Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s mishandled case is coming under fire. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta is now facing calls from top Democrats to resign over his involvement in the controversial plea deal years ago for Epstein — who is now a registered sex offender. Epstein’s case is now being handled by the SDNY’s Public Corruption Unit over the improper handling of the previous Epstein case by prosecutors in Florida, including Acosta, who helped to cut the sex offender a sweetheart deal.

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr said that he had recused himself from the case because his former law firm, Kirkland & Ellis, had represented Epstein. But, suddenly today, Barr said he’s not recusing himself from Epstein’s sex trafficking case.

Although it’s been widely known that accusations of Epstein’s sexual predation have dogged the billionaire for decades, Donald Trump, who has faced accusations of sexual assault before, defended his Labor Secretary while trying to distance himself from his pal Epstein.

A reporter screamed out a question to Trump today, while everyone else was silent, “Do you support your friend, Jeffrey Epstein?”

Trump said nothing at the time.

Finally, Trump was seemingly forced to address the issue, saying that he “wasn’t a fan” of Epstein’s even though he previously referred to him as a “terrific guy.”

“I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him, I mean people in Palm Beach knew him. He was a fixture in Palm Beach,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “I had a falling out with him a long time ago. I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years. I wasn’t a fan.”


And then he defended Acosta.

Geez, I can’t imagine why it’s hard to believe the “president.”

“He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side,” Trump said previously. “No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

We suppose Trump will claim that he barely knows New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, even though he was just seen dining with him — less than five months after the billionaire businessman was charged as part of a South Florida prostitution investigation.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
