Ugly Courtroom Catnap

April 16, 2024

Once again the T-Rump was in a New York courtroom today in part two of his ‘hush money’ trial with Stormy Daniels, and, apparently, he has so much legal shit happening all over in so many jurisdictions he’s bored out of whatever little mind he has left inside that horrid, cruel and nasty slack face.
So afresh this afternoon nodding off like a nit-twit.

As noted: ‘“Trump is periodically leaning back in his chair and closing his eyes, only to shift his weight moments later,” NBC News noted in its live coverage. “It is difficult to say whether he has fallen asleep or is resting his eyes.”

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman was one of the first yesterday to call out T-Rump’s asshole-looking catnaps — and T-Rump made a nasty response (The Hill): ‘“He made a pretty specific stare at me and walked out of the room … I want to be clear that I’ve seen lots of people fall asleep in courtrooms … I’ve seen jurors fall asleep. I’ve seen judges fall asleep. If anyone falls asleep who’s a criminal defendant in a case, we’re going to report on it … But he doesn’t like when such things are reported, and I’m guessing — I don’t know — that that’s what this was about.”

Ugly sight:

Reportedly, all about insane caffeine intake — Bess Levin at Vanity Fair this afternoon:

On Monday, we posited that a busy schedule and lack of adequate sleep at home was the reason the ex-president couldn‘t keep his eyes open. But on Tuesday, a new theory emerged: Trump keeps nodding off because, due to the constraints of the courtroom, he’s not getting his regular, steady supply of Diet Coke—and the caffeine that comes with it.

As The New York Times reported in 2017, Trump drinks about 12—12!—Diet Cokes a day, which, while living in the White House, he reportedly summoned via the Diet Coke button he had installed on his desk. Each 12-oz. can of Diet Coke contains 46 mg of caffeine, meaning with his dozen-DCs-a-day habit, Trump is used to consuming the caffeine equivalent of about four 12-oz. cups of coffee. (He does not drink coffee itself.) The courtroom where his trial is taking place does not allow any eating or drinking.* Meaning a guy who essentially spends his days hooked up to a Diet Coke IV is now going cold turkey for multihour stretches. While it’s possible Trump could circumvent the issue by front-loading all his Diet Cokes in the morning before going to court, it seems pretty clear he’s not doing that.

He’s just an asshole with sleep problems — mainly he’s such a cruel piece of shit it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep.

Let’s let The Beatles close us out:

Sleepy-eyed asshole, or not, yet here we are once again…

Image out front is my favorite of the T-Rump mugs, though, ‘favorite‘ does not mean in any form or fashion, as in, ‘my favorite movie,’ or ‘my favorite song.’ It’s more of an anti-appreciation/like.

And aptly titled, ‘Basic Shapes,‘ by caricaturist/illustrator Chong Jit Leong (and found here), it’s an image that displays the elemental form of a purloined sociopath — a bloated profile of flatulent bile and arrogant ignorance.
