Trump’s Whining About a “Rigged” Judiciary Is Ridiculous

“Minutes after a jury of Donald Trump’s peers found him guilty on all 34 felony counts, the former president trotted out the same tired line about the system being rigged that he seems to air whenever he loses, whether it’s a court case, an election, or even at the Emmy Awards. For Trump and his allies, those complaints are generally reserved for judges and juries and voters when things don’t go his way. But that’s not how the law, or the rule of law, works. What Trump really means when he says something is rigged is that he lost.” (06/07/24)
