Crybaby Trump is Miffed that His MAGA Cult Isn’t Storming the Courts to Protest His Persecution

On the first day of testimony in Donald Trump’s election interference (aka “hush money”) trial in New York, the defendant sat ruefully contemplating his fate. When he wasn’t nodding off, he is reported to have appeared tired and annoyed as the opening statements were delivered.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

Trump’s attorney embarked on a bold strategy to argue that reimbursing his lawyer for a $130,000.00 payment to buy the silence of a porn star in order to improperly influence an election, then lying about it on his financial reports, had nothing to with him. Of course not. He’s just a pure-hearted, selfless, martyr trying to save America.

SEE THIS: Trump Casts Himself as ‘a Modern Day Nelson Mandela’ While Lashing Out at All of His Judges

As the trial proceeds, Trump is undergoing some severe stress and annoyance at how his MAGA cult is failing to sufficiently support him in his hour of need. On Monday morning he took to his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, to whip them into shape and incite them into taking more forceful action on his behalf. Trump wrote that…

“America Loving Protesters should be allowed to protest at the front steps of Courthouses, all over the Country, just like it is allowed for those who are destroying our Country on the Radical Left, a two tiered system of justice. Free Speech and Assembly has been ‘CHILLED’ for USA SUPPORTERS. GO OUT AND PEACEFULLY PROTEST. RALLY BEHIND MAGA. SAVE OUR COUNTRY! ‘THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF.'”

Trump is implying that “America Loving” protesters (which in his noxious narcissism means “Trump loving”) are not being “allowed” to gather to support him. But who is stopping them? There just isn’t any real enthusiasm among his minions to show up. So in his dismay over the tepid turnout, Trump is trying to fire up his flock the way he did on January 6, 2021, for the insurrection at the Capitol. Only this time he wants them to crash courthouses across the country.

It’s a safe bet that Trump will not get his wish. There have not been any notable demonstrations at any of the trials or hearings held for Trump in the past. Protesters have regularly been outnumbered by reporters. Which, while it’s something that Trump enjoys to exploit, it doesn’t translate into support or, eventually, votes. To the contrary, it is likely alienating more people, who increasingly find Trump to be repugnant and unrelatable. And that’s despite the characterization that Trump’s lawyer made about him in court Monday morning…

Trump Desperately Clings to Fox News Legal Hacks Who Ignore the Law to Fluff Trump

There is now a predictable ritual that occurs every time that Donald Trump makes an appearance in court. Immediately following the hearing Trump ambles out to a nearby rabble of reporters gathered to record his post-trial rants (and the press really needs to stop doing that). With the jury now selected we can expect to see these staged sniveling sessions on a near daily basis for the next few weeks.

Donald Trump, Fox News

Never mind that there is never anything newsworthy to report from these disgorgements of grievances. It’s just Trump repeating the same complaints he does whenever a camera is pointed at him. He’s either crying about being a helpless victim or falsely accusing everyone from the judge to the prosecutors to the witnesses to the jury, of being biased against him in what he insists is a “rigged” trial that he should never have had to endure.

SEE THIS: Trump Says All Presidents Must Have ‘Total Immunity’ from Crimes – Except for President Biden

On Thursday Trump brought some props to his circus act. He awkwardly rifled through a stack of printouts someone provided for him of articles from sycophantic right-wing media. He was presenting them as “proof” that the charges against him were unfounded. But they were pretty weak evidence. He read off a few of his sources, and they were all Fox News legal analysts…

“Jonathan Turley. Gregg Jarrett. Andrew McCarthy. Every one of them saying, they call it a zombie case, meaning it is no case. And they say it’s unconstitutional. They don’t think the case is…These are all stories that have taken place over the last few days.”

Well then, that settles it. Dismiss the case and let Trump return to the comfort of his Mar-a-Lago bunker. He later claimed that these article represented all of the opinions about his case, saying that “I haven’t seen one that says it’s a good trial.”

Apparently Trump has a very narrow field of vision. He obviously hasn’t seen the opinions of respected legal experts like Lawrence Tribe, Andrew Weissmann, Joyce Vance, Neal Katyal, Michael Luttig, Barbara McQuade, Glenn Kirschner, Jill Wine-Banks, and even his own former attorney, Ty Cobb. All of whom regard the case against Trump as strong and likely to lead to a conviction.

