Trump says Supreme Court delivered ‘high level spanking’ to Jack Smith

After the Supreme Court ruled former President Donald Trump has some immunity from charges surrounding his conduct after the 2020 election, the presumptive GOP nominee slammed special counsel Jack Smith on Tuesday.

“A really bad day for Deranged Jack Smith, the wacko prosecutor used for Crooked Joe Biden’s attack on his Political Opponent,” Trump said in a post to Truth Social. “Today, as in the past, the Supreme Court gave the Deranged One a high level SPANKING!”

“His ‘real’ bosses, Andrew Weissmann and Lisa Monaco, not to mention Merrick Garland, whose once great reputation has been shattered by these Thugs, and his constant defense of Crooked Joe, must be furious at him,” the former president continued. “Garland ought to call an end to this never ending HOAX, and let people focus on bringing back Greatness to America!”


On Monday, the Supreme Court dealt a blow to Smith’s Jan. 6 election interference case against Trump. Smith has long argued that Trump’s behavior leading up to and following the 2020 presidential election violated U.S. law. However, the former president says he should have total immunity for actions performed within the boundaries of his official presidential duties. 

A 6-3 decision by the high court delivered a partial win to Trump, agreeing that certain official acts by presidents are not prosecutable at all, while other actions require the government to clear a high bar before it can bring charges. The decision means that much of the evidence Smith brought against Trump could be tossed out, as it came from actions Trump performed within the perimeter of his official capacity as president.

The Supreme Court’s ruling makes it unlikely the Jan. 6 case will be heard before the 2024 presidential election. On Monday, Trump campaign adviser Alina Habba told Fox News she believed the lower court’s act to reexamine the case would “slow down Jack Smith’s persecution and selective prosecution of President Trump.”

“I don’t see how this case could go forward before the election,” Habba said.
