Epstein’s swanky Manhattan digs reportedly featured bizarre picture of Bill Clinton in a blue dress

Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan mansion featured some odd home decor including an unexpected painting of former President Bill Clinton in a dress and heels.

Law enforcement sources apparently came across the oil painting in the late alleged sex trafficker’s townhouse in New York City, according to the New York Post.

“It was hanging up there prominently — as soon as you walked in — in a room to the right,” a source told the newspaper. “Everybody who saw it laughed and smirked.”

The image is one of Clinton in the Oval Office, legs draped over a chair flashing red heels and wearing a blue dress reminiscent of the one infamously worn by former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky or by his wife Hillary.

The painting was among other strange decor at the $56 million Upper East Side townhouse belonging to the convicted sex offender who reportedly died by suicide last week while awaiting a trial on sex trafficking charges. A mannequin in a wedding dress was reportedly spotted suspended from the ceiling over a staircase, a source told The Post.

A woman who claims she met with Epstein at his New York home back in 2012 told the Daily Mail that she had a photo of the Clinton painting from that visit.

Though Lewinsky had not yet responded, Juanita Broaddrick – who has alleged that Clinton raped her in 1978 – offered some Twitter commentary, referring to the journalist who claims Donald Trump assaulted her decades ago in a department store dressing room.

The Clinton oil painting, called “Parsing Bill” is apparently the work of New York-based artist, Petrina Ryan-Kleid.

“Attempts to reach Ryan-Kleid were unsuccessful on Wednesday night. A relative, when reached by telephone, said he knew of the painting’s existence but was unaware of a connection to Epstein,” the New York Post reported.

“I thought, ‘Why in the world would Epstein have that up?’ I didn’t even know that they knew each other,” the woman who saw the painting in Epstein’s home told the Daily Mail. “It was through a door that had been left temporarily open by his housekeeper or butler.”

Clinton’s friendship with the disgraced billionaire was at the forefront of multiple conspiracy theories that surfaced immediately after his death, as questions arose about whether he had actually taken his own life and how prison personnel failed at their jobs.

Meanwhile, an autopsy on the 66-year-old financier has fueled even more questions.

With the FBI’s raid on Epstein’s private island this week as well, the peculiar decorating tastes of the convicted pedophile made for many more Twitter reactions.
