Donald Trump is currently in more legal trouble than most of the United States population will ever see in their lifetimes, combined. Yet that has apparently done nothing to staunch the scandal-plagued ex-president’s incessant onslaught of attacks against anyone who dares to “come after” him, despite the fact that those attacks are only serving to get him into more and more trouble, creating a vicious cycle that it seems Trump will be in until the day he dies.
Today’s court hearing regarding his massive New York fraud trial was no exception to that rule.
Just literal minutes before the former US president was supposed to have his ass seated in the courtroom to begin his civil fraud trial in New York, Donald Trump was speaking to a gaggle of reporters just outside the courtroom, where he launched a downright nasty attack against New York Judge Arthur Engoron, the very same judge that Trump went into the courtroom to face just moments later.
Donald described Engoron as a “rogue judge” before accusing him of unfairly undervaluing the ex-president’s properties when he concluded that Trump had likely been committing financial fraud throughout his businesses for literal years and counting.

Of course, Trump couldn’t stop there, ensuring that his attack also caught New York Attorney General Letitia James, who was responsible for bringing the lawsuit against him in the first place.
“We have a racist attorney general who is a horror show!” Donald all but screamed at reporters outside the courtroom. “She ran on the basis of she was going to get Trump before she even knew anything about me!”
Just mere moments before he went inside, the former president concluded his unhinged attack by dubbing the entire fraud lawsuit against him a “scam and a sham.”
Donald’s onslaught of attacks against Judge Engoron in particular has been going strong for a few days now, beginning with Engoron’s determination that Trump was liable for the fraud as the head of the Trump Organization.
In addition to the civil trial now beginning in New York, Trump also faces a total of 91 different felony charges hailing from investigations by DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith and Fulton County, GA, District Attorney Fani Willis.
