My Take on Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich:

I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I hate when people use some convoluted thought process to explain something which is much easier to attribute to straight incompetence and laziness. Please review the facts above for my feelings on all of this.

The documentary carefully chronicles how Epstein and his girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell (another piece of garbage), dragged unsuspecting young women into some very disgusting circumstances. The vast majority minors at the time.

What I appreciate about the documentary more than others is two things: First, they have women who were actual victims speaking about their experiences and they don’t hold back. It is moving to hear it directly from them and how their lives were impacted. Second, a lot of famous names are thrown around, but it is very clear who is being accused and who is someone that was friends with Epstein. Epstein traveled in very rich circles and not everyone was a child molester.

A lot were, though. Looking at you, Prince Andrew.

Verdict:

This is so gross. It’s a must watch. Oh, Florida. You come off badly. Yes, more so than usual. Watch it here!
