Will convicted Snoozy-Insurrectionist-Cry-Baby-trump attempt to make his conviction appeal on, "he is an old guy with a bad memory?"

If it comes down to it, I fully expect his legal team to try and appeal a jail sentence on the grounds that he is not mentally competent to understand the charges against him.

That would be a “when all else fails” defense. Age alone wouldn’t be enough. He’d have to be examined by a panel of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals and would require MRI/PET/CT scans and other medical evidence to at least arrive at a “more likely than not” degree of mental incapacity to justify the claim.

@DocSavage The only way it would happen (unless ordered by a court) would be a defense when all other options failed strictly to keep him out of prison.

I won’t get into the holes in this defense because I doubt we’ll actually see it come into play.

@KunsanVeteran But, he will definitely testify... no question. I mean, he wants to testify. He's not afraid to testify. He will definitely do it.

@KunsanVeteran Of course the court can order him to have a competency evaluation if they have reason to…
