Poor Donnie he's afraid he has a TV loser for his lawyer. He knows it is all about looks when you're on TV and nobody looks as good as him.
President Donald Trump and his Republican allies have begun to debate how best to handle the impeachment trial. And one of the key questions at hand is who will represent Trump in the Senate.

One obvious choice would be White House counsel Pat Cipollone. But according to The New York Times, there is a problem: Trump is scared that he might not be particularly good on national television.

“Mr. Cipollone is expected to represent Mr. Trump at the trial, along with the president’s outside lawyers,” reported Sheryl Gay Stolberg. “But the president has also been quizzing people about who his lawyers should be, and has noted Mr. Cipollone’s lack of TV experience, as the trial will be televised, a person involved in the planning said.”

Trump, prior to being president, spent much of his career in the entertainment business, as well as real estate, and was well-known for his roles in reality shows like “The Apprentice.” He has consistently valued showmanship in his presidency, and in the people working for him.

Maybe tRump should consider doing the job himself. He thinks he is the greatest at everything so he should want to do his own defense or he could let Rudy do it. :roflmao:

The Senate won't let anyone bad testify on TV. It is the real kangaroo court.

Donnie is the producer and director and wants this to be his greatest, an Oscar winning production. Not surprising he also wants to control the casting (actors) and the script. He wants this "Persecution of the Greatest President of the US" to run on cable so he collects awards after awards.

YouGov ran a poll a few weeks ago and one of the questions asked was who was the greater president, Lincoln or Trump and among Republicans Trump scored higher. SCARY
