    An anti-Trump billboard was put up in New Jersey shortly after US President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty on eight counts of finance fraud, in part pertaining to the 2016 presidential campaign and hinting at the president’s involvement in a felony.

    According to Neil Harrison, who had initiated the move, the billboard that describes Trump as “our leader, the idiot” cost him nearly $1,000. The Twitter community naturally rushed to comment on this, with many reposting the news and offering their assessments.

    “Truth!!” one lady emotionally exclaimed, with another one reiterating the idea saying that there should be more of these billboards around:

    “LMAO! Bloody Brilliant!” another Twitter user joined a chorus of praise.

    One Twitter account even features statistics on the extent to which the news is currently trending in the media and social networks.

    However, there were also voices against the move, with one person noting such a billboard is “a disgrace,” traditionally picking up the “crooked Hillary” rhetoric in this context:

    On Tuesday, Cohen, Trump’s longtime associate, entered a guilty plea in New York in which he said he broke campaign finance laws at the direction of “a candidate for federal office," thereby implying Trump without explicitly stating his name. He also discussed having paid “hush money” to silence two women speaking out about Trump’s alleged extramarital affairs.

    The development came minutes before Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight charges of bank and tax fraud by a jury in Virginia.
