Over the weekend, when billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for, among other things, sex trafficking, the mainstream media went into overdrive trying to set the narrative that he and President Donald Trump were the best of friends and that they had a relationship that went back years.
Most people who dug even a little on that concept – that Trump and Epstein are friends – found out pretty quickly that President Trump banned Epstein from Mar-A-Lago years ago for messing around with underage girls, teenagers.
On Friday morning, during an impromptu presser on the White House Lawn, President Trump set the record straight with the media.

That is a pretty stark statement from the president. He was never impressed with Epstein, and he never went to his island, and he kicked Epstein out of Mar-A-Lago, just like the reports from all of those years ago said.
What is interesting about this statement, though, is not just that it appeared on the Twitter feed of one of the mainstream media mouthpieces, but that the president gave the members of the fourth estate a directive: find out who went to that island. He hasn’t said find out what they did once they were there yet, just who went there. Rumors have been circulating for years that the visitors to Little St. James, Epstein’s island, is a who’s who of celebrity and political culture.
Given the number of people arrested this week for sex trafficking crimes, including R. Kelly, worldwide, it looks like the Department of Justice’s crusade to save the children and women from their pimps and handlers has moved up the food chain. At this point, the sky is the limit on who might be nabbed next. One thing is for certain, those with name recognition have to be quaking in their tightie whities lest they are connected in the public eye.
