The former president who will forever be remembered for sex acts in the Oval Office with a much younger woman showed up – 21 times — in the contact directory for a Palm Beach County billionaire accused of running a sex ring for the rich and famous specializing in under-age girls.
Bill Clinton’s information was revealed as part of a lawsuit against billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, a now 30-year-old woman who claimed Epstein pimped her out as a “sex slave” to Prince Andrew of the British royal family, according to the New York Post.
According to the Post, Clinton and Epstein shared a fairly close relationship at the time the lawsuit alleges the woman was acting as a teen prostitute, including Clinton being a frequent guest on Epstein’s private jet, the paper reported. However, Clinton cut contact with Eptstein after 2005, when Epstein was arrested for receiving an “erotic massage” from a minor.
He pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for prostitution and served 13 months in federal prison.
To be fair, word that a billionaire would have the former president’s phone number isn’t exactly earth shaking. Whatever other qualities they have, the Clintons have been grifters sponging off the super-rich since they’ve been in public life.
And news that a billionaire buddy of Clinton is really a pimp for under-age girls isn’t exactly a shocker either. (Bet Epstein’s cigar selection on that private jet was top notch.)
But that the former president has 21 phone numbers — and this billionaire pimp knew them all — had the Twitter world chuckling with speculation about what Clinton was doing with them.
@lachlan 21!?? B Clinton using burners for all his broads. God damn professional.

Not all the commentary was so good-natured.

@RBPundit Selling underaged girls into sex slavery isn’t something the Feminists protest. Now if he wears a sexist SHIRT, then it’ll be ON!

But the general feeling seems to be resignation. The New York Times probably already has “lovable rogue” in the lede of Clinton’s obituary. Even if his wife does run for president in two years, it’s hard to believe any scandal involving the former president will be taken too seriously.
@RBPundit Let he who has not been a guest on a private island with teenage sex slaves and Prince Andrew cast the first stone. @Matthops82
