With a pair of weekend retweets, President Donald Trump amplified an unfounded conspiracy theory. It was hardly the first time.
His political career began the same way. Trump has a long history of spreading falsehoods drawn from the conservative fringe. His unlikely rise to the White House was fueled in part by spreading the lie that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., and he has trafficked in numerous others to malign his opponents and advance his own views.
Now he has used the power of the presidency to promote a baseless claim about the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, breaking another norm of the office and further sowing public confusion over the apparent suicide of one of the most high-profile inmates in the federal system. Epstein, who faced up to 45 years in prison on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, was found dead in his cell in a Manhattan jail early Saturday.
Here he is doing it
He raises a question : " Did Bill Clinton go to the island ? If you can answer that you'll know a lot more . "
Trump also says " what I know is that he travelled on his plane at least 27 times , he said four , but he's been that plane 27 times . "
Personal op-ed ,
Well we're right into conspiracy theories , especially ones that are baseless , have no relation to fact or evidence , that are wild speculation where you just pull names and faces from thin air and accuse them of all kinds of far fetched ideas you made up and then invent every type of reason to say it's so , so we can out anyone who denies as a shill and part of the coverup especially creating loads of paranoia and irrational behaviours on the back of it . The ones with absolutely no truth or circumstantial analysis or anything related to critical thinking and devoid of all reality checks are the greatest , that are an absolute waste of time talking about , love them . And we're so glad that Trump is president nowadays .
Reading the replies in this thread, every single leftist and those that hold water for them are trying REALLY HARD, while ignoring the actual evidence of people and their ties to Epstien.

Trump's trying to shift the focus away from his own relationship with Epstein hence he pushes a conspiracy theory.
You say he's shifting focus.
We say he's shining a light on the problem.
He's the president.
The fact this investigation took place under his administration says just about everything you need to know. If he could suffer any blowback it would have never seen the light of day. Just like the previous administrations burried it. But here we are....
People trying their damnedest to link Trump to this. Meanwhile his AG is performing 3 investigations and one independent investigation into the matter. Yeah sure sounds like Trump is worried...

Why do people work so feverishly to defend scumlords like Donald Trump and Bill Clinton?
Because "Yay Team!"?
Got a bit of reality for ya, they are the ones that are actually on the same team and working feverishly against you.
These people do nothing but play you for fools for their own benefit. They are using you. Stop gobbling up their bait.
