It was discovered on Saturday that child rapist Jeffrey Epstein had committed suicide for reasons unknown. Shortly after, one of Donald Trump’s appointees was busted using her personal Instagram account to put the blame of Epstein’s death on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
HUD official Lynne Patton posted a message with a screenshot of an Epstein report on Instagram shortly after the discovery of Epstein’s death, then wrote: “Hillary’d!! 😳 P.S. Let me know when I’m supposed to feel badly about this… #VinceFosterPartTwo.”
Patton has previously been under scrutiny over her appointment to HUD having been a wedding planner in her previous career.
What will actually happen is Dems will act responsibly, and Republicans (like Trump-party-planner-turned-HUD-regional-director Lynne Patton) will fan a Clinton conspiracy theory, and that's how the fact that Trump used to pal around with Epstein becomes a non-fact on the right. pic.twitter.com/3FFpzMul6t
