Editorial: Justice v. Donald Trump
After years of being manipulated by Donald Trump, the justice system may have finally had it with the litigious ex-president and businessman. And it seems Mr. Trump, or at least his lawyers, are getting the message.
It’s about time. Everyone deserves their day in court, as the saying goes. But it’s one thing for Mr. Trump to make a mockery of the American political system — mocking politics and politicians has, after all, been a longstanding tradition in American humor, literature, commentary, and, heck, even politics itself. It’s quite another thing for him to so openly turn the justice system into a joke.
