GOP congressman: Trump’s comments on Ghislaine Maxwell were ‘unacceptably stupid’

“This is unacceptably stupid for a woman accused of the most morally depraved crime, @realDonaldTrump,” Roy wrote on Twitter. “She must be severely punished … and there must be justice for the girls she has abused. For ALL involved. ‘

Maxwell was arrested earlier this month on charges of transporting children for illegal sexual acts and lying during investigations into Epstein. She has been accused of encouraging young girls to get close to Epstein, make him pay for their outings, and ask about their family life. Maxwell has dismissed the allegations.

Although Roy is a right-wing ally of the President, he has sometimes been pronounce against some of Trump’s most inflammatory actions.

When Trump begged four Democratic congressmen of color to “go back” where they came from in a widely condemned racist attack, Roy wrote Twitter that Trump “falsely said that a US citizen, whether in Congress or not, has a” home “outside the US”

The Texas Republican wrote on Twitter in March 2019 he disagreed with Trump’s trash from the late Senator John McCain.
