The answer to that is simple; you don’t know what you’re doing and you don’t know the rules of evidence or what objections to make. The prosecutor will be able to enter items and testimony into evidence that normally shouldn’t be entered, but because you don’t know how to object, or even that you’re supposed to, the court has to let it in. Sometimes a judge will step in, but they’re not required to. It’s your job to look out for your interests, not the court’s or the prosecutor’s.
If you’re in court during a trial, you don’t know what evidence is allowed and what isn’t, you can’t prepare your evidence properly, you don’t know the right questions to ask, and all of this will throw you off, and that could sabotage your case.
