I have no idea what the scene looked like as Paul Manafort was sentenced today, but I am highly dubious about the way it was portrayed in the headlines and on the Drudge Report.

"Manafort pleads," "Manafort begs," "Manafort grovels," &c., &c., &c.

Now, I can imagine your usual typical criminal craven Demo or primitive crawling abjectly on the ground with one's face downward to attain forgiveness, but Paul Manafort? Nah.

Despite his criminality, Paul Manafort has undeniably had experiences in life that hardened him, that enured him to difficulties, giving him strength and fortitude. He didn't get to where he got by being a wimp.

I have no way of knowing, and it probably wasn't televised anyway, what it looked like as he was sentenced, but it's credible to me that he swallowed hard and took the news like a man.
