Facebook posts and Trump's actions spark heated debate on trial's second day.

Trump's hush money trial's first seven jurors were chosen Tuesday amid a fight over prospective jurors' past Facebook remarks and calls to “lock him up” and the judge's caution that the former president should not intimidate the panelists who will decide his fate.

There will be no juror intimidation in this courtroom. I want to clarify," New York state Judge Juan Merchan told Trump and his lawyer Todd Blanche outside the juror's presence. Merchan informed Blanche his client was "audibly" talking to the juror "12 feet away from your client."

Merchan told Blanche to talk to Trump about his "muttering" and "gesturing" toward the juror, stating he didn't know what Trump was saying. Blanche then whispered to Trump.

The event shows Trump's tendency to act out in court and his lawyers' difficulty controlling him. He shouted in the E. Jean Carroll slander trial and stormed out of his civil fraud trial, two voluntary trials. The criminal trial might last eight weeks and requires his presence.

Seven jurors were chosen on the second day of jury selection, causing the drama. Legal professionals, salespeople, oncology nurses, IT consultants, teachers, and software engineers made up the jury, whose names were not revealed in court. The seven were sworn in and ordered to court Monday.

Blanche told the judge, “There’s a number of the jurors that we have social media posts for that are very much contrary” to what they stated when asked if they were impartial, and he wanted them struck for cause.

The footage shows the woman saying, "I have to get in the car and spread honking cheers." 96th Street has a dancing party.”

Trump's lawyers said the video referenced an anti-Trump rally. She denied attending any rally or campaign activities during her initial interview. She said it was a "celebratory moment" in the city and that she could be neutral when questioned individually.
