Best Mug Shot Ever

Posted on | August 28, 2023 | Comments Off on Best Mug Shot Ever

The phrase “Acme School of Law” was coined during the Brett Kimberlin saga to describe the tendency of a certain pro se plaintiff (and such of his associates/fanboys as the neckless wonder Bill Schmalfeldt) to pursue legal action that was ultimately harmful to their own interests, a la super genius Wile E. Coyote strapping on his Acme rocket roller skates in another futile effort to catch the elusive Roadrunner.

Something similar seems to have happened with the Democrats and their latest “get Trump” scheme, where they arranged for Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney Fani Willis to bring RICO charges against Trump and his aides and — oh, such orgasmic joy at CNN! — force Trump to have his mug shot taken at the local jail in Atlanta. Don Surber has the hilarious tale of how this scheme exploded in their faces:

Liberals gloated, then reality struck.
The Hill reported, “Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) shared a video of him laughing at the mugshot photo and saying, ‘We got you, and more to come . . . Clown, thug, crook, criminal.’” . . .
Shortly afterward, the congressman realized the error Democrats made.
He panicked and tweeted, ‘This mugshot is not what you think it is.
“It’s a jackpot for Trump who will use this image to raise MILLIONS of dollars from his cult — and the worst part is they are going to use it to win even more elections so they can change our laws to make it easier to steal our democracy.
“It’s a symbol of everything that is wrong with our country. It is a reminder of the deep divisions that exist, the hatred that is spewed, and hate is tolerated. It is a sign that our democracy is in danger.
“After today, the Republican Party will solidify their support around Trump and our fate will be sealed.”
