Yahoo News reports:
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera says President Donald Trump was “brave” to offer well wishes to accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell. And Rivera didn’t stop there, saying the pre-trial detention of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged procurer of underage girls is just “woke politics.”
In another surreal moment in Trump press conference history, the president was asked Tuesday by a New York Post reporter if Trump he thought Maxwell was “going to turn in powerful men?”
Responded Trump: “I don’t know. I haven’t really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach, and I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is.”
Geraldo is currently #3 on Twitter.
When asked @realDonaldTrump said he wished #GhislaineMaxwellArrested well. With media mob eager to see her lynched it was brave to weigh in. Fact: cases vs her are for crimes allegedly committed more than 25 years ago. She deserved bail & got solitary confinement: woke politics.

A person who was a sexual predator 25 years ago is still a sexual predator today, Geraldo.
Regardless, Trump didn’t have to wish her well and apparently only did so because he hung out with her a few times in Palm Beach… which is psychotic.

first they came for the child sex traffickers, and I did not speak out— but Geraldo did

See folks, this is what happens when you get canceled as many times as Geraldo did:
You say as many asinine things as you want, like defending a child sex trafficker because it happened so long ago so she should be free.
You forget what decency is, like this fucking asshole.
