Guilty Plea #3 From Team Trump… That's One Fat, Juicy Nothingburger!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

First George Papadopoulos, then General Mike Flynn. Now Rick Gates has become the third member of Donald Trump's presidential campaign or transition team to plead guilty.

But y'all keep telling yourselves it's all a hoax.

Trump's deputy campaign chairman plead guilty to two felonies — one of making false statements (which is the same thing Papadopoulos and Flynn plead to) and one of conspiracy against the United States — for which he could still face up to 71 months.

We'll say that again — conspiracy against the United States!

We're no legal experts, but we've seen enough Law & Order to know that plea deals are for LESSER crimes than what they committed — and they're given to folks who can testify against bigger fish.

In this case, the obvious bigger fish is Gates' boss Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign chairman, whom Robert Mueller has indicted on charges including conspiracy, money-laundering, and tax evasion.

Gates is already cooperating, signing a statement in the plea deal admitting he conspired with Manafort "in a variety of criminal schemes."

Manafort says he's not going to flip and give up an even bigger fish, but excuse us if we don't take a professional liar's word for it…

Donald Trump Thinks Movies Are Too Violent, Suggests Some Kind of 'Ratings System'

We promise we're not trying to be The Onion. This actually happened.

Donald Trump actually found a new scapegoat for gun violence on Thursday, which is to say he found an old scapegoat: violent video games and movies. After talking about how violent video games are shaping young minds, he moved to movies, saying:

"You see these movies, they're so violent. And yet a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn't involved, but killing is involved. And maybe they have to put a rating system for that."

Trump knows they get all our movies and video games in other countries, right? And yet they don't have nearly so many mass shootings or gun deaths. Interesting.

Also, how long has it been since Trump watched a movie?? They've had ratings for DECADES. Oh, and video games too.

And since it's 1999 again apparently, we'll go ahead and save him the time and tell him the popular music albums with the naughty words have explicit labels too.

Anything but guns, right?

Disgusting! NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch Says Many In Media 'Love Mass Shootings'!

It's that time of year. The end of February marks Spring when a young man's fancy turns to love. And when shady lobbyists speak openly to their right-wing allies.

Yep, the National Rifle Association has descended on the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual rally where all the worst Republicans can get together and talk about hating immigrants and the poor without fear of being disagreed with.

This year, the hot-button issue of the moment is of course gun control, and the NRA's Dana Loesch decided to take a shotgun to any teensy shred of good will she garnered by attending CNN's Town Hall meeting with the survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

How? Oh, by implying the media want there to be MORE shootings! She said:
