‘We Are In Trouble’: Country Star Says We Are In ‘Scary Times’ Following Trump Guilty Verdict

 Country star Jason Aldean said we are living in “scary times” following news that a New York jury found former President Donald Trump guilty.

In a post on Thursday on Instagram, the 47-year-old country singer posted an image of an inverted U.S flag [a symbol of dire distress] on his social media after a jury returned a guilty verdict on all 34 counts against Trump in the hush-money trial.

Scary times in our country right now, man,” Aldean’s post read. “When a former POTUS gets treated like this by our justice system, what does that mean for the rest of us???”

“If there was ever a time to speak up, IT’S NOW!” he added. “Make no mistake…. We are in trouble.”

Aldean’s post followed similar comments from other celebrities like Megyn Kelly, Piers Morgan, and more warning about the dangers of the guilty verdict.

Megyn Kelly wrote on X, “Guilty on all counts. The country is disgraced. Alvin Bragg should be disbarred. They will rue the day they unleashed this lawfare to corrupt a presidential election.”

Talk show host Piers Morgan wrote, “This is a sad, shameful and ridiculous day for America. To drag a former President, who is running for President again, through criminal courts over something so trivial feels a massive overreach & an incredibly divisive and obviously politically partisan action.”


The guilty verdict in Trump’s New York trial marks the first time a former U.S. president has been convicted of a crime, as previously reported.

At the heart of the case brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg were 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to conceal damaging information around the 2016 election as part of a “catch-and-kill” scheme.

Prosecutors accused Trump of improperly masking reimbursements to repay his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence on an alleged extramarital affair by classifying them as legal expenses.

Trump has denied that the affair with Stormy Daniels ever happened and pleaded not guilty to the charges. His lawyers argued there was no intent to defraud or influence the 2016 election.
