Trump Gagged by Judge Engoron After Posting Social Media Attacks on His Law Clerk Calling Her “Schumer’s Girlfriend”


Donald Trump has been gagged by Judge Engoron from writing or speaking about members of the jurist’s staff.

Trump today posted an attack on Engoron’s law clerk. then referred to her during a trial break, to reporters, as “Schumer’s girlfriend.”

“Consider this a gag order on all parties with respect to posting or publicly speaking about any member of my staff,” Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron said. If Trump violates the gag he could go to jail for 30 days.

Facing financial annihilation in this trial, Trump has let loose like crazy on his Truth Social account. He’s been mocking both Engoron and NY AG Letitia James, giving them childish nicknames and blasting them for saying he over-valued his properties to get property tax breaks. An example is below.

Trump can’t stop himself. This is civil case without jail time involved, but he may very well get himself behind bars. The end is near. He will never last the estimated 12 weeks of this trial without doing something really stupid.

Is there an emoji for rubbing hands together in anticipation?
