‘Bring your toothbrush’: Ex-judge puts Trump on notice that he will ‘sit in a jail cell’

A former judge has a warning for Donald Trump: bring your toothbrush, because a jail cell is in your future.

Retired California Superior Court Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell, during an appearance on CNN on Sunday, was asked about Trump’s recent decision to attack the family of the judge in the former president’s criminal case. In one instance, Trump posted multiple photos of the judge’s daughter.

During her interview, Cordell said Trump, “just like a child, has to be told what he cannot do no matter how obvious like, you don’t threaten people, you don’t threaten judges, you don’t threaten family members.”

“So Judge Merchan I believe should immediately expand the gag order to include himself and his family members and include D.A. Bragg and his family members,” she said. “I tell you I fail to understand why judges do not include themselves and their family members in these gag orders. They haven’t done so. Their lives and the lives of their families have been subjected to death threats, all because of Donald Trump’s words, and that kind of speech is not protected by the First Amendment.”

The host then asks her what happens “when” Trump breaks the gag order.

“When and not if, I think you’re right, Omar, when he steps across that gag order line, and I do hope it will be expanded,” she said she has “only one response: bring your toothbrush, Donald Trump, because you’re going to sit in a jail cell for a while.”

She added that “there has to be an immediate consequence when he defies a court order.”

“That is a normal response, you can not have a court system that is subjected to these kinds of threats and intimidation.”
