Trump Lumps Himself in with Al Capone (again!)
The Donald has once again provided his potential opponents with some free material for their upcoming campaign ads. Trump seems to be his own worst enemy. Elon Musk has already re-instated Trump's twitter account, so stay tuned. I hope The Donald starts tweeting again! Trump can alienate millions of voters by exercising his "Freedumb of speech" on Twitter.
Yes, The Donald has done it to HIMSELF again. Trump lumped himself in with one of the most notorious organized crime figures in the history of the United States- Al Capone!
Here's an interesting little sidebar: Al Capone once hosted a "gangster cabinet meeting". All of Capone's Capos were in attendance seated around a large round banquet table. Capone got out of his seat and circled the table walking behind each man while gesturing with a baseball bat. Capone was philosophizing about individual achievements but pointing out that without team work the individual can't win. It was actually an analogy about his "family". Capone was pissed because an individual was skimming. When he got behind the suspected skimmer, he swung the Louisville Slugger and bashed in the head of that individual. Capone splattered the guy's brains on the banquet table. Trump once called Capone, " The late great gangster , Alphonse Capone!"
Trump lumps himself in with Al Capone (yes, again)
Donald Trump is well aware of the fact that he’s facing serious legal troubles , including possible indictments. Not surprisingly, this has led the former president to hire a small army of defense attorneys.
This week, the Republican used his social media platform to complain about all of this in a curious way .
“Because of the Weaponization, Targeting, and Unprecedented Harassment, I believe that I have more lawyers working for me on this Corrupt Law Enforcement induced Bull…. than any human being in the history of our Country, including even the late great gangster , Alphonse Capone! This is all being done for POLITICAL REASONS in that I am leading everybody, Republicans & Democrats, by big numbers in the Polls. The Disinformation Specialists are at it again, full time. The Fake News is their TOOL!”
Obviously, much of this is nonsense, and there’s no reason to believe the criminal investigations Trump is facing are the result of a corrupted process. But what stood out for me was the fact that the former president lumped himself in with Al Capone.
What’s more, this wasn’t the first time.
About a year ago, in an online statement that’s since been deleted, Trump also whined about his legal difficulties by complaining, “Never before has this happened to another President, and it is an absolute violation of my civil rights.... I’ve been investigated by the Democrats more than Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Al Capone, combined.”
At face value, it’s obviously unfortunate to see the former president present himself to the public as some kind of victim, solely because a variety of prosecutors in multiple jurisdictions are taking a closer look at his alleged wrongdoing.
But revisiting our coverage from last year, it’s still Trump’s comparison that stands out: The Republican apparently thought it’d be a good idea to issue a written statement in which he lumped himself in with a murderer, a notorious bank robber, and one of the most powerful organized crime figures in American history.
Ten months later, he still thinks it’s a good idea to lump himself in with Capone.
It’s one thing when the former president’s critics equate his alleged misconduct with infamous criminals; it’s something else when Trump does this to himself .
I want to thank The Donald for running for president again. It will be amusing watching him lose again. I'm sure Trump will once again supply us with lots of opportunities to mock and ridicule him. And in the meantime, Trump will make lots of lawyers rich (assuming they require a large retainer up front so they'll actually get paid). Along with his own frivolous lawsuits, Trump is already facing civil trials, and criminal trials are right around the corner. Trump has already taken the 5th over 400 times in the civil case against his company. By the time the legal dust settles, he will probably have the record for the most times anyone has ever taken the 5th.
Buy corn futures because popcorn consumption will probably double between now and the election. I hope Trump makes Don Jr. a big part of his campaign. Don Jr. has a problem with "foot in mouth disease." He is almost as amusing as his daddy. And don't forget Eric Trump (although his daddy Trump has). Eric Trump is as stupid as his real father, Gary Busey.
What, too soon? Why am I insulting Eric's dead mother? Two things:
Thing 1 - Ivana was married to Donald Trump. So fucking anyone else , like Gary Busey, would be an upgrade. Therefore, my meme is actually a compliment .
