Former President Trump’s claim to be a Fox News anchor New York court staff were “crying” and apologizing for a felony charge is “absolute BS” and out of line with what happened, a law enforcement source familiar with the details of what happened that day told Yahoo News.

Asked how much truth there was to Trump’s colorful account, the source said, “Zero.” “There were zero people crying. There were zero people saying ‘I’m sorry.'”

Trump presented his version of events An interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson It aired Tuesday night.

“When I went to court, he kind of signed me to jail, and I’m telling you, people were crying,” Trump told Carlson. “The people who work there, who work there professionally, have no problem letting murderers in and see everybody. It’s a very difficult place, and they were crying. They were really crying. I’m sorry. They said 2024, sir. 2024′ had tears in their eyes.

In fact, the source said, aside from his lawyers and Secret Service agents, Trump had only met with a handful of district attorney staffers at the courthouse and had very limited contact with others at his arraignment in Lower Manhattan last Tuesday.

Once there, Trump was told of the charges against him, 34 counts of falsifying business records to hide payments to a sex movie star in the waning days of the 2016 presidential election. Representatives of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who accompanied the former president through the process, said little during the booking, the source said.

The only quibble came when his fingers were too dry for fingerprints, at which point the district attorney’s staff applied lotion to his fingers, the source added.

Carlson’s friendly interview with Trump was especially funny when it came down to it. It’s on the eve of a trial scheduled to begin Monday in Delaware, where Carlson is scheduled to testify along with fellow host Sean Hannity and several Fox executives. 1.6 billion dollar defamation suit Dominion Voting Systems was featured on Fox News for airing claims of election fraud by Trump and his surrogates in 2020.

The indictment features several internal emails and texts by Carlson, in which he expresses his personal disdain for Trump and dismisses claims of fraud and vote-rigging by his lawyers. I never share it with the audience..

“We’re too close to ignore Trump most nights,” Carlson said about Trump in a January 4, 2021, article to a colleague.

In other exchanges, Carlson privately called Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s claims of Dominion vote exclusions “crazy” and “absurd.”

However, in an interview Tuesday night, Carlson did not challenge or push back on any of Trump’s statements, including an unusual exchange about the Biden administration’s failure to rescue German shepherds from Afghanistan.

“They gave up everything,” Trump said. Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. “They went out in the dark of night. They left the light. By the way, they left the dogs behind.

“Have you left the dogs?” Carlson asked.

“They let the dogs out,” Trump replied. “You know, dog lovers, and you know there are a lot of them. I like dogs. You love dogs. One of the first questions I got was, ‘What did you do with the dogs?’ Mostly German shepherds. They left them. The way they came out was horrible. … We would go out with strength and glory.

In her memoir, “Raising Trump,” the ex-wife of the former president, Ivana, wrote that Trump “He was not a fan of dogs” and often expressed disdain for her poodle, Chappy.
