( – On Monday Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) attended the New York hush money trial along with former President Donald Trump and he referred to the courtroom as the “most depressing thing” he has ever attended. 

Tuberville told the media outside the courtroom that he was disappointed during the hearing because everyone was referring to Donald Trump as “Mr. Trump” instead of “former President Trump. He added that people needed to give respect but currently in the courtroom there was “no respect.” He pointed out that this is what he was seeing and it was “depressing.” 

During his media statement, Tuberville slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) who he claimed entered the courtroom acting as if he was in the Super Bowl.” 

Tuberville was not the only Congressman attending the trial on Monday as he was joined by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) and Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio). He added that his presence at the trial was more because he was a friend of Trump than because he was a political supporter. 

He added that Trump, who is the presumptive Republican nominee, is “going through mental anguish” and that this is why he had joined him in the courtroom to support him as his friend and not as a presidential candidate. 

Tuberville’s statements had come on the day of Trump’s former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony in the hush money case. Trump is facing charges for falsifying 34 business records in connection to a payment of $130,000 made by Cohen to adult film star Stormy Daniels on Trump’s behalf in exchange for her remaining quiet about their alleged affair. Trump has denied the affair and has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
