I don’t see how his guests wouldn’t know that,” Stratton said.Prince Andrew’s Daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, Are ‘Deeply Distressed,’ but Standing by HimStratton said Andrew came to stay at the Zorro Ranch on his own, and was put up in a self-contained three-bedroom guest property on the estate. Epstein was not there, but he arranged for Andrew to be accompanied by the young medic, according to the former housekeeper.Stratton said: “At the time, Jeffrey had this, she supposedly was a neurosurgeon, quite young, beautiful, young and brilliant, and she stayed in the home with him... At one point we had all these different teas and you could pick the teas that you wanted and she asked me to find one that would make Andrew more horny.”“I’m guessing she understood her job was to entertain him because I guess, the fear, I don’t know; the fear would be that Andrew would say, ‘No I didn’t really find her that attractive.’ ... He would tell Jeffrey that and then she would be on the ropes.”“I’m guessing that, another theory is, that Jeffrey probably had her on retainer and she knew what her job would be, should be, to make these people happy... Sex was all they thought about. I mean, I know for sure that Jeffrey would ideally like three massages a day.”Stratton said she asked Andrew what he would like for breakfast, and the royal said he wanted to try and cook some bacon for himself.“I offered to come up and fix his breakfast and he said, ‘No I want to try.’ ... When I got up there later to tidy up, you could smell burnt bacon and he was like, ‘I didn't do so well.’ ... He had a croissant and green tea or something. I remember him trying to cook his own breakfast. Isn’t that cute? He couldn’t even fry bacon.”Prince Andrew was this week ordered to step down from royal life by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in the aftermath of a disastrous interview he gave to the BBC about his friendship with Epstein.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Donald Trump gave a wild new interview to Fox and Friends on Friday morning, attacking the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry, spreading debunked conspiracy theories and complaining that ex-Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch never hung his portrait in the American embassy in Kiev.Senior members of Trump’s administration met with Republican senators at the White House on Thursday to discuss how to handle the looming prospect of a Senate trial after a week of devastating testimony before Congress, the last of which saw Dr Fiona Hill, formerly of the National Security Council, accusing the president of pursuing a “fictional narrative”.

My wife is 61 and earns $50,000; I’m 65 and earn $400,000 - should she take Social Security next year?
My question is should my wife take her Social Security benefits next year and then get 50% of mine added to hers when I retire? As with many Social Security questions I get, experts say the answer is likely this: wait. Your wife can indeed start collecting Social Security benefits at 62 based on her own work record (as long as she's worked for at least 10 years), and she can claim spousal benefits when you begin collecting your Social Security benefits.
