This will not be to everyone’s taste, but I’ve just watched a 37-minute attempt at an interview with Trump, available here. The main thought that came to mind was ‘God help us.’ But that comes as no surprise. What perhaps was of passing interest was the effort made by the interviewer, a chap called Jonathan, to try to get the President to answer questions. Wishful thinking on that score. The interview has been widely reported, not least that Trump wished Ghislaine Maxwell ‘well’ - practically referring to her as an old friend (pity she won’t be tried and convicted whilst he still has the power to pardon her). What hasn’t been reported was Trump’s repeated remarks that Jeffrey Epstein may have died as a result of homicide. He clearly intended his well wishes to Maxwell to imply that she too might meet a grisly end in a state penitentiary. Given that Trump is so routinely thick one wonders whether he blurted out a known unknown, an unknown known, an unknown unknown or merely something he dimly remembered seeing in an intelligence briefing. No, that’s asking too much.
