During the last version of The Game Awards 2022 A boy took to the stage at the time of the award for Game of the Year, or GOTY if you prefer, and uttered some bizarre phrases that put Bill Clinton into play.

More precisely, he uttered a similar phrase to neo-Nazi far-right conspiracy circles, stating that “Bill Clinton is a reformed orthodox rabbi.” The plot he’s referring to is that the leaders of various nations are actually Jews who control the world (there are many variations, actually, but let’s stick to one delusion at a time).
