Unsurprising:

President Trump on Saturday retweeted a post promoting a conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein’s death.

The tweet, by Twitter user Terrence K. Williams, blamed the death on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton and does not provide evidence.

The tweet included the hashtags #ClintonBodyCount and #ClintonCrimeFamily, as well as a photo of both the former president and former secretary of State. Conspiracy theories linking the death to both the Clinton and Trump himself trended Saturday on Twitter.

This is not the first time Trump has engaged in promoting unfounded conspiracy theories. Consider birtherism, vaccines and autism, Ted Cruz’s father/Lee Harvey Oswald/JFK, to name a few. [Ed. Trump changed his stance on vaccines when faced with the measles outbreak.]

  1. For some strange reason I’m not bothered by this one, at all, unlike his Ted Cruz’s father one, and the vaccine issue.

    I suspect my reason for not caring one whit anymore (I used to though) when Trump does something obnoxious is that the Democrats are doing vastly worse, every dang day, ranging from racisim (against Jews, against straight white males, etc) to calling Trump a racist no matter what he does or does not do.

    I’ll worry about minor annoyances like this once the real problems are fixed, and not until. Otherwise, it’s a heck of a lot like worrying about your dripping bathroom tap while the house is burning down. Sure, it may be a problem, but it’s sure not the one you ought to be worrying about. :)
