The Donald Trump “Vince Foster” Conspiracy Moment Is Upon Us at Last
Anyone who pays attention to Donald Trump’s affinity for far right conspiracy theories knew this moment was coming sooner or later; and now it’s here, as Trump brings up one of the most insane right wing smears on the Clintons: that they orchestrated the murder of former White House aide Vincent Foster.
When asked in an interview last week about the Foster case, Trump dealt with it as he has with many edgy topics — raising doubts about the official version of events even as he says he does not plan to talk about it on the campaign trail.
He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”
“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said, speaking of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons at the time. “He knew everything that was going on and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.”
He added, “I don’t bring [Foster] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”
He’s not bringing Foster up, says Trump, as he brings Foster up. He’s pandering to the utterly degraded right wing base, of course, the paranoid people who made him the GOP nominee.
