PBS’s Judy Woodruff interviewed Bill Gates yesterday, and when it turned to the subject of Jeffrey Epstein, things got a bit uncomfortable for the Microsoft co-founder:
On Jeffrey Epstein, @BillGates tto @JudyWoodruff @newshour: "Those meetings were a mistake, they didn't result in what he purported (unding) and I cut them off." Lessons learned? "He's dead, so. In general you always have to be careful… I'm proud of the work of the foundation"

Gates looked incredibly uncomfortable during the exchange.
PBS asking Bill Gates about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein: “Is there a lesson for you, for anyone else looking at this?”
Bill Gates: “Well, he’s dead, so, uhhh, you know, in general you always have to be careful…”

You could tell that Gates would have rather been talking about anything but that, and the “well, he’s dead” remark was a heck of a way to cap it that particular subject during the interview.
That's some PR judo right there

Oh my goodness, watching this was truly cringe-worthy to the 10th power. Super creepy.
