33. I think that he will deliberately push the envelope hard

Apr 14

in the courtroom trying to force the judge to take disciplinary action that will build up the martyr image.

I don't know what the judge's disciplinary options are, but I think that he could remove Trump to a separate room where he could watch but not respond. He would need to have speaking access to his attorneys, but could be cut off from verbal disruptions of the trial. Also, no phone, tablet, or laptop access so that he can't try to film or stream parts of the trial, or post commentary on it while it is ongoing.

He will, of course, protest any and all restrictions on him, but some will be necessary.

I wonder if there will be room for spectators besides the press.

But will they be frequent enough? Maybe that's what he's truly worried about. Chakaconcarne Apr 15 #48
I see what you did there. SergeStorms Apr 14 #15
Don't like the word "flounce". When you weigh around 375 lbs, "flouncing" is not on the menu. Plodding or blustering, ok jaxexpat Apr 14 #24
