Alabama Student Says 'Jeffrey Epstein Didn't Kill Himself' Live on MSNBC (WATCH)
News networks has awkward moment after student says something unexpected
An Alabama University student caused an awkward moment while being interviewed live on MSNBC about President Donald Trump’s policies, by sneaking in "Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself” at the end of his remarks.
The segment of “MSNBC Live with Kendis Gibson,” featuring reporter Monica Alba, interviewed several pro-Trump students, one of whom expected a “very positive reaction” for Trump’s attendance at the game.
The student then stated she felt the crowed would likely include “either a standing ovation or at least a lot of cheering" for the president.
Alba then turned to a male student named Parker, who was sporting a pro-Trump button.
“Why do you like him so much, and what policies stand out to you?” she asked.
“I would say mainly just the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself,” the student said.
Alba then followed up with an awkward, “that’s awesome. Just totally perfect.”
“All right,” Gibson could be heard saying off-air.
Refusing to acknowledge Parker’s comment, Alba immediately said, “turning back to Alabama, you guys want to tell me a little about the Senate race?”
The viral "Epstein didn't kill himself," meme has picked up a lot of momentum in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, a former Navy SEAL appeared on Fox News declaring, "Epstein didn't kill himself" at the end of the live interview.
Warrior Dog Foundation founder Mike Ritland, a military dog expert and ex-SEAL, caught host Jesse Watters off guard with his off-script statement.

At the end of the interview, about military dogs, Ritland asked if he could give a public service announcement (PSA) to viewers.
"If you see the coverage, and you decide, 'I want one of these dogs,'" a straight-faced Ritland says into the camera, "either buy a fully trained and finished dog from a professional or just don't get one at all.... and Epstein didn't kill himself."
Last month, a leading forensic pathologist, who was present during Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy, announced that the deceased billionaire's injuries suggest he died from "homicidal strangulation" rather than suicidal hanging.
According to former New York City medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden, the body of convicted pedophile and charged child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein bore telltale signs of homicide despite an official ruling that he killed himself.
Clinton-linked Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan federal prison cell in August, where he was awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges.
Dr. Baden revealed to “Fox & Friends” during an exclusive interview Wednesday that Epstein's examination showed his death was more consistent with murder, however.