As affirmation that what Trump is doing is a joke, his courtside spectacle was addressed by Jimmy Kimmel in his monologue Thursday night, who noted that…

“The MAGA media, they’re doing everything they can to push this idea that this won’t be a fair trial. That way, when he loses, they can say the jury was rigged.”

Then Kimmel played a series of clips of people on Fox News and Newsmax insisting that Trump can’t a fair trial because Manhattan is chock full of Trump haters. Which is interesting, because Trump is also saying this….

It’s also interesting that these Trump-fluffers in the wingnut press are baselessly alleging that liberals are lying to get on the jury, but they never mention the possibility of Trump cultists doing so. Even though some MAGA crackpots are explicitly encouraging it.

Clearly the only threat to a fair trial is being posed by Trump and his MAGA minions. Along with those who are trying to taint the jury, there people like Sean Hannity and Jesse Watters who are trying to intimidate prospective jurors by revealing identifying information about them on the air.

Hopefully their tactics won’t work, and the trial will proceed to a fair conclusion. And hopefully, in the interim, the media will refrain from airing Trump’s sideshow antics during the intermissions.

Fox News Totally Flubs (i.e. Lies) About How Jury Biases Would Impact Trump’s Hush Money Trial

On Monday jury selection began for the first ever criminal trial of a former American president. It’s only the beginning of Donald Trump’s legal tribulations as there are three more criminal trials gearing up that could make him the first ever former president felon. The so-called “Hush Money” case – which could more accurately be called the “Election Interference” case – is just the first one out of the gate.

Fox News, Constitution

Trump has been spending these days whining pitifully that he is a poor beleaguered victim of a corrupt judicial system that he says is determined to destroy him. Never mind that he is the cause of his troubles due to his relentless criminal activities and behavior that exhibits a consciousness of guilt. He even issues public confessions admitting that he has done what he’s accused of, but claiming that he’s allowed to under an imaginary doctrine of “presidential Immunity.”

SEE THIS: Felonious Punk Trump Demands ‘TOTAL IMMUNITY’ – Even for Acts that ‘CROSS THE LINE’

Jury selection in high profile cases like these are always complicated as attorneys on both sides seek to assemble a panel that will not be biased against against their client (the defendant or the state). In this particular case that is even trickier because Trump’s supporters are fully indoctrinated cult members who can be expected to deceive the court in order get on the jury and save their Dear Leader from clutches of justice.

To that end, Fox News is contributing to the problem by disparaging the court and encouraging misbehavior by prospective Trump jurors. Fox News contributor Clay Travis actually suborned perjury by advising potential jurors to “do whatever you can to get seated” on the jury.

But that’s just for starters. Fox News also interviewed law professor and Trump toady, John Yoo, who gave an utterly bizarre analysis of the jury selection process, saying that…

“I think it’s pretty extraordinary in the very first jury pool, before you interview anybody, half of the jury pool already says that they’re so biased against President Trump that they can’t serve on the jury…That’s only going to feed into, I think, Donald Trump’s claim that the public integrity of court’s and the prosecutors is to be questioned as biased and unfair against them.”

First of all, it is a flagrant lie that half of the jury was dismissed because they were biased against Trump. The truth is that prospective jurors completed a questionnaire that asked several questions to ascertain whether they had “any” strong opinions about, or association with Trump.

One question specifically asked, “Is there any reason, whether it be a bias or something else, that would prevent you from being fair and impartial if you are selected as a juror for this case?” Judge Merchan also asked for a show of hands of those who believed that they could not be fair and impartial. Those who raised their hands or otherwise indicated an inability to be impartial were dismissed.

Note that none of these inquiries indicated whether a bias was in favor of or against Trump. Just whether any bias existed either way. So, contrary to Woo’s analysis, it is just as likely that supporters of Trump were dismissed for bias as opponents.

But Yoo’s analysis was also flawed logically, in that he asserted that dismissing those who were biased against Trump would disadvantage him. What? Quite obviously the opposite is true. If only people who were biased against Trump were dismissed, leaving him with a jury comprised of his supporters, that would be an enormous advantage for him.

Despite the efforts of the court to ensure a fair trial, Trump and Fox News keep whining that Trump can’t get an impartial jury of his peers in New York. They seem to think that “peers” means political allies. Trump’s team is fixated on smearing the judicial system, this court, and the jurors. And Trump’s press secretary made that clear in an appearance on Newsmax Tuesday morning…

Let’s face it. The Trump team is already convinced that they are going to lose. so they are pulling out all the stops to demean the courts and dismiss the findings of the jury. But they are so frightened by their fate that they have lost all ability to make coherent arguments. So sad.

