Spurned by top lawyers, Trump’s defense elevates Washington, outsider a medieval historian to defend him – Reuters

This is stunning:
(Reuters) – A little-known former prosecutor with a doctorate in medieval history will play a central role on U.S. President Donald Trump’s legal team, as many top-tier lawyers shy away from representing him in a probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Although sometimes I feel like I’m living in medieval times under this regime getting a scholar who is proficient in it does not seem like a very good defense strategy for the president of the United States of America. And yet here it is, the soap opera or rather the reality show that is our government today continues. If I told you yesterday that a medieval scholar would be in charge of helping the president of the United States in his attempt to keep his office you would laugh at me. And here we are.

No top-tier attorney was willing to take on this President. Why should have talked to your attorney even a republican one want to? This man has proven that he lies, will perjure himself and has absolutely no way of controlling his mouth or his Twitter account for that matter. He mocks being presidential as if it’s some sort of bad thing. It’s what has gotten us through almost 250 years and I can’t wait till we get back to a presidential President, and that’s a president with a capital P unlike the one we have now.
