Trump Loses It At Judge For Not Postponing Trial So He Can Attend Mother-In-Law’s Funeral

It’s a different day and more drama surrounding Donald Trump. The former president’s recent request to postpone a trial has become a talking point, reflecting the intricate blend of personal, legal, and political narratives that often surround him.

The saga began when Trump sought to delay a defamation lawsuit filed by E. Jean Carroll, citing the need to attend his mother-in-law’s funeral in Florida, but the only problem, his calendar showed that he was scheduled to attend a campaign rally on the same day as the funeral. Trump’s lawyers requested that Judge Lewis Kaplan who is overseeing the trial, postpone the trial to the following week because of the sudden death of Trump’s mother-in-law Amalija Knavs. Trump could not attend the trial in New York on Wednesday and Thursday because he would be traveling to Florida to attend the funeral. This revelation raised eyebrows and questions: Was the request for postponement purely out of familial respect, or were there other motives at play, perhaps even political ones?

Although Trump is not required to be at the trial, Donald had expressed interest in attending. Kaplan denied the request, however, and said that while the court “offers its condolences” to the Trump family, the trial would continue as scheduled.

Unsurprisingly, Trump’s response to the decision was filled with manic anger. He took to social media to express his displeasure, labeling the judge as biased and the trial as a politically motivated sham. This reaction is typical of  Trump’s aggressive style, especially when dealing with legal challenges and perceived opposition.

As we all know, Trump does not like to lose, but lose he did.  Let’s hope this trend continues in November.
