President Donald Trump took time during a press conference to offer well-wishes to accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, who helped billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Now a Republican lawmaker is condemning him for it.

Maxwell and Epstein preyed upon young girls for decades. Epstein infamously died in custody after not killing himself last year and Maxwell was caught and arrested recently.

She has indicated that she might be willing to out some powerful men, which could include Trump himself since he frequently spent time with her and Epstein.

Rather than express disgust with Maxwell and her crimes, Trump wished her well.

“I just wish her well, frankly,” Trump said. “I’ve met her numerous times over the years…I just wish her well, whatever it is.”

Trump’s remarks sparked concern that he may be signalling that he would pardon Maxwell in exchange for her silence.

“The president has nothing to say about a gun-toting madman who just murdered the son of a federal judge. But he takes time out of his press conference to send well wishes to a woman accused of trafficking teenage girls for sex,” a federal prosecutor said, according to Politico. “That’s gross on its face, and in the aftermath of the Stone pardon, it reeks of the president indicating to her that he might reward her if she’ll stay silent about whatever she knows about him.”

Surprisingly, even right-wing extremist Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) condemned Trump’s sickening remark.

But instead of feeling equally disgusted, Trump supporters attacked Roy.

Trump supporters are quick to pull the “innocent until proven guilty” line in defense of a pedophile, but had no problem with George Floyd and other unarmed black men being executed by police. This hypocrisy is seriously outrageous and their defense of Trump here is beyond immoral.
