Democrats have been dreaming of mugshots ever since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy in 2015. Jailhouse pictures of the former president and his allies.
The left is salivating at the prospect of Donald Trump, the frontrunner in the GOP race, surrendering himself to Fulton County Georgia Jail on Thursday night.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has brought charges against 19 defendants for alleged subversion of elections.
Here is a collection of photos so far.

The parade of mugshots may be funny to some but it shouldn’t overshadow what is happening. Democrats are putting Trump and his cronies in jail, even though Trump is the main rival of Joe Biden, the current president.
The country has never experienced anything like this before. Its ramifications are likely to last for many years.
Democrats are, of course enthusing about the situation, and making fun of Trump and other defendants. They don’t seem to understand that the precedent being set can be used against them in the future.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, posted a photo of Rudy smiling on camera on her Instagram account.
Former Minnesota Senator Al Franken spoke out:
I wonder who he’s angry at? https://t.co/IBFXKkFh4g

Here is John Cooper, an ex-elected official from Long Island who helped to found a super PAC against Trump:
BREAKING: It’s official. The Fulton County jail has released Rudy Giuliani’s MUGSHOT!
As the former mayor of New York City, Giuliani is a disgrace to both the state and the entire country.
Republicans don’t want us to share this picture. Should we blast it everywhere? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/lJtwOETf5f

Some people who pose in front of the camera are not bothered by it. Jenna Ellis is an attorney who uses her mugshot as her X profile photo:

Lara Trump, the wife of former President George W. Bush’s son Eric Trump, appeared on NewsMax to claim that a mugshot was unnecessary and would only increase his support.
It is absurd to believe that Donald Trump who is one of, if not, the most well-known person in the entire world would need one.
We know that the purpose of this advertisement is to embarrass him.
It’s going to backfire, like everything else.
You’ll see it on posters in dorms and other places. It will be on tee shirts. This is going to be the flag that people will fly because they love their country and support Donald Trump.
