Former President Donald Trump was roasted by President Joe Biden's campaign after claiming that his legal battles have now made him an "expert at law."

Speaking during a Fox News town hall hosted by Laura Ingraham, Trump echoed his baseless claim that Biden is orchestrating the 91 criminal charges he is currently confronting.

He also attributed the legal challenges he is encountering to his decision to run for office:

“I’ve become an expert at law.”
“If I didn’t run, I wouldn’t have any of these lawsuits, you know that, none of them."

Biden's campaign swiftly shared the footage on X, formerly Twitter, with the following shady caption:

"Trump says his 91 felony indictments make him an ‘expert at law."

Critics questioned Trump's self-proclaimed legal expertise, with many suggesting that his legal prowess might be more of a consequence of his legal entanglements rather than a demonstration of genuine expertise.

Trump's words exposed him to significant mockery as a result.

During the same interview, the so-called "expert at law" claimed the 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution's prohibition on "excessive fines" makes the fine levied in his New York fraud trial unconstitutional.

Last week, Judge Arthur Engoron imposed a financial penalty of $354.8 million on Trump, along with an additional sum of around $100 million in pre-judgment interest. The ruling came as a consequence of the judge's determination that Trump had artificially inflated his net worth with the intention of securing more favorable loan terms.

Trump proceeded to pull a copy of the 8th Amendment out of his pocket before reading the section that states “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted."
