I was just wondering if it is normal in the judiciary system here in our country for a trial court judge to show their anger and to coach a plaintiff's lawyer on what to do in order for them to present additional evidence against the defendants?

Will there be fair trial in this way?

haha, a priori consult your lawyer, you might have misunderstood what happened inside the courtroom,

at most, definitely not, that will manifest that the judge is something, have the Judge inhibit himself from hearing the case if his actions doesn't sit well with you

however, there are times when there is a need to cut off a lawyer for some clarificatory questioning, and that is allowed under the rules.

remember the case of javier vs comelec, as part of due process, a litigant is entitled no the 'cold neutrality of an impartial judge'.
