Hillary Clinton was jokingly asked by “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah how she managed to kill pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a Manhattan jail cell.
“I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?” Noah asked, drawing laughter from Clinton, 71, and the New York studio audience on Thursday.
“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,” he continued.
“Honestly, what does it feel like being the boogeyman to the right?” the host asked the former presidential candidate and ex-secretary of state.
“Well, it’s a constant surprise to me,” responded a chuckling Clinton, who was appearing alongside her daughter, Chelsea, 39, to promote their new joint project, “The Book of Gutsy Women.”
“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,” she said.
“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.”
Questions have been raised after Epstein was suspiciously found dead in his cell at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.
Among the popular theories is that Epstein had been murdered at the behest of the Clintons — as the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount trended.
A state medical examiner concluded that Epstein committed suicide by hanging on Aug. 10.
However, famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother to investigate the death, rekindled speculation when he said on “Fox & Friends” this week that the autopsy results were more consistent with homicide than suicide.
New York City chief medical examiner Barbara Sampson said she stands “firmly” behind her conclusion that Epstein’s death was a suicide.
