Former President Donald Trump's legal spokesperson Alina Habba was roasted online after she seemed to undermine one of the key reasons cited by Trump's legal team in their efforts to delay legal proceedings until after the 2024 election.
Habba's comments came during an interview on Fox News with Shannon Bream, who inquired about the logistics of preparing a client for multiple trials while concurrently running for president.
Habba responded by claiming Trump won't have to "prep much" for his defense because he's "done nothing wrong."
You can hear what she said in the video below.
“Yeah. If it was a normal person, honestly, Shannon, I could understand the concern."
"President Trump is not your average person. He’s incredibly intelligent and he knows the ropes. He also knows the facts because he lived them.”
“What is going to have to be prepped for? The truth? You don’t have to prep much when you’ve done nothing wrong, so that I’m not concerned with.”
This assertion seemed to conflict with one of the arguments put forth by Trump's legal team to delay any potential legal proceedings. The legal team has cited the complexity of the cases Trump faces, including a range of legal challenges from defamation suits to investigations into his business dealings.
Critics pointed out that Habba's statement appeared to downplay the legal intricacies and challenges involved in these cases.
This isn't the first time Habba has been criticized for statements she's made on behalf of her boss.
Last month, she was mocked after she, with no sense of irony whatsoever, complained laws used "for mobs" are being used against Trump.
Habba had been asked to comment on a Daily Beast report revealing former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik's cooperation with special counsel Jack Smith in the investigation of Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
She claimed unfavorable news about the former President amounts to "election interference."
She insisted—when asked by Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz to comment on potential racketeering charges Trump could face regarding his attempts to overturn election results in Georgia—racketeering is not what one would associate with a former President.
