    A terrible Labor Secretary, by Trump insider accounts.

    Only the best people....

    We don’t even need a department of labor.

    Bare minimum of the consequences he should face. He failed young girls that were systematically raped and exploited and then got up in front of the country and lied about it.

    Anyway, lot of rich and powerful people have to be sweating this story. More victims coming out and it’s pretty clear Epstein didn’t not make his money on Wall Street.

    Here is a New York Magazine article about Epstein from 2002 that is well worth the read.

    You would have to really try very, very hard to pick worse people than Trump has done.

    Of course, part of the problem is that nobody with the qualifications or a scintilla of ethical backbone wants to work for this moronic lunatic and forever have the stench of this presidency on them.

    And those few who do realize pretty quickly what a mistake it was to join forces with Trump and they quit ... like Rex Tillerson

    The other problem is that Trump is a terrible judge of ability and character. Trump's entire administration has been like one long bad season of celebrity apprentice.

    Trump’s a sleazeball with no integrity or character, so he likes to have similar people around him.

    So the sexual assaulter is losing the defender of the sexual assaulter?

    ANYBODY involved in the cover up should pay. I think most Dems have been clear on this point. GOP has not.

    Vance, Ken Starr, and Dershowitz all should face "their time in the barrel" as an indicted man once said.

    And of course we need to know about this incident that allegedly got Epstein kicked out of Mar A Lago...why wasn't law enforcement notified? Was Joe Pa running the show down there too?

    Cracks me up how you dipshits are collectively villainizing Acosta.

    Wait until the full details related to Epstein and his close relationships with prominent Dems comes out.

    Will they all be resigning then?

    Acosta had previously work for the law firm representing the pedo when he gave him the sweetheart deal.

    With a lack of good reasons for why Acosta did what he did I agree. I have heard that the "intelligence community" asked him to go easy for some reason but that sound awfully fishy to me.

    He was a terrible hire from the start.

    Has Acosta's Swiss bank account been examined yet to see how much Epstein gave him for that deal?

    Libtardz are more upset with the guy who put Epstein in jail than the they are the child rapist Epstein himself. Being a fellow libtard has its privileges. #TDS

    Anyone mixed up with this guy should be outed and punished to the extent possible. Don’t care one iota what party they are aligned with.

    Some things just aren’t partisan.

    Or...shouldn’t be, at least.

    It should be.

    Now to push it over the cliff - Acosta looks creepy - maybe all it took was a visit to the island?

    The way I look at it you must have some redeeming qualities if she agreed to marry you.

    Interesting. Acosta said former Palm Beach State's Attorney Barry Krischer wanted to let Epstein off with no jail time and without having to register as a sex offender. The Palm Beach Police Chief and the lead detective on the case both said Krsischer went from let's get this guy to finding reasons not to prosecute. So, who ya gonna believe?

    Krischer had a history of selective tough action. Went after Rush Limbaugh on doctor shopping charges, but laid off some others he should have pursued. So there you go. Was the fix in from The Clintons? WJC was still president back then.

    Hadn't Bush43 been President for 6 years when the charges were filed against Epstein?

    It’s interesting that we have all this outrage against Acosta, but I can’t seem to find one post about the victims of this scumbag. These were little girls he raped. Incredibly sad. You guys are worse than the politicians you claim to support or loathe.

    Agree with all here who support the victims. It’s unbelievable that when someone famous does something wrong it becomes political. Guy was loaded. Hobnobbed w many and both sides think it’s important to say he was closer to the other party. How ridiculous. I’m no fan of our legal system. I’ve been burned by it but this IS how it works right. Is anyone actually surprised that The guy with the deep pockets got a sweeter deal. They lawyers probably hatched the deal and went out for drinks afterwards. The crime is Epstein’s and hopefully he rots

    Acosta looks like the mutant older brother of Stephen Miller. Spot a trend?

    Wasn’t trying to offend you in any way. You mentioned he looks creepy, so I was just making the point that he reminded me of another bad egg in the administration, in my opinion. I’ve already said that Stephen Miller looks like Squidward, and that passed your test, so I thought I was safe.

    The police chief and cop were talking about shenanigans happening as early as 2006. Doesn't matter who was president--Clintons had to protect WJC, who was on 26 of Epstein's Lolita Flights. He says 4, but the manifests say 26. If Epstein went down hard, others would have gone with him. Wonder if all that partying will catch up with him before he writes his memoirs? Some can only hope.

    Apparently you can only judge people by their looks if you don’t agree with what they do. To someone like Screw, Stephen Miller is a god, so no jokes about his looks are permitted.
