Has your fruit been smelling or tasting like butt lately? If so, it could be because 27-year old, Michael Dwayne Johnson was in the produce section at your grocery store before you.
USA TODAY (@USAToday) reports, police were called to a Giant grocery store in Virginia after multiple shoppers reported seeing a man picking fruit off the shelf, rubbing it on his ass, then putting the fruit back on the shelf. The worst part is that Johnson reportedly pulled his pants down before he rubbed the fruit on his bare ass.
What I’ve learned in my travels through life is that people rarely get caught the first time they do something. If that theory applies here…and you live in Virginia….and you eat fruit…there’s probably a good chance that you’ve tasted ass before. Or at least, Michael Dwayne Johnson’s ass.
Johnson was charged with destruction of property and indecent exposure. The Giant store said they had to destroy several pallets of produce out of fear of contamination.
You wouldn’t be wrong if you called yesterday Tragic Tuesday for Donald Trump, his supporters, and the entire GOP. At practically the same time long term Trump lawyer/”fixer”, Michael Cohen was pleading guilty to various charges include illegal campaign finance violations, in a federal courthouse in New York, and also implicating Trump himself in some of those crimes, Trump former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort was learning his fate in Virginia as he awaited the verdict in his trial on multiple federal charges including tax fraud.
Guilty was the verdict on 8 out of the 18 crimes Manafort was charged with. CNN (@cnn) reported, Judge T.S. Ellis declared a mistrial on the 10 crimes the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict on. The FEDS still hold all of the cards in the mistrial charges as they can decide to re-try Manafort on those charges if they wish to.
Manafort was found guilty of five (5) tax fraud charges, two (2) counts of bank fraud, and one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts. Manafort faces a maximun 80 years behind bars for the 8 counts he was convicted on. Manafort may have some relief heading his way in the form of a presidential pardon, which Trump kind of hinted at early on Wednesday morning.
A Manafort pardon by Trump will be Republicans worst nightmare. Manafort was convicted by a jury of his peers. Not by angry Democrats or Republicans. He was convicted by law abiding, tax paying citizens of this Country. Attacking the verdict is not an attack on law enforcement or the FBI. An attack on this verdict will be an attack on America and its citizens who found Manafort guilty after a fair and legal trial. Republicans manage to look the other way when Trump does most things, but this one won’t be so easy to ignore. This will be an attack on the American democracy itself….. In the famous words of Donald Trump, “we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”
Former Trump Campaign Chairman, Paul Manafort has just had his bail revoked by a District Judge in a Washington DC federal courtroom and is headed to jail.
Manafort was in court today to answer to claims of witness tampering alleged by the prosecution. Manafort was free on house arrest as he awaited charges on bank fraud and money laundering. Prosecutors alleged that Manafort contacted multiple witnesses in an effort to get them to change testimony or not testify against him at all. The witnesses, most of whom were already working with prosecutors, told prosecutors of Manafort’s attempted contact immediately after it happened. One witnesses reportedly even recorded the call with Manafort. Manafort was taken into custody immediately after this morning’s court proceedings. Paul Manafort has two upcoming trials. One in Virginia and this one in DC. Manafort is expected to be held in a federal jail in the D.C. area until jail officials find a jail to house him until his DC trial begins in September.
This story is still breaking. More details to come on this story as details emerge. Stay tuned!
Former Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson spoke to upcoming graduates of the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, VA this afternoon. Tillerson seemed to be throwing a few shots at his former boss and the current administration occupying the White House. Tillerson spoke about “leaders concealing the truth” as they attempt to create “alternate realities” that are not “grounded in facts.” If you recall, Tillerson was unceremoniously fired in a disrespectful fashion…….by Tweet. Those facts removes the question of IF Tillerson was taking shots at Trump during this speech. He was. But it does bring up the question……why now? Why didn’t you do anything to help remove him when you were standing alongside the “dangerous” people who are attempting to create “alternate realities” with the lies they tell to the American people? Why try to separate yourself from the pack now? Because you no longer work there, do you now believe that you are no longer included in the swamp that is attempting to bring the American Democracy to its knees? Sorry Rex, too little, too late for me. You should’ve had the heart to speak up when you had the chance. History will not remember you as some hero who did “the right thing.” History will remember you as another swamp monster who tried to sell America to the highest bidder. The only difference between you and the current administration, is that you got fired. If you had not been fired, you would’ve continued to swim in the swamp. And please spare me the bullsh*t line about “you stayed in your position out of fear that he would put someone else there.” Tell that crap to someone else. If you had any shred of decency in your body, you would not have willingly jumped into a basket full of deplorables in the first place! When you play in mud you get dirty. Point blank. So, save the holier-than-thou crap for someone who buys that type of sh*t. I am not one of them. Here’s the video of Rex’s speech:
