WASHINGTON, DC – Trump attorney Alina Habba strongly criticized journalists who were overheard joking about former President Donald Trump being assassinated. The incident occurred outside the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse in Washington, where Trump’s appeal for criminal immunity was being heard. News cameras were stationed along the route from the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia to capture Trump’s arrival at the courthouse.
During a live feed, journalists were heard bantering about the challenges of getting a good shot of Trump, which escalated into darker humor with references to the late President John F. Kennedy and a convertible. The conversation caused a stir, prompting Habba to denounce the journalists as “deranged.”
Habba voiced her concerns about this unsettling remark during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Hannity. She condemned the journalists’ joking about the assassination of a former president and leading candidate, deeming it sick and deserving appropriate action.
Habba’s remarks come in the wake of allegations made against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. She referenced these claims, which were included without evidence in a court filing.
The incident has sparked outrage and raised questions about the conduct of journalists who cover high-profile events. Public figures and media organizations have voiced their disapproval of such inappropriate remarks.
As the legal proceedings continue, the focus remains on Trump’s claim of criminal immunity and the potential implications for future presidents. The incident serves as a reminder of the responsibility journalists hold in reporting news with professionalism and respect.
