"I mean it’s one banana, Michael, what could it cost, 10 dollars?”

Wait, no. Not that one. Hold on, lemme find it.

"light treason"... no. "I blue myself". Shit, can't find it. It's gonna have to be someone more clever and more organized than I.

I don't know why, but I somehow always thought he wasn't interested in women.

I know enough of the world now to have almost lost the capacity of being much surprised by anything.

Ah, so that's why HW Bush made that joke....

[–] [email protected] 11 points 1 month ago (1 children)

What joke?

Thanks in advance

HW Bush frequently sexually assaulted women and would say "Do you know who my favorite stage magician is? David Cop-a-feel" when doing so.

This is the best summary I could come up with:

The celebrated American magician David Copperfield has been accused by 16 women of engaging in sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior, according to a Guardian US investigation.

Fallon Thornton, 38, told the Guardian that Copperfield squeezed her breast after calling her on stage during a January 2014 performance at MGM Grand casino-hotel.

She reported the allegation to MGM and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, records show, but Thornton felt her claim was never taken seriously.

The Guardian’s investigation highlighted common themes among the allegations: several women said Copperfield promised to help them with their careers in modeling or the entertainment industry and that he attempted to maintain contact with them and their parents.

Separately, Copperfield has faced scrutiny because of his association with Jeffrey Epstein, the indicted child sex trafficker who killed himself in prison in 2019.

The illusionist announced to fanfare in October 2023 that he was teaming up with Save the Children, the global charity, for an elaborate stunt scheduled for February 2024 that would make the moon “disappear”.

The original article contains 1,203 words, the summary contains 171 words. Saved 86%. I'm a bot and I'm open source!

...Jeffrey Epstein, the indicted child sex trafficker who killed himself in prison...

Friendly reminder that Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself.
