Student poses as Trump supporter and casually drops Jeffrey Epstein suicide conspiracy theory on live TV

Last weekend, a military dog handler blurted out that the convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, who took his own life earlier this year, hadn't killed himself.

The clip soon went viral but few would have suspected that this one short act of defiance and conspiracy spreading would actually result in a new trend.

On Saturday, the American news network MSNBC was interviewing students about the upcoming presidential election in 2020.

In a segment for MSNBC Live with Kendis Gibson, reporter Monica Alba spoke to a young man named Parker, who was wearing a Trump badge.

Alba asked Parker:

Why do you like him so much and what policies stand out to you?

To which, he replied:

I would say mainly just the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself. That’s awesome. Just totally perfect.

Realising what had just happened, Alba ignores the comment and swiftly moves on to talk to other students.

The clip has since been shared widely on social media and in extended clips, you can actually see Parker remove the badge and throw it on the floor.

Whether this young man is a Trump supporter or not is beside the point as he has since become a viral star for his boldness on live television.
