    Trump is a clown but he won’t be defending himself. I do expect some rather asinine conclusions and completely non-credible testimony from the defense but much like the lawyers that have abandoned Trump in the past, his attorneys have limits. They’re not nearly as “untouchable” as Trump has been and the kind of arguments Trump would want to make will land them in jail.

    I think the success of this trial will hinge on the evidence collected AND the professionalism of those involved in the case. The MAGAts won’t watch or won’t believe a single shred of evidence. This is for the benefit of those who still know how to form a rational thought.

      I highly doubt that one actually. It’s going to be a political circus, and they’re all about that. I wouldn’t be surprised if they weave every single movement, twitch, fart, or whisper he does into part of their lunatic conspiracy theory ecosystem, post about it on shitter as memes, or both.

        They will only see the clips that Faux News chooses to show them. Why watch a boring trial when you can tune in to your favorite talking head show to be told how you feel about the whole situation? You know, like a true free thinker!

      “Trump is a clown but he won’t be defending himself”

      When you’re on a budget, the emotional support clowns start looking real affordable and appealing
