Some Hollywood figures let the Russia and Trump conspiracy theories fly on the news that convicted pedophile and accused child sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his Metropolitan Correctional Center prison cell on Saturday morning, after he had reportedly been taken off of suicide watch.
“Vlad” said actor Ron Perlman, a clear reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Showtime’s Billions creator Brian Koppelman wasn’t as coy as Perlman, writing “Epstein suicide. Sure. Seems likely. Probably what happened. Hey, folks, we’re Russia now. Enjoy it.”

Hey, folks, we’re Russia now. Enjoy it.
Is that the same thing as Putin’d? https://t.co/VtCOA5HqmZ— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) August 10, 2019
It is disturbing that a powerful billionaire accused of sex trafficking minors, who was already on suicide watch, has died while in federal custody, his many secrets about other powerful men going with him to the grave. This sounds like something that would happen in Russia, no?

The millionaire, who counted Bill and Hillary Clinton among his many powerful friends, was apparently taken off suicide watch just weeks after attempting to harm himself.
Far-left Hollywood once again cannot deal with the facts and is now retreating into pure fantasy.
There is no basis to believe the Clinton’s had anything to do with Epstein’s death. For Trump to suggest they’re somehow involved is irresponsible. He should be forced to immediately retract this but his own party is unwilling to hold him accountable for any of his failings. https://t.co/qnNYRkAl6F
