Joe Rogan says ‘morons’ had a ‘king’ in Donald Trump
Donald Trump had a busy Saturday venting Truth Social’s grievances over his treatment since a large amount of classified documents were recovered from Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach home, this summer.
The former president’s anger over the matter was reignited following the discovery of a small number of classified documents from when President Joe Biden was vice president at his home and in an office that he once used.
Mr. Trump is particularly vexed by his perception of the differences between the respective special counsel that Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed to investigate separate matters.
Robert Hur, whom Mr Trump calls a “nice guy” friendly to Democrats, will oversee an investigation into Mr Biden’s case, while Jack Smith, whom he calls a “Radical Left Trump HATING Lunatic”, will look into his alleged transgressions.
Meanwhile, a judge has unsealed parts of a transcript of Mr Trump’s testimony resulting from E Jean Carroll’s lawsuit against him.
In his testimony, he repeatedly denied the allegations against him and claimed not to know the woman who accused him of raping her in the 1990s, calling it “crazy work” while threatening to sue her and her attorneys.

Judge dismisses Trump’s ‘absurd’ attempt to dismiss E Jean Carroll’s rape trial
A judge has dismissed an attempt by Donald Trump to dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit filed by E. Jean Carroll.
Ms Carroll accused the former president in 2019 of raping her in a New York department store in the mid-1990s. She sued last year after New York enacted the Adult Survivors Act (ASA), which allows victims of sexual assault to sue for decades-old offenses.
Mr Trump had asked for the sexual assault lawsuit accusing him of assault and defamation to be thrown out, saying he had been denied due process.
On Friday, Judge Lewis Kaplan said in a ruling rejecting the motion that Mr Trump’s argument was “absurd”.

Analysis: Why Republicans Don’t All React the Way You Think to Classified Biden Documents
The Independentit is Eric Garcia writing :
When news broke this week that classified documents had been discovered in President Joe Biden’s former office, dating back to his tenure as Vice President of the Obama administration, it looked like Republicans had been given a belated Christmas present. .
They had, after all, spent months on the defensive on behalf of Donald Trump, who was found with hundreds of classified documents from his time as president.
