Jeffrey Epstein caught Trump ogling a young woman in his office — then told him ‘she’s not for you’: report

Published

on

A new report from the New York Times features an on-the-record claim from a former associate of the late accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein about a disturbing interaction she had with President Donald Trump.

The Times report is about two sisters named Maria and Annie Farmer, who both allege that longtime Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell made inappropriate physical contact with them 24 years ago. At the time, Maria Farmer was 25 years old, while Annie was just 16.

The story is mostly about the sisters’ unsuccessful efforts to get law enforcement officials to believe their stories about the inappropriate behavior that Epstein and Maxwell exhibited toward them.

While recounting her story, Maria Farmer recalls once seeing Donald Trump in Epstein’s office. She tells the Times that Epstein at one point during the meeting caught Trump “eyeing” her and then abruptly told him, “She’s not for you.”

Farmer’s mother, Janice Swain, tells the Times that she recalls Maria telling her about this interaction shortly after it happened.

Trump had a long friendship with Epstein before the two had a falling out last decade, and Trump now insists that he was “not a fan” of the accused billionaire sex trafficker.

In a 2002 interview, however, Trump described Epstein as “a lot of fun to be with” and said that Epstein “likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness

Published

on

As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.

He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”

It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.

This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend

Published

on

As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.

At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.

Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.

The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.

Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.

"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
