Over the weekend in Ohio, former President Donald Trump escalated his attacks on District Attorney Fani Willis, making a pointed joke about the spelling and pronunciation of her name at a rally. “It’s spelled Fani, like your (expletive),” he remarked.

Willis, speaking at an event for International Women’s Day earlier in the month, had a straightforward label for those who intentionally mispronounce her name: “idiots.”

At a recent rally in Georgia, U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, took a firm stance against Donald Trump as the political battle heats up for the 2024 elections. Warnock, who was the sole Democrat to win statewide office in Georgia during the 2022 elections, criticized Trump on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” with Rev. Al Sharpton. He responded to Trump’s warning of a “bloodbath” if he loses the upcoming election by saying, “Donald Trump has shown us who he is time and time again, and we ought to take him seriously.”

Warnock also discussed the Georgia election interference case against Trump, highlighting Trump’s attacks on Fani Willis, a Black woman. “But we’re watching our judicial process play out. And right here in Georgia. I’m afraid that there are some political actors who have tried to put their hand on the scale. I’m not going to pile on,” he stated.
