Jon Stewart marvels at how Trump has committed 'so many crimes' he got 'bored' at his own trial


“Imagine committing so many crimes, you get bored at your own trial,” Stewart said of Trump on Monday night’s episode.

In her story, Haberman wrote that “Trump appeared to nod off a few times, his mouth going slack and his head drooping onto his chest.” Other outlets such as CNN and The Washington Post made similar observations of Trump.

“He appeared to be asleep and repeatedly his head would fall down,” Haberman told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Monday.

“Hey Jake, what part of ‘head down, eyes closed, drool coming out of his mouth’ do you not get over here? He’s snoring. He’s doing the honk shoo,” Stewart said on his show before imitating the snoring sounds made by cartoon characters.

“There’s a piece of paper going up and down and up and down in his mouth,” Stewart added. “He’s asleep.”

But this wouldn’t be the first time Trump has appeared to fall asleep while in court, Haberman told CNN.

“There have been other moments in other trials like the E Jean Carroll trial which was around the corner in January, where he appeared very still and seemed as if he might be sleeping but then he would move,” Haberman said.

Haberman was referencing the defamation case that Trump lost earlier this year. Trump now owes $83.3 million in damages to Carroll, a writer that a jury ruled last year he had sexually abused.

To be sure, Trump has been making frequent appearances in courts. Besides the civil trials involving Carroll, Trump was also ordered to pay a $175 million bond on April 1 for his New York civil fraud case.

The Trump campaign later issued a statement to The Independent refuting Haberman’s report, calling the idea that Trump would fall asleep in court “100% Fake News.”

Representatives for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI sent outside regular business hours.

The former president has also been charged in three other criminal cases. This includes two federal cases relating to Trump’s alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results, and another on accusations that he hoarded classified documents in Mar-a-Lago after leaving office. None of those cases have firm trial dates set yet.
