There are a few things you can always count on in this world—the sun is always going to rise, taxes are always going to come due and QAnoners are always going to find a way to blame absolutely everything on former Democratic Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Sure enough, within a short time of news breaking of the assassination of Haiti's President, Jovenel Moïse, the word "Clinton" began trending on Twitter as hordes of QAnon devotees linked the murder to Clinton and her husband, former Democratic President Bill Clinton, with absolutely no basis.

Haiti figures heavily in the lore of the QAnon conspiracy theory, adherents of which believe the world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshipping, child-trafficking, baby eating pedophiles led by the Clintons and others like Madonna and Tom Hanks who Donald Trump is working to expose.

The Haiti fixation stems from the Clintons' two decades of charity work on the island nation through their non-profit The Clinton Foundation, especially the notoriously bungled relief efforts following the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in the country. The Clinton Foundation is one of several organizations, including the Red Cross and Oxfam, that have come under scrutiny for their roles in those relief efforts.

As usual, QAnoners have taken a legitimate issue and spun it into a nefarious plot, this one claiming the Clintons have murdered countless informants attempting to blow the whistle on their charity work in Haiti, which many of them believe is merely a front for the Satanic child-sex blood rituals they supposedly perform there.

According to QAnoners, Moïse is the latest of those informants to be murdered. Never mind Moïse was an unpopular and notoriously corrupt leader whom many feared was turning Haiti into a dictatorship. For QAnoners, there is only one explanation for his assassination and it leads directly to the Clintons.

Alt-right provocateur Jack Posobiec, a regular amplifier of conspiracy theories, posted a tweet subtly linking the couple to the assassination just hours after it occurred.


Far-right YouTuber Styxhexenhammer666 was a bit more overt in his allegations.

On Twitter, more level-headed people couldn't help but eyeroll at this ludicrous accusation.










Moïse was assassinated at his home in the early hours of Wednesday morning by a group of suspected mercenaries posing as agents of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

Four suspects have been killed by police and two more have been arrested.
