"Maybe he’ll run into Melania between now and then, but probably not more than one time? Or maybe she’s making herself even more scarce than usual? Probably should not get high hopes for “see wife.”"

Melania has probably fucked all the way off. Can you blame her?

Maybe it's the alcohol, maybe because I'm listening to Sun Ra, but the "list of items" made me crack up.

No matter the situation, Syphilis HAS to be in the spotlight (so people don’t forget him) .

By coincidence, April 15 is also the day that trump will not be paying his taxes again.

Cackled my way through this.

Many reasons I come here, but sussing out how many fucks Evan has left to give to this particular bit of bullshit- it occurs to me now- has the makings of an excellent drinking game

"between now and April 15 there are:

Eleven days.

Ten sleeps.

253 hours.

15,220 minutes.

913,194 seconds.

Probably like 56 real terrifying poops, considering his diet.

76,857,482 misspelled rage tweets on Truth Social."

Worst Barenaked Ladies cover ever... or possibly best.

"Most rational observers don’t think even Trump’s partisan hack Supreme Court will go down that road with him, so it’s probably pointless." I'm irrational enough to believe they never should have taken the case at all.

Expand full comment

Absolutely. The did him a solid by delaying the case even further, likely until after the election, regardless of the eventual outcome (which I agree/hope will be that they rule against him).

Expand full comment

So, when his other cases all come due after the election, because he's run out of either time or money or both, will the media call him former President Trump or failed presidential candidate Trump?

Can only pray that this trial drags into November, since PAB has to be in the courtroom for it all. We'll see if their tune changes and might want to expedite the conviction, so his ratings can surge and he can be out raging about how unfair and he never knew NY and its real estate, not his type.

An innocent person, as has been pointed out a trillion times, would have wanted everything to be over with quickly as possible.

Sometimes I wonder if Cannon truly is a fucking MAGA idiot. The alternative that occurs to me is that she knows perfectly well that once trials start, they go quickly, and she also knows quite well that Jack Smith will stomp Trump and his lawyers into pudding. That would put her in the position of having to pronounce sentence, and possibly imprison, a former and potential future SCOTUS, and she's willing to do anything and everything to avoid that.

In the end, I don't suppose her motivation matters. All that matters is that Smith find a way to get around her.

To be fair, even someone of Judge Qanon's rather strikingly limited intelligence presumably realizes that she cannot QUITE just hand him a crown and scepter without incurring negative consequences, but she's still puzzling out how close to that she can get without going over, like some horrible version of "The Price is Right".

Also, didn't this crime happen before Trump became God Emperor of Usa?

He has always been God Emperor of Usa.

Just saw a clip of a Kennedy ad using the theme from ''Golden Girls'' (thank you for being a friend).

Haha...Jack Smith made Cannon blink.

This cannon person somehow seems disingenuous to the whole blind justice precedent thing.

She almost acts as if she runs interference for Ttump or something. I wonder how this can be?

Expand full comment

from what I read, her ruling was full of implied butthurt about being called out.

She sees him as her ticket to SCOTUS

I'm going to go on national television and slam Judge Marchon's daughter, knowing FULL WELL that (of course) nothing is going to happen to me.

If he says anything, I'll do it again.

If I were being falsely accused and witch hunted , I’d want to go to trial immediately, but I’m a righteous good person and not an orange wannabe dick-tater (or taterdick?) It never ceases to amaze me how his Fox fans scream about trumped up charges and his supposed innocence, but not a one suggests he speed up things and go to trial before Election Day. It’s like they know he’s guilty

Oh, they don't care whether TFG is guilty or not. They just want him to get away with everything.

Also his $175mill bond was rejected for deficient paperwork. Not sure if he gets time to fix his homework or if he's judged not to have posted a bond at all and the seizures can begin.

Expand full comment

I would assume he's got to the end of the 10 day extension to get his bond in. After that?

Expand full comment

Ok, THAT'S fucking hilarious. You mean Habba fucked up his paperwork AGAIN???

Add in the plummeting value of his Truth Social BS shares, and Tucker's having a bad week.

Not Habba this time.

"Mr. Hankey" did not include the required information/documents about his financials.

No word on what sort of documentation of Ol' Stinky's financials might be required.

Expand full comment

Turns out the company needs to file financial statements that basically proves they have enough capital to actually make good on the bond if Trump loses.

Expand full comment

I assume no one mentioned that to Mr. Hankey when he said, "Sure."

Company is reportedly very under capitalized. Also not licensed to in NY. 😂
