The New York attorney general's lawsuit against the former president alleges "astounding" financial fraud.

Donald Trump’s legal predicaments just got verse. (Watch the video below.)

New York Attorney General Letitia James, who’s suing Trump and his three adult children, and “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah roasted the former president with poetry on Wednesday.

First, James announced the lawsuit, which accuses Trump of “astounding” fraud in vastly inflating the worth of his assets to cheat lenders and tax authorities. The civil suit aims to bar the family from conducting business in New York and asks for $250 million in restitution.

“Claiming you have money that you do not have does not amount to the art of the deal; it’s the art of the steal,” James said, a reference to Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal.”

Noah couldn’t resist dropping a rhyme of his own.

Donald Trump is in trouble now,” the comedian said. “Because when a prosecutor uses a rhyme, you’re about to do time!”

Noah noted that if half of what James alleges is true, “Trump is an even bigger con man than we all thought.”
