A landmark in trolling, Paul Manafort edition
Now this is hilarious! We wish we’d thought this up:
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is looking at some serious prison time after his federal indictment on conspiracy and money laundering charges—and it has also served to make Manafort’s Brooklyn property the butt of the joke.
A fake “landmark” designation placard appeared in front of the veteran strategist’s house on the heels of the unveiling of bombshell charges against Manafort and an associate in conjunction with a federal probe into Russian attempts to meddle with the 2016 election.
“377 Union Street will forever be known as the building that lead [sic] to the collapse of the presidency of Donald J. Trump,” the makeshift sign read, according to a photo shared with Newsweek via social media Tuesday night.
The snarky signage formally declared the building’s finances “would later become the foundation for initial charges of money laundering and conspiracy against the United States of America.”
