WILLIAMS: What’s Subsequent?

Many people have been consumed with the antics of Donald Trump for much too lengthy. It’s clear that these received’t finish quickly, however he appears to be in good fingers now for us to imagine justice will probably be served. He’s in good fingers with Decide Tanya Chutkan, who’s overseeing Trump’s case in Washington, D.C. She was appointed to her place by President Barack Obama. She doesn’t appear to be planning to maintain us questioning how she is going to deal with the trial. I don’t suppose his antics will work along with her. 

He may have his day in court docket with no-nonsense District Legal professional Fani Willis in Fulton County, Georgia. When Ms. Willis says she and her staff are prepared, she makes me really feel that she has left no stone unturned. With the way in which Trump has been making an attempt to taunt her together with his lies about her, I’ve little question about her readiness.

When these two sisters have accomplished their job, Trump should face New York State Legal professional Common Tish James, who has been prepared! Trump should return to New York to see District Legal professional Alvin Bragg. I don’t suppose his bat will assist him there. E. Jean Carroll was awarded $5 million, discovering that Trump sexually abused her, and she or he stands to obtain $10 million extra from Trump for his sexually abusing her and for battery and defamation.

If none of that has but put him in jail, let’s begin together with his uncontrollable tongue repeatedly calling particular counsel Jack Smith a deranged particular person and a sick pet. It appears that evidently someday subsequent yr, Mr. Smith may have the chance to get him by way of the jailhouse door! That’s what folks I do know are ready for each time they hear Trump denigrating all people, and virtually daring them to appropriately punish this man as he frequently taunts us together with his skill to stroll down fifth Avenue, shoot anyone, and get away with it. He’s received double digits of prices, and with all his bravado, he seems to be sweating up a storm today.

Our justice system appears to be darned harsh for unusual residents — particularly for Black folks. There isn’t any technique to clarify why Trump will not be already locked up! We proceed to listen to, “nobody is above the legislation,” but many go on tv and say issues that make us marvel in the event that they actually suppose a former president shouldn’t be despatched to jail or not be punished for such craziness. Some even say Trump needs to be pardoned. I simply heard anyone say he in all probability received’t be jailed due to the expense of his being entitled to lifetime Secret Companies safety and we, the taxpayers, should pay for it! Give me a break!

This man has executed a lot harm to this nation that he deserves a life sentence. He’s even cheated so many MAGA followers who proceed to ship him cash they will’t afford to ship, however he has incited their ignorance a lot that they might reasonably be broke and white as a result of they suppose their whiteness makes them higher than any particular person of shade!

As for the remainder of us, let’s deal with all people pretty. Let’s work for peace, for love, and pray for justice for not solely Trump however for all of these concerned in betraying the nation and for stirring up extra hate and extra ignorance than we’ve skilled in fashionable occasions.