WHUT? Fox News Drools Over the Distemper Tantrum Tirades of Trump as ‘Respecting the Court’

The extraordinary ability of Fox News to justify any and every atrocity of Donald Trump has been well documented from the first day that he descended on his goldish escalator to announce his American Carnage campaign to occupy the White House and gather all glory unto his exaltedness.

Donald Trump Fox News

It would be difficult to rank the abominations that Trump has been responsible for over the years. But whether it was his deadly mismanagement of the COVID pandemic, or his crashing the U.S. economy, or his abhorrent bigotry and assaults on civil rights, Fox News was always there to try clean it up and present his failures as miracles by the messiah of Mar-a-Lago.

SEE THIS: Fox News Hack Joins the Trump Cult Choir Proclaiming that ‘We’ve Always Seen Honesty with Trump’

On Monday morning Trump was in a New York courtroom as the first ever former U.S. president to be tried for criminal acts. He was typically furious and frightened as he lashed out the judge, the prosecutors, and the witnesses. Beginning at 5:39 AM ET, Trump posted more than 60 comments on his floundering social media scam, Truth social, in a pitiful display of desperation and impotence. So leave it to Fox News to rush to his rescue with a crackpot commentary provided by Harris Faulkner, co-host of Fox’s Outnumbered…

“One bottom line for Donald Trump today. this is the weakest of the cases. So no matter how he goes forward it is rather uphill. And I liked what he said earlier. I like when any defendant talks this way. ‘It is my honor. It’s a pleasure to be here.’ Respecting the court.”

First of all, Faulkner is in no position to grade the strength or weakness of Trump’s legal cases, since she regards all of them as unwarranted. In her view, like that of all MAGA cultists, Trump is the epitome of purity and innocence. But more to the point, Faulkner’s slobbering praise of Trump as someone who is “Respecting the court” is downright delusional.

Has Faulkner ever heard anything that Trump has said about the courts and the prosecutors that are conducted his trials? He has repeatedly maligned them as “corrupt” and “crooked” and “biased” and “Trump-hating” and “conflicted” and generally unscrupulous and unfair. He has attacked the judges, attorneys, and witnesses personally, resulting in his being slapped with a gag order (that he may already have violated). And he has even attacked the as yet unnamed jurors who he assumes will be anti-Trump.

So where is Faulkner getting the idea that Trump respects the court? Well, from her statement she is getting it from comments he made Monday morning before court. She lauds him for saying that it is his “honor” and “pleasure” to be there. There’s just one problem with that. He never said either of those things. What Trump did say was another attack on the court that he portrayed as a “political persecution” that he was “proud” to be battling against.

“It’s an assault on America. And that’s why I’m very proud to be here. This is an assault on our country. And it’s a country that’s failing. It’s a country that’s being run by an incompetent man who is very much involved in this case.”

Where is the “respect” in calling the proceedings “an assault on America”? Where is the “respect” in falsely charging that the judge is improperly coordinating with President Biden? In short, what the f**k is Faulkner talking about?

Trump doesn’t know the meaning of “respect,” unless it’s intended to be lavished on him by glassy-eyed sycophants like Faulkner, despite his having done nothing to earn it. Although Fox News deserves some respect for being able to dispense this kind of bullpucky with a straight face.

Fox News Advises Criminals (e.g. Trump) to Commit Crimes in Red States to Get Friendly Juries

Next Monday there will be a historic first in America. The nation will commence the first criminal trial of a former United States president. The defendant, Donald Trump, has been whining plaintively that “Nothing like this has ever happened before.” And in another historic first, he’s right. But only because no other president has ever been such a brazen perpetrator of crimes.

Fox News Sad

Monday’s proceedings involve Trump’s election interference and federal election financial fraud, in a matter that the media is soft-pedaling as the “Hush Money” case. Trump has been shamelessly conducting his years-long crime spree in the open, convinced that he is entitled to violate any laws he chooses with impunity. He literally confesses to the charges against him, but argues that an imaginary doctrine of “presidential immunity” releases him from any legal consequences.

