This past October, notorious Boston mobster James 'Whitey' Bulger was bludgeoned to death in a West Virginia prison. But before that, he spent years writing letters from that prison in which he expressed his undying adoration for one Donald J. Trump. Also, despite the many failed attempts by the conservative media to link Robert Mueller to Bulger last year, Bulger apparently hated Mueller and was very angry that he was not being nice enough to poor Donald Trump.

His penpal and the recipient of 75 missives over the last five years was one Janet Ulhar, a Cape Cod nurse who believed he was guilty, but was also "troubled" by the fact that much of the testimony he was convicted on came from other mobsters who had cut deals with the prosecution. Kind of like the deals Bulger cut himself when he was dishing out info about the Patriarca Crime Family to the FBI back in the day.

Janet wrote to him to express her "skepticism" over the way Bulger had been treated by prosecutors, which is of course a very normal thing for a normal person who is not a serial killer groupie to do.

Via NBC News:

In several handwritten letters shared with NBC News, Bulger expressed gushing praise for Trump, offering rave reviews of the president's foreign policy and combative relationship with the media.

"Trump is tough and fights back instead of bowing down to pressure — and caving in to press!" Bulger wrote in August 2018. "U.S. agrees with him press attacking and his reaction increases his popularity — He has my vote so far."

"History may show Trump was the man of the hour," Bulger wrote in a different letter earlier that month. "Feel China respects him and hesitant to try to bully him."
The NBC news report about the letters claims that his political views had previously "largely gone unknown. Until now."

Really? Really? Because dude was literally firebombing elementary schools back in the '70s to protest bussing and desegregation, so I think it's probably fair to say he was at least a tad outspoken about his political views. Just a little bit!

The legendary gangster, who was beaten to death inside a West Virginia prison cell last fall, was an ardent Trump supporter and fan of conservative media figures such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, according to the letters shared with NBC News.

ulger also participated in LSD experiments while he was imprisoned in Alcatraz back in the day, and had been repeatedly subjected to solitary confinement, so it does not actually feel all that surprising that this is where his tastes lied. And again, he firebombed an elementary school because he didn't like black students going there. He also threw a Molotov cocktail at JFK's birthplace because he was mad at Ted Kennedy, again, over desegregation. Not only was he not all there, he was also, as my mom put it "An asshole from whatever way you look at him."

So no, not totally surprising that he said shit like this, either:

The missive goes on to reference the allegations that Trump paid off two women with whom he had extramarital affairs. The aging gangster wrote that he believed Trump was a changed man and would never, for instance, engage in a romantic encounter with an intern in the Oval Office.

"My bet is he's happy with present wife and settled down," Bulger says in the letter. "No way would he wind up in Oval Office with a Monica Lewinsky — That was a scandal! Same media that attacks Trump would cover up for Bill Clinton."

Bulger also railed against former special counsel Robert Mueller. An assistant U.S. attorney in Boston in the 1980s, Mueller went on to lead the FBI at a time when it was grappling with a sensational scandal involving agents protecting mob leaders like Bulger.

"Sorry to hear Trump is being boxed in by so many," Bulger wrote last August.

"Trump is experiencing what Mueller and company can orchestrate," Bulger said in a different letter from September. "[Mueller] should observe biblical saying - 'Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.'"
Although one would think that Bulger, of all people, would know that it is kind of the job of a prosecutor to "cast stones" regardless of whatever their own sins are. But again, he was not all there.

Trump has yet to respond to the news of the letters, so I guess now would be the time to place your bets on whether he gets a posthumous pardon for having killed all those people.

"Kind of like the deals Bulger cut himself when he was dishing out info about the Patriarca Crime Family to the FBI back in the day."

Bulger knew little about the local Boston Mafia. He got credit (false credit- info came from other informers) via his FBI handler and long time friend, Agent John Connolly. Both grew up in the South Boston projects. Connolly did anything to put the Mafia guys in jail, making them the priority. As the Mafia guys went to jail, Connolly granted Bulger their territories & businesses. Connolly tipped Bulger off to State police investigations and any informer who was ratting out Bulger. Bulger killed the informers and became the crime lord of Boston. He went from nothing to crime king all thanks to Connolly. Who Bulger admired or hated means nothing. He was a murderer who finally, at long last, got what he deserved.

Any proof that Trump ever responded to any of Bulger's missives? Didn't think so.

TDDS seek help, it is getting out of hand.

The hell it is.

Trump has no freaking control over what other people do, and you simply wish to make it look like Trump is somehow connected to Bulger because Bulger likes Trump.

That is an idiotic thing to post. It is like blaming the Dodgers for some crime I may have committed because I am a fan of theirs.

Texan, you're just not a good "debater" or all that good at expressing yourself. 

The article does not claim that Trump is "responsible" for anything Whitey Bulger did, so why do you make the comment "It is like blaming the Dodgers for some crime I may have committed " ?

As JBB noted in his comment, what the article points out is that a lifelong criminal and murderer seems to admire Donald Trump.  No doubt Bulger spent most if not all of his adult life lying and thieving, so it is interesting to see what type of politician he admires. 

If you dont want to agree with the seed, fine. No one will force you to. 

By the way, Wonkette is mainly a sarcastic political commentary site. It is not straight news. 

Whether or not Trump replied to Bulger is immaterial to this article. It isnt about interaction, it is about the fact that a sociopathic criminal admires Donald Trump.

Please don't act like you aren't trying to infer something bad about Trump because of who may or may not like him.

Associating a dead criminals name and Trumps name together is truly the bottom of the barrel. The left is falling apart and evidenced by this type of TDS comment.

Pfffft.

Big deal, a career mobster in prison thought a lot of trump. Birds of a feather, he would have cheered  if trump shot someone in the street outside of the WH, that's how a boss should act. I can see where Mueller would be on his SL too, Bulger has had some baaadddd experiences with prosecutors.

He had trump's number, just butter trump enough and he will spring you out of prison. Well worth a shot, so to speak. Maybe Bulger thought trump might put him on the payroll to take care of minor inconvenient people.

I imagine Bulger thought he had "mobster" creds and should run the prison. I further speculate that some of the other prisoners didn't agree.

What a shame.

Knew a few KC mobsters back in the day. Kept them at arms length. Scary folk.
