Trump Verdict Just Brutally Backfired On Dems In Way Biden Didn't See Coming!

Trump Verdict Just Brutally Backfired On Dems In Way Biden Didn't See Coming!

Following Donald Trump’s 34-count criminal conviction in his hush money trial earlier in the day, Greg Gutfeld, co-host of “The Five,” remarked during a broadcast segment on Thursday that he believed the sentence would make the former president’s 2024 campaign “on steroids.”

Although many legal experts from both sides repeatedly asserted during the six-week trial that there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump, and accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of concocting the charges to target the former president, a jury found Trump guilty of violating the law to conceal a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

However, Gutfeld noted that the conviction is likely to enhance Trump’s current presidential campaign.

“I believe that they just gave Popeye a gallon of spinach laced with steroids and meth,” Gutfeld began, using a quip. “And I think you are going to see this – the numbers aren’t going to go in Biden’s favor. I think this will not only solidify the [Trump] base, it will radicalize it, it will infuriate the independents and the undecideds, and those who see Biden as a desiccated, you know, barely alive person will be, I think, energized by their spirits."

“One thing, to your point about it, spinach fuel, the Trump donation site crashed a few minutes ago,” co-host Dana Perino responded. “And it is still down, which means, I think to your point, the base will be energized. WinRed also having similar problems.”

Perino continued, passing it over to co-host Jesse Watters: “Jesse, your sentencing is scheduled on July 11. Two weeks have passed since the first presidential debate. and four days before to the commencement of the RNC convention. It is all crunched, then."

“Trump was found guilty because he beat Hillary and is about to beat Joe Biden. I thought I’d be angry. But I feel this cool resignation. This resoluteness. That we are wounded as a country. And we are not going to go down,” Watters said. “That we are going to get back up. We are going to regain our strength. And then we are going to vanquish the evil forces that are destroying this republic.

“And if you look at the American people, how are they looking at this? People are desperate for help from these politicians, for safety, for security. And these nitwits, consumed with hatred, are planning to destroy a man because he threatens their power,” Watters went on. “These are wicked people, obsessed with a person, and we will seek justice. We guarantee that.

“This man’s life is a Greek tragedy. From billionaire, bankrupt, TV star, and Hollywood Walk of Fame. Divorces. Marriages. Children. And that was even before he entered politics. And then you have investigations and hoaxes and a pandemic. And now they are trying to incarcerate this person. And the only way this act ends is if he is reelected, and it looks like he will be reelected,” Watters added.

In response to the conviction, Megyn Kelly, a prominent SiriusXM podcaster and former Fox News star, declared that Democrats will “rue the day” they manipulated the legal system to “corrupt a presidential election.”

The anchor of “The Megyn Kelly Show” expressed her displeasure with the jury’s verdict to find Trump guilty on all 34 counts in the hush-money trial on X, the former Twitter platform.

“Guilty on all counts. The country is disgraced. Alvin Bragg should be disbarred. They will rue the day they unleashed this lawfare to corrupt a presidential election,” Kelly wrote to her 3 million followers.

She also denounced Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s “outrageous prosecution” of Trump.
