Oh boy, Trump and his campaign are really throwing a temper tantrum over Fulton County, GA District Attorney Fani Willis requesting a trial date in August… of 2024. Yep, you read that right.
According to Trump’s spokesperson, they’re attacking this request as political. But seriously, who wouldn’t want to wait three years for their trial? It’s like being stuck on hold with customer service for eternity.

I gotta say, there is something darkly humorous about Trump thinking that President Biden has the time and energy to be multiple prosecutors in multiple jurisdictions just to keep him in court all through the entire freakin’ election year of 2024.
You see, Republicans can’t make up their minds about Joe Biden. On one hand, they say he’s too old and unfit to be president. But on the other hand, they believe he’s a mastermind who is running a super-sophisticated scheme to stop Donald Trump from returning to the White House. Like seriously, it can’t be both! You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
But hey, we’re talking about Trump here. Logic has never been his strong suit. This man spent years screaming at the top of his lungs that Biden isn’t really in charge of the country. But now that he’s facing trial, suddenly Biden is some kind of super genius orchestrating a conspiracy against him? Give me a break.
Let me bring you back down to reality for a moment. Here are two undeniable facts that completely destroy Trump’s little premise: First off, the only reason this dude is gonna spend most of 2024 on trial is because he’s accused of committing not one or two felonies… but 91 freakin’ felonies! Let that sink in for a minute. Secondly, Biden doesn’t need any grand schemes or conspiracies to beat Trump because guess what? He already did just that in 2020!
I don’t care how you try to spin it or twist it around with your alternative facts and virtual realities—Donald J. Trump lost fair and square.
But let me tell ya folks, Donald was never gonna take kindly to even the slightest inconvenience like setting an August 2024 trial date. Nope, no way! And boy oh boy, he and his campaign team are taking this news much worse than anyone could have ever anticipated.
