Donald Trump Keeps Swearing In Court

This morning my three-year-old son opened the cabinet in our kitchen and said, “f***, where are the banana chips?” My wife and I had a quiet laugh about it, trying not to read the behavior, but having no choice but to crack up for a minute. His voice is so tiny! It was very cute. We then explained that he shouldn’t say the word, even if mommy and daddy say it often. He’s three, but he understood. We’ll see if he says it again, but he’ll hopefully hold off.

My son wasn’t being petulant. Once he was told it was wrong, you could see the wheels turn in his brain. There was acknowledgment. It’s not a recurring problem where he must repeatedly be told not to do it. We don’t have to threaten him with a time-out or, even worse, a hefty fine. He’s a kid, not a former president and attempted insurrectionist on trial for campaign finance violations.

That description fits Donald Trump. Trump is currently on trial for paying hush money to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels leading up to the 2016 election. True to form, Trump can’t keep his f***ing mouth shut. Now, the judge is giving him another stern warning over his behavior. According to a transcript seen by Deadline, Judge Juan Merchan claimed he could hear Trump “cursing audibly” and warned his lawyer, Todd Blanche, over the behavior. “I understand that your client is upset at this point, but he is cursing audibly, and he is shaking his head visually and that’s contemptuous.” He continued, saying, “It has to[sic] potential to intimidate the witness and the jury can see that.”

You tell him, Judge Merchan! The judge told Blanche to tell Trump to clean up his act because he didn’t want to “embarrass him.” Okay. “You need to speak to him,” the judge said. “I won’t tolerate that.” It seems like you are tolerating it, Judge. There’s nothing more intimidating to a man like Trump than empty threats. Trump has already been fined $1000 for violating a gag order. That isn’t going to stop him. Scolding his lawyer will not stop him. Compared to normal folks, Trump is getting special treatment.

Many defendants in this country would not receive second, third, and fourth chances. A $1000 fine could break a “normal” person. They would have been thrown in jail several times already. It’s a completely different justice system. There are “normal” people, and there are entitled billionaires who respond to discipline worse than three-year-olds.
