“The Trump campaign claimed in the suit that the statement is “false and defamatory” because the Mueller report itself supposedly contracts it.”

In the new lawsuit … the campaign accuses the Post of acting “with reckless disregard for the truth” …

As just an ordinary citizen of the USA, do I have standing to sue Chiselin’ Trump for the exact same charge?

Asking for a friend.

Lots of them.

If you claim Trump is an worthless POS he cannot claim false and defamatory statements.

OT, but…

Soon Trump will just order the FDA to alter the rules allowing for release of vaccines for coronavirus. In 2 weeks unsuspecting citizens will get bleach/Purell injections.

Another feather in Greg Sargent’s cap!

Such a good writer, and it’s a pity there aren’t more in the MSM who state things so clearly, without silly euphemisms like “mercurial” and “unconventional.”

Few people want to go there, to openly say Trump is actually a man of limited intelligence. Mainstream media certainly won’t. The dichotomy of him having a certain elevated wealth, and achieving the Presidency, makes it difficult for people to comprehend or accept he’s just plain stupid. But the record is rife with examples of him saying things which if said by a friend would have you thinking “Damn, Bob, you’re a fricking idiot. Just plain stupid. Sheesh!”

He famously believes humans are born with a finite amount of energy, and exercise and exertion drain away at it, leaving less and less available to tap as the years roll by. How damned dumb does a person have to be to even think that way? And he has thoughts like this about dozens and dozens of subjects.
