Trump lawyer Alina Habba made an appearance on Fox's Hannity this Friday night to whine about the lawsuit that was dismissed this week by Judge Donald Middlebrooks of the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, where he issued a blistering rebuke of Trump's waste of the court's time.

I'm wondering how long it will take before all of Trump's lawyers end up needing lawyers of their own after the revelations about the handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago and God know what else they've aided and abetted with that we may not even know about yet.

Here's more from the Daily Beast with Habba pathetically taking the blame for filing the suit against Clinton in the first place and pretending it was all her idea instead of Trump's:

Judge Donald Middlebrooks wrote that his court “is not the appropriate forum” for Trump to “flaunt a two-hundred-page political manifesto.” Habba’s response, as told to Sean Hannity: “Well what is the proper place for him?” Habba later said she might appeal the decision, and also that Trump had told her that the case would ultimately not be a winner and she should just drop it. “I said no. We have to fight. It’s not right what happened. And you know, he was right. It’s a sad day for me personally because I fought him on it and should have listened, but I don’t want to lose hope in our system, I don’t.”

Never mind all the hundreds or more of tweets or endless rants at his rallies about how Clinton was going to jail any day now, we're supposed to believe this was all this lawyer's idea over the objection of Trump. Jebus these people know their followers are idiots.

Politics Girl has some thoughts on the lawyers that have been hired by Trump and who has been willing to work for him.
