Foster the People doesn’t buy the Jeffrey Epstein “suicide” story, either

A couple of weeks ago when sex trafficker freak and all-round perv Jeffrey Epstein was found in a cell with injuries consistent with a suicide attempt, I said to a friend “He didn’t try to kill himself. Someone powerful tried to have him whacked before he could talk.”

Then his past Saturday (August 9), Epstein was found dead in his cell in a federal jail. It took less than ten seconds for the conspiracy theories to start flying around.

I texted that same friend: “It was Trump working in concert with the Clintons, supervised by the Royal Family, who funded the operation through Deutsche Bank and had everything administered by Alan Dershowitz.”

I was kidding, of course. But everyone agrees that the whole thing stinks. How the f*ck could such a high-level prisoner and source of information be allow to off himself?

Foster the People jumped right in tweeting this.

Yes, there was some pushback, so Mark Foster felt compelled to reply.
