“I had a falling out with him a long time ago, I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office last week. “I wasn’t a fan.”
A new video uncovered in the NBC archives is once again questioning those claims.
The November 1992 clip shows Trump relishing in Epstein’s arrival at his Mar-a-Lago estate, as the two men leer at the women dancing around them. “She’s hot,” Trump tells Epstein at one point. At different moments, Trump is seen dancing with cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins.
As Mother Jones noted during the 2016 presidential election, Trump was known to pay particular attention to Epstein during his Florida pool parties. “He threw a party one night just because of Epstein,” former beauty pageant promoter George Houraney said of Trump. “He said, ‘The other guys aren’t coming, but I don’t care because Jeff’s coming.’”
Another thing referenced in the Morning Joe clip is the accusation that Epstein continued to have women brought to him for sex while he was on work release from jail.

Lawyer Brad Edwards said Epstein was allowed to have visitors while he was supposed to be working during the 13-month sentence.
“It was not for some business arrangement and it was for… improper sexual contact,” Edwards said, adding that the new accusers said they were under 21, though they may not have been minors.
“He just wasn’t in jail. He only slept there. He was in his office most of the day and what I can tell you he had visitors, female visitors,” Edwards said.
“All I can say is more than one person that visited him,” Edwards said, declining to provide more details because of ongoing litigation. “They believed they were going there for something other than a sexual purpose.
“Once there, he used his perfect master manipulation to turn the situation into something sexual,” Edwards said. “Not one of the individuals was a prostitute. These were all people who at the time that wanted something. They came over under false pretenses and he manipulated them and now his attorneys have labeled them prostitutes.”
He said that he has not been able to determine what actual work Epstein supposedly did while he was allowed to be away from jail.
So to be clear Donald Trump was essentially “besties” with Jeffrey Epstein for years while he was trafficking underage women for sex, and Jeffrey Epstein used the sweetheart deal that he got from Trump’s former Labor Secretary to continue preying on women when he was supposed to be serving time in jail.
Does that about sum it up?
