On Tuesday, a well-known Times Square artist, the Naked Cowboy, sang pro-Trump songs in front of the courtroom where former President Donald Trump was arraigned.
While strumming the guitar, the Naked Cowboy performed songs about Trump’s views on taxes, constructing a border wall, and backing law enforcement.
He also questioned New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s reputation on crime, stating he cuts criminal charges and does not request bail for felony offenders.

Bragg is the prosecuting attorney who filed accusations against Trump. He is accused of dismissing felony charges, lowering felonies to misdemeanors, and reducing his criminal convictions.
Bragg also has ties to the billionaire George Soros, who contributed $1 million to the Color of Change PAC, which backed Bragg’s 2021 campaign. Soros’s family also made direct contributions to Bragg.
Trump ceded to authorities at the Manhattan Courthouse around 1:30 p.m. prior to his arraignment. He pled not guilty to 34 charges of first-degree falsifying company documents. Upon entering the courthouse, he waved and fist-pumped his fans.

Trump’s Legal Troubles

Trump has denounced any misconduct and pledged to defend himself against the claims.
The Naked Cowboy’s presence in front of the courthouse on the day of Trump’s arraignment was one of several protests and rallies. Trump proponents and detractors gathered in front of the courtroom to express their thoughts.
