Gangster Whitey Bulger loved Trump. It figures. Birds of a feather.

In prison letters, 'Whitey' Bulger praised Trump and blasted Mueller

In the final months of his life, James "Whitey" Bulger wrote letters from prison offering his thoughts on a range of subjects.

His faltering health. His longtime girlfriend. His wish for a peaceful death.
But there was another topic that the notorious Boston crime boss returned to again and again: President Donald Trump.

"Trump is tough and fights back instead of bowing down to pressure and caving in to press!" Bulger wrote in August 2018. "U.S. agrees with him press attacking and his reaction increases his popularity He has my vote so far."

"History may show Trump was the man of the hour," Bulger wrote in a different letter earlier that month. "Feel China respects him and hesitant to try to bully him."

The legendary gangster, who was beaten to death inside a West Virginia prison cell last fall, was an ardent Trump supporter and fan of conservative media figures such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, according to the letters shared with NBC News.

1. I read that the reason the woman who tipped off the FBI remembered him was his anti Obama rant

She lived in Iceland but spent part of the year in Santa Monica and lived in the same complex as Bulger. As I recall, she said his partner was nice enough, but he was difficult, to say the least.

One day he went into a vile, screaming rage over her admiration for Barack Obama. She never forgot him or that rage.

So, when she saw his photo on TV, she immediately recognized him. And she made that phone call.

Much like Trump.

8. Exactly. The man was a vile racist.

It was true poetic justice that the Judge that sentenced his ass is a Black woman.
