In a series of devastating tweets at the expense of President Donald Trump and his recently arrested pal Jeffrey Epstein, the noted attorney and best-selling author Seth Abramson showed why he’s a master of wry humor.

You can tell Abramson’s tongue is firmly in cheek. Trump did run a modeling agency that exploited underage girls who worked illegally, according to The Watchdog Report.

Many of these girls were from other countries, and between 2004 and 2011 they were told by staff to falsify information on their visa applications or find other ways to subvert immigration laws. Indeed, Trump Model Management found sneaky ways to import these young women, most of whom were nothing if not financially insecure. And many of them had no chance of ever working in New York City.

On arrival, the girls found themselves in terrible accommodations, as the tweet below reveals.

Fortunately, the ongoing scrutiny caused Trump Model Management to shutter its doors in 2017.

And now I’m going to take a slight detour here to note that Trump was implicated in a $75,000 lawsuit against Epstein, who’s a registered sex offender. In this instance, the 13-year-old girl Abramson referred to in his tweet above alleged that Trump raped her.

Abramson is the author of numerous books and his most recent one, Proof of Collusion: How Trump Betrayed America is a detailed investigation of just how Trump, helped by Russian officials hijacked the 2016 presidential election.

And his tweets are downright hilarious but factual and pointed at the same time.

Indeed, Trump is pals with child pornographer George Nader and he really did endorse Roy Moore. What a guy! And Abramson couldn’t resist noting Trump’s friendship with Li “Cindy” Yang, owner of a Florida massage parlor who sold access to Trump and his family. Guests could indulge their dreams and spend time at Mar-a-Lago. For a price, of course. Which brings us to the fact that the FBI is investigating her and focusing on whether she illegally funneled money from China into Trump’s re-election campaign.

And yes, her spa is where Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots was arrested and charged with allegedly soliciting sex, The Daily Beast reports. Writer David Rothkopf notes:

“The spa allegedly was engaged in trafficking young women from China, turning them into sex slaves locked into horrendous lives of serial rape and squalor. While Cindy Yang sold the massage parlor in question, she continued to own others that were suspected of also doing a brisk business in sexual services.”

As for Epstein, Trump wasn’t the only one of his friends in high places, The New York Daily News reports. Former president Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew are also in his circle of friends. The Miami Herald’s Julie Brown, who chronicled Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking crimes told MSNBC:

“And the other interesting thing is that Trump had a modeling agency and Epstein also had a stake in a modeling agency, which they suspect he used to bring in underage girls from overseas,” she said. “There is a comment in one of the court files where Epstein is quoted as saying ‘I want to set up my modeling agency the same way Trump set up his modeling agency.’ I don’t know what that means, but it is curious that he was trying to do something similar to Trump.”

That’s what makes Abramson’s tweet below particularly clever. Quite obviously he’s a man who has pretty much seen everything and has developed a taste for black humor.

In fact, the Trump-Epstein friendship is so cozy that federal prosecutors are now scrambling to ensure a non-prosecution agreement the Florida billionaire secured a decade ago can’t be undone. Epstein secured that with the help of former Miami U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who’s now a member of the Trump administration, MarketWatch reports.

So it’s no wonder Abramson couldn’t resist firing off the tweet below.

Abramson, a graduate of Harvard Law School has worked as both a criminal defense attorney and a criminal investigator. He’s been around the block a few times, and he’s now a tenure-track professor of Communication Arts and Sciences at the University of New Hampshire. He very likely has an impressive resume. So it would seem he knows criminal-level bullsh*t when he sees it.
