MOB BOSS TRUMP?-“You see the mob takes the Fifth,” he said. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

NEW YORK — Donald Trump invoked the Fifth Amendment and wouldn’t answer questions under oath in the New York attorney general’s long-running civil investigation into his business dealings, the former president said in a statement Wednesday.

Like Alex Jones, Trump needs to pay all Americans for Lying to 🇺🇸.

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, Trump’s buildings and his casinos attracted underworld figures like “Fat Tony” Salerno, the Fedora-wearing, cigar-chomping boss of the Genovese crime family. Salerno, who’s portrayed in the film by Domenick Lombardozzi, supplied the fast-drying concrete that built Trump Tower and other Trump properties. Salerno also controlled the local concrete workers union, and when a strike shut down construction in Manhattan in 1982, the one of the few buildings that wasn’t affected was Trump Tower.

Throughout the final, tortured moments of the 2020 presidential campaign, Donald Trump took to referring to his rival, Joe Biden, as the head of “the Biden crime family.” But as psychologist Mary L. Trump, the soon-to-be-erstwhile commander-in-chief’s niece, and author of Too Much and Never Enough, has suggested, some of Trump’s statements are, in fact, projections of his own behavior. Indeed, Trump’s alpha male posturing and affected bravado — which he used to foment a personal brand of being a savvy businessman and a mover-and-shaker blessed with raw cunning — is bound up in the mythos of the mobster as portrayed in pop culture, film, and TV. However, the realities that seep through that mythos, like blood on carpet, demonstrate why Trump is leaving the White House at a record low in approval. Trump may have tried to affect the steely suaveness of the hyper-competent crime boss, but he failed because, in fact, he’s a blundering thug.

Trump’s demand for personal fealty, which the president has denied making, was like “Sammy the Bull’s Cosa Nostra induction ceremony.”
