Trump’s Desperate Attempts to Delay Criminal Trial Ridiculed by Colbert

Stephen Colbert recently took aim at Donald Trump’s efforts to delay his criminal trial, scheduled to begin in less than a week. Trump’s legal team has made several outlandish arguments in an attempt to postpone the trial.

The Argument of Unfair Jury Pool

One of the arguments put forth by Trump’s lawyers was that the former president would not receive a fair trial because the jury pool had been tainted by extensive media coverage of Trump’s other legal battles. Colbert humorously pondered who would be considered an impartial juror, suggesting individuals who have been isolated from all news for nearly a decade.

“Your honor, it’s only fair that our client be judged by individuals who are completely unaware of the events that have transpired in America over the last nine years,” Colbert joked sarcastically.

Trump’s legal team’s assertion that a change of venue was necessary due to the tainted jury pool was met with ridicule by Colbert, who pointed out the absurdity of the claim.

Desperate Legal Tactics

In addition to the change-of-venue request, Trump resorted to filing a lawsuit against the judge overseeing the case. Colbert compared the situation to a scene out of a ‘bizarro court,’ highlighting the bizarre nature of the lawsuit challenging the judge’s gag order on Trump.

Despite Trump’s attempts to sway the trial in his favor, it is evident that the former president is facing a level of accountability he has long avoided. As Colbert pointed out, Trump’s belief in his immunity to consequences is eroding as the trial date approaches.

Trump’s Desperation

Trump’s desperation is palpable as he faces the reality of being held accountable for his actions. Having skirted consequences for much of his life, the prospect of legal repercussions is a new and unsettling experience for the former president. Colbert aptly captured the essence of Trump’s predicament, emphasizing the growing desperation of the defendant as the trial draws near.
