Leo Terrell And Rivera Get Into Brawl Over Trump’s Liable Verdict

Yesterday, a Manhattan jury found former President Donald Trump liable for defamation and sexual battery in a civil case brought forth by E. Jean Carroll. The jury awarded Carroll a hefty $5 million in damages for Trump’s comments calling her accusations a “hoax and a lie”.

However, the jury did not find the former president liable on any rape charges. This is a major victory for Trump and his supporters, who have long viewed the case as another in a long line of “witch hunts” against the former President.

Fox News contributors Leo Terrell and Geraldo Rivera debated the verdict on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” Terrell argued that Trump supporters view the verdict as a victory, pointing to an ABC News/Washington Post poll that showed Trump trouncing current President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 election.

“Trump supporters are looking at this case as another witch hunt,” Terrell said. “The totality of all the civil and criminal cases against Donald Trump is for one reason only: they don’t want this man to run for president.”

Rivera accused Trump and Terrell of being “arrogant” for allegedly scoffing at the seriousness of the case and the impact it will have in the election.

“To minimize a charge of sexual battery in this day and age, I think you’re being naive,” Rivera said. “This is very, very serious.”

Terrell countered by pointing out that Trump’s poll numbers have only increased despite the numerous civil and criminal cases he has faced.

“Trump is popular with the everyday people,” he said. “Maybe not inside the beltway, Martha, I’ll give you that. But the everyday people.”

This case is yet another example of the relentless pursuit to take down Trump, even after he has left office. It is a sad testament to the continued witch hunts against him and his supporters, and a reminder of the power of the left’s agenda to shame and silence those who do not adhere to their ideals.

No matter what your political affiliation, it is important to remember that everyone is entitled to a fair trial and due process, no matter how unpopular their views may be. It is also important to remember that no one should be shamed or silenced for their beliefs, and that all opinions should be respected.


The jury’s decision in this case is a victory for Trump and his supporters, and a reminder that the truth will always prevail in the end.
