Trump Plays Along With Shock Jock’s Nutty Scalia Conspiracy Theory (AUDIO)

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday took a moment to indulge a conservative shock jock who pressed him as to whether he thought the late Justice Antonin Scalia could have been “murdered.”

Radio host Michael Savage told Trump that they needed to discuss the topic “we’ve all been screaming about here, which is Scalia, was he murdered?” He went on to ask Trump whether he thought there needed to be “an immediate autopsy before the body is disposed of.”

Trump attempted to dodge the leading question, saying that he had just landed and heard those kind of rumors.

“It’s a horrible topic, but they say they found a pillow on his face, which is a pretty unusual place to find a pillow,” Trump said. “I can’t tell you what—I can’t give you an answer.”

Scalia died at age 79 on Saturday at a ranch in West Texas. Ranch owner John Poindexter told a local newspaper that he found Scalia in bed with “a pillow over his head” while “his bed clothes were unwrinkled.”

The Texas judge who ruled out an autopsy for Scalia told the Associated Press that the Supreme Court justice had several health problems, including a history of heart trouble and high blood pressure. The judge also said Scalia had been too weak to go through with surgery for a shoulder injury.
