“Clinton Body Count” was Twitter’s top trending term Saturday as news of Jeffrey Epstein’s death broke and apparently revived an old consiracy theory and led to new suspicions about the number of Clinton associates that have died mysteriously.

“Marked safe from being suicided by the Clintons,” one popular graphic read. Another said, “I don’t know anything about the Clintons–Just putting this out there for my own safety.”
The Inquisitr noted that much of the “Clinton Body Count” traffic was driven by bots Saturday, but it has quickly become a running wry joke in light of dozens of Clinton associates that have died suddenly and unexpectedly, starting with Vince Foster in 1993.
