A disrespectful court officer who guided former President Donald Trump to a courtroom in New York City on Tuesday couldn’t even bother to hold the door for him as he made his way to see a judge.
It’s safe to say the world saw just how leftist Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and corrupt the New York City court system intends to treat the former president.
Trump was processed shortly after he arrived at the courthouse Tuesday.
He then headed upstairs, where he was arraigned by Judge Juan Merchan, a Democratic Party donor.
Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of allegedly falsifying business records and conspiracy related to his alleged role in hush money payments to former adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The former president had to walk outside in front of a pool of reporters in order to make his way upstairs for the arraignment. One of two court officers who had opened the doors in front of Trump let one close on him, as seen in a video shared on social media.
Trump is a big boy, and he got the door. But the disrespectful moment elicited quite a response on Twitter, as this is a city that runs a legal system that treats violent criminals with kid gloves.
