Voice-over for the reality-TV show, American Greed:

"[Raffaello] Follieri (Italian former boyfriend of Ann Hathaway) was
practically out of money and the _jig_ was almost up."

Then, somehow, by merely *promising* to give the Clinton Foundation
$50,000,000, he got an investment firm to give *him* $100,000,000, with
which he partied his ass off.

"For Mr. Follieri, it looks like the _jig_ is finally up."

But he confidenced a hedge fund into paying off his millions of dollars in

And he was still in his twenties. He was only 32, when he got out of a Club
Fed in '14.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
