Since the arrest of alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, political figures like former Vice President Bill Clinton have been doing everything they can to distance themselves from the billionaire.
Clinton has denied rumors that he has visited Epstein's "sex island" where Epstein and his elite friends would have orgies with underaged girls.
These rumors are nothing new. HBO host Bill Maher joked about the allegations against Clinton back in 2015.
"Hillary's emails? I want to see Bill's: Hey, Epstein, gas up the plane, let's go to Sex Island! I want to be b*lls deep in Russian wh*re soon!" Maher said in a tweet back in 2015.

Clinton has been doing everything he can to distance himself from these rumors. Directly after the allegations came out against Epstein, Clinton's office released this statement below.
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. 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. Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. 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.
Recent revelations show that Clinton may have lied during his statement considering records show that Clinton dined with Epstein in 1995.
Check out what Fox News had to say about the breaking news:
But according to a story published back in March 1995 by the Palm Beach Post, then-President Clinton attended a “three-hour dinner” at the time with a “very select group of people” at the Palm Beach home of business magnate Ron Perelman. The diverse group included Epstein — as well as singer Jimmy Buffet, actor Don Johnson, then-co-chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and others.
“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 said.
The nearly 25-year-old report, reviewed by Fox News, indicates that Clinton and Epstein interacted years before the instances detailed in the former president’s statement this week.
Investigative reporter Conchita Sarnoff also broke potential damning news for Clinton on Monday during an interview on Fox News.
Sarnoff made the appalling revelation that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein's private jet, the Lolita Express, 27 times.
She wasn't done. According to Sarnoff, underaged girls were on the same jet almost every time that Bill Clinton was on the plane.
"I know from the pilot logs. And these were pilot logs that were written by different pilots at different times, that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein 27 times… Many times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many he did not. Almost every time Clinton’s name is on the pilot log, there are underage girls," Sarnoff stated.
She later added that Clinton is lying about having limited contact with Epstein.
