Joe Biden himself recognizes that there is a moral event horizon past which voters shouldn’t vote for a candidate, regardless of the other guy being a more accomplished rapist or génocidaire.

Now of course Joe would say that he is neither or those things, but the principle remains.

Trump was already president for four years.

A lot of people feel that they already know what 47’s term would be like.

The largest group who believe that his second term will be quite different is his own MAGA base. They believe that he will deliver on his promises. Most people left of Mitch McConnell do not.

Related fun - remember the time trump called for deporting his mother in law?

Melania herself lied on visa applications. She was in the United States professionally, not on a strictly personal basis.

There’s no statute of limitations on this. Citizenship can be revoked decades later for lying to get a visa and failing to disclose that lie when applying for citizenship. It usually only happens to criminals of the “war” or “organized” type, but still, it’s a hell of a plank to have in one’s own eye while calling out others.

Judge Merchan chided Trump’s lawyers for not objecting more during Daniels’ testimony—why? (self.Ask_Lawyers)

quote:

From CNN:

“The judge responded to their arguments saying, “For some unexplained reason that I still don’t understand” there was no objection to certain testimony cited in the motion for a mistrial and again today.

Merchan specifically pointed to Daniels’ testimony about the trailer park, in which Daniels suggested Trump told her she would be stuck living in a trailer park before they had sex in 2006. The judge said he felt that was unnecessary and he objected himself.

Another example listed by Merchan was the testimony about Trump not wearing a condom. Merchan said he was surprised attorney Susan Necheles did not object.

“Why on earth she (Necheles) wouldn’t object to the mention of a condom I don’t understand,” Merchan said.”

What would the grounds for objecting be, and why is this seemingly such an obvious move that the judge is commenting on it?

quote:

None of it is relevant and it’s prejudicial. It’s basically character testimony. But it sounds like the judge is more taking issue with those statements being a basis for the motion for a mistrial when there was no objection at the time. Basically, you can’t be ok with the witness just saying whatever, and then afterwards say “oh but she shouldn’t have been allowed to say all that so you should just throw the case out.” If they didn’t like the testimony, they could have objected and it sounds like the judge would have gladly directed to witness and counsel to move on to something more relevant.

This is the among the most forceful ways you’ll ever hear a judge call an attorney a dogshit litigator.

It wasn't like done stylishly. And he handed it to me, and he said, this is from Arizona Attorney General. I still don't have the indictment," Giuliani said during a Sunday live stream with his co-host and girlfriend Maria Ryan.

Ted Goodman, Giuliani's spokesperson, told Newsweek in a statement on Sunday that "the mayor was served after the party and as he was walking to the car. He was unfazed and enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people, from all walks of life, who love and respect him for his contributions to society. We look forward to full vindication soon."
