Today was a landmark occasion. Special Counsel Jack Smith gave a succinct, two-minute discussion on the indictment of Donald Trump and how important this was for the rule of law. He mentioned that “there is only one set of laws” in this country, equally applicable to all. If you missed seeing Smith’s live appearance, you missed seeing a man who was calm, composed and clear eyed. He spoke clearly in measured tones and was balanced and self assured. He inspired confidence.
Within minutes of Mr. Smith’s comments, Truth Social began erupting with the same childish, ugly insults that we have all learned to associate with both Trump and his social media site.
“Deranged” “crazy.” Neither Jack Smith nor Joe Biden have been indicted — let alone twice in the past three months AND with other legal cases hanging fire.
And it continued.

There is no original observation to be made here, merely more reiteration of what you already know about Trump. You know what a child Trump is. Here’s what an adult looks and sounds like.
