    Hang on, isn't Trump claiming the president has total immunity to do that sort of thing anyway?

    Well I mean, they would never admit that they nuked Trump. They’d use his conviction as a handy “look at what the despicable libs did to him!” while conveniently not having to actually deal with Trump, claiming that their hands were tied. They could tell his sycophants “look at what the liberals did! You need to vote for us to get back at them for what they did to your good friend and ours, trump!”

    Again, not saying that’s actually likely. Even the internal admission of guilt is too much to expect.

    Attorneys for Donald Trump have sent a cease and desist letter to the filmmakers behind “The Apprentice” in an effort to block its U.S. sale and release. It warns the team behind the film not to pursue a distribution deal, according to two people who have read the letter. “The Apprentice,” which looks at Trump’s early years as a real estate developer and his relationship with Roy Cohn, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
    Donald is threatening to sue over the movie that was made about his sordid past.

    At a press conference in Cannes for “The Apprentice,” Abbasi responded to Trump’s legal threats. “Everybody talks about him suing a lot of people — they don’t talk about his success rate though, you know?” he said. He also offered to screen the movie for Trump, saying, “I don’t necessarily think that this is a movie he would dislike.”
    However the director does not seem very concerned. Glad someone is paying attention to the W/L columns for Donald's legal battles and not just the number of legal battles he's been engaged in.

    Wow, Donald can draw 25,000 in the Bronx! Impressive! That picture makes it look like there are tons of people there!



    Until you get the arial shots while Donald was speaking and see that, maybe, there are 1-2 thousand people there on a good day.

    While law enforcement told the New York Post that the crowd was between 8,000 and 10,000 people, The Daily Beast had a reporter in attendance, who estimated about 1,000 people were there.

    Trump has been infamously sensitive about his crowd sizes, particularly when side-by-side photos went viral comparing his meagre inauguration crowd to that of Barack Obama. Trump’s former White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, became a laughing stock for insisting that Trump had “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.”
    I think Donald is still very uneasy discussing the size of his crowds.

    Yep, NYPD confirmed there was less than 3500 there. Trump supporters are claiming 30k, just like the lie on the Wildwood New Jersey Rally.

    God I'd forgotten how much of a complete and total disaster of a Press Secretary Sean Spicer was.

    The most frustrating part about all of this is that they all know they're lying yet they don't care.

    His first official act as the press secretary was to lie about how big Donald Trump's.........crowd was. (LOL) I don't miss those days.

    They knew that they were lying, they also knew if they didn't keep lying they wouldn't keep their jobs. It almost makes it worse than the cultists who are just to stupid to understand reality. Willing to lie to the nation on a daily basis, in order to placate a man child, for nothing more than social status as a member of a presidential cabinet.

    Weird ABC7 deleted the YouTube video, but thankfully everyone is responding to the RNC tweet with screenshots of the tiny crowd of a few thousand, at most, while Donald was on stage speaking.

    Oh and yes, pro-Trump pages on social media are posting (and some now deleting) pictures of an Obama rally for years ago, with Obama clearly on stage, claiming it was Donald's Bronx rally.

    Biggest problem is that nobody in that image on stage, and nobody who would be on stage, is under felony indictment. Donald's rally featured at least three individuals under felony indictment on stage.

    Federal prosecutors on Friday asked the judge overseeing the classified documents case against Donald Trump to bar the former president from public statements that “pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents” participating in the prosecution.

    The request to U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon follows a false claim by Trump earlier this week that the FBI agents who searched his home in August 2022 were “authorized to shoot me” and were “locked & loaded ready to take me out & put my family in danger.”

    He was referring to the disclosure in a court document that was made public that the FBI, during the search, followed a standard use-of-force policy that prohibits the use of deadly force except when the officer conducting the search has a reasonable belief that the “subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person.”

    The policy is routine and meant to limit the use of force during searches. Prosecutors noted that the search was intentionally conducted when Trump and his family were away and was coordinated with the Secret Service. No force was used.

    “The Government’s request is necessary because of several intentionally false and inflammatory statements recently made by Trump that distort the circumstances under which the Federal Bureau of Investigation planned and executed the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago,” prosecutors on special counsel Jack Smith’s team wrote in asking that Cannon make a restriction on Trump’s statements a condition of his release pending trial.

    “Those statements create a grossly misleading impression about the intentions and conduct of federal law enforcement agents — falsely suggesting that they were complicit in a plot to assassinate him — and expose those agents, some of whom will be witnesses at trial, to the risk of threats, violence, and harassment,” they added.

    Defense lawyers have objected to the government’s motion, prosecutors wrote.

    Asked Thursday at an unrelated event about the claim that the FBI intended to use force against Trump, Attorney General Merrick Garland said: “That allegation is false, and it is extremely dangerous. The document that is being referred to in the allegation is the Justice Department’s standard policy limiting the use of force. As the FBI advises, it is part of the standard operations plan for searches. And in fact, it was even used in consensual search of President Biden’s home.”
    The government is requesting Donald be gagged and not make shit up about the FBI and law enforcement in his classified records theft case in front of Judge Cannon.

    Practically: He should just be fairly universally gagged in regard to his trial because he's proven himself incapable of not trying to threaten, intimidate, or otherwise attack anyone and everyone involved that he can from witnesses to court staff to prosecutors.

    But I'd be positively shocked if Judge Cannon, who is basically sitting at the defense table, will grant the request despite the fact that Donald is out here spinning dangerous lies about the FBI search of Maralago that are patently false given the objective reality of the situation - which was that the search was conducted while his family weren't even there, intentionally.

    Looks like Trump’s team is trying to lock all the actual libertarians out of their own convention and bring in his MAGA followers for when he speaks. Also hearing he may have secret service confiscate the squeaky chicken toys.

    The perfect storm. Yhe enigma of the Libertarian Party meeting maga. Give them credit, possibly the majority don't want him there.

    Background for people, the president of the Libertarians went full maga I guess so this is her big push.
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    Apparently to Trumpers, thats 30k. They didn't even sell through the 3400 tickets they had for it. And people were leaving the thing early.

    They are libertarians. Get 2 libertarians together and you'll get 2 vastly different ideas on what a libertarian is. Unlike most other political parties, it is one of the few that has no real central platform other than "No Government in my life."
