Some legal experts have already said that out of the four Trumps who will be testifying in the New York civil fraud trial over the next week, Donald Trump Jr is the most likely to screw up on the stand and make a mess of things.
Why is that? Well, this video clip pretty much sums it up:

What does Donald Trump Jr’s meltdown about Ron DeSantis, heel lifts, and World War III have to do with his testimony? Well, nothing, and that’s the point. Junior is not well. Not even close. He’s liable to get on the stand at the trial and give testimony just as unhinged as what you see in the video above.
The real problem for Junior is that if he goes that far off script and gets that frazzled, he’s likely to end up accidentally confessing to things that he wasn’t supposed to admit. The rest of the Trump family had better hope that Junior can keep it together on the stand and stick to the script. The odds of that aren’t great.
