As Nick Arama wrote on Sunday, CNN tried and failed Saturday to get a crowd of college football fans ahead of the Alabama-LSU game to go negative on President Trump by asking them questions about the impeachment inquiry.
Another network asking questions about the President was MSNBC, which scanned the crowd and came upon a boisterous group who they decided to talk to. One of the guys in the group was wearing a Trump pin.
The reporter, Monica Alba, asked of the young man “Why do you like [Trump] so much and what policies stand out to you?”
The young man named Parker gave an answer that momentarily stunned Alba:
“I would say mainly just the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself. That’s awesome. Just totally perfect.”
After a few seconds, Alba attempted to switch gears and move on from the answer.

As the DC Examiner points out, this isn’t the first time recently that the conspiracy theory about Epstein has been blurted out on national TV:
Mike Ritland, a former Navy SEAL, made the same claim during the end of his appearance on Fox News’s Watters World. Right as he was ending a public service announcement about hero military dogs, he said, “And Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Watters chuckled and then added, “OK, thank you for that commentary.”
“Epstein didn’t kill himself” has become a popular meme that has popped up in some unusual places, like on the bottom of beer cans from a brewery in California and on a digital highway sign in Massachusetts.
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were at the game and received thunderous applause from those in attendance.
LSU won the game 46-41.
