A senior legal adviser to Donald Trump ― who once described the president as an “idiot” and a “bully” ― drew widespread ridicule over her attempted depiction of him as a hero on Tuesday night.
Jenna Ellis, part of the Trump legal team trying to overturn the 2020 election result (despite no evidence of the mass voter fraud they claim), tweeted a picture of Trump leaning on the Oval Office desk alongside the caption: “WARRIOR.”
Critics had a field day over the photo.
Journalist Mehdi Hasan, meanwhile, noted how Trump in the 1990s had called avoiding contracting sexually transmitted infections to “my personal Vietnam.”
From the Oval Office he could literally do anything he wanted, anything in the world, but he chose to cosplay his character from the apprentice

‘In…interviews during the 1990s, Trump compared trying to avoid [STDS] to “my personal Vietnam.” “It’s pretty dangerous out there,” he said in 1993. “It’s like Vietnam.” He added in 1996: “I feel like a very great and very brave soldier.”‘https://t.co/gaJKdOEjit https://t.co/v5FueFw0R7

Donald Trump is much more Benito Mussolini than Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Is Jenna Ellis really a lawyer or is this all just performance art? pic.twitter.com/l2gviIk7D0
