“Give me freedom or give me death!”

Not often you find a crook so enamored of his own rhetoric

Former president Donald Trump launched a Thanksgiving rant on social media and lashed out at one of the prosecutors investigating allegations of misconduct, including tax fraud.

“The Manhattan DA Case should never have been brought,” the 45th president posted on Truth Social on Thursday, adding that it was a “total witch hunt”…

In another post, Mr Trump said: “Give me freedom or give me death.”…

He lamented that the investigation into his actions was a “rigged scam”. “The ‘Justice’ Department and FBI are CORRUPT…,” he said.

You might think his “expertise” in things corrupt might at least evoke a blush.

    “Former President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday night had dinner with Nick Fuentes, an outspoken antisemite and racist who is one of the country’s most prominent young white supremacists, at Mr. Trump’s private club in Florida, advisers to Mr. Trump conceded on Friday.
    Also at the dinner was the performer Kanye West, who has also been denounced for making antisemitic statements. Mr. West traveled to meet with Mr. Trump at the club, Mar-a-Lago, and brought Mr. Fuentes along, the advisers said.
    The fourth attendee at the four-person dinner, Karen Giorno — a veteran political operative who worked on Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign as his state director in Florida — also confirmed that Mr. Fuentes was there. Attempts to reach Mr. Fuentes through an intermediary on Friday were unsuccessful.
    In recent years, Mr. Fuentes, 24, has developed a high profile on the far right and forged ties with such Republican lawmakers as Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona, largely through his leadership of an annual white-supremacist event called the America First Political Action Conference.
    A Holocaust denier and unabashed racist, Mr. Fuentes openly uses hateful language on his podcast, in recent weeks calling for the military to be sent into Black neighborhoods and demanding that Jews leave the country.
    It is unclear how much Mr. Trump knew of Mr. Fuentes’s well-documented bigotry and extremism before their dinner.” (NYT) https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/25/us/politics/trump-nick-fuentes-dinner.html

      The Wall Street Journal editorial board lambasted former President Trump after his dinner with white supremacist Nick Fuentes and Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West. https://thehill.com/homenews/media/3752548-wall-street-journal-editors-on-dinner-with-nick-fuentes-trump-isnt-going-to-change/
      “Mr. Trump isn’t going to change, and the next two years will inevitably feature many more such damaging episodes,” the editorial board wrote on Sunday. “Republicans who continue to go along for the ride with Mr. Trump are teeing themselves up for disaster in 2024.”
      “Worse is that Mr. Trump hasn’t admitted his mistake in hosting the men or distanced himself from the odious views of Mr. Fuentes,” the Journal’s editorial board wrote.
      “Instead Mr. Trump portrays himself as an innocent who was taken advantage of by Mr. West,” the piece continued. “This is also all-too-typical of Mr. Trump’s behavior as President. He usually ducked responsibility and never did manage to denounce the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, or others who have resorted to divisive racial politics, or even violence as on Jan. 6, 2021.”
      “Mr. Trump’s failure to vet visitors is an example of his usual lack of organization and discipline, especially given that Mr. West has also been spreading anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” the Journal’s editors wrote.
      The editorial is the latest from a Rupert Murdoch-owned outlet to speak out against the former president.
