Trump takes to Truth Social as prosecution closing arguments lasts hours: ‘BORING!’

Former President Trump took to social media to complain about the prosecution’s lengthy closing arguments in his hush money trial Tuesday.

“BORING!” Trump posted on Truth Social during a break in the proceedings.

“FILIBUSTER!” he wrote in another post.

The defense team concluded its closing arguments Tuesday after more than two hours, seeking to undermine the credibility of key witness and former Trump fixer, Michael Cohen.

The prosecution began its closing statements just after the court returned from its lunch break. After more than 90 minutes of speaking, prosecutor Joshua Steinglass told the judge he was only about one-third of the way through his summation.

Trump faces 34 counts of falsifying business records that accuse him of covering up Cohen’s $130,000 hush money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels by disguising reimbursements to Cohen as a monthly retainer fee. Trump pleaded not guilty and denies any wrongdoing.
