Social media users have a hunch about the blue dress former President Bill Clinton is depicted wearing in a painting found at the late Jeffrey Epstein’s home.
When police searched Epstein’s $56 million Manhattan townhouse, they found a bizarre painting of Clinton. The work was “prominently” displayed at the entrance of the home, a law enforcement source told the New York Post.
The Post confirmed the existence of the painting and an art gallery website also offers the portrait for sale. It was created by Petrina Ryan-Kleid, a graduate of the New York Academy of Art New York, and is entitled, “Parsing Bill.”
While initial reports suggested the dress might be a reference to Monica Lewinsky, some commenters on Twitter said it looks similar to an outfit worn by the former secretary of state, and Clinton’s wife, Hillary Clinton.
Bill Clinton dress painting and alternate theories about how Jeffrey Epstein died
On both the political left and right, alternative theories about how Epstein died have quickly proliferated, with many pointing to his former powerful friends. Some have attempted to tie the Clintons to the demise of the enigmatic financier and convicted pedophile. #ClintonBodyCount and #ClintonCrimeFamily were trending on Twitter on Saturday along with a competing hashtag, TrumpBodyCount.
Records obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s private jet, which the media has nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”
Epstein, who was facing up to 45 years in prison on charges of sex trafficking girls as young as 14, was found unconscious Saturday morning in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. He was pronounced dead that morning after apparently hanging himself.
