Hush up


To the editor:

How ironic. Donald Trump, the man who has decried “soft-on-crime, liberal cities,” now feels that the New York City court system is being too hard on him during his hush money trial.  

His complaints include having to be present during court proceedings, remaining quiet while seated in court and the jury selection process, and having to comply with a gag order. Trump has even complained that the court day is too long and the courtroom too cold. Poor baby, no wonder he had trouble staying awake.

Perhaps standing accused of crimes in NYC isn’t the cushy experience Trump (and other GOP leaders) believe it to be.  

Hopefully, he will also have the opportunity to learn that life in a blue state jail also has its down sides.
