Was Jeff Epstein Bill Clinton’s Friend — or Donald Trump’s Friend?

Go ahead and google now-disgraced financier Jeff Epstein’s name right now.

Here are the first headlines we saw when we did just that:

  • “Despite having praised Epstein, Trump now says he ‘wasn’t a fan'” — MSNBC
  • “Spokesman: Bill Clinton ‘knows nothing’ about ‘terrible crimes’ alleged against Epstein” — USA Today
  • “Trump called Epstein a ‘terrific guy’ who enjoyed ‘younger women’ before denying relationship with him” — Washington Post

Clearly, there’s a bit of framing going on here, so we’ve decided to make it simple for you: famous people tend to know and associate with other famous people. It’s not exactly clear to what degree that President Donald Trump or former President Bill Clinton associated with Epstein, but you get it — the rich and powerful tend to enjoy their own company.

Considering that Epstein was a major financier, it’s no wonder he came across one of America’s most famous real estate moguls at some point — or a former president. The question is — with Epstein disgraced and accused of a litany of terrible crimes, which relationship do you think the mainstream media is going to focus on more?