SEE THIS: Felonious Punk Trump Demands ‘TOTAL IMMUNITY’ – Even for Acts that ‘CROSS THE LINE’

Naturally, Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, is buttressing his ludicrous legal excuses with equally bizarre rationale. Like Trump, they believe that he cannot be held accountable for any of the 88 felony charges currently pending against him, but that President Biden has no such immunity and must be immediately incarcerated without trial or evidence.

However, in a segment on Saturday morning, Fox and Friends co- hosts Rachel Campos-Duffy and Pete Hegseth went even further to offer legal counsel to any conservatives watching who might be contemplating committing any crimes…

Campos-Duffy: You know, maybe subconsciously people are realizing, you know, I could have trouble with the law at some point. Something could happen to me. Do I want to be in a red state or a blue state, you know? This is a case where, you know, the outcome of your case is determined by the jury pool and where you’re at. And so, you know, I think it’s interesting that maybe you wanna be in a red state if you’re conservative, because at least you’ll get a, you know, a jury of your peers. Somebody who will…
Hegseth: He wants a fair shake.

First of all, what allegedly professional television communicator inserts the interjection “you know” six times in a brief comment? Does she have any idea what she’s talking about? And who are these prospective criminals (including herself) that Campos-Duffy says are “subconsciously realizing” that they’re gonna have trouble with the law?

More to the point, Campos-Duffy is affirmatively advocating that conservatives plan and execute their unlawful deeds in red states (i.e. states populated and governed by Republicans), where she believes they will be given more favorable treatment by the potential jurors there. In effect, she’s asserting that red states are more tolerant of crime and criminals. Which might explain why, contrary to GOP gaslighting, crime rates are actually higher in red states.

What’s more, Campos-Duffy thinks that “a jury of your peers” means jurors who are aligned with you politically. Which, of course, is preposterous. Clearly her opinion is driven by her hopes that a jury of Trump supporters would acquit him, not because he’s innocent, but because they are idolatrous cult disciples who don’t care that he’s guilty.

Notice also that Hegseth cuts Campos-Duffy off at the end of her remarks to prevent her from saying that a defendant in a red state could get a jury with “Somebody who will…” What? Let him off the hook? Hang the jury? Let’s face it, Trump and his ilk are not looking for a “fair shake.”

So Trump’s first criminal trial is set to begin Monday in his home state of New York. But that doesn’t satisfy the Trump-fluffers at Fox News. They have actually argued that “fairness” would require a venue change to someplace like Alabama. Now Fox is warning any aspiring felons that “maybe you wanna be in a red state if you’re conservative.” And if they are listening, we may see a surge of crimes by conservatives in MAGA Land. Where “at least you’ll get a, you know, a jury of your peers.”

Trump Says All Presidents Must Have ‘Total Immunity’ from Crimes – Except for President Biden

Next week jury selection will begin for the first criminal trial of Donald Trump. In fact, it’s the first criminal trial of any former American president. Trump is outraged because, as he incessantly whines, “Nothing like this has ever happened before.” But that’s only because there hasn’t been any other persistently profligate perpetrator of crimes like Trump before.

Donald Trump Mugshot - Loser Emoji

The peculiar thing about Trump’s legal misadventures is that his defense rarely involves providing arguments that he is innocent. More often than not he defends himself by asserting that it is improper to accuse him of anything because he has the imaginary security blanket of “presidential immunity” that frees him from any consequences for any crimes he feels like committing. Nothing like that exists in the law, but he clings to it desperately.

SEE THIS: Felonious Punk Trump Demands ‘TOTAL IMMUNITY’ – Even for Acts that ‘CROSS THE LINE’

On Wednesday Trump took to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, to unleash his intensifying trepidation of being convicted for any number of the 88 felony charges he has currently pending. He posted a couple of fear-drenched videos on the subject of immunity that illustrate just how addled and irrational he is. The first began…

“If a President doesn’t have immunity, he or she will be nothing more than a ceremonial president, rarely having the courage to do what has to be done for our country and to make our country great again. This is not what our Founders had in mind at all. This is not what they wanted to think about. This not where they wanted us to be. The founders wanted the president to have immunity so the president can feel free to make decisions. Hopefully they’ll be great decisions. But whether they are or not, a president of the United States has to have immunity.”

