Former President Donald Trump's attorney Alina Habba got some major side-eye from social media users after video of her method for cutting celery while prepping a Passover meal circulated online.

The video was originally filmed at the home of Siggy Flicker, a cast member of Real Housewives of New Jersey and Habba's best friend. Flicker had posted the video on her Instagram account and also shared it to X, saying she was spending time with her "bestie" Habba to "make a brisket for my family."

Habba, who is not representing Trump in his ongoing hush money trial, was free to prepare the Passover meal, which included the brisket she made with her unique—and dangerous—approach to cutting celery. Habba can be seen sawing the vegetables with a dull knife on a cutting board hanging over the edge of the kitchen counter, which is an accident waiting to happen.

You can see the video below.

A cutting board should always be securely placed on a surface—and Habba clearly has poor knife technique.

To slice celery, it's recommended you cut the stalk crosswise into ½- to 1-inch pieces, depending on your recipe's requirements. For recipes where you want smaller pieces of celery, such as soups or stews, dicing is preferable.

To dice celery, you should first cut each stalk crosswise in half or thirds. Then, slice each section lengthwise into four narrow strips. Finally, cut these strips crosswise into diced pieces.

That's not at all what Habba was doing, as pointed out by liberal activist and MeidasTouch editor in chief Ron Filipkowski, who said she "gave a masterclass on how to saw celery."

Many people expressed their disapproval with Habba's cooking technique, making it clear that they were not impressed by her approach to the task.



Habba has typically made headlines for her often laughable justifications for Trump's actions.

Last week, she said Trump's love of reading was the reason he appeared to fall asleep during jury selection on day one of his hush money trial. After New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported that Trump "appeared to nod off a few times," Habba said any suggestion Trump fell asleep is "a remarkable story at best."

Last month, video circulated of Habba saying that Trump would have "no issues" securing a bond, words that came back to haunt her after Trump's team revealed he couldn't come up with a $454 million bond he owes New York Attorney General Letitia James after he was found liable in a civil fraud case. The bond was later reduced to $175 million.

Habba had earlier said that Trump was not afraid to testify at the fraud trial, a claim that fell apart as soon as Trump declared on Truth Social that he would not testify in "a fake case against me" that he branded an "election interference witch hunt."
