HOT TAKES: Priceless Liberal Meltdowns After Trump Wins Reduction in Bond

Monday was supposed to be a celebration day for the anti-Trump/liberal forces where they could revel in former President Donald Trump having his properties seized because they were asking him to pony up a ridiculously unfair bond in his civil fraud case in New York so that he could appeal the judgment. 

But the day didn't go as the anti-Trump forces might have liked. 

As we reported, former President Donald Trump scored some major breathing room as a NY appellate court reduced the requisite appeal bond to $175 million and extended the deadline for paying it by 10 days. I would noted that's still a high and unfair amount given the nature of the case, but certainly a more achievable number to make. 

This decision also may be a sign that the penalty is going to get reduced on appeal, if Trump doesn't win the appeal outright. I've felt since the decision it would be reduced because it's so unhinged from reality. 

Then on top of that, Trump's net worth skyrocketed to about $6.5 billion, and according to Bloomberg making him one of the 500 wealthiest people in the world, with a merger between Trump's social media company, Trump Media & Technology Group, and a shell company, Digital World Acquisition Corp.

Anti-Trump folks/liberals were just incensed and losing their minds over the decision. In their bizarre inside out view of the world, Trump who is getting "special treatment" by having an unconscionable bond -- one that has no relation to damages -- reduced in a case that never should have been prosecuted in the first place.

The whining is just priceless. 

My favorite has to be this festival of tears from MSNBC legal commentator Tristan Snell. "This is so infuriating I don't even know what to do. I don't even know if I care what the process is," he said.

"Whatever it is, it's flawed," Snell whined. He claimed it was his own "private system of justice...It would not happen for anyone else." 

The tears are delicious. 

In a way, they're right. He is being treated in a "special" fashion, charged with things that aren't normally charged and fined beyond relation to any damages. If the anti-Trump folks cared at all about the rule of law, even if they didn't like Trump, they should care about that, they should care about the unfairness here. But they are so intent in their Trump hate, they don't care about that.
