Hot on the heels of another incident in which an unruly audience member repeatedly asked her about the disastrous foreign policy decisions made by President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton was accosted by an audience member who demanded answers to questions about former President Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
The event at which the incident occurred was a campaign event in the Houston, Texas, area. The audience member was independent journalist Alex Rosen, who asked, “Hey, Hillary. Why did your husband visit Epstein Island 26 times?”
For reference, records released in 2016 show that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane 26 times. He does not, however, appear to have visited Epstein’s notorious island in the Caribbean, Little St. James, also known as “Pedo Island” to many familiar with the Epstein horror story.
In any case, the audience started booing and shouting down Rosen while security first surrounded him and then dragged him out of the event. “Is this really necessary, officer? You guys are dragging a grown man. Is this necessary? Come on,” Rosen protested as he was dragged away.
Conservative Twitter personality Collin Rugg tweeted about the incident, saying, “JUST IN: Independent journalist Alex Rosen (@iFightForKids) gets literally dragged out of a Hillary Clinton event after he asks her about Bill Clinton’s trips to Epstein island. Best thing I’ve seen all week. For reference, Bill Clinton was close with Epstein & took a whopping 26 trips on Epstein’s plane. The same plane where passengers had sex with underage girls.”

This incident follows one in which Clinton was accosted by an audience member at a speech given at Columbia University in New York City. That audience member demanded she denounce President Biden’s foreign policy decisions, particularly the provision of military equipment to the Ukrianians.
He said, at one point, “President Joe Biden is calling for a hundred billion dollars of funding for Israel, Taiwan, and Ukraine. And we’re supposed to just bundle these together and pretend like we’re gonna rush to World War 3 and we’re all just gonna let Hillary Clinton sit here…”
He later added, “What I want to hear is Hillary Rodham Clinton to denounce Joe Biden’s warmongering speech. He’s trying to push us to World War II!.” He then said, “It’s not about Israel and Palestine. This isn’t football, it’s not Team America!”
In a 2019 statement posted to Twitter, Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Urena, said, “President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York.”
He added, “In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation.”
The statement also said, “He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
