Trump blasts NYC judge outside courtroom: ‘Take a look at where he comes from’

Former President Donald J. Trump blasted New York Judge Juan Merchan who is presiding over the “kangaroo court” trial that has made a mockery of the judicial system.

Merchan’s political bias has been on full display in the “hush money” case involving porn queen Stormy Daniels where he has undermined Trump’s ability to defend himself on the ginned-up charges brought by Soros-backed Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, and the victim of the unprecedented lawfare persecution unloaded.

After the day’s court proceedings wrapped up, Trump spoke to reporters, slamming Merchan and suggesting that the judge is prejudiced against him.

Trump has been able to get around Merchan’s gag order by quoting from news reports and legal analysis, this time from Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett.

“‘This trial is now officially a sad and pathetic joke,’” Trump quoted Jarrett. “‘It’s a crime. Merchan and Bragg are the head clowns. It should be patently obvious to all that the leading Republican candidate for president is on trial not for what he’s done, but for who he is. Trump is the potential nemesis of the Democrats.”

Trump read Jarrett’s words noting that he is clearly loathed by both Bragg and Merchan, adding his own opinion about the judge whom he has called “corrupt” and “conflicted.”

“The judge hates Donald Trump,” Trump told the press. “Just take a look. Take a look at him. Take a look at where he comes from. He can’t stand Donald Trump. He’s doing everything in his power…”

Merchan was born in Bogota, Columbia.

“Judge Juan Merchan, who has thus far been the exact Conflicted Democrat Operative his Comrades expected, has a chance to take a real step toward rehabilitating both his Reputation and the Justice System of New York by dismissing the Biden Election Interference Witch Hunt brought by Soros funded D.A. Alvin Bragg,” Trump wrote on Truth Social before his latest day in Bragg’s show trial.

“Every serious Legal Expert and Scholar is unequivocally stating that the “prosecutors” have not come close to putting on a case, THERE IS NO CRIME, which means that the right thing to do is to END THIS SCAM NOW AND FOREVERMORE. It would be a Big, Bold, Beautiful, but Highly Unexpected, yet BRILLIANT, step toward Justice in New York, and our Nation as a whole!” Trump said.

Judge Merchan displayed an unusual emotional outburst on Monday, throwing a temper tantrum and clearing the courtroom after a terrible day for the prosecution when star witness Michael Cohen admitted that he stole money from the Trump organization.

Merchan boiled over during testimony from defense witness Robert Costello, a former legal adviser to Cohen who has previously described the disgraced ex-lawyer and convicted felon as a “serial liar.”

The former president also took to Truth Social to sum up Merchan’s proceedings in two words: “KANGAROO COURT!” Trump wrote on Tuesday morning.
