It's odd how when America arrests a poor person you can't find anyone anywhere besides their public defender who cares about their denials of wrongdoing, but when Trump commits (and confesses to) multiple crimes and thereafter decides to deny it we all think there's content there

1/ A real easy fix for this would be for media to treat Trump's denials of wrongdoing the same way we treat such denials when it's a poor defendant rather than a rich one—which is to ignore them completely and just focus on the presumptive mountain of evidence stacked against him

PS/ Never in my career as a public defender did I represent a person as dishonest as Trump, and I say that advisedly