Thing 2 - I am not "insulting dead Ivana". I'm mocking Eric Trump (who is semi-alive).
Thing 2.1 - No dead people have ever complained about being insulted.
I wonder how trumpski got his brain twisted...
Just like Capone - tertiary syphilis?
Trump's formal diagnosis of syphilis of the brain hasn't been made yet.
Butt that could help explain Trump's cray-cray.
Just like Capone - tertiary syphilis
I agree with al's 1.1.2 . Capone became a drooling blathering mess at the end of his life. trump is ranting 'poor me' victim. I don't mean gaffes. I mean the absolute lunacy of jumbled thoughts. Considering he bareback bounced with a porn star and buddied with Epstein, a sexually transmitted disease wouldn't surprise anyone. Although doubtful Stormy passed anything on. The porn industry has some pretty stringent rules regarding sexual safety.
Poor sad sack trump is not comparable to Capone in another regard. Capone gussied up his digs. Doubtful federal prison will allow trump to gild his toilet with gold leaf.
Capone's jail cell:
Although doubtful Stormy passed anything on. The porn industry has some pretty stringent rules regarding sexual safety.
When the story broke, about Trump "raw dogging Stormy Daniels" I created this meme:
Well he's modeled himself after them
he revels in it. he's weaponized it.
Exactly. So true.
trump is adept at capo-speak. You know, the seemingly innocuous "I wouldn't mind seeing that guy dead" type of speech. "Stand back and stand by." But there is one glaring difference between trump and Capone. Capone actually had a heart at times.
In early November 1930, more than 75,000 jobless Chicagoans lined up to register their names. Nearly a third required immediate relief. “The Madison Street hobo type was conspicuously absent from these lines of men,” reported the Chicago Tribune , which noted that many of the unemployed were well-dressed.
A week later the Chicago Tribune reported the surprising news that the mysterious benefactor who had recently rented out a storefront and opened a soup kitchen at 935 South State Street was none other than the city’s king of booze, beer and vice. Capone’s soup kitchen served breakfast, lunch and dinner to an average of 2,200 Chicagoans every day.“He couldn’t stand it to see those poor devils starving, and nobody else seemed to be doing much, so the big boy decided to do it himself,” a Capone associate told a Chicago newspaper. Inside the soup kitchen, smiling women in white aprons served up coffee and sweet rolls for breakfast, soup and bread for lunch and soup, coffee and bread for dinner. No second helpings were denied. No questions were asked, and no one was asked to prove their need.
I don't seem to remember a lot of dons retiring and living happily ever after...

Donald Trump, like Al Capone, is a fucking tax cheat.
Capone apparently reveled in attention, such as the cheers from spectators when he appeared at ball games. He made donations to various charities and was viewed by many as a "modern-day Robin Hood ".  However, the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre , in which seven gang rivals were murdered in broad daylight, damaged the public image of Chicago and Capone, leading influential citizens to demand government action and newspapers to dub Capone " Public Enemy No.1".
The federal authorities became intent on jailing Capone and charged him with 22 counts of tax evasion . He was convicted of five counts in 1931. During a highly publicized case, the judge admitted as evidence Capone's admissions of his income and unpaid taxes, made during prior (and ultimately abortive) negotiations to pay the government taxes he owed. He was convicted and sentenced to 11 years in federal prison . After conviction, he replaced his defense team with experts in tax law, and his grounds for appeal were strengthened by a Supreme Court ruling, but his appeal ultimately failed. Capone showed signs of neurosyphilis early in his sentence and became increasingly debilitated before being released after almost eight years of incarceration. On January 25, 1947, he died of cardiac arrest after a stroke.
At Alcatraz, Capone's decline became increasingly evident, as neurosyphilis progressively eroded his mental faculties; his formal diagnosis of syphilis of the brain was made in February 1938.  He spent the last year of his Alcatraz sentence in the hospital section, confused and disoriented.
