Manafort, Cohen, et al., prove Donald Trump is actually a huge fan of corruption

We all know that Trump’s big defense for his latest open corruption — i.e., that he’s actually trying to stop corruption — is laughable on its face.

I mean, it’s a little like Carrot Top criticizing Gallagher for filling a weary world with bad prop comedy.

But it’s worth reflecting over just how risible it is.

And the claim can be shut down — as you’ll soon see — with however many words are in a tweet these days. (More than 140, right? Still, not that many.)

First, the comedy stylings of Donald John Trump:

And then this, from writer, prolific tweeterer, and not-Trump-fan Stuart Stevens:

Uh huh.

And to refresh your battered memory, here’s the list:

  • Paul Manafort
  • Rick Gates
  • Michael Flynn
  • Michael Cohen

Poor, unlucky Donald Trump. So many criminals seek him out just to victimize him and smear his prodigious shit-smear of a name.

And you can guarantee if Barack Obama’s or Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager had been convicted of a felon, Fox News would have spun off a new cable channel just to cover it.

But now? The story is Donald Trump really hates corruption.

Yeah, try again.

tRump is often found to be fighting evil. Like trying to fire Mueller, firing the head of the FBI & firing Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the FBI. Then he revokes the security clearences of former Director of the CIA John Brennan. Then to only bolster his crime fighting skills, he pardons former Sheriff Joe Apiro, convicted or criminal contempt.
