    Default Donald Trump Jr. is Fredo?

    I had to laugh a bit, at this... before sobering up and realizing that the nickname may be apt

    The Daily Beast: “Since the campaign, a popular, behind-his-back nickname for Trump Jr. within among these advisers has been ‘Fredo,’ referring to Fredo Corleone, the insecure and weak failure of a son in The Godfatherseries who ends up causing major damage to the family.”

    “Over the past week, one senior White House official and a former top Trump campaign aide both independently and bluntly described the president’s son as an ‘idiot’ — one who played a role in the campaign and Trump’s political rise simply because he ‘shares the same DNA,’ the official noted.”
    "Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it."

    I could tell you what Bill Maher calls him and his brother, but I would get banned.

    Suffice to say I call them Gordon Gecko Jr. and Gordon Gecko III.

    One could tell DT Jr was a moron back in The Apprentice days, which we tuned in occasionally for laughs..

    I trust that Fredo Trump's narrative arc won't end same way as Fredo Corleone's.

    But you've got to admit, this present incident is colossally dim. Matched only by his public responses to it. Were he Russian himself, I suspect he and Fredo Corleone might have more in common.

    Except that the Orange Godfather has only started to build a "family". That might make him Vito, and Jr. is Michael. Which one is Santino?

    If someone is offered evidence of a crime it would be incumbent on them to follow thru on it and not bury their head in the sand to cover it up.

    If Donald is Vito and Donald Junior is Fredo then Ivanka must be Michael. Once the donald is gone Ivanka will make her move and settle all family business with one stroke. That'll be a sad day for don jr.

    Michael Flynn and Donald Trump leading the chant of the Republicans at the convention. That's different, huh?

    Just try to imagine what the Repugs would be saying and doing if Hillary had this mud on her shoes. Lock her up.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    Many of the Mueller crew have long histories of going after Mobsters. It's the only good news in this cluster**** brought on by the Don and his putrid family and "friends".
