Who’s up for some half-nude selfies of the crazy old judge in President Donald Trump’s fake New York property valuation case? Yeah… we weren’t either. Not that we’re surprised that New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron is a bit of a weirdo. We’ve been saying that all along.
The surprising thing about Judge Engoron is that his case of Trump Derangement Syndrome is so bad that he was unable to contain himself from screaming at Trump’s lawyers during the president’s first day of testimony on Monday.
America’s greatest president ever was called to the witness stand Monday and the hearing was downright explosive at times. While Judge Engoron was eager to mug for the TV cameras during the first day of the trial, before he kicked all the cameras out, Monday’s testimony is something we only know about because of reporters who were in the room to relate the transcript to us. We seriously wish that this hearing had been televised, because it sounds like it was a doozy.
The most amazing president of all time had to sit for five hours of cross examination from New York Attorney General Letitia James’s prosecutors. It sounds like President Trump was not only combative, but also downright awesome in the way that he pushed back against the prosecutors and the judge. Despite anything else that the media reports on Monday’s testimony, Trump was his usual self and he drove his opponents batty.
Trump turned the questioning around on state attorney Kevin Wallace. Since all of the loans for his properties were paid in full—and in cash—and not a single bank has ever claimed financial injury against Donald Trump, why is this show trial in a kangaroo court happening in the first place?
“We’re trying to figure out, why are you doing this,” Trump told Wallace. “No one understands it. Well, I understand it — it’s called pol-i-tics.
Wallace had the gall to ask whether all the loans had been paid back in full, knowing full well that they had. Trump noted that of course they had.
“I think this case is a disgrace,” said President Trump. “People are leaving New York due to this kind of thing. The only complainant is you.”
The prosecution’s questions ranged so far out of bounds that they were asking about President Trump’s properties in Aberdeen, Scotland, where the New York Attorney General’s office doesn’t have anything even vaguely close to jurisdiction. This entire case is predicated on the idea that President Trump inflated his assets in order to secure larger loans to purchase more properties.
Every bank did its due diligence, and as President Trump noted in court, no lender has ever complained—formally or informally—that it was harmed by doing business with the Trump Organization. Yet Attorney General Letitia James, who President Trump says wants to run for governor someday, is suing him for $250 million in fraud damages against the State of New York.
James’s team of prosecutors has ridiculously only valued Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago at $18 million. There’s literally a patch of trees near Mar-a-Lago that is valued at $150 million, so that valuation is absurd. This entire case is absurd.
One of the most hilarious moments happened Monday when the prosecutors asked Trump why he purchased one piece of property but then never developed it.
“I already have a castle,” replied the most hilarious public figure of all time. President Trump changed his mind on developing that property because, obviously, he already owns one castle. Two might be tacky, you know?
Judge Engoron finally blew his top and exploded with rage at President Trump and his attorneys. He screamed “SIT DOWN!” at Trump attorney Alina Habba while slamming his hand on a table like a little baby throwing a fit. (Which he was.)
As we’ve been noting all along, there is something seriously “off” with Judge Engoron. He’s an unstable weirdo that you probably shouldn’t allow your kids to be around. Some weird stuff is going to come out about this guy eventually. After his snit-fit in the courtroom Monday, we got our first hint.
Judge Engoron writes and publishes an alumni newsletter for the Wheatley School, a private high school in New York that he attended approximately 150 years ago. In the pages of that high school newsletter, Engoron frequently posts half-nude photos of himself with his shirt off, flexing his muscles. We’re not making this up.
Engoron, who is gross-looking even with all his clothes on, is apparently a “gym rat” who likes to lift weights and then pose shirtless. Ladies…
We’re not ready to pass final judgment on Judge Engoron’s personal life, but… all the evidence is pointing one direction so far. If this case isn’t dismissed for “conduct unbecoming” by Engoron by a higher court, we’re going to be extremely surprised.
