At the start of each Trump trial, civil or criminal, I’ve pointed out that Trump’s nonsense filings and social media antics don’t help him, they only hurt him. The reason is that not only do last minute antics fail to delay things, they also end up annoying the bejesus out of the judge.

While judges do have to remain impartial and fair no matter how distasteful they might find one side or the other, judges do have to make a lot of – it’s right their in their title – judgment calls. There are plenty of times where one side or the other needs a bit of latitude on something. In general, a judge is initially going to give a small amount of latitude to both sides. But once it’s used up, it’s used up.

Today we got official confirmation that Trump has indeed used up all of his proverbial rope in this trial. His attorneys argued that Trump should be allowed to make a public statement refuting the claims that Stormy Daniels made on the witness stand. But the judge rejected the request. He said that based on Trump’s existing social media posts about the witnesses, he can’t trust Trump to refute Daniels’ testimony without attacking her.

So there you have it. Trump’s attorneys are essentially saying Trust us, we can keep Trump in line with his social media posts about Stormy Daniels. and the judge is essentially saying Nope, Trump has already blown it.


. . .



This is why you don’t foolishly blow through your rope with the judge before the trial even gets going. At some point you’re going to need the judge to trust that you have good faith intentions on something, and the judge is going to cite your existing bad faith behavior as a basis for saying no.
