Trump Morning Rant: Says “Deranged” Special Prosecutor Jack Smith Taking Away First Amendment Rights with Protection Order


It’s going to be a wild day in Trump Land.

Trump and his cronies have until 5 pm to file an answer to special prosecutor Jack Smith’s request for an order of protection — or rather why Judge Tanya Chutkan shouldn’t keep imposing it after this past Friday.

To gain sympathy from the judge, Trump has now posted new rants calling Smith “deranged” and claiming in all caps that he’d be losing his First Amendment rights. This is the same Trump who treated the press as Public Enemy Number 1 and used Fox News as his state network, and was abusive to reporters he didn’t like/

This may be a diversion from the coming indictment — number 4 — in Atlanta this week.
