One of the users on Twitter noted that
“Bill Gates says he’s not sure why he visited Epstein Island 36 times.”
Donald Trump Jr. responded:
“I’ve got an idea why.”
Bill Gates recently had held court during an online chat in which he invited Reddit users to “ask me anything.”He went on to ignore questions about his ties to the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Gates, the Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist, fielded questions during a Reddit “AMA” in which he opined on his favorite rock band (U2), the need to combat climate change, taxation of the wealthy, his ownership of US farmland and which television shows he enjoyed the most in 2022.
But he wouldn’t touch the hot-button question of his prior relationship with Epstein, the wealthy financier who hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting federal trial on sex trafficking charges in 2019.
“Why did you continue associating with Jeffrey Epstein after he was convicted of being a pedo?” a Redditor who goes by the handle “alwayshazthelinks” wrote to Gates.
“And against your then-wife’s advice and wishes?”
The reference was to Epstein’s prior conviction in 2008 when he admitted in a Florida court to procuring a child for prostitution and soliciting a prostitute.
