This explains the Saturday, all day meltdown on Truth Social. Donald Trump was massively upset at how “unfair” he was being treated and went on about all the “time” and “expense,” like this was new information that trials at law were time consuming and costly. This had people raising their eyebrows and wondering what he was talking about. Does he know the sky is blue, or is that new information as well? And bear in mind, the day before, he was moaning about how Fox News used unflattering photos of him, how dare they?
And in fact there was something else stuck in Trump’s craw all day. The Daily Mail is reporting that odds are being taken about how much Trump weighs. He won’t have Ronny Jackson there to fudge for him and tell the world how he’s going to live another 130 years when he gets booked in Fulton County. This is going to be real. Uh oh spaghetti-ohs.
As the deadline for Donald Trump to surrender for booking in Georgia looms, online sportsbooks are going wild with proposition bets on everything from his tie color to his body weight at booking.
One bookmaker site, Antigua-based BetOnline, on Friday offered an over/under of 273.5 pounds for Trump’s weight upon his surrender to authorities in Fulton County, noted gambling news Instagram account TheJuice. […]
According to BetOnline employee Dave Mason, 77 percent of gamblers have taken the over bet on Trump’s weight so far, spurring the sportsbook to increase the total by eight pounds.
Trumpty is just going to have to do a Pinocchio kind of a deal here, except instead of his nose growing, he needs to gain about another 10-12 inches in height. Then he’ll have the BMI of an Olympic athlete. Maybe the bookies could make odds on that happening.
Other prop bets offered on BetOnline include whether Trump will be smiling in his Georgia mugshot.
Currently, the bookmaker heavily favors no mugshot smile, offering odds of 2-11 that the mugshot will remain dour.
On the subject of tie color, red is the favorite at 4-9 odds, or an implied probability of 69 percent. ‘No tie’ is the second favorite option at 17-4 odds, while ‘green’ offers the longest odds at 25-1.
Another online sportsbook, Curacao-based Bovada, is offering odds on whether Trump will be wearing a MAGA hat in his Georgia mugshot — an outcome listed on Friday at 25-1 odds.
He better be wearing a MAGA hat because you know he’s going to use this mugshot photo to fundraise. And he did well with the fake mugshot photo, so he might do very well indeed, with the real thing.
Or, maybe fundraising will boomerang on him and people are getting tired of being hit in the wallet.
We’ll know this week. As Kimberly Guilfoyle is so fond of predicting, “The best is yet to come.”
