  1. Irresponsible, partisan hack reporting. The most nefarious lies are those that include a modicum of truth.

  2. Well, well, well.  Go to "Whatfinger" website "Katie Couric, Georgie Step., Woody Allen and Chelsea Handler had dinner with pedophile Jeffery Epstein and Prince Andrew in 2010.  Epstein had 21 phone numbers for Slick Willy LOL!!!  This is getting better every day!!! The Satantic media, celebrities, elites are finally getting outed.  Adrenochrome shortage coming LOL!!!!

  3. trump is a good man and when you are rich you will meet people like epstein and not know who he really is.dangous lifestyle when you have wealth'

  4. 2016: Huh, well I'll be. WELL Lets give this man a chance, maybe he won't be so bad after all.

    2019: You know, If we just put a turnip with and oversized tie in the white house no one will be able to tell the difference and we will be in less danger.

    Edit: typos cause I got thumbs like Andre the Giant.

  5. Maybe journalists and others should turn their focus on Melania! She knows much more than she makes believe.

  6. Just say it, Trump is a pedophile who has been accused of raping several girls on Epsteins island.

  7. Nicole rather than asking if Trump is hanging around with disreputable people I'd have to say that in being friends with Trump it's his friends that are hanging around with disreputable people…namely The Donald!

  8. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2922773/Newly-released-flight-logs-reveal-time-trips-Bill-Clinton-Harvard-law-professor-Alan-Dershowitz-took-pedophile-Jeffrey-Epstein-s-Lolita-Express-private-jet-anonymous-women.html

  9. I am so happy that God was remembered in this broadcast. Please say "thanks to God" and don't say "thank goodness". I ask God humbly to Bless you.

  10. Donny and Jeffery make such a lovely couple, thankfully they can come out in today's environment. So who is the Top?

  11. I feel that under Trump Republican Party has become party of pedophiles, rapists, "good" white supremacists & neo-nazis, concentration camp babies in cages, dead kids, in "love" with dictators, ignorant of law, nepotism, highly corrupt etc.

  12. if Trump name smb a "terrific guy", it's all clear. they are from the same species: predators with no empathy. they can smell each other.

  13. Look World two billionaire Sadducees. Two sick, deluded perverted psychos spewing malarkey and manure like the two illegitimate sickos that they are! Die hard old bass.turds.

  14. Me and Donald went to Disneyland he put on a dress and stuck his thumb up me bum on the big dipper great day out

  15. Perverts stick together. Wonder what Trump is hiding? The pervert is a pervert all his life… Trump is no different.

  16. I wonder why William Bar accused himself from the Epstien case ? Did he participate in Epstien's playground?

  17. Pedophiles, rapists, thieves, ignoramuses, cowards, crooks, cheaters, fixers.

    Yes, Dump does know the best people.

  18. The president doesn't like bad press the president is bad press I mean you can't run away from the shadow

  19. Yet the mainstream media helped to suppress this story for years. “Pizzagate” is just a silly conspiracy, there is no group of powerful politically connected pedophiles, remember?

  20. The American culture is simply flawed. It is extreme capitalism mixed up with an antiquated pioneer state way of thinking. The very thing that works best in the world and has the happiest populations in the world, called social-democracy in those countries, is despised by all Americans because they have been misinformed about the meaning of the word 'social' by 50 years of misinformation and disinformation campaigns. So, America will just turn into a new kind of state, a capitialist fascist democracy where only the wealthy have power, this used to be called oligarchy but that is too difficult a word for Americans.

  21. Omg! This guy is more than an a-hole, is a white supremacist. If before I just thought it was a racist sob like many, now I am getting to be convinced that this man is worse. Sick my eye, yes sick like other white supremacist, but never preferences to this a-hole.

  22. democrats- a white suicide party of degeneraets, leeches, ileagles, and their pact with the synagogue of sata media

  23. Ask urself, is this the tip of the ice berg?trump,clinton,ebsteen,barr, how many more billionares, i wonder, what does hiliory, palosey, other top wemen in high goverment know, thanks Russia, for helping us nomanating, perverted moron, opening our eyes

