NEW: Law enforcement source tells @NBCNewYork Steve Bannon was arrested this morning on board a boat off the coast of Westbrook, CT #nbc4ny https://t.co/hV9egi3SiZ— Steven Bognar (@Bogs4NY) August 20, 2020
The funny old thing about Trump's former campaign manager and White House staffer Steve Bannon being arrested by the Post Office while on board a boat for a money laundering scam involving ripping off Trump-loving racists who wanted to privately fund a big old border-wall when that's not even a thing and totally sounded like a scam in the first place is, well...everything. Everything about it is funny except, you know, the part where that actually happened and isn't even considered balls-to-the-wall crazypants here in 2020. It's just Thursday.
UPDATE: Well, okay, one of the funniest things about it is that Don Jr. endorsed the hell out of it and lent it authenticity. Did he know it was fishy? Inquiring minds might want to know.
UPDATE: The Trump Org has a statement about Jr's apparent endorsement:

He thought they were doing good things because he's a large adult boy who was just as taken as anyone else of course! (Well, he is, after all, the guy who Mueller deemed too dumb to collude because he literally sat in a meeting with people who said "We're from the Russian government and we're here to help the Trump campaign" and....didn't get it.
