Hillary Clinton was in the hot seat on Thursday night as she appeared on The Daily Show with daughter Chelsea to promote their new tome, The Book of Gutsy Women.
In the interview, Hillary talked about Trump’s presidency, her thoughts on his Ukraine dealings and how she managed to murder an incarcerated pedophile while still making it look like a suicide.
‘I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?’ asked Trevor Noah.

What the Chel: A rather solemn Chelsea later noted that there is a ‘constant erosion of sanity and truth these days’
The line left his guests and the audience laughing, though as Noah pointed out there are also a number of people who still believe that unfounded and unsubstantiated rumor to be true.
‘Because you’re not in power but you have all the power,’ Noah explained to Hillary.
‘I really need to understand how you do what you do, because you seem to be behind everything nefarious, and yet you do not use it to become president.’
He then added: ‘Honestly, what does it feel like being the boogeyman to the right?’
Hillary explained that it was a ‘surprise’ to her every time it happens, and stated that things have become even more ridiculous’ with the expansion of the internet around the globe.

She also noted how much people want to promote ‘these crazy ideas and theories about her,’ and said:
‘Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did to get them to upset,’ said Hillary.
Chelsea then jumped in to discuss how effective these false attacks could be in the end however, citing the recent presidential election as her example.
‘I will never forget reading an article after the 2016 election where the reporter interviewed someone who had been an undecided voter and he said that he thought my mom had won all three debates and that she clearly had a greater command of the subject matter,’ said Chelsea.
‘And yet, he just kept reading that she had murdered more than 50 people, and he said, somewhat nonchalantly, “I don’t think that she murdered 50, but, like, what if she murdered two?”‘
That too prompted laughter, while a rather solemn Chelsea noted that there is a ‘constant erosion of sanity and truth these days.’
