The crowd went wild on Saturday night when a collection of the right’s favorite figures showed up at the UFC fight in Madison Square Garden. Those figures, of course, were former president and leading 2024 GOP candidate Donald Trump, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, country rock star Kid Rock, and UFC head Dana White.
The announcer, as Trump dramatically entered the area flanked by Tucker, Kid Rock, and Dana White, boomed, “Making his way into the building, one of the bigger mixed marital arts fans I know—President Donald Trump. taking his Octagon-side seat for UFC 295.”
Watch Trump, Tucker, Don. Jr., and Kid Rock receive their exceptionally warm greeting from the UFC crowd here:
Here’s another awesome clip:
The New York crowd’s wild applause and support for Trump comes amid his legal battle in the city with New York Attorney General Letitia James over what she alleges was fraud committed by the Trump Organization when it valued its assets for the purposes of loans and insurance.
Trump, posting about the situation along with the other legal battles he is facing on his Truth Social platform, said, “I am the victim of a corrupt legal system that is being used by those surrounding Crooked Joe Biden, with his full knowledge & consent, to hurt, demean, and damage his Political Opponent, ME. A terrible precedent is being set, but so far, despite the vulgarity & viciousness of it all, it has driven my poll numbers to record numbers. You see, the American people are MUCH smarter than Crooked Joe! They see what is going on with a Corrupt & Racist New York State A.G., and a Trump Hating Puppet Judge willing to do her dirty work, even as it takes him, and his reputation, to new levels of low.”
Continuing, he added, “They fully understand the Obama appointed, Radical Left D.C. Federal Judge, who refused to recuse, fully “gagged” me, and set a trial date THE DAY BEFORE “Super Tuesday,” the biggest & most powerful day in the Primaries. They get the fact that A.G. Garland and his boss, Lisa Monaco, sent their TOP DOJ lawyer to Manhattan to run the District Attorney’s “case” on me…And Much More. BUT WE WILL WIN!!!”
In another post on the topic, he said, “Deranged Jack Smith, Andrew Weissmann, Lisa Monaco, the “team of losers and misfits” from CREW, and all the rest of the Radical Left Zealots and Thugs who have been working illegally for years to “take me down,” will end up, because of their suffering from a horrible disease, TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME (TDS!), in a Mental Institution by the time my next term as President is successfully completed. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
In still another, he argued, “Nobody can believe this Political Witch Hunt Trial is still going on. No Victims, No Witnesses (their witness recanted his FAKE story, and said he Lied!), No Defaults, No Jury, No Nothing, only happy Banks etc. There was FRAUD, however, but by the Judge and the A.G., in saying that Mar-a-Lago was worth only $18,000,000, when they knew it was worth many times that amount. They just wanted to make me look bad – All a big SCAM by the New York A.G. in order to get elected, and then to run for Governor, unsuccessfully. The Trump Hating Judge MUST WITHDRAW his “bull….” early ruling (before the trial even started. HE KNEW NONE OF THE FACTS!). He is devastated by the TRUTH, but just can’t let it go. He is OBSESSED! Any other Judge but this one would have dismissed this ridiculous lawsuit years ago. He asked me to settle for a MUCH LOWER AMOUNT, at a settlement conference, but I said NO, I DID NOTHING WRONG! Businesses will NEVER come back to New York if this HOAX is not dismissed & forgotten!”
