Here come the conspiracy theories AGAIN

During President Donald Trump’s coronavirus briefing Tuesday, a reporter chose to harangue him with a completely unrelated question about the recent arrest of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.

Just to be clear, she was arrested by HIS administration.

The president responded to the line of questioning by dismissing the matter. Why? The possibilities are numerous. Perhaps he didn’t want to involve himself personally in the matter and risk corrupting his administration’s case into her. Or perhaps he had other more pressing matters on his mind — like, say, the coronavirus pandemic.

“I don’t know. I haven’t really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly,” he pithily said of Maxwell’s arrest.

Listen:

Following this simple, brief question-and-answer, the entire left-wing universe blew up with conspiracy theories about how the president was going to pardon Maxwell.

Over at Politico, the left-wing magazine managed to allegedly find a prosecutor within the Trump administration who thinks his boss’s remark “reeks of the president indicating to her that he might reward her if she’ll stay silent about whatever she knows about him.” Of course, the prosecutor was anonymous.

“The president has nothing to say about a gun-toting madman who just murdered the son of a federal judge. But he takes time out of his press conference to send well wishes to a woman accused of trafficking teenager girls for sex,” the prosecutor told POLITICO.

Referring to Trump’s granting clemency to his former adviser Roger Stone, the prosecutor said: “That’s gross on its face, and in the aftermath of the Stone pardon, it reeks of the president indicating to her that he might reward her if she’ll stay silent about whatever she knows about him.”

The unfounded, ridiculous rumor quickly spread to blue checkmark Twitter accounts, with mainstream figures on the left eagerly embracing it as a legitimate possibility.

Look (*Language warning):

Remember, these are the same types of far-left people who’ve spent years snootily calling conservatives “right-wing nut jobs” and “deplorables,” even as they themselves have clung to some of the most bizarre conspiracy theories in American history.

For instance, many of the figures above (if not all) were (and still may be) supporters of the Russian collusion delusion hoax and conspiracy theory.

As for Maxwell, there is another possibility that might explain the president’s well wishes. The fact is that after Epstein’s arrest, he suddenly died — allegedly from suicide, though some have speculated that he was murdered.

Either way, some believe it’s possible the president had simply been saying — surreptitiously, mind you — that he hopes Maxwell also doesn’t wind up dead.

This theory actually makes sense, for if Maxwell winds up dead, it’ll rob her and Epstein’s alleged victims of the justice they desperately seek.

Like one of their former victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, said last week to CBS News, “It would have been great to look at him in court and say you hurt me, you took away my innocence, you took away my youth, but she took that away from us too. I’m really hoping we get to do this with Ghislaine.”

So is the president, it would appear.
