It’s not a secret that Bill Gates was friends with Jeffrey Epstein.
Though Gates obviously doesn’t like talking about that friendship anymore, it’s long been known, and, in fact, was even a key reason for his highly publicized divorce. Vanity Fair reported on that, saying:
Melinda French Gates said there were a number of factors that led to her decision to divorce her husband of 27-years Bill Gates, including his work with the late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
The philanthropist addressed their divorce publicly for the first time in a new interview with Gayle King that aired on CBS This Morning on Thursday, explaining that it was “not one thing but many things” that led to the demise of their marriage. “I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, no. I made that clear to him,” she explained, adding that she met with the convicted sex trafficker “exactly one time” because she “wanted to see who this man was.” She continued, “I regretted it the second I walked in the door. He was abhorrent. He was evil personified. My heart breaks for these women.” In a statement to CBS, Bill said that “Meeting with Epstein was a mistake that I regret deeply. It was a substantial error in judgment.”
Bill, however, must have either not known or not cared that Epstein was “evil personified,” as the two men met multiple times even though Epstein had, by that point, already been convicted of sex crimes.
But still Bill met with him multiple times! At the very least that shows a serious lapse in judgment. At the most, it shows something seriously concerning about Bill Gates…
So, all that’s to say that there’s a reason Bill’s relationship with Epstein keeps coming up: Epstein was a horrible person, had been convicted of sex crimes, but Bill still met up with him.
As such, you’d think he’d have a stock answer ready to go when the relationship gets brought up. Surely he could get someone to write a paragraph about how contrite he is, or something.
But no, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Or, if it is true, he did a bad enough job remembering it that he couldn’t use it during a recent interview.
When asked about the relationship, he didn’t have something ready to go, or at least didn’t appear to. Rather, he awkwardly and nervously squirmed while trying and failing to as the interviewer asked questions he should have been ready to answer.

Louder with Crowder, making fun of Bill’s response, said:
Look, guys, he was trying to get some of that sweet, sweet child sex trafficker money for one of his philanthropic endeavors. You can’t fault him for that, right. So, what if he knew he was a pervert and gave his wife the heebie-jeebies. He was cozying up to the man for his money. There’s nothing wrong with that.
