Bombshell book reveals Jeffrey Epstein was a Mar-a-Lago member — despite Trump Organization’s denials

A new book called “The Grifter’s Club: Trump, Mar-a-Lago, and the Selling of the Presidency” provides documentary evidence that late alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was a member of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, despite past claims that Epstein was only a frequent guest.

Nicholas Nehamas, a reporter for the Miami Herald and one of the book’s authors, tells website News & Guts that he and his coauthors found that Epstein “was in fact listed as a member of Mar-a-Lago,” and that “the authors viewed a membership log that includes Epstein, with an address at his mansion in Palm Beach.”

Nehamas also reveals the reason why Trump kicked Epstein out of the club in 2007.

“Previously reported court records state that Trump banned Epstein from visiting the club for an alleged sexual assault on a girl,” he explained. “We were told the young woman was the daughter of a member and Trump kicked his friend out to protect Mar-a-Lago’s brand. Because the club’s membership is a closely guarded secret, no one has known the full extent of Epstein’s ties to Mar-a-Lago until our reporting.”

Trump’s past friendship with Epstein has come under scrutiny ever since the billionaire was arrested on child sex trafficking charges last year.

In 2002, Trump raised eyebrows when he said that Epstein “likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Fox News analyst slams Trump for visit to Ginsburg’s casket: ‘Maybe it’s to get the boos’

Published

Fox News analyst Chris Stirewalt was bewildered on Thursday after President Donald Trump showed up at the Supreme Court to pay his respects to former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

As Trump appeared next to Ginsburg's casket, the crowd could be heard jeering the president.

"I don't know why he went," a confused Stirewalt said. "He didn't go to John Lewis' memoriam. He wasn't there for that stuff. And for good reason. Right? These people don't want him there. Ruth Bader Ginsburg's folks don't want him there. It's going to be an ugly scene."

"I guess, he's the president. He can go where ever he wants," the Fox News contributor added. "And he has security so that he can go do it. But you just wonder what the political calculation was here in going to a place where you know you will be received poorly, going to a place where you know the folks there don't want you to be."

BUSTED: ‘Real people’ in pro-Trump Facebook testimonials are actually Republican operatives

Published

on

On Thursday, Gizmodo revealed that many of the Trump supporters identified as "real people whose lives have been positively impacted by President Trump’s policies" in the president's Facebook ads are actually Republican candidates and operatives.

"Take this ad that is currently running on Facebook," reported Matt Novak. "It shows Kim Sherk, who’s not identified by name in the ad, and yet is the president of the Georgia Federation of Republican Women. A Georgia newspaper, the Marietta Daily Journal recognized Sherk, which might be why these ads are running in states like California, Illinois, and Mississippi, according to the Facebook ad library, rather than her home state of Georgia ... the ad never identifies Sherk as a political operative, let alone one who’s visited the White House, as we can see from a photo posted to the Cobb County Republican Party website."

President spins baseless conspiracy theory about Trump ballots found in a trash can

Published

on

President Donald Trump baselessly claimed six ballots cast for him had been found in a trash can, as part of his ongoing efforts to undermine confidence in the election.

The president appeared on Fox Radio with host Brian Kilmeade, who tried to help him clean up his refusal to accept the peaceful transfer of power if he lost November's election.

"You created some news, as usually do," Kilmeade said. "One thing you said, when asked about if you lose the election, will you accept the result. You said, 'Well, we're going have to see what happens, you know, I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots, the ballots are disaster.' Many think you are saying if you do lose, you'll never, ever leave. That's now what you're saying."