  24. Look at all the BS in your followers' comments and in all your multiple ongoing BS TV reports. Trump didn't "defend" his secretary you MSNBC idiots. He said they need to look into it, and deal with it appropriately if the findings come up showing illegal or inappropriate action. MSNBC FakeNews idiots! He's not Epstein's "best friend" either as your leftist fraudsters like to repeat every day on TV! Epstein was a rich socialite who joined memberships to many of the world's most exclusive private clubs including Trump's Mar-A-Lago. That doesn't make him Trumps "friend". Also, posing with him for a photo doesn't make them friends. Trump was a superstar celebrity back then. He posed for hundreds of photos. Are you gonna mention how Trump kicked Epstein out of his Mar-A-Lago club many years ago and banned Epstein permanently from club membership after Trump learned Epstein was accused of sexual assault? No, you're not. Because you have an agenda. You don't tell news. You sell an agenda. If you told the real news then you would headline the fact that Bill Clinton regularly flew on Epstein's private "Lolita Express" jet 27 times, and several of which he ditched his secret service guards so he can have privacy. We've been looking into Clinton's flights on Epstein's airplane for years now. But now that we finally have proof with the publicly released flight manifest, you MSNBC idiots are circling the wagons to protect your fellow Democrat and make this all about Trump by building up a weak tie to Epstein that means absolutely nothing. So you have to lie and exaggerate to make it into something sinister. The only thing sinister is YOU PEOPLE for falsely accusing the wrong people of being pedos and defending possible REAL pedos like Clinton and other Leftists on that exposed manifest. How dare you! We've known this matter about Clinton's involvement for YEARS! We finally made the manifest public! You can't steal our story from us and make it about Trump! LIARS! After we expose The Clintons for all their crimes, (including paying money to hire someone to author fake smears of Trump and have him spied on), we're going to go after you people at MSNBC, CNN, Washington Post and the rest of you criminal Lefties disguised as "media" for wittingly accommodating their crimes.

  25. Complete silence about Slick Willie on all msm.
    What a joke Democrats are.
    26 flights mean nothing if you're a Demoncrap right.
    Hypocrisy at its best

  26. Why are the so-called Evangelicals okay with the most morally bankrupt president in history? I think they need to study the words of Jesus a bit more carefully before they embrace someone who once said he'd be dating his own daughter if she wasn't his daughter; a comment made while she was still a teenager.

  27. Never thought in 2015,, that Our Great Country would be totally turned into what I call an X Rated Horrific Nightmare. To think such crap would be allowed to enter the White House, for any reason,, is beyond belief, and is still tolerated. This Sexual Circus just continues. The stench is deplorable..Outright Unheard of, at least in my mind, in my lifetime.

  28. Chuck Shumer needs to resign and STFU !!
    And Trump is not and was not involved with Epstein, stop this continuous bashing of Trump.
    MSNBC should be taken off the air.

  29. Everyone involved in this guy's light sentence should be charged for all his crimes committed after he was released.

  30. Why are we pretending like we don't already know the answers to these questions? Why are these at "journalists" acting like it's some great mystery? He got away with it because he's rich and powerful. He got away with it because of other rich powerful white men sheltering him. Is not complicated. Can we call a spade a spade for once?

  31. Epstein is trumps buddy,he's down with him too,there all predators.even the potus.Running our country by racists & predators.

  32. MSNBC is a snake pit. You should really be in the Entertainment category….but even that would be a stretch! FU!

  33. I hope that the people who voted for 45 have regained their minds and they can now see what kind of person 45 is. He said it himself admitting what he did to contestants and now he agrees with Epstein. Hello!!!

  34. MISSING PIECES OF THIS PUZZLE:
    Years ago I was doing research of: DR. ALFRED KINSEY, PH. D.. who wrote a book called ""HUMAN SEXUALITY"""….; he used nine pedophiles around the planet Earth to substantiate his thesis: *Children are born with an active sexuality*….therefore, it is their parents' duty to set their children in….otherwise the child won't know, supposedly. THEN….THEN….Kinsey went around the 50 states of the United States and spoke openly to the legislators about pedophiles being locked up in prisons for something that is solidly REAL & NATURAL. Kinsey asked/demanded that pedophiles be let out and freed from prisons and jails for their ''''natural''''' behaviors and that a practice be developed for a ''lighter sentence''' for pedophiles…or no sentence to prison at all.
    Kinsey had nine pedophiles (all males??) delivering information to him. And some of the pedophiles told him about the children they had stolen, children they had murdered and they also told Kinsey about their jobs/employment (and some or one, was a government employee that clocked long miles on the road (traveling by car) from town to town, state to state, collecting government data: (I can't remember that particular: LOOK IT UP). *Every American should research Alfred Kinsey, Ph. D. and his works: first book published in 1954, (if memory serves me) and in that book he declared that '''incest''' was natural, healthy, normal and the duty of a parent. It ended up trending and populations in the U.S. have a period of trials for sexual molestation of children by their parent(s): particularly: North East coast of U.S. Or wealthy, they went to a psychiatrist ''out of pocket''.
    One of the greatest '''prophets''' of Alfred Kinsey, giving money & support, was: Playboy Enterprises Inc., Hugh Hefner, who died in September, 2017.
    NOTE: Bill Cosby was a friend to Hefner.
    NOTE: It was been known for sometime that Epstein airplane and island was peppered with kids for pedophile purposes.

