Trump’s lawyers, if they had any hair, when they began representing him, have probably torn their hair all out by now. Then again, he keeps going through lawyers like Lauren Boebert going through idiotic actions.
Trump’s lawyers keep begging him to stay quiet. Trump keeps ignoring them. It has reached a point that his Truth Social statements may result in a gag order imposed on him. If one is imposed, we all know how that will turn out. It will turn out the same was as when E. Jean Carroll won her defamation suit against Trump. Trump defamed her the next day and now Trump will be tried, next January, to determine how much in damages he will have to pay Carroll again. Gift that keeps on giving.
Trump did it again, this time to be interviewed by Kristin Welker in her Meet the Press premier. One thing about Trump, when in for it for a penny, he is just not in for it for the whole dollar he is in for it for all of Fort Knox.
Trump was questioned about the fact that he lost 60 court cases and that a number of his own lawyers told him that he lost the 2020 election. His response was that he did not respect them. Welker pushed him further.
“You called some of your outside lawyers — you said they had crazy theories. Why were you listening to them? Were you listening to them because they were telling you what you wanted to hear?”
Trump, in pure Trumpian manner, responded by not only throwing himself undrer the bus but the entire bus fleet,
“You know who I listen to? Myself. I saw what happened. I watched that election, and I thought the election was over at 10 o’clock in the evening. It was my decision. But I listened to some people. Some people said that.”
He basically said, on national tv, that he made the decision himself to contest the election, and, he did, resulting in January 6. Laurence Tribe, prominent Harvard constitutional law professor, put it best, saying that Trump,
“just threw his whole ‘following my lawyers’ advice’ defense under the bus No, let me correct that: not just under the bus but under a roaring, speeding, ginormous freight train.”
I should have sympathy for Trump’s lawyers, but they knew what they were in for.
