Getting mistaken for George Clooney? That’s an excellent factor. Actually being Clooney and getting mistaken for lifeless pedophile Jeffrey Epstein? That is a horrible factor.
The silver-haired actor’s charmed life took on a little bit of tarnish final week when social-media people with partisan agendas started posting photographs that presupposed to show Chris Wallace of Fox News on Epstein’s so-called Pedophile Island with its namesake youngster molester. The picture depicted a good-looking, affluent-looking, middle-aged man helping Wallace onto a ship. One publish on Facebook learn, “No marvel Chris Wallace is a staunch anti-Trumper. He’s been to Epstein Island.”
The implication was that the Fox newsman — who drew warmth after President Trump insisted that Wallace gave him unfair remedy throughout final week’s debate — was hanging out with Epstein. In reality, as famous by FactCheck.org, the serving to hand was being prolonged by Clooney in 2012 when Wallace visited the film star at his digs in elegant Lake Como, Italy. A spokesman for Wallace confirmed the fraudulent ID to The Post: “This was debunked final week.” Representatives for Clooney didn’t reply.
According to FactCheck, this form of soiled ruse will not be unusual. The web site has run tales about “related situations wherein social media posts have sought to discredit political figures by tying them to Epstein.” In reality, there was one which confirmed Trump kissing 11-year-old daughter Ivanka on the aspect of the top as a smiling Epstein appeared on. Veracity-wise there’s a main drawback: The initially harmless picture is doctored, with Epstein added in to make Trump look unsavory.
As for Wallace’s go to to Lake Como, in a 2012 video interview with Politico, he stated, “It was nice. It was every little thing you’ll think about it will be. Great meals, nice wine, nice discuss.”
That stated, he most likely might have lived with no shutterbug snapping pics close to the boat.
