    And yet Ghouliani and Trumps other criminal thug lawyers do what they do best. That's not very reliable or reassuring consequence, especially when it doesn't even hurt the mob boss himself.

    So far, nobody has been disbarred in this situation, because nobody has said anything flat-out false. That's why they keep losing cases.

    Most of the actual lawyers in question are balking from Trump because they know these scurrilous lawsuits are going to be dismissed almost immediately which makes them look bad, they're probably very wary of whether Trump will actually be able to pay them, and Trump is likely ordering them to lie... rather barefacedly... right in front of a judge, which can have repercussions for the lawyer and the law firm.

    It will take very little for upcoming deaths to top the nasty spike we saw in August.
    The highest day recorded in August was 1,853 but it looks like a correction. The highest 7-day average around that time is a little under 1,200.

    Losing cases and having them tossed. When case gets tossed for being obvious load of bullshit, it SHOULD have consequences on those who wasted other peoples time with it, knowing it was bullshit.

    That's one of the problems, isn't it? Why are those almost immediately dismissed cases treated as "no harm done, it's cool", rather than have some consequence attached to wasting peoples time with what both sides know is, and was complete bullshit to begin with?

    I agree. Contempt findings would be a good start.

    It would be a small but good start, yes.

    people have to work or go to school. That's what Trump also says (demands) and does his anti-mask posturing for. You know that moment where he was relieved of COVID and made a display of taking his mask off.

    But if people have to go to work or school, they should do so safely, ie with a mask on.

    that is fine. The other poster though suggested people should stop going out altogether lately, which is my issue.

    I'm more distressed on what's happening now or what to believe in. Because Donald is still suggesting people forego the masks and go outside to resume their lives. The news, on the other hand, is signaling some kind of apocalypse at hand and condemning the ex-president to hell and back.

    So it's either slander or Donald is detached from reality.

    He literally said in an interview that he was lying to the people about it and it's worse than he was letting on.

    The guy literally said, "its like a miracle it will go away". And a million other things like that. If you aren't convinced hes detached from reality now, you never will be.

    if he really said that though, that would mean he is a mass murderer indirectly and should be in prison. People think he will go to prison somewhere down the line, but he's a billionaire so I don't know how that'd work out.

    Trumps personal hell is becoming poor and irrelevant.

    Which I hope does happen to him.

    He did really say that. There is no "if".

    He said it on the record, on a recorded conversation, with Bob Woodward, the same investigative reporter who published a ton of information about Watergate.

    Trump willingly spoke with Woodward for the interview.

    Listen to the audio for yourself.

    Not the autoplay video of CNN commentary at the top of the page. Pause that, scroll down a bit, raw audio files from the phone call are there.

    He did it to himself. I don't have much sympathy for him.

    It feels like Bidens quip in 2007 about how there were only three words Rudy mentioned in a sentence, a noun, a verb and 9/11, broke Rudy.

    Is that you slowly coming back to reality or are these cracks in your trolling?

    I love how Trump’s new reason for why this is all so unfair, is because Biden promised in the first debate not to declare victory until every vote was counted. ‘But he said he’d wait! He didn’t wait!’