Trump is apparently unaware that every president prior to him was not hampered in the least in their decision making by this made up obstacle. And he doesn’t bother to provide any evidence that the Founders were worried about it either. It’s a weak concept that he made up – or more likely one of his sleazy attorneys made up – to get him off the hook. However, about an hour and a half later, Trump posted another video that completely contradicted the first one…

“At what point are the actions of a sitting president, using lawfare and weaponization against his opponent for purposes of election interference, considered illegal? I believe, as do various highly respected legal scholars, that “crooked” Joe Biden has long since crossed over that very sacred threshold. He is a criminal. He is a horrible president. He is the worst president in the history of the country. And the only way he thinks he can get elected is to take me to trial, take me to court, city, state, and federal. They control them all. All of these cases you read about are “crooked” Joe Biden’s case because he can’t put two sentences together. He can’t do anything. So they weaponize government and they take me to court on bullsh*t. So we are going to win. We are going to win big. We’re gonna go through these horrible Biden trials. And the end of the day, November 5th, everyone’s coming out to vote for Trump.”

So according to Trump, all presidents must have total immunity. Except, of course, for President Biden, who Trump claims is acting illegally, even though he previously insisted that that isn’t possible for a president. Trump went on to smear Biden saying that “He is a criminal. He is a horrible president. He is the worst president in the history of the country.” In Trump’s twisted mind his opponents can never be merely wrong or have a different opinion. They are always the worst of all time of whatever he is accusing them of.

What’s more, Trump disgorges his tiresome and baseless lies that Biden is an evil genius who controls every lever of power, city, state, and federal, despite being unable to “put two sentences together.”

Trump closes by dismissing the charges against him with a bit of profanity that his glassy-eyed cult followers love so much. Then he expresses confidence that he will ultimately prevail simply by the virtue of his god-given superpowers. Once again, he doesn’t offer any coherent defense via innocence.

A little while later, Trump posted a comment that elaborated on his assault on the judicial public servants he believes are tormenting him…

“Crooked Joe Biden and his crew of Hacks and Thugs, led by Merrick Garland and Deranged Jack Smith, are working overtime to try to illegally intimidate and harass respected Federal Judge Aileen Cannon. They are calling her terrible names.”

It was thoughtful of Trump to praise Judge Cannon, the obviously biased Trump toady who is doing everything she can to shield Trump from accountability. And there is a perverse irony in his complaint that some unnamed persons have been “calling her terrible names.” How dare they? He’s probably upset because that’s his thing. Anyone else throwing around Trump-style infantile insults is stealing his identity and infringing on his anti-intellectual property. Not that anyone is actually doing that – or would want to. It’s just another outlet for his obnoxious animosity.

Trump Casts Himself as ‘a Modern Day Nelson Mandela’ While Lashing Out at All of His Judges

The diagnosis of Donald Trump as a malignant narcissist only begins to paint the picture of precisely how distorted his image of himself is. Yes, he is a sociopath who regards himself as a perfect specimen of humanity. And yes, he believes he is infallible and deserving of total adulation from the entire world. And yes, he couldn’t care less about anyone other than himself.

Donald Trump WTF

However, even that chilling depiction of Trump doesn’t go far enough to accurately describe his nefarious neuroses. He has crossed much farther into the domain of dementia than mere narcissism can explain. And the proof of his mental maladies are frequently apparent in his own raving commentaries in speeches and on his posts to his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social.

SEE THIS: DARK BRANDON STRIKES AGAIN: Biden Drops Proof of Trump’s Mental Meltdowns on Truth Social

On Saturday morning Trump unleashed a stream of outrage at his being held to account by the law for his multitude of crimes. And true to form, he displayed his hysterically unhinged view of a world that he fears is dead set on destroying him. Of course, he couldn’t possibly be responsible for his legal tribulations, despite his having blatantly broken numerous laws and bragged about it.

Trump’s rambling and rancid remarks were an opus that chronicled the offenses thrust upon him by every judge presiding over his trials. And naturally, Trump cast himself as the victim. For someone who pretends to be a monument of manhood, he sure whines about his perpetual victimization a lot. His Saturday morning mewling began with a general attack on the judicial system that he believes is persecuting him, asking…

“How many Corrupt, Biased, Crooked Joe Biden-‘Protection Agency’ New York Judges do I have to endure before somebody steps in?”

To answer Trump’s question…How about maybe “at least one.” Since there currently is not a single “Corrupt, Biased, Crooked Joe Biden-‘Protection Agency’ New York Judge” presiding over any of his cases, his question is impudent and inane. And who does he think should “step in” to rescue him? The Justice League?

