    'Take her out': New recording appears to feature an angry Trump telling associates to 'get rid of' the US's ambassador to Ukraine for bad-mouthing him

    “"Get her out tomorrow. I don't care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it," Trump reportedly said of Yovanovitch.”

    “The conversation reportedly took place at Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, and also involved Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two associates of Rudy Giuliani who've become embroiled in the impeachment proceedings.”

    Am I the only one who thinks Trump has seen too many mafia movies?

    I can't remember who, but someone on t.v. mentioned a week or so ago that Trump acts like a "don" in the Mob.

    BTW, since I'm married to a Sicilian, I've developed a fear of cement shoes.:neutral:

    My wife does insurance for the Teamsters. One of their CEO's was gunned down in their lobby (before my wife was there, but still).

    Then you probably live not too far from where my wife & I live. Maybe we should together some day and dredge the Detroit River and see if we can find Hoffa.

    I'm a bit west of there. But her company has appeared in some films on this.

    You are the one that has seen too many mafia movies by attributing "take her out" in isolation of the other phrases used and quoted in your own post and the article.

    Trump is a failed wannabe "mafia" don, as well as an aspiring dictator.

    I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a *****. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.

    In his mind, he is above everything, everyone, every law.
    So he is also probably a mafia don as well, in his mind.

    Maybe.

    But don’t miss the other part of this story. Trump claimed he does not know Lev Parnas. And here he is in a meeting with Lev and Igor talking about taking out s U.S. ambassador.

    Apparently Lev told the truth to Maddow in the interview, and Trump (surprise surprise) lies.

    The story I heard was that he was buried somewhere underneath the Meadowlands Sports Complex.

    He could very well be. This excerpt of a conversation he had with Sen. McConnell was quite revealing.


    Senator McConnell: I don't like your kind of people. I don't like to see you come out to this clean country with your orange hair, dressed up in those silk suits, trying to pass yourself off as a decent American. I'll do business with you, but the fact is that I despise your masquerade, the dishonest way you pose yourself — yourself and your whole ****ing family.


    President Trump: Senator, we're both part of the same hypocrisy, but never think it applies to my family.

    I thought the “I don’t know him”, was more analogous to a mafia movie. As fantome profane said.

    I don't think he meant that someone should kill her. He has already shown he is not particularly articulate and does not have good command of the language.
    Anyway, Trump was close to correct when he declared that he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and his followers would still like him.

    I am curious about what depravity he would have to engage in to lose his base. So far they have held up through some pretty abysmal behavior.
