Trump mocks judges in legal battles, asks who is the 'worst' or 'most evil'

Former President Trump mocked judges who have been a part of his various legal battles on Saturday, asking which of them is the worst or the most corrupt.

It continues an assault on the judges who have been appointed to sit over his various trials, and comes just before his hush-money trial is set to begin in New York on Monday.

“Who is the WORST, most EVIL and most CORRUPT JUDGE? Would it be Judge Arthur Engoron, Judge Lewis Kaplan or, could it be that my current New York disaster, Judge Juan Merchan, is the WORST?” Trump said in a Truth Social post.

Merchan will preside over the hush money trial, when when it begins on Monday will represent the first time a former U.S. president sits for a trial on criminal charges in U.S. history.

“They are all from violent crime (without retribution!) filled New York, are really bad Judges, are extraordinarily conflicted and unfair, and most obviously to all, suffer from a rare but very lethal disease, TDS, commonly known as TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME,” the former president wrote.

Engoron and Kaplan oversaw both Trump’s New York civil fraud case and his E. Jean Carroll defamation case.

Trump has previously lashed out at Merchan’s daughter Loren, who has served as an executive at a progressive political consulting firm that has worked for Democrats including President Biden and Vice President Harris.

Loren Merchan appeared to be behind an account on the social platform X that used a photo illustration of Trump in prison as a profile picture, according to The Associated Press. A court spokesperson said the account was no longer linked to her; it has since gone private, and the photo has been updated.

“So, let me get this straight,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post.

“The Judge’s daughter is allowed to post pictures of her ‘dream’ of putting me in jail, the Manhattan D.A. is able to say whatever lies about me he wants, the Judge can violate our Laws and Constitution at every turn, but I am not allowed to talk about the attacks against me, and the Lunatics trying to destroy my life, and prevent me from winning the 2024 Presidential Election, which I am dominating?”
