Trump can't use a mobster's usual courtroom props. [View all]

You know what they are: An oxygen tank, a wheel chair, a doctor seated nearby, etc. (You saw it all in the movie "Casino".) He can't use any of them because it wouldn't fit with the image of him that he's cultivated with his followers. After all, Jesus didn't have an oxygen tank, a wheel chair, or any ancient medical assistance while he was dragging that cross.

You've been hoisted by your own petard, Donald. And while your followers look on in grief, sane people are relieved that you are finally being held to account for the first time in your life.

For the next two or three months, you are going to have to sit there with your mouth shut while others testify about who and what you are. And if you "lose it" and have an outburst, the judge can hold you in contempt of court, (and can even have you held in a jail cell for contempt of court if he so chooses).

Welcome to the real world, Donald. If you somehow win/steal the presidency in November, we will all live in fear of your revenge. If you don't/can't, win/steal it, you've got a lot more courtroom time ahead of you.

Hopefully, we will have a blue tidal wave this November that will exact an enormous price on you and your version of reality.
