Now logic, as well as Young’s subsequent explanations, suggest that he was referring to the foolishness of doing such an interview, rather than any illegal activities carried out by the prince’s child-trafficking former – now late – friend, Jeffrey Epstein. But his tweet very much looked like a horrible self-own, which is almost his stock in trade.
