The former president complained that his sentencing is set to take place days before the Republican National Convention

Donald Trump says he wants the Supreme Court to intervene in his upcoming sentencing on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

“The ‘Sentencing’ for not having done anything wrong will be, conveniently for the Fascists, 4 days before the Republican National Convention,” Trump wrote Sunday night on Truth Social, complaining that Judge Juan Merchan was an “‘Acting’ Local Judge, appointed by the Democrats, who is HIGHLY CONFLICTED” to “make a decision which will determine the future of our Nation.”

“The United States Supreme Court MUST DECIDE!” Trump added in an appeal to the nation’s highest court.

    Nah, I mean don’t do crimes.

    Don’t get caught doing crimes is, by definition, infinitely more risky.

      Eh. I’m a pretty plain vanilla middle aged lady and I do crimes on occasion. Not big crimes, but you can’t just not do crimes. Especially before weed was legal, lol. Some people live in states where it’s illegal to commit various consensual acts between consenting adults. They should do crimes. Some people need to not be pregnant, but they are pregnant and it’s illegal to become no longer pregnant where they are. They should do crimes. Some people are drag queens and live in places where that is a crime. Not all laws are good laws.

        When you’re right you’re right! Not all laws are good laws. Unfortunately these days we’re heading in the wrong direction on that front too…

      Not “infinitely.” Even “don’t do crimes” still entails the risk of a wrongful conviction.

      The risk can be pretty fun hombre but you do what works for ya and I’ll own up to what I’ve done if I have to. A seemingly rare trait here in the states
