Trumpy

 Religious liberty now trumps anti discrimination laws.

The way I see it, and I could be wrong, but Trump has one chance to get out of the slam and that is to get elected. He is trying to nullify the Grand Jury investigation in Atlanta and waylay and postpone the Mar a lago investigation indefinitely. He is using raw political power, hoping to take the Atlanta case to the politically favorable Georgia Supreme Court.

Yesterday he engaged in some good old fashioned apple polishing, once again heaping praise on the one jurist who can impede the Florida investigation, Judge Aileen Cannon. She has delivered for him before.

Former President Trump praised the judge overseeing his classified documents case as his legal team seeks a postponement of his trial in Florida.

Trump’s motion for a continuance of the trial, filed last Monday, awaits a decision by Judge Aileen Cannon, an appointee of the former president who presided over his initial challenge to the FBI search of his Florida home.  

Asked on “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News whether he believes the judge will grant the motion, Trump said he did not know.

“I know it’s a very highly respected judge. A very smart judge, and a very strong judge,” Trump said.

When host Maria Bartiromo noted that Trump appointed the judge in the case, Trump said, “I did, and I’m very proud to have appointed her.”

“But she’s very smart and very strong, and loves our country,” Trump said. “We need judges that love our country so they do the right thing.”

Hey, it worked once.

Trump dream -

Donald Trump's aide says to him, "Sir, I had a dream you got your parade. It was miles and miles long winding through Washington DC. Joyful Americans lined the route, literally in the millions. People were laughing, cheering, playing in the street. You were riding in the most beautiful carriage."

Trump asks, "Was I happy?"

The aide answers, "I don't know, sir. The casket was closed."

Is Trump now making up laws?
