Strange day yesterday in the Trump presser. 142,000 Americans have died–there’s still no plan for the #TrumpVirus. Trump wishes Ghislaine Maxwell well. Trump has yet to condemn Russia for bounties on US troops.
I wish SDNY well
(in the case of Ghislaine Maxwell)

Ghislaine Maxwell has been accused of child sex trafficking in connection with her late friend Jeffrey Epstein, a financier and convicted sex offender. The charges against her include recruiting and grooming girls as young as 14 into a circle of sexual abuse with possible connections to powerful men around the world.
President Donald Trump wishes her well.
Speaking during a White House news briefing on the coronavirus, Trump on Tuesday managed to keep on topic for much of his appearance — a contrast to his earlier news briefings that often devolved into quasi-campaign rallies. But he left the topic of the pandemic once to answer a question about Maxwell’s case.
