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.
