August 12-13, 2020 -- NBC Universal doesn't want anyone to see skit of Trump buying two young children             

New York 
 

Donald Trump and his litigious
murder of attorneys apparently are embarrassed about a comedy skit Trump made about him buying two young children sitting in the back seat of a car parked in front of one of his properties in Manhattan. When the parking valet informs Trump that he will have to wait until the mother of the children moves her car in order to park Trump's car, Trump announces he will buy the mother's car, children included.

NBC Universal prevailed upon YouTube to take down the Trump clip the editor included in a video to illustrate Trump's lackadaisical attitude toward "buying," i.e., the sex trafficking, of children. NBC Universal cited copyright violations and stated that Bill Cosby, currently serving a prison term after his conviction on rape charges, has a copyright claim to the video clip. Trump's involvement in sexually abusing one sex-trafficked girl, Maria Doe, at an orgy with Jeffrey Epstein in the Les Wexner townhouse in Manhattan in 1994 is but one of many incidents regarding Trump and trafficked underage children.

Trump's nomination of former U.S. Attorney for South Florida, Alex Acosta as Secretary of Labor and the point person in the Cabinet having oversight of counter-sex trafficking laws was but one sordid example of Trump's protection of traffickers. Acosta was also the U.S. Attorney who negotiated Epstein's sweetheart plea deal in 2007 that kept Epstein out of federal or state prison after he was formally charged with having sex with minors in Palm Beach County, Florida. More recently, Trump twice sent his televised well wishes to Epstein's partner-in-crime, Ghislaine Maxwell, who is in the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center awaiting trial next year on charges of international sex trafficking of minors.

NBC Universal is owned by Comcast, the same corporation that owns MS-NBC. Comcast, which is headquartered in Philadelphia, is owned by the politically-influential Roberts family. The current chairman and CEO of Comcast is Brian Roberts. Comcast apparently believes that NBC Universal's copyright claim on a Trump video clip showing him making a joke of sex trafficking of children is legitimate. WMR believes that the Trump video clip falls under the fair use provisions of the

Copyright Act of 1976. There is a demonstrable public interest in the wider distribution of the short video clip, which is obviously excerpted from a larger body of work. The American people have a right to know that the president of the United States is on video treating the trafficking of children as some sort of a joke. It is not.

The video clip can be seen here (and the pay wall has been dropped in accordance with our reliance on the fair use clause).
