How poorly is Donald Trump’s New York civil fraud trial going for him? The testimony from one government witness was so devastating, Trump ended up running his mouth in frustration while the witness was still testifying. The judge’s response was what a lot of us wish we could do: he told Trump to shut up.
The judge warned Trump that his griping under his breath was audible to the entire courtroom, and he warned Trump to stop talking and keep it down.
This is a remarkable development in the sense that Trump has no choice but to comply. If he keeps running his mouth in the courtroom, the judge can kick him out, fine him, or even have him hauled away for contempt of court if that’s what it takes. Trump tends to cower in these situations, so he’ll probably meekly comply. But it’ll be fun to see what happens if he doesn’t.
