I write a Haiku every day. That mugshot:

A two-year-old boy

An orange helium balloon

With a long red tie

I don't care what he says his weight is. We know the weight Trump has been on our country. His mug shot was the cherry topping of his booking on 13 felony counts. Take a look at that mug shot. Look at Trump's eyes. They are hard to look at but a strong reminder of the hell we continue to go through during these Years of Trump in America. His mug shot is our cruel memento of the cruelest years we have lived through in our country. Go - Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis (D)! Thank you, Joyce Vance, for guiding along the legal highways, byways, closures, and potholed roads.

WHAT A MUG SHOT! THE TRUMP YEARS IN AMERICA! MAY THEY END! IT CANNOT BE SOON ENOUGH!

We need to stop calling it a mugshot. In Trump's case it's a thugshot!

He is no longer president #45.

I believe the 2 was a typo, it's 315

He’s 215 like I’m 6 feet tall (I’m 5’4”).

215. Yes. Kilograms.

Was a medical social worker for 35 years, my estimate is 250 easily. Why would any intelligent person believe anything he says. Why would he lie about his weight and why was he allowed to self-report z. I thought the sheriff said Trump would be treated the same as any other prisoner. Guess it is his sensitive ego that got him special treatment.

Brilliant summary today, August 24. Today is a Requiem for the Republican Party as we know it. It is a sad day. Politicians, elected officials, supposed leaders of our country, of our government, and here we are. Are there no ethical people running for elected office? Have our politicians chosen the lowest common denominator for themselves after asking Americans to vote for them? The Democratic Party and President Biden will have to lead the country out of this swamp we are in. The quicksand has gobbled us up. Thank goodness for the Democratic Party, for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Stacey Abrams. Yes, Virginia, there are honest people who do want to lead us. Maybe Santa will find them for us this in December 2024, because, American voters are voting for the wrong candidates.

Since the man of a million lies fabricates everything else, who would ever accept that Mr. Pudgy is a svelte 215? Have you seen the photos of him from behind on a golf course? It's like when a driver blows past me on a road where I'm driving at the speed limit; I may not know his exact speed, but I can attest to the fact that it's a hell of a lot faster than me.

Not a chance he’s 6’3” and the only 70+ year old who hasn’t shrunk. Much less of a chance he weighs 215. I’m angry they let him get away with this--he should have been weighed and height measured like every other criminal.

He’s 215 but Mark Meadows is 240?? Nah...

My guess is 283. They should not have allowed that. Question is why.

Good to see you on the tube today. Always good to have your insights of the cases before us. I am fully convinced he will not be the Republican nominee and like many, if not most, of his followers and people who have voted for him in the past will not do it again. It's over for him, life and justice has finally caught up with him; I will go out on a limb and predict he will be convicted on all 4 indictments, and he will have to be selling that plane and whatever else he can get his hands on...no help from kids.
