Predict Trump's next line of defense


Címon, step right up and be Trumpís legal counsel. Get up and state the defense of your client.

Itís okay, you couldnít do worse than his own actual lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Tonight Iím going with:

ďWell, yes, he directed people to do illegal stuff, but you make it sound as if he did it because it was illegal. He didnít know any of that stuff was illegal. Heck, his own lawyer, Michael Cohen, told him it was legal. He didnít know any of that stuff was illegal and heís shocked to find out that his lawyers knew all that stuff was illegal and never said anything. So, you see, Trump couldnít have been doing anything illegal, since he didnít even know it was.

You know, in criminal law, the defendant has to have a menstrualia, or a menís room, or whatever the fuck the Latin phrase is for not having a guilty mind, heart, or anything else.Ē

And Iíd tell Trunp he could start tweeting about how he doesnít have menorrhea, or whatever.

1. It's all legal because I'm the President. I won so whatever I did ever is now legal.

 

I think it will go something like that.

2. Not sure what *he* will say...

but, if his lawyers are smart they'll go for an insanity defense.

That should be a slam-dumk for them.

3. If I were Trump's lawyer,

I would be committing a crime because I am not a lawyer.

But seriously, my defense would be as follows:

You have all seen what Trump has said, and done, for the past 2 years most intensively, but for his entire life.

Quite frankly members of the jury, my client is an idiot, has always been an idiot, and is incapable of behaving as anything other than the idiot he truly is.

As to your lawyer talk about mens rea, get rea(l), there is no mens.

7. Legally, there is no defense. The facts and the law are against him.

In such cases, lawyers advise that you pound the table. Which is exactly what they are doing.

11. He can't be impeached for anything he did before he was president.

And the president cannot obstruct justice because he oversees the justice department. That's like telling a boss he can't tell his direct reports what to do.

That is what I think is coming next...