Trump went on from there to take a swipe at the judge who presided over the case that found him liable for the defamation and sexual assault of writer E. Jean Carroll. Trump wrote that…

“I had New York Federal Judge, Lewis Kaplan, with a woman who I never knew, and had nothing to do with, until she sued me for ‘defamation.'”

Trump seems to be determined to tack on more judgments against him for defaming Carroll. He has already been been found liable twice, escalating his expenses from $5 million to $88 million.

Moving along, Trump followed that up with an attack on the judge overseeing his financial fraud fraud case, wherein he was ordered to pay $454 million in restitution. He yammered that…

“Then, of course, we have Arthur Engoron, a total lunatic, whack job, who ruled that I should pay an almost $500 Million Dollar ‘fine’ for having done nothing wrong.”

Obviously, the judgment was not for his “having done nothing wrong.” It was for his having been found to have deliberately falsified his financial records and misrepresented them to banks and other financial institutions in order to get better deals and unlawfully reduce his tax liabilities.

The next target on Trump’s hit list was Judge Juan Merchan, who he complained was “not allowing me to talk [and] is taking away my First Amendment Rights, he’s got me GAGGED.” If only. The gag order Merchan issued was in response to Trump’s repeated attacks on people involved in the case, including the families of the Judge, prosecutor and witnesses. He wrote that…

“Now, we have Merchan, who is not allowing me to talk, thereby violating the Law and the Constitution, all at once.”

Clearly Trump has no idea what the law or the Constitution say about any of this. And he wouldn’t care if he did know. His modus operandi is to violate the law when it suits him, and he has explicitly called for “terminating” the Constitution.

SEE ALSO: Trump Doubles Down on His Constitution Bashing and Misquotes Himself to Gaslight His Cult

Trump closed by elevating himself to the status of martyr, saying that…

“If this Partisan Hack wants to put me in the ‘clink’ for speaking the open and obvious TRUTH, I will gladly become a Modern Day Nelson Mandela – It will be my GREAT HONOR. We have to Save our Country from these Political Operatives masquerading as Prosecutors and Judges, and I am willing to sacrifice my Freedom for that worthy cause.”

Sure. Because Trump is exactly like Nelson Mandela who spent 28 years in prison for fighting for the rights of the Black citizens of South Africa. Trump, however, is fighting only for his right to break any laws that he wants with impunity. How is anything that he is whining about beneficial to anyone but himself? And yet, He has literally demanded that he be given “total immunity” for any wrongdoing.

SEE THIS: Felonious Punk Trump Demands ‘TOTAL IMMUNITY’ – Even for Acts that ‘CROSS THE LINE’

That is the essence of Trump’s dementia. He has delusions of grandeur, combined with a messiah complex. He views any perceived wrong imposed on him as a universal assault on all of mankind. His persecutors must be eliminated, and the world must not only agree with his complaints, but must drop everything and come to his rescue. And he will continue to whine about it until he gets his way.

Fox News and the GOP Are Now Dreaming of ‘Weaponizing’ the Justice Department Against Biden

Donald Trump’s MAGA Republican Party and its Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, deserve some “credit” for one thing: They have an inexhaustible supply of the mindless bullheadedness required to persist in pushing preposterous pseudo-legal smear campaigns despite having lost every attempt to spread their lies and malice.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, GOP, Elephant

Republicans in the House of Representatives have spent more than a year “investigating” President Biden and his family, searching desperately for any shred of evidence that he committed some unarticulated crime. And despite having the power of the majority in the House, they have come up empty every time. Even worse, their own witnesses have testified that Biden has never done anything remotely illegal or impeachable.

SEE THIS: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

None of that, however, has dissuaded them from their malicious mission to denigrate Biden and his family, and to subject them to vicious personal attacks without any basis in reality. And naturally, Fox News is right beside them to buttress their lies and defamation.

On Wednesday morning, Senior Fox News Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, interviewed Rep. James Comer (R-MAGA), chair of the House Oversight Committee. And undeterred by the utter lack of any new or evidence or testimony, they resumed wallowing in the sort of dishonesty that resulted in Fox News having to pay $787 million for lying about election fraud. Bartiromo began with a question that included her own obvious bias…

Bartiromo: What else can you do get some accountability after all of this information that you say you’ve dug up?
Comer: I think the two best options moving forward are obviously criminal referrals and then impeachment. Impeachment is still on the table. There’s still an overwhelming majority of Republicans that agree with me that Joe Biden has committed impeachable offenses. Now our confidence level in the Senate is very low, but at the end of the day the criminal referrals are something that I believe – if we don’t have a Department of Justice today, hopefully in a year we will have a Department of Justice that can hold him accountable. But we’re gonna have the tools in place to hold this family accountable for the criminal wrongdoing that they have committed one way or the other.