  35. I hear this term all the time : "underage woman" thats an oxymoron. That a CHILD, not a woman. Even women in media do this. They did the same thing during the Stephen Collin (7th heaven dad) scandal. He referred to a 10-14 year old children as Young women. this is on purpose and vile

  36. The smugness entitlement of the thumbnail photo, geez louise ! Sickening ! I couldn't even watch the post..

  37. I just hope Trump doesn't distance himself from his barber. Who else knows the secrets of the 3-11, mullet, swept-over, swept-back, up-do, up don't.

    Epstein has dirt of men at the top. As soon as he goes to jail, he'll will tell-all.

  38. Trump said "get out of my resort" after he discovered what Epstein was doing.
    ANTIFA media peddles Post Hoc propaganda like Obama made up the innuendo of peeing on Russian hotel beds with hookers for Hillary's dossier.

    What's more likely, an Epstein picture with Slick Willy, Harvey Weinstein and Anthony Weiner on Cheese Pizza Island or a picture of Trump and Epstein?

  39. Thank you President Trump for signing all those executive orders for sexually abused children and now the abusers will all be arrested thanks to you. No other President has done anything to protect the children only President Trump God Bless President Trump

  40. Didn’t he get charged for solicitation of prostitution? I can’t remember exactly but I’m pretty sure that he bought those women

  41. Trump is a distraction. Next week there will be another scandal. You already have forgotten the scandals of last week. In the meantime, the real criminals can continue their pillaging and destruction of American society and culture, hiding behind decades of misinformation and disinformation of the population. When I talk to American university students, I am stunned at their ignorance, stupidity, lack of general education, they all seem to suffer from the Dunning-Kruger Effect, like Trump. Coming to Europe, they are amazed how different it is from what they have been told, how happy the people are compared to Americans, how peaceful and safe it is. Yet, Americans are indoctrinated from kindergarten onward they live in the best of all possible worlds and have no responsibility for anything at all even though their army is stronger than the next ten combined. It is like giving an irresponsible rich kid drugs and guns and then let them act scot-free, oh sorry, that is not 'like', it is exactly like that. Plenty of drugs, plenty of guns, plenty of money, no responsibility for anything at all, not feeling the need to answer up to anything at all. It is exactly like described in Candide by Voltaire with the ever-optimistic Professor Pangloss saying "It is all for the best" and "we live in the best of all possible worlds". Well, I beg to differ.

  42. Basically Acosta said I understand Mr. Epstein that you are rich, white and well connected, so I'm going to shield you from a long prison sentence even though we know you are guilty!

    And we won't worry about the law that says we must to notify the victims!

  43. So Acosta has to leave, but Trump gets to stay after 22-24 women and children have accused him? What a disgrace.

  44. Is there anyway that Epstein would come up with a video involving donnie and young girls???
    I bet he has it, people like Epstein have camera everywhere,

  45. Epstein and Trump were the best of friends, as a matter of fact Epstein turned Trump onto his first child virgin. Look for yourself www.justiceforkatie.com third screen down watch the child now a adult women explain just what happened.

  46. Really where is your head at sad people making money with a lie but you are also too blame, judgement is coming no one is beyond his word and no where to hide! The culling of a population ain't gonna happen dream on when you go underground we will pour cement into your entrance there is no escape buried alive sad that you don't love me like i love you?

  47. Hey dont forget Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Kevin Spacey and many others implicated here. Don't make it a left vs right issue, just a right vs wrong issue, that's all you need to do.

  48. Kavanaugh hearings, all the drama at the border, all the self created emergency crisis scenarios. But its actually funny that Stormy Daniels started it all! How many girls never made it back from Pedofile island? Cross check the photos from David Peckers safe with Epsteins safe in Manhattan, France, Miami, and Pedofile island. Match them with missing children database world wide. Rich entitled dirtbags like to make snuff movies to brag and intimidate young kids into cooperation, or show what power is capable of.

  49. Nothing here about the Democrats, Bill Clinton’s reputation and his involvement with Jeffrey Epstein and the Lolita Express. 🤔🤭🤫😬🙄

  50. Children don't know evil until you define it to them, then psychologically they becom infected.

  51. Jeez! This country really IS run by the mob. I feel like I’m watching a Scorsese movie. Epstein this! Acosta that!

  52. How do you distance yourself from flying with this guy 26 times and yet you harp on one statement and one photo of Trump.lol
    More fake news
