I guess Donald Trump wants to go sit in jail and await trial. He certainly gives every indication of that. Or, he really wants a gag order, not just in the election interference case but also in the Trump Organization case. Or, maybe in all the cases. I’m sure his lawyers are fuming tonight, if they’ve looked at his Twit-X account. He posted the photo you see and here’s the tirade that accompanies it.
This is a repost from three days ago, with the addition of the picture. That is key. The original post on Truth Social didn’t have a picture accompanying it. This one does. I think it’s fair to speculate that Trump is IDing Judge Engoron as a MAGA target. He has been specifically instructed not to incite violence but here we are again.
And the Honorable Arthur Engoron will join the likes of Anthony Fauci, Mark Milley and countless other targets of Trump’s lunacy and he will have to get security to protect himself. This is fascist. Trump has already established a fiefdom of MAGA and he’s now using the Twitter/X platform to amplify his voice and target his enemies.
The comments in the thread are hateful and aggressive as you might expect.
He should be removed from the bench!

I don’t know if these people are keyboard warriors or if they pose a credible threat. But unfortunately, we live in the era of not only Trump but Elon Musk and Musk fired his election integrity team a few days ago. As to community moderation, I honestly don’t know if there are any guardrails left on this platform. And of course Trump feels that there are none, and he’s feeling invincible tonight, we can infer from him doing this.
Now this is interesting.
He needs to admit what his lawyer did and quit blaming people other than himself. Zillow has Mara la Go valued at $24 million. The only way it would be worth 100 times that amount perhaps is if it still held top secret documents along with nuclear documents. Those have been… pic.twitter.com/oNvpgtGf2A

If Habba’s office is that incompetent, that is shocking. I worked up plenty of cases for trial in my day and I assure you, all of these dates and deadlines are calendared and tickled (a term meaning reminders are posted) two and even three times. In any litigation department worthy of that descriptor nobody blows a basic deadline like this. No.Body. Habba is supposedly getting paid seven figures and if she doesn’t have somebody working for her that is capable of running a trial calendar, then she is a PR person, a talking head, and not an attorney. This is unheard of in the real world.
And there were more lunatic posts.
This is the most ludicrous decision ever made. The judge should be removed immediately. He obviously has zero knowledge of real estate and the finance industry. BANKS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING ASSET VALUES! PERIOD!

The MAGAs are missing the point. All that the judge did was quote the County Assessor. The County Assessor estimated Mar-a-Lago was worth between $18 million and $27 million. The judge in no way, shape or form did any kind of a valuation himself. Why would he? But Trump twists the facts and lies to make himself look like the victim and his lunatic sycophantic cult followers lap it up like a cat does cream.
Shades of January 6. This is exactly what was going on on Twitter that day. Lindell was talking crazy, Trump was inciting people, the entire gang was there. Jack Dorsey, the then-owner of then-Twitter took care of business and deplatformed the insurrectionists. Now they’re all back. And they’re targeting Trump’s enemies, in this case one of the judges.
Trump needs to be put behind bars to chill if he can’t stop doing this.