Virtually every word of Comer’s reply is untrue. He has no path forward for impeachment, or he wouldn’t be resorting to criminal referrals. And he has no path forward for criminal referrals because their is no evidence of any crime, and the Department of Justice will surely laugh it off. Furthermore, Comer does not have an “overwhelming majority of Republicans” on his side or he would have brought it to the House floor for a vote.

What Comer is actually announcing is that he expects Trump to “weaponize” the Justice Department (something that Trump and the GOP regularly whine about) to prosecute his political opponent if he were to reoccupy the White House. Which would be peculiar since Trump insists that presidents have “total immunity” from any criminal prosecution.

SEE ALSO: Is Trump Now Saying that Presidents Do Not Have ‘Total Immunity’ – Or Just that Biden Doesn’t?

Apparently Fox News and Comer disagree with Trump. And Trump will disagree with himself if the opportunity arises, because he couldn’t care less about being consistent or even rational. The only thing Trump ever cares about is whatever he can bend to his self-interest at the moment.

Of course, none of this comes to pass if Biden is reelected. In which case, Comer’s “two best options” are losers before they even leave the gate. Which is a situation that he should be familiar with by now, considering all the losing he has suffered through so far.

Trump Attacks Judge’s Daughter in Wild, Whiny, Rambling Rant, After Gag Order Was Issued

The devolution of Donald Trump continues apace as his criminal trials proceed toward an inevitable conclusion of guilt on at least some of his 88 felony charges. And despite the slow progress, Trump’s desperation is accelerating, driving him ever deeper into a fits of utter panic that are evident in his deteriorating mental state.

Donald Trump Angry

Throughout his legal tribulations, Trump has focused intensely on disgorging his hostility toward the justice system and the public servants fulfilling their civic duties. His defense seems to be solely limited to viciously maligning everyone involved in prosecuting him. Even to the point of abandoning any effort to argue that he is innocent. In fact, Trump’s primary defense is not that he didn’t do what he’s been charged with, it’s that he’s allowed to do it under some imaginary immunity privilege.

On Wednesday morning Trump took to his grossly overvalued social media scam, Truth Social, to mete out more punishment to his perceived enemies. Although this time it comes after he has been slapped with his third gag order aiming to forestall his threats and harm incitements.

Unfortunately, Trump doesn’t appear to care who gets hurt. So he is lashing out not just at his usual targets (judges, prosecutors, witnesses), but also the daughter of the Judge who is in no way affiliated with the case. In a series of posts, Trump wrote that

“Judge Juan Merchan, who is suffering from an acute case of Trump Derangement Syndrome (whose daughter represents Crooked Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff, and other Radical Liberals, has just posted a picture of me behind bars, her obvious goal, and makes it completely impossible for me to get a fair trial) has now issued another illegal, un-American, unConstitutional ‘order,’ as he continues to try and take away my Rights. […] their Hacks and Thugs are tracking and following me all across the Country, obsessively trying to persecute me, while everyone knows I have done nothing wrong!”

Trump’s infantile attacks on both the Judge and his daughter are utterly without merit. There is nothing prohibiting her from having her own life, speaking her own mind, and pursuing her own career. None of what she has done has any effect on Trump’s trial, or his rights. And if he is worried about being “followed,” perhaps he should just refrain from committing any more crimes in public.

Trump continued whining that

“The Judge’s daughter is allowed to post pictures of her ‘dream’ of putting me in jail, the Manhattan D.A. is able to say whatever lies about me he wants, the Judge can violate our Laws and Constitution at every turn, but I am not allowed to talk about the attacks against me, and the Lunatics trying to destroy my life. […] Maybe the Judge is such a hater because his daughter makes money by working to ‘Get Trump,'”

That’s right. The judge’s daughter is allowed post pictures of him. And the D.A. is allowed to present his case. Notice that Trump cannot cite any alleged “lies” by the D.A. or violations of the law by the Judge, or any proof that the Judge or his daughter profited from any anti-Trump activities. And it is Trump who destroyed his own life by choosing to engage in heinous crimes and declining to offer any coherent defense.

