Why do you need to see a face anyway?

Laslo Spatula said...

The upper left is a disclaimer that recording of the hearing is prohibited.

So what criminal released this threat to the judicial system?

And why shouldn't Trump use cat lawyers in the impeachment trial?

I am Laslo.

Yancey Ward said...

It would scare the rats in the senate.

robother said...

When the facts are on your side, pound the facts, when the law is on your side, pound the law. When neither is on your side, on the internet appear as a cat video.

bleh said...

Ah, Rex Chapman stealing content and failing to attribute once again.

Ann Althouse said...

@bleh You know the original source?

Oso Negro said...

2021 is showing early to be quite the year. It's good to be a cat.

Gilbert Pinfold said...

On the internet, no one know you're a dog.

Ann Althouse said...

There, I've embedded a more original source.

Hanks also tweets that she has permission to share.... for the public good. Everyone can learn from this.

I am not an animal. I am a human being.

Kitty is the judge and jury? might as well be.
It's in our Smollett constitutions of false flag operations.

It is SO obvious! I can not believe you didn't get it. Cat lawyers are NOT bound by human lawyer standards. Among other differences, they are able to "pounce" on mistakes by witnesses and if the the mistake is egregious enough, are by cat law, permitted to eat them.

You DON'T want to purger yourself to a cat lawyer!

tommyesq said...

It's a good move by the lawyer - who could say no to that sad kitty face??!!

Nonapod said...

A cat defense lawyer would be crafty, but if the prosecuting attorney's had a laser pointer you might be in trouble.

Freeman Hunt said...

Ha! Hysterical. This is why I log into a Zoom test meeting before every actual Zoom meeting.

bleh said...

@bleh You know the original source?

I don't, but I just know that Rex Chapman isn't the original source. Apologies for letting my irritation show. That guy is the worst at Twitter.

Tomcc said...

I'm somehow pleased that the attorney didn't know how to turn off the filter; it suggests that he doesn't use such frivolous things. Now, the judge...

Ken B said...

Since Biden took office more Americans have died of Covid than were killed in Vietnam.

Once upon a time this would have been big news. But Americans mostly don’t give a shit.
The Covidiot denialists are in so deep that they won’t admit error if the death toll reaches 10 million(“They said 11 million!”)
The Biden worshippers will stay silent for obvious reasons.
Protesters in huge crowds: *shrug*
The media cares more about words said in Peru.

It’s a massive moral failure.

Yancey Ward said...

On lawyers and Trump, here is a comment about the recent execution of Brandon Bernard as seen from the Oval Office. I don't know the veracity of this comment, but it does ring true to me. And if it is true, it makes me wonder what Starr actually did with Trump's suggestion.

tcrosse said...

It would exploit his pussy expertise.



Freeman Hunt said...

When the cat's eyes moved, I lost it.

Clyde said...

That was hilarious!

Cheryl said...

I broke my nose today so I'm laying in bed trying to be still. This video is absolutely hilarious and unbelievably painful for me. Should have come with a warning.

stevew said...

"I'm not a cat."

"Got it. Thanks for clearing that up."

Me: that's pretty funny.

JPS said...

Wow.

Judge Roy Ferguson has a remarkable ability to not burst into laughter despite wonderful fodder. He is right up there with retired Admiral Robert "Rat" ("we *don't* anticipate [Guam tipping over]") Willard.

Yancey Ward said...

Pray tell us, Ken, what you would have done to save those who died.

n.n said...

But did he wear a hat, boots in a pride parade? Lions, lionesses, and cubs, oh my.

Ann Althouse said...

"And somehow we're able with withstand"

Actually, I appreciate it. I replaced what I had and I appreciate the nudge to do that right away.

Ann Althouse said...

"I broke my nose today so I'm laying in bed trying to be still. This video is absolutely hilarious and unbelievably painful for me. Should have come with a warning."

Yeah, I laughed so hard it was painful and I don't even have any ailments to aggravate.

Hope you are feeling better. Sorry about your nose.

Readering said...

The lawyer needed Toobin to show how zoom is manipulated..

Rosalyn C. said...

I needed to laugh today. Thanks.

This is a great idea for Sleepy Joe -- use a filter of a younger version of himself for his Oval Office announcements.

Endless possibilities, Kamala as Wonder Woman would be nice.

Wince said...

The funniest part is how well the voice matches the cat face!

It's like Pixar-level casting.

5M said...

This gave me a good laugh. Well done lawyer.

Wince said...

Seriously, this guy could be the next Sterling Holloway.

Ann Althouse said...

I wish I had a button on my tv to turn David Schoen into a kitty cat.

Wince said...

Best LSAT memes.

"All wanted was to be a lawyer!"

"The LSAT"

D.D. Driver said...

Not A Cat Lawyer was the hero I needed today.

Ken B said...

Everyone laughs, but think about what happens next time, when the lawyer really is a cat and no one believes him.

