Fox’s Geraldo Rivera: Trump Was ‘Brave’ to Wish Ghislaine Maxwell Well
Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera on Wednesday once again rallied to the defense of accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, claiming it was “brave” for President Donald Trump to wish the Jeffrey Epstein associate “well” during a Tuesday press conference.
While resuming his coronavirus task force briefings on Tuesday afternoon, the president was asked whether Maxwell—who has been charged child sex trafficking and perjury—would “turn in powerful men” and implicate others in Epstein’s pedophile sex ring.
“I don’t know. I haven’t been following it too much,” Trump replied. “I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach. I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is.”
Trump’s warm words for the accused Epstein madam quickly sparked a frenzy on social media and even prompted some Republicans to express discomfort over the remarks. “This is unacceptably obtuse for a woman accused of the most morally depraved of crimes,” tweeted Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who added that Maxwell needs to be “severely punished.”
