I saw how bitter he was towards Trump. I hope he enjoys his vacation courtesy of the federal department of prisons.

Just watched that documentary. I will NEVER consume another Pepsi product. What a bunch of crooks, even more than I ever imagined.

Kid should have gotten the jet.

Go figure, another corrupt NY judge.
