(FiveNation.com)- Last week, Elon Musk used his Twitter account to blast NBC for “basically saying Republicans are Nazis.” He hammered the network for burying the story about Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, killing a story about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults, and building Matt Lauer “his rape office.”
A Twitter user replied to Musk’s tweet, pointing out that the public has heard more about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars than Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial. The user, @RationalEtienne, added that the account that tweeted about Maxwell’s trial also got banned from Twitter just as it was gaining popularity.
Musk replied to @RationalEtienne asking where the Epstein client list was and suggesting at least one of those clients should “go down” as well.
Some snotty troll replied to Musk by posting a photo of Musk from a Vanity Fair party in 2014 where Ghislaine Maxwell appears in the background, suggesting that Musk should be the first client to go down.
Musk then pointed out that the photo was from the 2014 Vanity Fair party and Maxwell “photobombed” him, adding “but you know that already, don’t you?”
Someone else replied repeating almost word-for-word a 2020 tweet from Musk noting that the Tesla CEO doesn’t know Maxwell “at all” and she photobombed him “once at a Vanity Fair party in 2014.” The user said the more important question is why Vanity Fair invited Ghislaine Maxwell to the party “in the first place,” to which Musk replied, “that is exactly the question.”
After Maxwell was arrested in 2020, the photo of Musk at the 2014 Vanity Fair party began making the rounds online.
At the time, a Twitter user asked whether the two were friends, prompting Musk to explain, for the first time, that Maxwell photobombed him at the party, adding the “real question is why VF invited her in the first place.”
The Vanity Fair party took place six years after Epstein pleaded guilty to trafficking an underage girl and soliciting a prostitute, but 5 years before his arrest on federal charges.
