Bill and Hillary Clinton just suffered a major humiliation after they were booed at a Billy Joel concert days after the former president’s friend Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges.
Fox News reported that while performing at Madison Square Garden, Joel dedicated a song to the Clintons and flashed them up on the big screen. Though there were initially some cheers for them, they quickly turned to loud boos from the audience.
This came days after a Clinton spokesperson denied that the former president had any knowledge of the sex trafficking that Epstein has been accused of. However, the spokesperson did admit that Clinton took “a total of four trips” with Epstein in 2002 and 2003.
“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 spokesperson said in a statement.

Journalist Conchita Sarnoff later said that Clinton was lying about both the flights and his lack of knowledge about Epstein’s crimes, alleging that he had been a guest on Epstein’s planes many more times over a longer period.
“I know from the pilot logs and these are pilot logs that you know were written by different pilots and at different times that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein’s 27 times,” she claimed, adding that “many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many times he did not.”
“Almost every time that Clinton’s name is on the pilot logs there are underage girls there are initials and there are names of many many girls on that private plane,” Sarnoff continued.

Another report obtained by Fox News states that Clinton and Epstein have been friends for 25 years. In fact, a 1995 report published by the Palm Beach Post states that Clinton was in attendance at a “three hour dinner” with a “very select group of people” at the home of business magnate Ron Perelman in Palm Beach, Florida. Epstein was also in attendance, as was singer Jimmy Buffet, actor Don Johnson, and the then-co-chairman of the DNC Don Fowler.
“Joining Clinton for a three-hour dinner was a very select group of people, some of whom, according to one Democratic Party source, gave as much as $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee for the privilege of dining with the president,” the report added.
