Jimmy Kimmel mocks Eric Trump’s statement that he is “a construction guy.”
The federal appeals court has temporarily removed the restriction on former President Donald Trump from speaking about his involvement in the 2020 election interference case.
On Friday, the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit made a decision to temporarily suspend the limited gag order, giving judges additional time to consider Mr. Trump’s request for an extended pause on the limitations placed on his speech during his ongoing appeals.
The court clarified that the delay should not be interpreted as a decision on the validity of Mr Trump’s appeal.
On Friday, Eric Trump finished giving his testimony in the $250 million civil fraud trial of Mr. Trump in New York. To prevent any further conflicts, Judge Arthur Engoron extended the existing gag order to include Mr. Trump’s lawyers after a heated argument arose over claims of prejudice from the court clerk.
The fraud trial is a civil proceeding while the election interference case is one of four criminal indictments against Mr Trump.
New York Attorney General Letitia James has accused the Trump Organization of exaggerating the value of its assets in order to deceive banks and secure more favorable financing terms. The result of this legal proceeding could potentially lead to the downfall of the organization.
The special counsel is opposed to the Trump trial becoming a televised spectacle.
According to Rule 53 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, it is prohibited for a court to allow photography or broadcasting of judicial proceedings in the courtroom.
Mr. Smith stated that the rule is implemented solely to prevent the potential risks that policymakers have identified regarding the use of cameras in the fair administration of justice. He believes that the rule should remain in effect to ensure that Mr. Trump is prosecuted fairly.
However, a number of media outlets such as The New York Times, The Associated Press, NBC Universal, and others have expressed their belief that the highly unusual prosecution of the former president is in the best interest of the public and would be advantageous to air.
The children of Trump have acquired their father’s most effective strategies – and it may lead to his downfall.

I used to harbor negative feelings towards a colleague who consistently arrived late, left early, and took credit for others’ work. It appeared that they faced no repercussions for their actions. I would often express my frustration by exclaiming, “They’re getting away with murder!” However, I never truly thought that the situation would escalate to physical violence.
In 2016, when Donald Trump claimed on tape that he could shoot someone on Fifth Ave and still retain his supporters, I was reminded of a colleague. Initially, I dismissed it as a mere figure of speech. However, over the next seven years, Trump continued to spew lies and engage in deceitful behavior, but still managed to evade consequences. It appeared that Trump’s belief in being immune to accountability was accurate.
Finally, after a long time, now.
Republican Congressman Ken Buck plans to leave Congress in a bold and destructive manner.
Representative Ken Buck has reached his limit.
Last week, the Colorado Republican stated he would not run for another term and started off with the usual critique of Democratic policies, as expected from a staunch conservative. However, he surprised by directing his frustration towards fellow Republicans in a three-minute video, accusing them of being overly focused on seeking revenge for fabricated wrongdoings from the past.
Buck’s aggressive strategy was not unexpected by many on Capitol Hill.
Buck, with his stoic attitude, strong sense of autonomy, and experience as a federal prosecutor, has become well-known as a House Republican who is tired of Donald Trump’s false claims regarding the 2020 election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden. This stance is not shared by many others in the GOP and demonstrates the significant impact of Trump’s previously marginalized lies on the Republican party.
Buck frequently makes appearances on networks like CNN. He has no intention of leaving Congress before his term ends, making him a likely adversary to Republicans in the remaining months of his tenure. His unconventional beliefs also extend to the impeachment investigation involving Biden, which Buck has disregarded as unfounded.
Buck stated in the video that our country is headed towards a collision with reality, and that the only way to move forward is through a strong dedication to truth, even if it may be uncomfortable.

