The Lyin’, The Witch Hunt, and the Wardrobe: Day 3

“I hear Curaçao is nice.”

[Click here for Day One and Day Two recaps.]

All you need to know about the Wardrobe portion of our title is here, or as I like to think of it, expensive bad taste–meets–petting zoo.

Ostrich-skin Bomber Jacket

If an ostrich jacket could talk, it would squawk, “TAX FRAUD!!1!

…and less you think that a tacky $15K Amero ostrich-skin bomber jacket is Manafort’s only Crime du Fashion, I present the $18K Amero python-skin bomber jacket, and assorted other fashion misdemeanors:

Python-skin Bomber Jacket

Dress for Success Manafort-Style

Let’s take a closer look at that Python wrap, thanks to fashion blogger @BryanBoy:

Anyway, these articles of clothing are the sorts of things that drove Manafort to his life of crime.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Anyway, Judge T.S. Ellis scolded prosecutors for dwelling on the defendant’s wardrobe when only the parts relevant to the foreign bank accounts mattered. “Let’s move on, enough is enough,” he said.  “If it doesn’t say Men’s Wearhouse, I don’t know it,” he added.

Jurors also learned that Manafort spent half a million Ameros on landscaping for one of his homes, which featured a “red flower bed in the shape of an ‘M’.”

It’s probably safe to assume that there will soon be a golden flower bed in the shape of a “T” in front of the White House. But I digress.

  • Prosecutors now have testimony about Manafort’s success as a political consultant in Ukraine.
  • They’ve proven his wealth, and the astonishing and tacky things he bought and paid for using wire transfers from bank accounts in assorted offshore banking havens.
  • Prosecutors have shown the jury how Manafort and his company went broke.
  • They presented evidence about how he lied (ALLEGEDLY!) on official forms and to banks.

    That giant “T” in front of the White House WON’T be made from marigolds, once Hair Furor finds out there’s no actual gold in them – not even gold leaf.

    My favorite thing about that python jacket is the fact that it only has 3/4 sleeves. WTF?

    • That was a topic of discussion in the desertrat household last evening; we came to the mutual conclusion that abso-freaking-lutely NO ONE could pull that off without looking like a dorkasaurus.

      Or maybe Roy from ‘Dinosaurs’…

    Manafort has no need for a python skin jacket…he’s lived within his own reptilian skin for 69 years.

    900 K Ameros for really stupid looking clothes that are probably worth $5,000 to $10,000 max? Makes me think about money laundering.

    Further proof, if any was needed, that money can’t buy taste.
