After President Donald Trump was fined $5,000 and threatened with imprisonment by New York State Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron for violating his gag order, he posted an epic image that would likely enrage his opponents.
Trump posted the image on Instagram and Truth Social on Friday.
The image was of Trump sitting next to Jesus Christ.
While the image was initially shared in early October, he posted it again.
The sketch was also posted on X by user Dom Lucre, according to the New York Post.
This is the most accurate court sketch of all time. Because nobody could have made it this far alone. pic.twitter.com/vH1KgFk14q— Dom Lucre | Breaker of Narratives (@dom_lucre) October 2, 2023
“This is the most accurate court sketch of all time. Because nobody could have made it this far alone,” Lucre wrote in the caption.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia recently compared Trump’s arraignment in April on a charge of falsifying business records to the persecution of Jesus,
“Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government,” she said then.
“There have been many people throughout history that have been arrested and persecuted by radical corrupt governments, and it’s beginning today in New York City.”
Trump was fined over a social media post calling Engoron’s clerk, Allison Greenfield, the girlfriend of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
However, the post was deleted from Truth Social after Engoron ordered it to be taken down, but it remained on Trump’s campaign website.
While Engoron said the failure to remove the post from the website appeared inadvertent, he would not let Trump escape the fine.
“In this current overheated political climate, incendiary untruths can, and in some cases already have, led to serious physical harm, and worse,” he wrote.
“Make no mistake: future violations, whether intentional or unintentional, will subject the violator to far more severe sanctions,” the judge said.
Trump shared a post on Truth Social on Saturday from another user calling Ergoron a “lunatic.”
Last month, Engoron ruled that Trump had committed fraud by overvaluing his net worth to obtain beneficial financial loans and arrangements.
The ruling related to only one of seven charges against Trump in the civil fraud trial initiated by a filing from New York Attorney General Letitia James.
In September, The Daily Fetched reported that Engoron boasted he could change verdicts if he believed the jury got “it wrong.”
In an unearthed video, Engoron is seen telling a college audience he has seen juries frequently reach conclusions he disagreed with.
