Trump: Thumbs-Up to the Mob

In a surprise campaign move, our Stable Jenius took a selfie with a convicted mob boss:

They share an affinity for golf and an aversion to cooperating witnesses who “flip” to help federal investigators.

But former president Donald Trump and former Philly mob boss Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino don’t have much to say about how they wound up in a photo together at a South Florida golf course.

Trump posed for the photo with Merlino earlier this month at Trump International Golf Club West Palm Beach. The two, along with an unidentified third man, flash Trump’s customary “thumbs-up” hand signs and smiles while wearing golfing attire.

And then the usual disclaimer:

“President Trump takes countless photos with people. That does not mean he knows every single person he comes in contact with,” said a Trump spokesperson after The Inquirer shared a copy of the photo with his campaign.

The spokesperson did not respond when asked if Trump knew Merlino, or his background.

We do not know if Hair Füror is planning a dinner at Merde-a-Lardo with Nazis, White Nationalists, and Mafia Dons, but we wouldn’t be a bit surprised.
