and posing suggestively on a chair in the Oval Office - which many believed could have been a reference to an attire that former White House intern Monica Lewinsky wore during her infamous tryst with the 42nd president.
Meanwhile, Clinton was all smiles as he spoke fondly about his memories of the softball game on Saturday while avoiding to speak about his possible links to Epstein.
The former president's mum assumes significance especially after Trump passed a snide remark when asked on August 13 about what he thought about Clinton's alleged involvement in the billionaire's death.
While he initially told, “I have no idea," but then said “I know he [Bill Clinton] was on his plane 27 times,” adding that Clinton was "a very good friend of Epstein’s," CNBC reported.
Trump was also asked the day before if he thought Clinton visited Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Island, which has infamously been dubbed the "Pedophile Island."
“That was not a good place, as I understand it, and I was never there,” Trump said.
“You have to ask, did Bill Clinton go to the island? That’s the question. If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot.”
All these comments come after Trump on Saturday retweeted one of the conspiracy promoters, Terrence Williams, who had written that Epstein “had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead. I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! ... #EpsteinSuicide #ClintonBodyCount #ClintonCrimeFamily.”
