Today former President Bill Clinton was questioned about his “friendship” with deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein while at a campaign event in Texas.
Clinton was asked about Epstein during an event in Laredo Texas, according to Real America’s Voice journalist Juan Carlos Mendoza Diaz, who asked the question.
“Any comments on the alleged allegations of your connection with Jeffrey Epstein,” asked the journalist.
Clinton, smiling with his face red, replied either “I think the answer is clear” or “I think the evidence is clear,” then quickly turned away from the camera.

While the extent of their friendship is the subject of some mystery, The Daily Beast reported that Epstein visited the Clinton White House at least 17 times during Clinton’s two terms in office.
Epstein and his pimp, Ghislaine Maxwell, were photographed in the White House with Clinton in a 1993 photo that regularly goes viral on social media.
Maxwell is now serving a 20-year prison sentence for conspiring to sexually abuse minors with the dead billionaire, who himself allegedly committed suicide while in custody and awaiting trial.
Today’s event with Rep. Henry Cuellar marks Clinton’s second high profile political event in three days, with his last seeing him speak alongside New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.
In that event, Clinton was accused of making light of New York’s increase in crime, with many conservatives calling the 76-year-old callous and out of touch for being unable to sympathize with the plight of low and middle income New Yorkers.
Lee Zeldin, Hochul’s Republican opponent, lambasted the incident on Twitter.
According to Zeldin, Clinton and Hochul “were laughing and joking about recent subway crimes” and “THis tells you everything you need to know about how little they care about your life and safety.”
Zeldin went on, “The countless victims of rampant crime do not think it’s funny.”
