Trump holds court AFTER court, slams Biden’s alleged role in trial, risks being tossed in jail for contempt

The 12-person jury and one alternate were seated Thursday in the historic, first-ever criminal trial of a former U.S. president, courtesy of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), who trumped up expired misdemeanor charges over hush money payments his predecessor opted not to pursue to charge Trump with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records — i.e bad accounting practices.

The presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee emerged from the courtroom to hold court before the media and began reading off a stack of articles featuring “legal experts” denouncing the trial — an effort the liberal media instantly dismissed because some of those cited appear on Fox News.

(Others named include The Wall Street Journal, National Review, NYMag, and “even the Rolling Stone.”

“I’m supposed to be in New Hampshire. I’m supposed to be in Georgia. I’m supposed to be in North Carolina, in South Carolina. I’m supposed to be a lot of places campaigning,” he said. “But I’ve been here all day on a trial that really is a very unfair trial. These are all stories, this is from the last few days.”

“‘Bragg crosses the Rubicon in indicting Trump,” Trump said, reading one headline. “‘The whopping outrage in Trump’s indictment’… It’s a whopping outrage and it is an outrage. Everybody is outraged by it,” he continued. “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.”

“It’s political… and it’s a shame. I am sitting here for days now, from morning until night in that freezing room. Everybody was freezing in there! And all for this. This is your result. It is very unfair,” the former president said. “The whole world is watching this hoax. You’ve got a DA who is out of control. You have a judge who is highly conflicted.”

Turning his attention to President Biden, Trump alleged that the president is “in charge” and said his “top people are here, working with the DA’s office to make sure everything goes right.”

“He’s the one who should be on trial,” Trump said of Biden. “He’s a crook. You’ve got a crooked president. He should be on trial with all the stuff he has done and his family.”

Trump concluded, “It really is a shame. This country is devolving into a Third World Country.”
