All those things reporters don’t ask because Hillary is shrill

Trump is deep enough with mob guys that none of the media orgs want to take them on:

How did an alleged and notorious Russian mobster connected to an illegal international gambling ring run out of Trump Tower end up as a special guest at a Donald Trump event in Moscow in 2013? This may be one of the odder questions of the already-odd 2016 presidential campaign.

On April 16, 2013, federal agents burst into a swanky apartment at Trump Tower in New York City as part of a larger raid that rounded up 29 suspected members of two global gambling rings with operations allegedly overseen by a supposed Russian mob boss named Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov. The Russian was not nabbed by US law enforcement. Since being indicted in the United States a decade earlier for allegedly rigging an ice skating competition at the 2002 Olympics, he had been living in Russia, beyond the reach of Western authorities. And this new gambling indictment did not appear to inconvenience Tokhtakhounov. Seven months after the bust, he was a VIP attendee at Donald Trump’s Miss Universe 2013 contest held in Moscow. In fact, Tokhtakhounov hit the red carpet within minutes of Trump. An alleged crime lord who was a fugitive from American justice was apparently a celebrity guest at Trump’s event.

  1. But Hillary used an ozone-destroying hairspray in 2010!

    Honestly. Get your priorities straight.

    (And because this is the sometimes-zero-reading-comprehension web: /sarcasm.)

  2. Trump’s ties to Russian mobsters ought to be the primary issue in this campaign.
    (Along with his non-payment of taxes and fraudulent business activities.)

  3. If that’s his picture at the link behind Trump – yikes!

    The American press has shown it’s colors this year. I just hope this doesn’t signal the end of democracy. At least we have the Interwebs.
