Some moms get flowers for Mothers Day; Paige Singh got to see Donald Trump on trial.


The Bay Area mom, in town from California to accompany her husband on business, snagged a spot on Tuesday for what has quickly become one of the hottest tickets in New York City, thanks to her husband and the professional line-stander he hired as a Mothers Day gift to hold a spot for her in the queue outside the courthouse.


“My husband? He thinks it’s crazy,” she said. And her kids “just laugh.”


But for Singh, the hundreds of dollars she sent via Zelle to a stranger holding her place outside the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse was well worth the chance to see the former president of the United States on trial.
