Have you noticed an increase in the number of shooting downs of unidentified flying objects by the US government? So does Aaron Rodgers, and he has a theory about it. No, it’s not because the United States is looking for balloon-sized objects where it used to be, it’s because the creepy government is trying to keep you from looking… Jeffrey Epstein.
“There are a lot of old papers and records of interactions Navy pilots had with unidentified flying objects, so it’s not surprising,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee on Tuesday. “Obviously there was some kind of Chinese spy balloon that was in the air, allegedly, and there were a few other objects that were shot down. I believe it’s been going on for a long time. Interesting timing on everything. It turns out going on a lot of other things in the world.”
Rodgers and McAfee went on to explain the “crazy shit” going on in the world. And Rodgers had this extremely nuanced and well-informed view of Epstein:
“Have you heard of Epstein’s client list about to be released? Some files with names might be released very soon. [Ghislaine] Maxwell was the only person ever convicted of trafficking, and no one involved in trafficking has ever gone to jail, so…nothing to do here.
Seriously, this is one of the dumbest conversations about anything I’ve ever heard in my life, and to have people listening to these masterminds give their opinion on current events is mind-boggling and terribly depressing.
Julie K. Brown, a Miami journalist who has covered Epstein’s story since day one and wrote an entire book about itwas understandably dismayed by Rodgers’ continued spread of misinformation:
But that’s how misinformation spreads, right? Someone with a platform, who hasn’t bothered to research, “heard” about something, usually gets the story wrong, tells someone else – who doesn’t Also didn’t do any research, a giant phone game ensues and “jeffrey epstein chinese balloon dishwasher purple monkey” comes out. And when those who really know better try to fix the record, they get called ” stooges” by a bunch of idiots who never knew what they were talking about in the first place. Great job, Aaron.
