The Apprentice 2024 ???
barf smiley

Donald Trump appears to be treating his planned appeal in the second E. Jean Carroll defamation case like his former reality TV show, "The Apprentice."

The former president announced late Tuesday in a game show-like fashion on his social-media platform, Truth Social: "I am in the process, along with my team, of interviewing various law firms to represent me" in his appeal of the recent jury verdict that ordered him to pay a whopping $83.3 million to Carroll for defaming her.

In his post, Trump called the case "one of the most ridiculous and unfair Witch Hunts our Country has ever seen" as he again bashed US District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who presided over the Manhattan trial, calling him "Trump hating" and a "bully."

Trump, the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, promised that he would soon decide which law firm would represent him for his appeal in the case.

He will certainly pick one who will put up the $83M for the appeal.

His net worth falls further every day, but perhaps all these 'business losses' will simply make it another year of "no taxes due, Donnie"…

I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a defense today.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

promised that he would soon decide which law firm would draw the short straw and be forced to represent him for his appeal in the case.

“Neama Rahmani, an attorney and former federal prosecutor, explained that appellate lawyers "have a different skill set" like "looking for legal errors rather than arguing to a jury."

Trump, Rahmani said, "probably realizes that he lost the second Carroll trial so badly in part due to Alina Habba's limited trial experience and that he needs experienced appellate counsel."

"The question is," he said, "are any of them willing to take on an appeal they will likely lose?"

Well, sure. There’s a sucker born every minute, and folks like Trump depend on that.

The options are narrowing, though.

Is Alina still his attorney or he fired her?

If I understand correctly, Alina failed to object to items which otherwise might be appealed. You have to raise the issue at trial in order to appeal, which seems a bit harsh but prevents lawyers from turning an appeal into a completely new trial. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this, but it would appear that Alina really was less than optimal in terms of preserving Trump's options for appeal.

I wonder if she ever defended someone in a real trial before. How much actual experience has she?

Another "Prep School" demonstration of the Peter Principle.

"She attended Lehigh University, graduating in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in political science."

"She obtained a Juris Doctor from the Widener University Commonwealth Law School* ..."

"In March 2020 she left [a seven-attorney firm formed by her then-husband] to start her own firm. The firm, Habba, Madaio and Associates LLP, employs five people. Along with the firm's Bedminster, New Jersey office, Habba has an office in Manhattan."

"Habba has...held the position of general counsel for her second husband's parking garage company. She has represented clients in various legal cases including a man suing a nursing home in New Jersey, and a student seeking a refund for college tuition after University of Bridgeport moved classes to an online format.

In July 2021, Habba represented Siggy Flicker, a Trump-supporting former member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey who alleged that Facebook had disabled her account for wishing Melania Trump a happy birthday.

In July 2021, Habba represented Caesar DePaço, a vitamin supplement entrepreneur, in a federal court case where she filed a lawsuit against Portuguese journalists for revealing his close connections to the far-right Chega party in Portugal."

Sounds like any of us could do better with a few weeks of preparation

But not all of us have her tatas. Trump doesn’t care if he wins or loses because he doesn’t plan to pay these judgements. He’ll die before any cash changes hands. And there is always bankruptcy.

Followed up another decade claiming the loss in order to pay no taxes! Always a silver lining.
