Don’t Buy Anything Just Yet


OPINION: This article could comprise commentary which displays the writer’s opinion.

Former President Donald Trump’s lawyer and spokeswoman provided some free authorized recommendation to author E. Jean Carroll after a jury awarded her an eye-popping $84.3 million settlement in a defamation trial this month: Don’t spend the cash simply but.

During an interview on Newsmax TV with host Eric Bolling, Habba attacked Carroll for providing to buy MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow a penthouse condominium and new garments following a jury’s resolution.

“It was like being in an epic Twilight Zone where no rules were allowed but for the other side, and then she goes out there and gloats and says she’s gonna buy France, and a wardrobe, and a motorcycle, and this and that. I want everyone to remember, and I said this in my closing argument to the jury: she’s here to get a check, and after this, she will continue. She didn’t care, you know, about the defamation. She didn’t. She cared about the publicity,” Habba mentioned.

“On appeal, those rulings will come up, the one-sidedness will come up, and we will prevail,” predicted Habba, earlier than concluding, “My advice to her would be not to go ahead and purchase any motorcycles or penthouse apartments.”



During her interview with Maddow, Carroll was requested about her earlier statements implying that any funds she would obtain from Trump can be allotted particularly to “help shore up women’s rights.”

“Yes, Rachel! Yes!” Carroll responded. “I had such, such great ideas for all the good I’m gonna do with this money.”

“First thing, Rachel, you and I are gonna go shopping!” she exclaimed. “We’re gonna get complete new wardrobes, new shoes, motorcycle for [Carroll’s attorney Shawn] Crowley, a new fishing rod for Robbie [Carroll’s attorney Roberta Kaplan] — Rachel, what do you want? A penthouse? It’s yours, Rachel! Penthouse in France? You want France? You want to go fishing in France? No?”

As Maddow giggled at Carroll’s remarks, Carroll’s legal professional jumped in and mentioned, “That’s a joke.”

The video went viral after quite a few people said that her feedback eroded her credibility.

Fox News contributor Joe Concha mentioned, “If you needed any more proof this whole suit and verdict was a crock, here it is. And of course, Maddow still soaks it all up while not realizing how damaging this is.”

Meanwhile, in a brand new growth, one other of Trump’s attorneys made a exceptional assertion that needs to be thought-about in an attraction.

“Carroll first went public with her story in 2019, posing for a cover of New York Magazine in the Donna Karan blazer dress that she claims she was assaulted in. However, it turns out the dress was not even available the original year that she claimed the attack happened,” Breitbart News reported final week.

Trump Attorney Boris Epshteyn instructed reporters outdoors the courtroom: “She said, this is the dress I wore in 1994. They went back, they checked. The dress wasn’t even made in 1994.”

“And that’s why the date’s moved around. This is the 80s. Is it the 90s? Is it the 2000s? President Trump has consistently stated that he was falsely accused, and he has the right to defend himself,” Epshteyn added.

Trump has additionally addressed the allegations.

“E. Jean Carroll was forced to change her story on the ‘Monica Lewinsky-type’ dress,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform.

“She originally claimed that the ‘event’ happened in 1994, and that she wore the Donna Karan dress on that day. The problem is that New York Times Fact Checkers found the dress wasn’t even made by Donna Karan until long after 1994,” Trump added.

“The truth is that she doesn’t know the day, month, season, year, or decade — because it did not happen. End this Witch Hunt now!”

He added: “Until the filing of this ridiculous lawsuit against me, I knew nothing about this woman, never heard of her, never touched her, had nothing to do with her. THIS IS A FALSE ACCUSATION FORCED INTO THE PUBLIC EYE BY DEMOCRAT OPERATIVES LIKE HER LAWYER, HER FUNDERS, AND OTHERS.”

“LOOK AT HER MANY CRAZY TWEETS, THEY SAY IT ALL — Another HOAX, just like Russia, Russia, Russia. These people are ‘SICK.’ Hopefully Judge Kaplan will see the light and do what is just and proper for America!” he exclaimed.
