Elon Musk set the Internet of fire on Sunday when he tweeted: “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya”.
Some wondered what Musk might have on Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Others said the Tesla CEO who recently bought Twitter may have been referencing a potential threat from Russia.
Some observers said Musk may be keeping an eye out for Bill and Hillary, playing off of the theory that the Clintons were involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide. Several individuals with ties to the Clintons have reportedly died under mysterious circumstances.
A phenomenon known as the “Clinton Dead Pool” has served as a reminder to all of the consequences of crossing the notorious power couple. There are many names on the list depending on who is counting.
“Do you have dirt on the Clintons?” digital strategist Greg Price asked.
“Wait… what do you know about Hillary Clinton?” comedian Tim Young asked.
“The Clintons” began trending on Twitter in large part due to Musk’s tweet.
Others referenced a tweet from John McAfee on Oct. 15, 2020, in which the computer programmer and anti-virus software producer stated that he had no intentions of committing suicide after he was arrested in Spain on tax evasion charges.
“I am content in here. I have friends. The food is good. All is well. Know that if I hang myself, a la Epstein, it will be no fault of mine,” McAfee tweeted.
McAfee was found dead on June 23, 2021, of apparent suicide by hanging in his cell shortly after the Spanish National Court authorized his extradition to the U.S.
As for the Russia theory, shortly before his May 8 tweet, Musk cited a message from Dmitry Rogozin, a former deputy prime minister of Russia, who sent a statement to Russian media condemning Musk’s Starlink satellite company for enabling the “Nazi Azov Battalion” in Ukraine to access the Internet.
The #ClintonBodyCount hashtag began to trend soon after Jeffrey Epstein reportedly committed suicide in his New York City jail cell on Aug. 10, 2019.
Lynne Patton, an official in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, tweeted after Epstein’s death: “Hillary’d!! P.S. Let me know when I’m supposed to feel badly about this…#VinceFosterPartTwo”
Legal Insurrection noted that “The loons of Trump-Russia Collusion blamed the initial #ClintonBodyCount surge on Russian bots.”
Author Jeffrey Abramson tweeted: “Understand that the reason Russian bots are all over the Internet making wild claims about a Clinton connection to the Epstein suicide is because key people in the United States and abroad know the *Trump* connection to Epstein is the one that matters, and is the real story here.”
In the mid-1990s, an email message was circulated which detailed various Bill and Hillary Clinton associates alleged to have died under mysterious circumstances. This theory was resurrected during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 and 2016 failed presidential bids.
