Let's see...out on bail....commit some more felonies... naw, nothing wrong with that...!!

And bless his little head...er, uh, hands..!!   Trump feels it is so unfair!!   Doesn't even understand what was done, but that is as should be expected.

“Wow, what a tough sentence for Paul Manafort, who has represented Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other top political people and campaigns,"

More distancing:

Trump says Michael Cohen isn't his personal lawyer anymore

https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-today-06-15-18/index.html

President Trump told reporters that Michael Cohen is no longer his personal lawyer.

"I haven't spoken to Michael in a long time," Trump said. "But I always liked Michael. And he's a good person."

Cohen has not been charged with a crime, but the FBI raid of his home, hotel room and office in early April revealed that prosecutors had zeroed in on his personal financial dealings, including the payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels on Trump's behalf before the election.

This week, Rudy Giuliani, one of President Trump's lawyers in the Russia investigation, said Cohen is not cutting a deal with federal prosecutors.

Manafort to jail for witness tampering.

The best people.

He's distancing himself:

"Manafort has nothing to do with our campaign," Trump said. "But I tell you, I feel a little badly about it. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago. Paul Manafort worked for me for a very short period of time."

This is getting completely lost in the news cycle and in any other presidency would be an absolutely earth shattering scandal.


The Trump Foundation has millions of dollars of misspent funds, self dealing, self enrichment and settlement of personal lawsuits with foundation funds that came from 3rd parties. He and his kids are in violation of state and federal laws including tax laws. The AG is asking for $2.8 million and a 10 year ban on Trump working on charity boards. The findings have also been sent to the IRS for possible federal criminal prosecution.

A bombshell civil lawsuit filed Thursday — President Trump’s 72nd birthday — accuses the commander-in-chief and his three oldest children of operating a bogus namesake charity “in persistent violation” of federal and state laws for more than a decade.

The misdeeds included $2.8 million spent to promote Trump’s presidential campaign, along with supposed charitable funds used instead to “pay off the legal obligations of entities (Trump) controlled, to promote Trump hotels, (and) to purchase personal items,” the lawsuit charged.

The suit, filed by state Attorney General Barbara Underwood in Manhattan Supreme Court, alleged the Donald J. Trump Foundation funneled its cash into Trump’s personal dealings rather than assisting those less fortunate as part of its “pattern of illegal conduct.”

The state wants restitution for the $2.8 million in misspent money along with additional penalties, including a 10-year ban on Trump running a not-for-profit organization.

“As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” Underwood said. “This is not how private foundations should function, and my office intends to hold the foundation and its directors accountable for its misuse of charitable assets.”

The court filing specifically accused Trump, along with daughter Ivanka and sons Donald Jr. and Eric, of “improper and extensive political activity, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions, and failure to follow basic fiduciary obligations.”

Underwood also notified the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission about possible federal law-breaking by the Trumps that falls into their bailiwick.

Even beyond the whole fascist "joke", he should never refer to Americans as "my people", we aren't his possession. Jackass.

No, this is classic bully / predator behavior.   I'm serious.   People like that, like bullies, racists, sexual predators, etc, say things like that all the time to push the edges and see what they can get away with.  Like the guy who tells a racist joke.  If you don't push back, he tells another one.  The sexual predator uses innuendos all the time, to see how the target responds.  If they accept the behavior it only gets worse.  But if called on it, they say "Oh, it was just a joke!".

Trump does this stuff all the time, and on all kinds of topics. It's in his very nature as person.  If anyone thinks for one second that Trump would not absolutely love to be a dictator, they are delusional.   He won't be, and I am very secure in all our checks and balances, but that is who the man is.

"Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head," Mr. Trump told Fox News' Steve Doocy on the White House lawn Friday. "Don't let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."

Pressed by a reporter about those remarks moments later, Mr. Trump said he was "kidding."

"I'm kidding, you don't understand sarcasm," the president said.