Trump concluded by impotently demanding that “The Judge has to recuse himself immediately.” But his reasoning is preposterous and dangerous. Judge Merchan’s daughter is not involved in this case in way. And there is no hint of evidence that she has any influence over her father’s stewardship of the case. However, she does become the target of Trump’s famously violent cult followers. Which is why the gag order was issued in the first place.

There is some debate as to whether or not this gag order applies to the Judge or his daughter. But it his ranting is unarguably malicious and potentially harmful. It’s appalling that Trump can make these ludicrous and defamatory allegations without consequence. He is insisting that any familial relationship is grounds for recusal. But he obviously doesn’t feel the same way about Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who has personally engaged in unlawful acts that were connected to cases that her husband was ruling on.

Of course, nobody is going to be surprised by Trump’s hypocrisy. It’s built into his DNA. As a textbook example of a malignant narcissist, Trump will twist everything into an unrecognizable distortion of reality that conforms to his delusional perspective. It’s too bad that in doing so he puts the lives of other innocent people in jeopardy. Hopefully the rational actors in the courts will put a stop to that by strictly enforcing the gag orders.

UPDATE: Trump’s charge that Judge Merchan’s daughter posted a picture of him behind bars – and his ridiculous assertion that that means that the case is irreparably tainted and the judge must recuse himself – appears to be false. Making it just another lie perpetrated by Trump and his cult cohorts.

Is Trump Now Saying that Presidents Do Not Have ‘Total Immunity’ – Or Just that Biden Doesn’t?

For the first time in history America has a former president who has been indicted civilly and criminally for acts taken that breach the principles and/or laws of the nation. He has already been found liable for financial fraud, defamation, and sexual assault. And he has at least 88 felony charges still pending.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

In response to these unprecedented acts of misconduct, Trump has embarked on a relentless smear campaign against prosecutors, judges, courts, the Justice Department, and of course, President Biden. As with every allegation ever made against him, Trump dismisses them by crying “witch hunt” and “hoax,” and by maligning the public servants that he perceives as his enemies. But perhaps the most overwrought whine that Trump has been employing is his belief that some amorphous authority grants him “total immunity” for any crimes that he has committed.

Trump spends more time lamenting his pathetic victimhood than he does asserting his alleged innocence. Therefore, he needs an immunity defense in order to avoid the consequences of his criminality. He insists that no president can make a decision without being indemnified, for fear of being held accountable by the law. Never mind that 45 of the other 46 presidents in American history have not needed that exemption from prosecution.

Trump has never been able to cite a legal justification for his claim to absolute immunity. Although his attorneys did argue in court that even if a president were to have a political foe assassinated, he could not be prosecuted. Which is a peculiar argument for them to make while Biden is currently sitting in the White House.

Trump’s license to break the law, however, has just been thrown into legal limbo by his latest remarks on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. In a pair of comments he is now categorically contradicting himself. In the first one Trump wrote that…

“At what point are the actions of a sitting President, using LAWFARE against his opponent for purposes of Election Interference, considered ILLEGAL? I believe, as do various highly respected legal scholars, that Crooked Joe Biden has long since crossed over that very sacred threshold!!!”

So Trump is now conceding that actions taken by a president can, in fact, be “considered ILLEGAL,” and therefore prosecuted. Which is consistent with his prior assertions that Biden should be jailed for imaginary offenses that exist only in Trump’s twisted mind. But Trump wasn’t through. He also posted that…

“People must continue to speak of, and remember, that the Engoron number of $450,000,000 for doing absolutely NOTHING WRONG is a big part of the crime being perpetrated against me by Crooked Joe Biden and his political Hacks and Thugs.”

Here Trump is charging that rulings made by an independent judge are actually “a big part of the crime being perpetrated against me by Crooked Joe Biden.” So once again, he is conceding that presidents are not immune from prosecution for crimes after all. Consequently, prosecutions of Trump are legitimate and warranted.

No one should be surprised that Trump is exhibiting a heaping helping of hypocrisy. In his mind his recent accusations of crimes are entirely consistent with his past invocation of immunity. Because in his mind that immunity is only valid for ex-presidents named Trump. Like everything else in the Cult of Trump, he is afforded the privileges of the Dear Leader, and his critics are cast into the lake of fire. That is, after all, how cults work.
