Fani Willis Slammed By Judge For Playing ‘The Race Card’

Fani Willis, the Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney, described in some media reporting as “embattled,” is prosecuting former  president Donald Trump and a dozen or so co-defendants. In a recent court ruling, Judge McAfee slammed Willis for delivering an ‘improper’ church speech that ‘played the race card.

In a speech delivered this past Friday at a women’s event in Atlanta, Willis “seemed to defy a judge’s recent warning to not play “the race card.” Willis unapologetically asserted “she’ll talk about race anyway.” As reported, “During her remarks at the South Fulton Women of the Shield Awards, Wills said that “it’s hard out here always having to prove yourself two and three times.” Willis did not identify what she was challenged to prove.

Willis added: “Recently, they tell me they don’t like me to talk about race. Well, I’m going to talk about it anyway.” Watch the latest video at

Reporting indicated that Wills’ comments seemed to be in reference to, or, perhaps, challenged, “the recent order by Judge Scott McAfee in which he said that her racially charged rhetoric of “playing the race card” was “legally improper.”

Background information discloses that “McAfee’s comments were in his decision that said Willis could stay on the 2020 election interference case against former President Donald Trump if she removed special counsel Nathan Wade, with whom she was accused of having had an “improper” affair.

McAfee’s order “separately took issue with a speech made by Willis at an Atlanta church in January of this year, when she claimed she and Wade were being scrutinized because of their race.”

While Willis later claimed not to be referring to the defendants in her accusations of racism, McAfee warned that such a distinction was not clear.

McAfee wrote unambiguously: “In these public and televised comments, the District Attorney complained that a Fulton County Commissioner ‘and so many others’ questioned her decision to hire SADA Wade. When referring to her detractors throughout the speech, she frequently utilized the plural ‘they.’ The State argues the speech was not aimed at any of the Defendants in this case. Maybe so. But maybe not. Therein lies the danger of public comment by a prosecuting attorney.”
