President Trump is facing a ridiculously absurd punishment of over 700 years in prison after his recent indictment in Georgia. It’s almost comical to imagine Trump serving a sentence that would last multiple lifetimes. The Georgia case alone could result in over 70 years behind bars for the 77-year-old president, essentially a death sentence if he is convicted.
The latest indictment accuses Trump of forming a “criminal enterprise” to overturn Joe Biden’s highly controversial victory in the 2020 election. It seems absurd that Trump’s political speech about a “stolen” election and his use of alternate or “fake electors” could be considered criminal. It’s nothing more than a political dispute, but the Democrats seem determined to make it into something more.
Georgia prosecutor Fani Willis is going to incredible lengths to target Trump and 18 other individuals, including his own lawyers, by charging them under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. This law was originally intended to go after organized crime, not political disagreements. Trump is facing 20 years for the RICO charge alone, and when you add in the other charges, it adds up to a staggering 76.5 years.
But it doesn’t stop there. Trump is also facing 136 years for making “hush money” payments, a so-called crime that only seemed to exist once Trump entered politics. And let’s not forget the 450 years he could get for retaining classified documents at his own home. This is all simply prosecutorial overkill.
It’s clear that these trials are being held in heavily blue jurisdictions where Trump is unlikely to find an impartial jury. The justice system should be fair and unbiased, but it seems that’s not the case here. Trump’s ability to defend himself in the court of public opinion is also being limited, with court-ordered restrictions on what he can say while campaigning for president.

To make matters worse, we have Jack Smith digging through Trump’s private messages on Twitter without his knowledge, and the Georgia indictment was leaked before the grand jury even finished deliberating. It’s a blatant display of the Democrats’ hatred towards Trump, and it’s truly ridiculous.
But perhaps this unprecedented effort to destroy an opposition candidate will backfire. Despite all of this, Trump is still leading Joe Biden in some polls, showing that there are many Americans who see through the Democratic overreach and are standing with Trump. It’s a shocking turn of events that could ultimately lead to Trump being reelected.
