Trump's indictment sets a concerning precedent for corrupt men everywhere

From The Chaser:

Dear readers,

America’s 45th president Donald J Trump was indicted just hours ago for taking classified and top secret documents to his residence in Mar-a-Lago, potentially setting an extremely concerning precedent of actually punishing powerful cis-white men for crimes.

Donald Trump was one of the world's best corrupt businessmen and pussy grabbers, people like that are the backbone of the entire political and justice system. If we set the precedent that men like him can be held responsible for their actions, who knows what sort of chaotic world that could cause?

This is the start of a very slippery slope. Indicting former presidents for federal crimes, what next, actually investigating powerful men for tax evasion, sexual assault or war crimes? Where does the madness end?

The US Justice Department claim to have found illegally held documents and recordings of Trump acknowledging that he was committing an alleged crime, but in his defence, who hasn’t stolen stationery supplies or classified information from work?

Here at The Chaser we hope that the system works as it was designed to and justice is served, where the powerful cis-white man gets away with whatever he allegedly did then gets to sue anyone who commented on the allegations, because clearly it is the journalists and random social media users who need to be punished.

Television was one of my first great loves...

I've still got Marquee Moon and Adventure on vinyl though I haven't listened to them for ages and don't have a turntable.
