In selling the severity of the lengths leftists will go against him, former President Donald Trump made an infamous comparison when he said he surpassed “Scarface.”

Days before a deadline to file a response to the Supreme Court related to his bid for immunity from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s Jan. 6 case against him, the former president took the stage in Reno, Nevada. While urging attendees to rally support at the Commit to Caucus event, Trump suggested the lawfare waged against him was well beyond that brought down on notorious gangster Al Capone.
“Did anybody ever hear of the great Alphonse Capone, Al Capone, great, great head of the mafia, right?” asked the 45th president, building up the point he was going to make.
“Mean, Scarface. He had a scar that went from here to here,” said Trump tracing a finger from his temple to his chin, “and he didn’t mind at all. But he was a rough guy.”
“Now, I heard he was indicted once — a couple of people told me a few times more — but I was indicted four times,” exclaimed Trump before furthering his point on how bad Capone was. “If he had dinner with you and if he didn’t like the way you smiled at him at dinner, he would kill you. You’d be dead. By the time you walked out of the nice restaurant, you would be dead. He got indicted once. I got indicted four times.”
“Over bullsh*t, I got indicted, bullsh*t,” said Trump of the 91 counts that had been brought against him across two federal and two state indictments.
Ahead of Wednesday’s deadline for the former president’s legal team to issue its response to Smith’s request for a writ of certiorari to the Supreme Court to accelerate the appeals process over Trump’s claimed immunity from wrongdoing over allegations related to Jan. 6 on account of his position as president, Trump’s team had filed a separate motion related to a lower court appeal by making a different notorious comparison.
Smith had sought to expedite the review of Trump’s appeal in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which the GOP 2024 frontrunner’s attorneys argued would force “round-the-clock” work “through the holidays, inevitably disrupting family and travel plans.”
“It is as if the Special Counsel ‘growled, with his Grinch fingers nervously drumming, ‘I must find some way to keep Christmas from coming. … But how?'” they stated, citing Dr. Suess’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Trump went on to add during his Sunday remarks, “Never forget: Our enemies want to take away my freedom because I will never let them take away your freedom. That’s what I do. They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you. And in the end, they are not after me. They’re after you. And I just happened to be standing in their way. I am in their way.”
