"I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?" asked Noah to laughter from the New York studio audience. "Because you're not in power, but you have all the power. I really need to understand how you do what you do, because you seem to be behind everything nefarious, and yet you do not use it to become president."




"Honestly, what does it feel like being the boogeyman to the right?” the host asked. 

Clinton responded by saying it was a "constant surprise."

“Well, it’s a constant surprise to me,” she said. “Because the things they say, and now, of course, it’s on steroids with being online, are so ridiculous, beyond any imagination that I could have. And yet they are so persistent in putting forth these crazy ideas and theories. Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did to get them so upset.”

Noah was attempting to knock a right-wing conspiracy theory that Epstein, a convicted sex offender, had been murdered at the behest of the Clintons in a New York jail cell while awaiting trail. A state medical examiner had concluded he had killed himself on Aug. 10.

At one point after his body was found, a number of conspiracy theories centered on the Clintons had briefly trended as Epstein's death dominated the news cycle.


Noah's joke came just one day after forensic pathologist Michael Baden, who had been hired by Epstein's brother to investigate the cause of Epstein's death, told “Fox & Friends” there was “evidence here of homicide” while calling for further investigation.

New York City chief medical examiner Barbara Sampson quickly dismissed Baden's claims, stating she stands “firmly” behind her conclusion that Epstein killed himself.

The Clinton women were on the program to promote their new book, "The Book of Gutsy Women," that was released last month.
