Former White House lawyer Ty Cobb said Donald Trump looked like a “Batman villain” in his mugshot.
In the photo, Trump is seen scowling at the camera while wearing his customary red tie and a blue suit. It is the first time that a sitting or former United States president had his mugshot taken.
“This is the first time that a former president and his colleagues have been charged with a heinous crime like this, this is the first presidential former presidential mugshot, you know we’ve ever seen,” Cobb said Friday, according to The Hill. “And while he looks like a Batman villain in his mugshot, he’s still entitled to all the rights and privileges of a criminal defendant.”
Trump surrendered at the Fulton County Jail Thursday evening. He was charged last week with 13 counts related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
He was processed as inmate number P01135809, with his height listed as 6’3″, weight as 215 lbs, having “blond or strawberry hair” and blue eyes. Trump was released on $200,000 bond.
