Together with his felony trial lower than every week away, Stephen Colbert mocked Trump’s efforts to delay the case.

Colbert mentioned:

Trump’s legal professionals argued that the previous president wouldn’t get a good trial as a result of the jury pool has been polluted by information protection of Trump’s different latest instances. So are you saying members of the jury can’t have seen any information about Donald Trump’s crimes? His crimes are the information!

I don’t perceive. Who would that depart? “Your honor, it’s only fair that our client be judged by an impartial jury who know nothing about the events in America over the last nine years. Might I recommend 12 confused men who were dropped off in a forest as infants and then raised by wolves, or, if they’re not available, could we acquire some clone babies that have been rapidly aged in some sort of machine and then released into the jury box? Oh? Oh, they think he’s guilty too? Okay.”

Trump’s change-of-venue request wasn’t the one determined stunt he pulled. He additionally tried suing the choose. Sure, it’s bizarro court docket! The defendant is suing the choose! The bible’s swearing on the bailiff! The gavel’s banging everybody! I consider that’s certainly one of Stormy’s films. The gavel’s banging everybody! The lawsuit challenges the gag order Choose Merchan positioned on Trump to cease him from verbally attacking witnesses, jurors, and others, together with, that is vital, the choose’s daughter, who Trump attacked on social media. Trump has additionally referred to as on Choose Merchan to recuse himself, alleging bias. Sure, the choose has to recuse himself as a result of Trump attacked the choose’s household.


The argument from Trump’s legal professionals is principally that the ex-president has dedicated too many crimes in Manhattan to get a good trial, so Trump wants his trial moved to someplace that’s much less conversant in his historical past of felony exercise.

Stephen Colbert was right. Trump is determined. The failed former president didn’t actually consider that he would ever stand trial, and why ought to he?

Trump is an individual who has gotten away with all the pieces for his whole left and has by no means been held accountable, so it should be surprising for him to be dealing with penalties for his actions.

Defendant Trump will solely develop extra determined because the accountability is coming and he appears powerless to cease it.
