Hours before former President Donald Trump‘s arraignment, Trump’s son, Don Trump Jr., posted a picture of the judge’s daughter. Trump Jr. called his father’s arraignment a “hand-picked Democrat show trial” just hours before the judge ruled on a potential gag order for the former president.

Trump Jr. posted a Breitbart News article to his Truth Social page, implying Judge Juan Merchan couldn’t be impartial in the case. The news story alleges that Merchan’s daughter worked for the Biden/Harris campaign in 2020. The story kept an image of the judge’s daughter in the thumbnail. Her company, in fact, had done work for the campaigns of numerous Democrats, including Biden and Harris.

“Seems relevant… yet another connection in this hand-picked Democrat show trial. The BS never ends folks,” Trump Jr. wrote in the post.

Hours after the post, Merchan decided not to place a gag order on Trump. He did, however, order Trump not to incite political violence during the trial. Trump has repeatedly questioned New York City officials in public since his indictment was revealed.
