Trump lies about his gag order, gaslighting the media. Anthony Davis reports.

Donald Trump claimed that he is unable to take the stand as a witness in his New York hush-money trial because he is under a gag order. This is a lie. On Friday Judge Juan Merchan directly addressed the claim in court. “It came to my attention that there may be [confusion on] extrajudicial statements and how it impacts Mr. Trump’s right to testify,” he said. “I want to stress, Mr. Trump, that you have the absolute right to testify at trial. That is a constitutional right that cannot be denied or infringed upon.” Merchan added that “the order does not prohibit you from taking the stand, in fact as the name suggests, it’s extrajudicial statements — that is statements that are made outside of court — [that are prohibited]. It does not apply to statements made from the witness stand."
