Kwame Kilpatrick, no stranger to the world of social media, took to Twitter on Thursday night to vent a bit about his ongoing corruption trial.

“If this case was in another State, not paid for by taxpayers, & my life was not on the line, this ish would be laughable.”

Kilpatrick was responding to a tweet from MVP Of Da 4thQuarter@_mrwinn3rstorm, who tweeted the former mayor the following earlier Thursday.

“Feds Say a Guy got $ outta Shoe Box & the Old Lady held $ n her Bra for @KwameAndFamily ! #NewsFlash: U Need Houses 2 Hide ‘RICO MONEY'”
