Trump's civil fraud trial begins in New York

how is it OK that Trump is able to mock and taunt prosecutors, or judges, or reporters, and it’s all fine.

I see the precedents being set here, that it is now OK to mock, verbally assault, and attempt to intimidate judges, prosecutors, and jurors, and wonder how long it will be before a gag order on, say, a terrorist or gang member is opposed with citing the Trump trials and all the stuff he is blatently getting away with. I don’t see how any court, on appeal at least, can make such an order stick without the cognitive dissonance making heads explode. But then this is post-rational America, where emotions rule and feels are the true law of the land, right? Or are we still pretending to care about equality, justice, and the rule of law? Because the courts clearly are not.
