FOX ‘News’ Openly Embraces Trump’s Disgusting Lie that the Clintons Murdered Jeffrey Epstein

On Saturday the United States of America entered a new era of political shame and disgrace. Donald Trump, whose embarrassing behavior has humiliated the nation from the day he was inaugurated, dived into an ever deeper abyss of debasement. He lowered himself to depths never before imagined for a U.S. president by blasting out to his 62 million Twitter followers a reckless accusation, with zero evidence, that a former president, and political foe, was guilty of murder.

Trump’s unconscionably grotesque charge that Bill and/or Hillary Clinton had somehow managed to kill pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in his prison cell is not only slanderous and unethical, it makes no sense whatsoever. After all, if anyone had the motive and opportunity to off Epstein it was his former pal, Donald Trump. The Clintons have been out of power for years, but Trump’s presidency, and freedom would be on the line if Epstein talked.

That said, this wouldn’t be a good time to be casting aspersions on anyone without some documentation or testimony, even though that’s precisely what Trump has already done. And to make matters worse, his State TV affiliate, Fox News, has now joined Trump in spewing the very same ridiculous accusations. Jeanine Pirro, a Fox host and unabashed Trump-fluffer, brought up the subject on her primetime Saturday night program. And she made sure that her allegations were as explicit as they were unfounded (video below):

“We already know that Jeffrey Epstein had very high profile people like Bill Clinton flying on his “Lolita Express” airplane to his private island. Other people mentioned, there’s Prince Andrew, Sen. George Mitchell, Bill Richardson. A lot of people mentioned. So this is a guy who, to a lot of people I guess, would have been better off dead. So a federal criminal investigation might be looking at that aspect of it, might it not?”

Pirro asked this question of her guest, former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik. It should also be noted that Kerik is a felon who served time in prison for tax fraud and perjury committed while employed by Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani. Kerik affirmed Pirro’s implied charges by speculating about the motives of whoever took Epstein off of suicide watch.

To be sure, there are unanswered questions regarding how a prisoner who authorities already claimed had attempted suicide was able to hang himself in his cell. But by wrapping these questions in ludicrous and baseless conjecture about the Clintons, Fox News is sinking to new lows. Of course, they have never been a credible news enterprise, having been founded by a foreign, right-wing media mogul (Rupert Murdoch) and a Republican campaign consultant (Roger Ailes). But they are now crossing the line from a disreputable conservative propaganda outlet to a crackpot conspiracy theory dispensary that is willing to abandon reality – and sanity – in order to suck up to the lying, loathsome, abomination occupying the White House.

The names that Pirro rattled off were predictably partisan. And it was surely not an oversight that she deliberately left out Trump’s name, although it has been documented to have appeared on the passenger list for Epstein’s flights. What’s more, Pirro never even bothered to mention that the two had been friends, and abusers of young women, for years. These days Trump is pretending that he and Epstein had a falling out, but he offers no proof of that. And if anything, it was probably over a girl they both had designs on.

So now Both Trump and Fox News have shamelessly peddled some of the most asinine conspiracy theories ever dredged up from the bowels of the Internet. And they have forever stained what was left of their already tattered reputations. The time when they are removed from the national stage cannot come too soon. And hopefully, the country can heal the wounds they’ve so callously opened. Unfortunately, we’ll still be stuck with the idiot jerkwads who have been lapping up that slime.

What good would it do any American citizen to have the Clinton’s incriminated? Other than serving a hate addiction, Trump’s accusations is for nothing but distraction. Trump would do anything to keep the suckers in the country from learning any truth about him, and that’s all that this BS is about. Trump is nothing but a criminal and he should be ultimately treated as such. Not to mention Bill Bar and the rest of the filthy traitorous neo-cons.

I can’t stop laughing!!!!! No doubt there were people who wanted him dead. If he was killed, it was done by professionals. Only stupid people get caught. Pro’s won’t leave a trace behind. It’s over folks.

FOX, they are just a weird mob, Over here in Australia, he supports the liberals and in America, he supports the republicans, Both parties are totally opposite to each other. personally, I will be glad when he drops off the perch.

Trump, Barr and their merry band of pathological lying farts for brains will say or do anything to keep their followers in la la land. The Clintons had nothing to do with Epstein’s death.

“And if anything, it was probably over a girl they both had designs on.” They probably would have shared.

Fox news needs to be investigated by the FCC. This fake media station is helping the psycho destroy America and if we do nothing we deserve what happens to us. God will not help us unless we help ourselves.

“The Loudest Voice” is a great TV series about Roger Ailes. No doubt interlaced with dramatic irony, it nonetheless gives you a great insight into the formation of Fox, and its motivation and bias, and perhaps why America is where it is today.

…Fox News , seems to have forgotten to mention Epstein’s friend’s ..
…People like ,Dershowitz, Starr , Barr , Trump , all Friends of Epstein. And it’s a safe bet their names , are in that little” black book” of Epstein’s , including many
..“friends of the Foxes “.
.,,Epstein corrupted people of “wealth “across the “political “spectrum. It was “fertile ground “for his (products ). Is it any wonder he’s no longer with us ???
…It’s (business as usual ) “GOD FATHER “ style , for the benefit and protection of them !! .
