By the time this whole sad mess grinds to an end, that list will be pages long.

Hopefully Donald J Fuckwit will have his day(s) in court too. AFAIK no American president has done jail time before. It would be lovely poetic justice for Donnie to get locked up with a very large black cellmate.

It's not right to hope that a guy spends the rest of his life getting fucked by a cellmate.

It IS right to hope that a guy that broke the law gets prosecuted and punished according to the law.

For Trump, having to mingle with the folk he lied to will be enough. Think of it as him having to eat bad oysters.

Begs the question if he goes to the big house does he still get Secret Service Protection?

He might need it, in which case will they supply lube?

Would it be wrong to hope that Roger Stone is given due process, and ends up with a giant cellmate who flies into a violent sexual rage at the sight of Richard Nixon?  I might be a little bit wrong on that front....

There is a double standard, and Trump will never spend a day in jail, even if he deserves to. Jail time is for the help.  Most people would be happy just to see Trump frog-marched out of the WH.

Trump never made it into the "Best Americans" category.  He was always just a cheap suit from Queens.  

Many people are saying he is at risk from many directions.  Don't forget the harassment suits, the Foundation suits, the emolument suits, the Scottish suits, etc.  Unlike the ones he wears, none of those are cheap suits.  He's been a busy boy.

Yea, the attention is currently on Mueller and the SDNY prosecutor, but there are several other on-going investigations and lawsuits. And if Trump doesn't toe the line, he's got to be worried about being served Russian tea. It's enough to give a fat guy a Big Mac-fueled coronary.

You have to be rich to own an NFL franchise, not just in debt up to a large number.  

And it's a private club.  Who would actually invite a Donald Trump to join their club?

Just when you thought they couldn't be any more cunty, one of the best people chucks his wife under the bus

 

Quote

Congressman Duncan Hunter blames his corruption indictment on his wife.

Both Republican congressman Duncan Hunter and his wife Margaret Hunter are facing charges of misusing campaign funds. Appearing on Fox News on Thursday night, the lawmaker seemed to blame his spouse for his troubles.

“I’m saying when I went to Iraq in 2003, the first time, I gave her power of attorney and she handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got into Congress,” Hunter said. “Because I’m gone five days a week, I’m home for two.”

In the same interview, Hunter underscored the point. “And she was also the campaign manager,” the lawmaker claimed. “Whatever she did, that will be looked at too, I’m sure. But I didn’t do it. I didn’t spend any money illegally.”

It’s not clear that this line of argument will do him any good, since the indictment specifies that Hunter himself appointed his wife in the campaign manager’s position and kept her their even after he was warned about her spending. “Duncan Hunter installed Margaret Hunter as his paid Campaign Manager despite the protests of his Treasurer and with full knowledge of her long history of misuse of campaign funds, in part because as they discussed the Hunters ‘need[ed] the extra money’ that would come from her salary,” the indictment reads.

And we're seeing the old adage come to life: "There is no honor among thieves."

Trump is a crook, and leads like a mob boss.  He hires other crooks to do crooked things for him.  

Now those crooks are getting some heat doing what crooks do: Throwing the other crooks under the bus to save their own ass.

How exactly is being born in a country, educated in another, and then making one's fortune in a third a "quality or accomplishment" that makes someone suitable for ambassadorship? Seriously, I'd like to know what special attributes are endowed in a person's birth that remain after leaving said country before they start high school.

Quote

Yes, diplomats must be accredited by the receiving country. On occasion, a country will find another country’s choice to be so objectionable that accreditation will be refused.

Once accredited, a diplomat could be declared persona non grata and expelled by the receiving country. This may happen in cases of serious crime or espionage being committed by a diplomat.

 Yes, simply by designating the person persona not grata, but that would not be diplomatic. A appointing Justin Bieber as the Canadian Ambassador to the US in response would be.
