The 24-year-old man who is accused of the murder of the famous boss of the Gambino crime family wrote a series of slogans on his hand, including “MAGA Forever,” and she went for a court Monday.

Anthony Comello held his left hand while waiting for a hearing to start in Toms River, New Jersey, where he agreed to be extradited to New York.

On the scrawled slogans such as “MAGA Forever”, an abbreviation of President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America great Again.” Also read “United We Stand, MAGA.”

It is unclear what his motives were for the display of the hand-written words.

Comello was arrested Saturday in New Jersey on the death of Francesco Cali last week in front of his Staten Island home.

Comello’s lawyer, Brian Dresden, wouldn’t it be about the writing of the hand of the client, nor would he say whether Comello maintained his innocence.

MAFIA KILL IS THE FIRST NEW YORK MAFIA BOSS HIT EVER CAPTURED ON VIDEO: REPORT

The New York Times reported Monday afternoon that Comello told detectives he was high on marijuana and allegedly shot Cali, because he feared for his life.

The police said Cali, 53, was shot 10 times.

Federal prosecutors referred to Cali in the court filings in 2014 as the incorporates of the Mafia, the Gambino family, once one of the most powerful organizations. News accounts since 2015 said Cali had ascended to the top spot, although he was never charged with the leadership of the gang. Are any mob-related conviction came ten years ago, when he was sentenced to 16 months in prison in an extortion scheme involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was released in 2009, and not yet in legal problems since that time.

The last Mafia boss to be rubbed in New York City was the don Gambino “Big Paul” Castellano, who was murdered in 1985.

The officials have not yet confirmed that the Gambino crime family has placed a bounty on Comello, but “the general feeling is that there is an ‘X’ on this guy,” one source said.

“He’s going to have some issues in the prison,” a high-ranking NYPD official said.

“Maybe there’s a number of guys who are wiseguys in the prison that will show their loyalty to the Gambinos and say,” We take care of this man.'”
