He won't touch it until it's 13 years old

I wonder if Trump ever paid him for his prior work.
Plus he really embarrassed himself in those impeachment hearings and knew it at the time. His arguments were thoroughly savaged by the academic set.

The Dersh likes to get paid, and with what's coming down the pike, he's maybe worried about more than just his reputation. He's already reached his lowest point, but low point AND not able to be paid? Yeah, hard pass.

Everything Twice Impeached Guy does is a fundraising stunt.
 
2021-07-24 11:55:55 AM  
No, the lesson here is you need to blackmail him first.

That number seems high

He acts as an "adviser" to keep his name in the media but he isn't dumb enough to put his name on Trump's legal batshaittery.
 
2021-07-24 12:14:49 PM  
This has nothing to do with the merits of the case and everything to do with Dersh gets paid for his work.

Take the profitability, leave the liability.

The fact congress didn't shout this joker down when he stood in front of them and suggested the president can do whatever he wants was...well, it was a bad sign, wasn't it?
 
2021-07-24 12:32:31 PM  
He's 82.  Let me just say it: why are we even consider any arguments of this doddering 75+ cohort seeking money is beyond me.  The civil servants, absolutely, but lawyers?  No.
 
2021-07-24 12:35:27 PM  
By that standard, I should not resist unjust legal action against me as AD will not represent me. I'm sure he wants more money than I could possibly pay him and I doubt he specializes in all types of law and is not certified to practice law in my state.

/That being said, Trump is as usual full of it.

Dersh is an appeals attorney not a trial attorney

Whole lot less pressure on you when the case has already been lost once.

why would he take a case where he doesn't get to look at underage children being forced into sexual servitude?

"At the heart of Trump's class-action suit against social media tech giants is the argument that the companies' legal status "rises beyond that of a private company to that of a state actor,"

Right -- so their ubiquity means they're an essential service -- they "public utility"

This is rank nonsense. You're going to tell me that the Big 3 Auto makers -- before imports showed up -- had a responsibility to adhere to government dictates because they dominated the market? Because if you wanted a car you had to get it from them in all practical reality? Nonsense.

I wonder if Trump misplaced the recordings he was blackmailing Dirtbagowitz with?

Quite the charmer in his younger days.  I can see why he had no problem having to pay for sex.

Or years and years of his behavior...
The Dersh is a long-time advocate of removing all penalties for having sex with childeren, he has reapeatedly spoke in favor of pedophiles and he occasionally actually defends them in court.

And he rationalizes it all with a weird combination of pseudo-biology, pop-psychology, and a feudal interpretation of the law.  He's weird-ass freak who would have been killed in county lockup 40 years ago if he wasn't a lawyer.

you forgot how he admitted to getting massages (from kids) at Lolita Island because of his longtime friendship with Epstein.

I was wondering how old he is.  Good. Hopefully he'll start his final decline soon.

It's OK. Allen left his underwear on

OK then.  Creepy old dude who wants to boink underage kids.

I think that says all I need to know about him.

He probably wanted to get paid for his work, not end up having to sue his own client.

He also thinks prostitutes should be prosecuted but Johns should get a free pass. Dude is a sexual predator who is accused of molesting one of Epstein's sex slaves. But remember, its the girl's fault. She knew what she was doing. He was just "tasting the forbidden fruit." <-His actual expression for a man hiring a prostitute.

Celebrity attorneys like to get paid. Trump's record in that area is spotty at best.

Or now that Trump is a loser in the election, Putin has stopped paying the legal bills.

I can understand Grog's confusion though.

There's a big lateral jump between "removing all penalties from underage sex" and "watching naked children being sold on the auction block" and not all of us make that leap mid-thread.
 
2021-07-25 3:50:38 PM  
Tell Dersh that the lawsuit is both about Trump being deplatformed as well as Big Tech suppressing the First Amendment rights of eighth graders to post nude selfies on the internet and Dersh will immediately sign on pro boner bono.

By his definition, if you keep your underwear on its okay.  No matter WHAT you do.
