Trevor Noah stuns Hillary Clinton, asks her how she 'managed to kill' Jeffrey Epstein: 'You seem to be behind everything nefarious'
In a chat with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton on 'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah', the comedian asked the former presidential candidate why she continues to be 'the bogeyman of the right'
There is no dearth of conspiracies surrounding the death of one of the country's wealthiest, powerful and notorious sex offenders.
In a chat with Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, 'The Daily Show' host Trevor Noah asked the former presidential candidate how she managed to kill pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in his Manhattan jail cell.
The mother-daughter duo were in New York and appeared on the show on Thursday, October 31, to promote their new joint project 'The Book of Gutsy Women'.
"I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?" the comedian asked.
The query sent Hillary and Chelsea laughing.
He asked the former secretary of state how she continues to be "the bogeyman of the right" facing baseless accusations of murder by conspiracy theorists despite leaving the public office years ago and even losing a presidential bid to Donald Trump.
"Because you're not in power, but you have all the power. 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," Noah he said.
To this, the 72-ear-old Democrat said that it comes to her as a "constant surprise" to learn that many people actually believe her to be behind high-profile deaths.
"Well, it's a constant surprise to me," she said. "Because the things they say—and now, of course, it's on steroids with being online—are so ridiculous, beyond any imagination that I could have. And yet they are so persistent in putting forth these crazy ideas and theories. Honestly, I don't know what I ever did to get them so upset."
Following the death of Jeffrey Epstein under suspicious circumstances at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Centre, conspiracy theorists on the Internet began theorizing the Clintons' involvement in the death and #ClintonBodyCount started trending.
Leading forensic pathologic Dr Michael Baden, who was hired by the convicted sex offender's brother, sowed the seeds of speculation earlier this week when he said on 'Fox & Friends' that the autopsy results were more consistent with homicide than suicide.
"Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation," the 85-year-old forensic pioneer had said, noting two fractures on the left and right sides of Epstein's larynx and one of the left hyoid bone above his Adam's apple.
However, Barbara Sampson, New York City chief medical examiner stands "firmly behind her conclusion" that Epstein's death was anything but suicide.
