I don't know about English, but the French sentence is an idiom : it is used as-is to explain that someone does something and ignores the consequences. One can understand it like "Any consequences may come after us".

Therefore, in French, it carries a clear meaning. I don't know about the English translation tho :/

I'm adding @NNC English

Even as a native, I don't understand what this sentence is trying to communicate.

What do others think?

See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A...e_d%C3%A9luge. The same expression exists literally in German. The meaning is, "I don't care what happens after I'm gone."
