WTF is even going on anymore.
Today, impeached president Donald John Trump did another bad thing right out in the open.

On Twitter, he said New York “must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment” if state residents want the ability to apply for 'Global Entry' status with the Department of Homeland Security.

This quid-pro-quo, this-for-that tweet is super wrong and seems against the law? But nothing matters.
Here's how the former director of the Office of Government Ethics responded.
Again, here is what President Trump is demanding in the screenshotted tweet above: the governor and law enforcement entities of New York, a state which was his residence until very recently, must stop investigating Trump family crimes if New York residents want to receive federal services.
This is fine.
Also -- Trump appears to believe that Cuomo, the governor, is responsible for filing these lawsuits against Trump.
The state attorney general is, you big dummy.
Here's the AG's tweeted reply.
