Truth : Judge Merchan Has Not Blocked Donald Trump From Barron’s Graduation… Yet

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating online, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Juan Merchan Said Trump Could Possibly Attend Graduation

Let me start by simply pointing out that New York Judge Juan Merchan has not ruled on whether Donald Trump can skip the trial to attend Barron Trump’s graduation ceremony.

On Monday, April 15, Judge Merchan said that he received requests from Donald Trump’s attorneys for the former president to miss the trial on May 17, to attend his son’s graduation from the Oxbridge Academy. They also asked for the trial to be adjourned on June 3, as one of Trump’s attorneys wanted to attend their son’s graduation.

Judge Merchan explained that he could not rule at this time, because it would depend on whether the trial was running on schedule. In fact, Judge Merchan said that it’s possible that he might adjourn the case, and allow Donald Trump and his lawyer to attend their sons’ graduation!

If everything is going according to schedule then I’m sure we’ll be able to adjourn for one or both of those days.

But if we’re running behind schedule we will not be able to. It really depends on if we are on time and where we are in the trial.

To be clear – Judge Juan Merchan did not say that Donald Trump is not allowed to attend Barron Trump’s graduation. He has not made that determination yet, and he left open the possibility that he might allow Donald Trump to attend his son’s graduation.

Fact #2 : Donald Trump Did Not Say He Cannot Attend Barron’s Graduation

Even more damning – Donald Trump himself did not say that he won’t be able to attend Barron Trump’s graduation. This was what he posted in his Truth Social post, with the relevant part in bold:

Who will explain for me, to my wonderful son, Barron, who is a GREAT Student at a fantastic School, that his Dad will likely not be allowed to attend his Graduation Ceremony

As you can see – Donald Trump himself only said that he will “likely not be allowed” to attend Barron’s graduation ceremony. He never actually said that Judge Juan Merchan told him he could not attend his son’s graduation.

Later in his Truth Social post, he said that the judged was “preventing me from proudly attending” his son’s graduation. But that was only because Judge Juan Merchan would not rule on the matter yet.

Fact #3 : Donald Trump Not Required To Attend Supreme Court Hearing

Judge Juan Merchan only refused to allow Donald Trump to go to the Supreme Court on April 25 for oral arguments related to his claim of presidential immunity.

That’s because Donald Trump is not required to be present for the oral arguments at the Supreme Court, whereas he is required to attend the New York court for his criminal case, as Judge Merchan pointed out to Trump attorney Todd Blanche:

Your client is a criminal defendant in New York County Supreme Court. He’s required to be here. He is not required to be in the Supreme Court.

As Donald Trump was not required to attend the oral arguments at the Supreme Court, there was no reason for Judge Merchan to grant him another delay.

Fact #4 : Melania Was Allegedly Pregnant During Trump’s Affair

Ironically, this Barron Trump graduation controversy comes at the start of the case that revolved around not one, but two affairs, Donald Trump allegedly had during Melania’s pregnancy, and after she gave birth to Barron Trump, as Ron Filipkowski pointed out:

Trump is crying about supposedly having to miss Barron’s graduation when the state is introducing evidence that he was having an affair with a Playboy model the entire time Melania was pregnant. And that was before Stormy.

While Judge Merchan agreed to allow prosecutors to introduce evidence of that alleged affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal, he blocked “bringing up that the defendant’s wife was pregnant and this went on and even after she gave birth“.

Perhaps it might not be a good idea for Donald Trump to attend his son’s graduation after all, as it could embarrass his son in front of his classmates…
