Larry David Trolls Trump By Recreating His Georgia Mugshot On ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

This is the last season of Larry David’s brilliant HBO comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and the show is going out with a major bang based on the first episode which aired Sunday.

The episode, “Atlanta,” mocks new election laws in the state of Georgia which make it a crime for anyone to provide water to voters who are standing in line to cast a ballot in the Peach State.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

 “At the end of the episode, David was arrested for inadvertently breaking state law by providing water to a friend waiting in line to vote. ‘I was just being cordial!’ David screams as he’s dragged away.”

Executive producer Jeff Schaffer noted that the episode was shot in Atlanta around the same time disgraced former president Donald Trump was forced to show up for booking and a mugshot.

“Trump gets caught with one of his many hands in one of the many cookie jars, and I remember just walking in and I said to Larry, ‘This is crazy. You’re in Atlanta, he’s in Atlanta, you just got arrested. Let’s do this!’ We had to wait until the strike was over to even be able to shoot Larry looking like our former Oompa Loompa. So it came completely afterwards.”

Here’s David’s mugshot:

Fani Willis Claps Back Hard At Jim Jordan: ‘You Lack A Basic Understanding Of The Law’

Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis has had quite enough of the petty threats and other distractions from House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and she’s responding to his childish actions by reminding him that his knowledge of the law is tenuous at best.

Jordan has repeatedly accused Willis of trying to “interfere” in the 2024 election by charging former president Donald Trump as part of a racketeering conspiracy to overturn the results of balloting in the Peach State as part of the 2020 election, which Trump lost in an electoral landslide.

Focusing on a letter Jordan sent in August, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Willis accused the congressman of using “inaccurate information and misleading statements” for his own political gain.

“Its obvious purpose is to obstruct a Georgia criminal proceeding and to advance outrageous misrepresentations,” Willis said in response to Jordan’s letter. “As I make clear below, there is no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter, as you attempt to do.”

Willis also noted that Jordan was legally ignorant.

“Your letter makes clear that you lack a basic understanding of the law, its practice and the ethical obligations of attorneys generally and prosecutors specifically.”

It should be noted that Jordan never sat for the bar exam in his home state and has never actually practiced law, as MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell noted in a brutal takedown of the Ohio Republican earlier this year.

“An Ohioan who is a graduate of Capital University Law School, but has never passed the bar exam – so is not a lawyer – Congressman Jim Jordan got a reply to his letter from Harvard Law School graduate Alvin Bragg, the district attorney of Manhattan.”

“Alvin Bragg’s reply letter to Jim Jordan is the single most humiliating letter ever received by a chairman of the House Judiciary Committee – every one of whom has known much more about the law than Jim Jordan.”

Jim Jordan is a sycophantic jackass who wants to advance his political career when he isn’t busy serving as Donald Trump’s full-time fluffer. He’s an embarrassment to his party, the Congress, and the United States.

Court Documents Reveal Mark Meadows And Other Co-Defendants Are Already Flipping On Trump

With each day and each new court filing from attorneys representing co-conspirators who allegedly worked with disgraced former president Donald Trump to try and overturn 2020 election results in the state of Georgia, it becomes clearer that many of those charged are eager and willing to toss the ex-president under the bus in order to save their own asses, according to a report from Politico.

One of those co-defendants is former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

During a hearing in Atlanta, a defense attorney for Meadows called attention to Trump’s prominent role in what is certain to be a crucial element of prosecutors’ case there: the infamous Jan. 2, 2021, phone call in which Trump demanded that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, “find” enough votes to declare Trump the winner.

Meadows arranged that pivotal call. But after prosecutors played audio of the call in the courtroom, an attorney for Meadows emphasized that his client’s part in the actual discussion was both more minor and less provocative than Trump’s.

“There’s a lot of statements by Mr. Trump. Mr. Meadows’ speaking roles were quite limited,” Meadows’ lawyer, Michael Francisco, observed as he cross-examined Raffensperger, who was called to testify by prosecutors.

“He didn’t make a request that you change the vote totals — Mr. Meadows, himself?” Francisco continued.

“Correct,” Raffensperger replied.

And then there was this, which also appeared in court documents:

Meadows made clear in his own testimony at last week’s hearing that Trump viewed the false electors as a significant part of his strategy to remain in power. He said he sent an email pushing the campaign to assemble those slates because he feared a tongue-lashing from Trump.

“What I didn’t want to happen was for the campaign to prevail in court action and not have this” lined up, he said.

“Why?” prosecutor Anna Cross asked him.

“Because I knew I’d be yelled at by the president of the United States,” he said.

The Georgia racketeering charges filed against Trump and 18 co-defendants by Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis could send each person to prison in the Peach State for decades, meaning that everyone associated with the conspiracy has a strong incentive to cooperate with prosecutors or prepare for a long term of incarceration.

Trump has also been indicted in Florida and Washington, D.C. by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Joe Biden Reacts To Trump’s Mugshot – And His Comments Are Laced With Some MAJOR Shade

Though he has refrained from commenting on the legal problems facing failed former president Donald Trump, President Joe Biden was asked for his thoughts today on the mugshot taken Thursday in Georgia of the disgraced ex-president.

What did you about the picture? A reporter inquired.

Biden (with perfect deadpan): “Handsome guy. Wonderful guy.”

Twitter immediately lit up with applause for Biden, with many noting that the shade he directed at Trump was epic.

Trump’s Scowling Mugshot Has Spawned Some Of The Best Memes Of 2023

It’s no exaggeration to call it the photograph seen around the world. It’s an image that rocketed across social media platforms Thursday evening and was shared millions of times before Friday even dawned.

The photograph, of course, is the mugshot taken of failed, disgraced former president Donald Trump when he was booked in Fulton County, Georgia.

Some Trump supporters desperately tried to spin the photo as no big deal, asserting that the former guy looked defiant and focused.

But the vast majority of comments about the mugshot noted how stern, sinister, and downright evil Donald looked, almost as if he was hoping to blind the person taking the photo with his glare.

Something good has come from the mugshot, however: The memes, which have proliferated on the internet today. Some of these are almost guaranteed to be in the running for best of 2023. Take a look.
