8. Interesting. The russkies used to indict us, our country and government, as 'gangsters'.

Now Putin runs the russkie mob, and got an american mob suck up put in as puppet president.

His ridiculous coke abuser-like sniffs are his Hymen Roth / Meyer Lansky impersonation, that he got from Roy Cohn.

I can just see Vito Genovese, at his deportation hearing, telling the judge he was just 'being sarcastic'.

I agree that the mob bosses tell their flunkies conspiratorial plans, then tell the court later that they were joking, to avoid conspiracy charges and pin the crime on the underlings who committed the crime (they went broken arrow) and turned state's evidence and relayed the boss's conversation about planned conspiracy.

But they don't do it right on the stage, in front of cameras, with a megaphone. They're not joking or being sarcastic at press conferences where they proudly conspire. They don't even want phones around them when they're conspiring.

The closest thing to it would be Joe Colombo's Italian American Anti Defamation League campaign, before he got shot by some other mob boss. But Joe wasn't saying 'here's my plan to hijack that liquor shipment and run heroin' in front of mainstream mass media, then also saying he 'was joking or being sarcastic' to avoid the fallout.

DeNiro called Rump a disappointed Dunsky. He's a fake old tough guy candy ass half a mobster. Like he's a fake half a WASP aristocrat white collar wall st crook.

Dave Cay Johnston or Wayne Barrett said he never once went to talk to the Philly Mob's Scarfos or Testas in person, always sent a paid underling. He could never take the slightest personal physical risk, he was too delicate and precious. He's real good at playing Don Corleone onstage at a distance, though.
