Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. From his alleged links to organized crime to his hilarious legal defense strategies, Trump has managed to keep us all entertained. But the question on everyone's mind is, is Trump a gangster? I am so confused. Let's dive in and find out.

Firstly, let's address the elephant in the room. Trump's alleged links to organized crime. Now, Trump has denied these allegations, but evidence suggests otherwise. For years, during his business career, Trump worked or associated with proven or alleged mobsters. And let's be real, it's not like he's hiding it. I mean, have you seen his hair? That's a clear indication that he's not afraid of making bold statements.

But let's not jump to conclusions just yet. Maybe Trump just has a thing for bad boys. I mean, who wouldn't want to hang out with a bunch of guys who wear fedoras and carry around tommy guns? It's like being in a Scorsese movie, but in real life. And let's be honest, Trump would make a great mob boss. He already has the perfect catchphrase - "You're fired!" - which could easily be replaced with "You're sleeping with the fishes!"

Now, let's talk about Trump's legal defense strategies. His team has been criticized for equating his trial to that of the Scottsboro Boys, nine Black teenagers who were denied due process and sentenced to death without consulting counsel. I mean, come on. That's like comparing apples to oranges. Or in Trump's case, comparing fake tan to real skin.

But you have to give it to Trump's lawyers. They really know how to put on a show. Their use of cartoon comparisons and impassioned oral advocacy is truly something to behold. It's like watching a bunch of clowns trying to juggle chainsaws. You know it's going to end badly, but you just can't look away.

And let's not forget about the 11.5 million pages of documents presented to Trump in discovery. His lawyers argued that he would be unfairly prejudiced by this overwhelming amount of evidence and that he could not possibly prepare an effective defense without a hefty delay. But U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan was having none of it. She set a trial date for March 4, 2024, which gives Trump plenty of time to perfect his gangster persona.

In conclusion, is Trump a gangster? I am still confused. But one thing is for sure, he knows how to keep us entertained. From his alleged links to organized crime to his hilarious legal defense strategies, Trump has managed to capture our attention and keep us on the edge of our seats. So, let's sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. And who knows, maybe one day we'll see Trump starring in his own Scorsese movie.
