That’s some team of lawyers Donald Trump has! According to MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin, Trump’s attorneys were shocked that Trump’s New York fraud case isn’t turning out in their favor.
Rubin explained that Trump’s attorneys wanted the Judge to end the trial immediately — and were shocked when the Judge did not do that. “That’s honestly what they expected to happen. And they honestly seemed surprised.” Rubin also compared the Trump fraud trial to the trial in the film “Legally Blonde.”
If you’ve seen this movie, you are well aware of the ending, which was one for the legal books. “Today was a bit like watching Legally Blonde,” Rubin told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. Rubin also said perhaps Trump’s lawyers thought they could get the case shut down — immediately as Legally Blonde’s s trial was shut down.
There is a big difference, though. In Legally Blonde, the person on trial is innocent. Donald Trump is not. There are also reports that infighting has hit Trump’s lawyers. This is not surprising. They have a client whom they can’t control, a crazy one. So, of course, there are bound to be different thoughts on how to handle this wayward client.
I’d call this trial “Legally BLIND”, Not blond. Of course, Trump is convinced his hair is a shining shade of strawberry blonde even though it’s not. So there is that. Trump’s legal team best get their act together. The way things look now in this trial, it all spells bleakness — and guilt — for Donald Trump.
