The "following orders" defense didn't come up UNTIL a lawyer got involved. Maybe it was a "Twinkie"...or a neighbor's dog (Son of Sam) that told him to do it...any one of a thousand things they could come up with but the "Trump made me do it" defense is so wildly popular now days they just had to stay in vogue. The only thing dumber than the "Trump made me do it defense" are the liberals spreading it around. What caused him to get his 2010 assault charge? Obama?
