Americans Shocked by Trump’s Sickly Appearance as He Keeps Dozing Off in Court, ‘Dude Is So Overprescribed!’

Donald Trump is inside Manhattan Criminal Court today as his first criminal trial begins with jury selection, over six-figure hush-money payments the adjudicated rapist made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal ahead of the 2016 election.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in an effort to cover up the payments to keep Daniels and McDougal quiet about the affairs Trump had with the women. Trump’s relationship with Stormy Daniels was basically one night, but he continued to reach out to her over the next year. Trump relationship with McDougal was more serious. It was nearly a year long and “I love yous” were exchanged. McDougal had been in Trump’s penthouse apartment in Trump Tower and even saw his wife Melania’s bedroom.

The case marks the first time a former president has gone to trial over criminal charges. The trial is expected to last about two months, and Trump faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Because it’s a criminal trial, Trump must show up at court every day that it’s in session. And let’s be real, that’s going to be tough for Trump. Trump is not used to “working” a typical 9-5 job. Even as president, he would show up in the Oval Office around noon, fart around for a few hours, then return to the executive residence for “executive time”. Now, he’s required to sit in a courtroom all day, except for a break for lunch, and it’s going to be exhausting.

In fact, based on the photos coming out this morning, he already looks like he’s exhausted and not handling what’s about to happen very well. In fact, it’s being reported he is falling asleep.

Maggie Haberman from the New York Times said, “Trump appears to be sleeping. His head keeps dropping down and his mouth goes slack.”

She also told the same to CNN’s Jake Tapper:

This is not a good look:

And Trump commemorated the first day of his criminal hush money trial by coming unglued about a completely separate criminal trial he faces. Trump took to Truth Social and wrote:

“Attorney General Merrick Garland, Head of Crooked Joe Biden’s Department of “Justice,” in a highly inappropriate, unseemly, and unethical Interview with Fake News CNN, corruptly said that he wants to “speed up” the Witch Hunt against me in Washington, D.C. IF HE WANTED TO RESOLVE THAT HOAX SO QUICKLY, WHY DID GARLAND AND HIS UNDERLINGS WAIT 3 YEARS TO BRING THE SHAM “CASE”? Everyone knows the answer—It is because they know that I did nothing wrong (I also have Full Immunity, because I was investigating the Rigged and Stolen 2020 Presidential Election, which was my duty as President), and are desperately trying to save Crooked Joe by interfering in the 2024 Presidential Election. Make America Great Again!”

And then there is Trump’s appearance. It is BAD. Look at his eyes, the purple and pink skin directly under his eyes…this man is not well, and probably medicated to keep him from screaming or throwing a fit in court.

Justice Juan M. Merchan warned Trump that if he disrupts the proceedings in the hush money trial in any way, he could be jailed, with the proceeding continuing in his absence. The notice came after Trump’s attorney Todd Blanche claimed that Trump wants to be “present at everything.”

“President Trump wants to be present at everything,” Blanche said shortly before the lunch break. He said Trump plans to be involved in court conferences and the jury selection process.
