Trumpty Dumpty decided to put himself back together again this morning after a New York court ruling put him out of business in that state yesterday. So of course he had to rally the troops. It is as you would expect. Trump claims all legal actions against him are politically motivated and he’s innocent. Plus, the stupid argument that got five of his lawyers sanctioned for being “frivolous” is the rock that Trump is standing on, i.e. that a disclaimer clause allows him to commit fraud, in essence. It does not. This demonstration is to impress the base and raise desperately needed cash, nothing more. Let’s see if the grandmas will cut loose some of their Social Security check for this.
He doesn’t know the difference between “accepted” and “excepted” but that’s right on course.
It was county assessment of market value.
It was not a judge's opinion.

And that is exactly the case. Trump survives to rule MAGAdonia because they believe his gaslighting without question, when the plain facts are right there, available to anybody who looks. They don’t want to look. They want to blindly follow.
Since the Trump family & Ted Cruz want to lie about the judge’s ruling, here is the relevant part. The judge did not rule that MAL is worth $18 million. The judge just noted that Trump claim it is worth $1.5B is preposterous, and noted it’s assessed value for taxes was $18-27M. pic.twitter.com/lHtRaXttC4

There it is, that’s where the judge got the figure from. So evidently the County Assessor is in on the plot against Trump. What else can we conclude? The raving continues.
This is Donald Trump’s version of the law. If I screw you, it’s your fault, because you should have known I was going to screw you and done something about it. And that makes sense actually. It’s no coincidence that the one and only piece of poetry that we know Trump likes is the poem about a snake who bites the person that helps it survive. “You knew I was a snake when you took me in.” Interesting philosophy of life, that, “I get to phuque you, unless you figure out first that that’s what I’m about to do.” Very life affirming and humanitarian, eh what?
So here you have an obviously corrupt and politically motivated NYS AG and judge, making property value and financial assessments with absolutely ZERO knowledge of WTF they are talking about! Both are feckless in their current lanes, but even worse, the judge, reliedcon the AG's…

it ends “assessments instead of relying on experts (those who understand Commercial RE and Luxury REOO valuations), testimony, so the judge simply made a ruling of guilty! It doesn’t get any more glaringly corrupt than that!” Umm…’scuse me, I think that the County Assessor is trained in property valuation. That’s basically the job, that’s why it’s called “assessor.” But this is MAGA reasoning, and this guy will hit a polling place and vote for this fascist criminal lunatic to return to the White House. This is the mental illness in our country right now and it is frightening.
If this was only a matter of a substandard candidate, that would be one thing. But Trump’s reelection is literally the inception of fascism in this country, should it occur.
And don’t think that Trump wasn’t mixed up in some shady stuff. Here’s a link to a 2019 story about one of Trump’s bankers hanging himself in his Malibu home. Apparently he decided that it was better to hang at home in Malibu than do it in prison ala Jeffrey Epstein.
A former Deutsche Bank executive who reportedly signed off on some of the institution’s unorthodox loans to Donald Trump killed himself in his Malibu home on November 19. Thomas Bowers, the onetime head of Deutsche Bank’s American wealth-management division, where he oversaw Trump’s private banker, committed suicide by hanging, according to Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office. Bowers was 55.
Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank—which lent him around $2 billion after most other institutions had forsaken him for his history of defaults and bankruptcies—has come under investigation by two Congressional committees and the New York Attorney General, who are hoping the bank can shed light on Trump’s elusive finances, according to the New York Times. At one point, Bowers had a close connection to those finances.
Rosemary T. Vrablic, a managing director at Deutsche Bank who became Trump’s private banker in 2010 after being introduced by her client, Jared Kushner, reported directly to Bowers. Vrablic reportedly helped Trump secure loans from her bank, which Bowers approved—including more than $100 million to buy his Doral resort in Miami—even after Trump and Deutsche had to settle messy litigation over a Chicago loan that went bad.
Wait, what’s that the lady said? A loan in Chicago “went bad?” And there was “messy litigation?” So, you mean, Trump isn’t being entirely truthful when he said there were never any defaults? Hmmm….interesting. And so is this.
Bowers isn’t the first Trump-connected Deutsche exec to commit suicide. In 2014, Deutsche derivatives analyst William S. Broeksmit, who reportedly had links to Trump and Russia, hung himself from a dog leash at his home in London.
Sweet Jesus on a bagel. This is getting out there. And here’s where it gets scary.
If the disclaimer clause was “ironclad” they wouldn’t be in court in the first place. But what I find is scary is that Trump is flat out saying that the judge has it in for him personally and that’s all this is about. That’s not all that this is about. The way the law is adjudicated and the way Trump twists and distorts reality in fantastical fashion are two different things. One of Trump’s lawyers argued that the square footage of an apartment could be a subjective measure and the judge replied, “That is a fantasy world, not the real world.”
Trump lives in a fantasy world, not the real world. And via the medium of television, which is a fantasy world, he became the pied piper and ruler of a sect which is not only fantasy and conspiracy theory oriented, but dangerous. Ask the people who followed his tune to Washington, D.C. on January 6 and are now doing time.
But what is sobering is that like any cornered rat, like any wounded animal, he’s becoming more dangerous. Is anybody going to address this, or are we going to read more stories about Joe Biden’s sneakers and pretend everything is hunkey dorey?