For those who missed it: Ivanka Trump’s request to postpone her testimony in a New York civil fraud trial has been denied.
The appeals court quickly rejected her request for a temporary delay of her testimony on November 8, which was scheduled in the middle of a school week, after her lawyer argued that it would cause her unnecessary difficulty.
According to her lawyer, Ms. Trump lives in Florida with her three young children and would face serious difficulties if she is not granted a delay and is forced to testify in a New York trial during the school week. This is for a case that she has already been removed from and before her appeal is considered. The appeal was filed on Thursday.
The court of appeals has temporarily lifted the restraining order preventing Trump from speaking about election fraud in a specific case.
The restriction on Donald Trump’s speech in his 2020 election interference case in Washington was temporarily lifted by a federal appeals court on Friday. This is the latest development in the ongoing legal battle over the limitations placed on the former president’s ability to speak.
The recent ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit temporarily suspends the limited gag order, allowing the judges to review Trump’s request for a longer delay on the restrictions while his appeals are ongoing. The appeals court clarified that the temporary pause should not be seen as a decision on the merits of Trump’s request.
The court has scheduled verbal discussions for November 20th with a group of three judges, all chosen by Democratic presidents.
On Friday, a lawyer representing Trump chose not to provide a statement.
Judge Tanya Chutkan, of the U.S. District Court, has issued a gag order that prohibits Trump from publicly talking about prosecutors, court employees, and potential witnesses involved in the case against him for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election he lost to President Joe Biden. However, the order does not prevent the former president from maintaining his innocence and arguing that the case against him is driven by political factors.
Chutkan, who was selected for the position by former President Barack Obama, reinstated the gag order on Sunday. This decision was made after prosecutors cited President Trump’s recent social media posts regarding his former chief of staff Mark Meadows.
This is the most severe limitation a court has imposed on the speech of a GOP presidential candidate who is also facing criminal charges in four different cases. While gag orders are not uncommon in high-profile trials, this is the first time courts have had to consider whether they can restrict the speech of a potential presidential nominee.
George Santos stoops even lower with despicable assault on son of Republican lawmaker.
George Santos, a notorious liar, launched a vicious assault on the son of a fellow member of the Republican party. He accused the young man of being a “criminal” and a “drug peddler” who has been distributing meth and harming the community.
“Yesterday evening, the House’s shadow was seen. Regrettably, this indicates that Santos will remain for an additional two weeks,” stated Mr. Womack jokingly on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The congressman from New York, who was facing difficulties, decided to launch a vicious and deeply personal assault on James Womack, the son of Mr. Womack.

Marjorie Taylor Greene criticizes Lauren Boebert for her support of vaping.
Marjorie Taylor Greene recently criticized Lauren Boebert with the term “vaping groping,” adding to the ongoing feud between the former friends.
Mr Roy was one of 23 Republicans who joined 199 Democrats in rejecting Ms Greene’s measure and defended the move in a post on X, formerly Twitter.
“Rep. Rashida Tlaib has repeatedly made outrageous remarks toward Israel and the Jewish people. Her conduct is unbecoming of a member of Congress and certainly worthy of condemnation – if not censure,” Mr Roy wrote on X.
Ms. Greene was evidently upset by the post and responded with an angry reply, also managing to criticize her fellow MAGA supporter and sworn opponent, Ms. Boebert.
Eric Trump states that the world is finding the current situation humorous.
Jimmy Kimmel criticizes Donald Trump Jr’s testimony.
Donald Trump Jr., who has denied any involvement along with his brother Eric Trump, cleverly joked about wishing he had worn make-up as photographers crowded the courtroom.
Mr. Kimmel, the host of a talk show, was definitely not amused by Mr. Trump Jr.’s jokes.

Why is it necessary for Trump’s children to give testimony at the civil fraud trial in New York?
In October, the primary attention turned to Lower Manhattan as Donald Trump’s numerous legal problems were brought to trial at the New York Supreme Court for civil fraud.
The Trump Organization was sued by New York Attorney General Letitia James. It is alleged that from 2011 to 2021, the company fabricated financial records for various real estate ventures and exaggerated Mr. Trump’s net worth in order to secure more favorable loans and insurance deals.
This was done by over-stating valuations of the former president’s most prestigious holdings including his triplex penthouse at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan and his current home at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.
As the prosecution’s presentation nears its end, three of his grown children are being called to the witness stand to give sworn testimony. This raises the question: how are they involved in this situation and what significance does their testimony hold in the trial?
