After the news came in that former campaign manager Paul Manafort turned himself in to the FBI (he was perp walked and it was beautiful, by the way), it was revealed that he is facing 12 counts including conspiracy against the United States. Richard Gates was also charged. Following that, news broke that former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to making false statements to federal agents about contacts with foreign nationals. Naturally, the news sent Donald Trump to his Twitter account to lash out ‘Crooked Hillary’ and Democrats, but you know who did not have to turn herself in to the feds today? Hillary Clinton, that’s who.
There’s a sucker born every minute and you can identify them because these individuals wear red MAGA hats and Eric Trump knows this.
The news is being widely reported, unless you watch Fox because that network has more important breaking news to cover: cheeseburger emojis. Seriously.
Eric Trump quickly sent out a fundraising email following the news of the arrests with the title, “Still Standing.”
“There’s a new opposition against my father and this Administration every day,” Eric Trump scribbled. “But as a loyal supporter, I know you know the truth.”
“Please make a contribution of just $1 to help us crush our goal this month,” the email read.
“My father has spoken out time and time again against those who have tried to bring this country down and will always do so to protect hardworking Americans whose values have been forgotten by Washington,” he continued.

It’s likely that special counsel Robert Mueller will try to get Manafort and Gates to flip on Trump. From the looks of things, Papadopoulos has already cooperated with the feds.
In the Papadopolous plea agreement: “The Government agrees to bring to the Court’s attention at sentencing the defendant’s efforts to cooperate with the Government…”

But go on, Trump supporters, donate your money to Donald’s swamp. It’s no skin off our backs if you’re played for suckers.