Tomcc said...

"But Americans mostly don’t give a shit."
Thank goodness we have Canadians to do that for us.
I will point out that the pandemic was neither caused nor exacerbated by those you term "denialists".

Nice. Natalie Wood (Susan Walker) riff from "Miracle on 34th Street"?

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Aww...he is so cute as a confused cat. He should prevail/win his case. How can you turn down such a sweet kitty.

This made me laugh a lot. Thanks for posting!!!!

DocTeach said...

Oh this is the best. Thank you. I'm still laughing.

Lucien said...

Jeffrey Toobin now just uses a still of a cat washing its crotch for his Zoom meetings.

Big Mike said...

I wish I had a button on my tv to turn David Schoen into a kitty cat.

I thought you weren’t going to watch the trial (lest your biases be challenged).

MadisonMan said...

I must be in a bad mood today. All I could think was: What kind of idiot is this lawyer. Maybe I've just been in too many Zoom Meetings. Interrupting the flow of the meeting with stupid stuff like this crumbles my cookies. (I've just created that metaphor)

MadisonMan said...

Or maybe I should say it clumps up my kitty litter.

TheOne Who Is Not Obeyed said...

@KellyM

John Hurt as John Merrick in The Elephant Man. Stated without passion, unlike in the movie.

Mikio said...

Pretty sure my neighbors heard me laughing at that.

Witness said...

I had already seen this on twitter, but I laughed just as hard watching it again here. Thanks for sharing!

Mikey NTH said...

I had the cat walk across the desk during an administrative hearing on-line. We dealt with it.

"of" or with, Ken?

John Henry

John henry said...

And how's her majesty's government doing up in the great whiten Orth, Ken?

Canada's death's per thousand are not that far behind the US. Testing is waaaay behind. About 60% of the US rate.

It wouldn't surprise me if on an apples to apples basis your death rate was higher than the US.

And your queen, and her appointee Trudeau, are doing nothing to make it stop. Doing lots of stuff, like locking Canadian subjects in Chinese owned hotels.

But no stuff to reduce the lamentable death rate.

Canada needs to revolt and become an actual, independent, country.

How can anyone respect a colony that allows itself to be subject to those nutso Windsors?

I don't

John Henry

Lurker21 said...

"Lawyer not a cat" is not news. It's like "dog bites man."

If the lawyer actually was a cat that would be real, "man bites dog" news.


The Godfather said...

G*d I am SO glad I retired before all this remote shit! The next video will show the cat-lawyer licking his private parts.

Arashi said...

Well as long as the cat lawyer passed the BAR exam, why should we care if it is a cat or not a cat?

rehajm said...

Lawyer: "I'm not a cat"

Judge: "I can see that"

The judge can see that? Must be the same way judges can see a tax is a fee, except when a fee is a tax.

Somebody's vying for a spot on the supreme court...

Ken B said...

Deaths per thousand are about 40% of yours or less John Henry. Not that that is really the right metric for shit giving.

GingerBeer said...

I wasn't aware that judges accepted attorney's statements at face value.

Readering said...

After day 1 it will be interesting to see if Trump hires this guy.

rhhardin said...

This free film looks grim

A young physics student must find a way to reverse a deadly quantum time anomaly and solve the murder of her boyfriend while battling short-term memory loss and time slips caused by the event.

Not unrelated to the cat filter problem.

Unknown said...

Thanks Anne!

What a delightful video!

Bob Boyd said...

Cat tells judge, "I'm not a fucking lawyer!"

Yancey Ward said...

Ken is just full of shit, John Henry, and he knows it, too. The "Denialists" were the people in charge of exactly jack shit- it was the chicken littles with the flaming combs who were in charge pretty much everywhere in the world. If anyone is to blame for the deaths, it is them. Notice how Ken didn't bother to tell us what he would have done that would have made any difference at all, and the reason is pretty fucking simple- the governments pretty much in every country of the world followed all of his recommendations from last Spring, and none of it made any fucking difference at all.

Rory said...

It should be a dolphin that says, "I'm not a tuna."

Lurker21 said...

There already is Joe Biden filter.

If you apply the cat filter to Biden and the Biden filter to a cat do you end up with the same picture?

You can also apply the old person filter to Joe Biden -- if you dare.

There is also a "Trump filter" but it removes all references to Trump on any page you go to.

Rusty said...

You have to give credit to those other two lawyers for keeping it together. You know they were enjoying it. Yep. Funny as hell.

stlcdr said...

'bout time cats were put on trial.

stlcdr said...

Luckily, no one cares about Canada, except the parts that don't have the Canadians. Do they not have cats - or a sense of humor - in Canada?

Sam L. said...

Ja, I am most amusssssssed!

Readering said...

15 minutes of fame can lead to infamy. Google cat lawyer reason magazine.

Paul Mac said...

The Zoom Cat lawyer is also kind of a jerk it appears.
