For Donald Trump, he is well-traveled in hate, betrayal, and insurrection. And all roads have led to where he is today — court — and what he wants.
Vengeance perhaps came out of the womb with Donald Trump and clung to him like a bit of a loony, shrieking imp. It is what he craves, day in, day out, no matter what. Vengeance is his best friend, always there for him when he needs it, always willing to get down in the gutter and FIGHT.
“Control him, or I will.” Trump’s time on the stand has been filled with vengeance. He can’t shut up. He can’t keep his voice down. And as all hell broke loose, The Judge in New York turned to his lawyer and said those words above.
“Control him, or I will.” What an epic humiliation for Donald Trump. This Judge also threatened to have Trump removed from the courtroom. Trump is not good at defending himself. Indeed, while on the stand, right in open court, Trump launched into scathing tantrums, positively crackling with hostility and vengeance plainly with him.
Answer the questions, the Judge said. Trump also remarked that he is confident the Judge would rule against him because he “always does.” Vengeance is a crummy emotion. I’m sure we’ve all had thoughts of vengeance once or twice.
But picture this person. Picture walking around with a vengeance in your heart EVERY DAY — Every moment of every day. Sleeping with vengeance. Waking up with vengeance. Letting it guide one’s every move.
Vengeance has eaten away at Mr. Trump, leaving nothing but illness — narcissistic illness. Nothing Trump did on the stand today should be a surprise. It would have been far more shocking had Trump been polite and cooperative.
“I beseech you to control him,” the Judge told Trump’s lawyers. “If you can’t I will.” One of Trump’s lawyers, Alina Habba, was also rebuked by the Judge. It was a mad day in a mad courtroom. And it will be a mad night for sure as Trump and Vengeance collude together, walk together to Truth Social and let out their suppressed anger at what happened in the courtroom.
Vengeance in the heart — 24 hours a day. What a sad, sad, pitful way to live. But this is Donald Trump, so I don’t feel any pity. All roads led him to this point and he could have stopped at any time. He didn’t. That is why he sits on that stand now.
