BAD ACTOR: INDICTED MANAFORT SAID TO BE BROKE, ACCEPTS ROLE IN MICHAEL MOORE’S MOCKUMENTARY “THE GODAWFULFATHER”
Washington (eTruePolitics) – With legal bills soaring, indicted former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is so close to bankruptcy he has reportedly accepted a role in Michael Moore’s latest film, a ‘mockumentary’ titled The Godawfulfather, eTruePolitics has learned.
Reportedly still an under-the-radar adviser on Russia to the current president, Manfort – who is usually paid in cash – has apparently not received monies from Trump or the Trump organization in over a month.
The result? The desperate Manafort, who previously earned as much as $10 million a year from Russian oligarch and Putin pal Oleg Deripaska, agreed to play himself in Moore’s satirical Godawfulfather, according to a knowledgeable source who requested anonymity before speaking to eTruePolitics because he feared for his life.
“Everybody’s saying I’m a bad actor,” joked Manafort, who again denied he received $12.7 million in cash between 2007 and 2012 from Ukrainian despot and war criminal Viktor Yanukovych. “I’m gona prove ’em all wrong. I’m a funny guy. Also, I’m not guilty of nuthin’.”
