Mixed martial artist Joel Bauman created a stir during his walkout at Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA, wearing a politically charged t-shirt that questioned the timing of Donald Trump’s indictment compared to Jeffrey Epstein’s client list.
In a recent bout in Biloxi, Mississippi, the 32-year-old athlete faced Curtis Millender, ultimately losing via a split decision. However, it was Bauman’s entrance that drew attention as he sported gold shorts paired with a black t-shirt boldly stating, ‘Trump was indicted before anyone on Epstein’s client list.’
The provocative statement alludes to the legal complexities surrounding both Donald Trump and the late Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted low life who died in a New York prison in 2021 while awaiting trial.
Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend, is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for her role in assisting the disgraced financier’s scheme. Meanwhile, Trump is entangled in various legal battles, including a civil fraud trial in New York and multiple criminal indictments related to the 2020 presidential election, handling classified documents, and accusations of false accounting involving hush money.
This is not the first time Bauman has used his platform to make bold statements. Previously, he expressed his mission to “eradicate childhood malnutrition from the planet.” In another instance, he took on Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg during a cage interview, criticizing Instagram’s algorithms for allegedly promoting a pe**phile network.
He also had a random moment calling out Jimmy Kimmel while wearing a harness for a similar thing.
