Trump is getting tired of all these mean and nasty negative articles written about him, and he wants to do something about it. Specifically, he wants to expand libel laws so that he can sue media outlets that write, as he calls it, “purposely negative” and “horrible” articles about him.
Freedom of speech? Who needs that, Trump’s feelings are hurt, and those are more important.
Poorly Educated Politician
Trump sets himself up for failure. From his self-congratulating speech in Nevada when he praised his “poorly-educated” audience to his recent attempted take down of Rubio that led to the Dictionary stepping in to shut him up, Trump is his own punchline.
Realizing that, though, requires a modicum of self-awareness that neither Trump nor his audience possess.
So instead of blaming himself for being a moron, Trump blames the media for reporting on him being a moron. Which is why on Friday he vowed to “open up” libel laws so he could target media outlets that skewer him for the stupid stuff he says:
I’m gonna open up our libel laws, so when they write purposely negative and horrible, false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.
Trump could make “lots of money” if he were smart with his investments instead of relying on bankruptcy. He could’ve had more money if he didn’t lose it all on a casino (how do you lose money on a casino? That takes talent). But what do I know, I don’t support the man for his business acumen. I’m not stupid; I don’t support the man at all.
We’re going to open up those libels law. So that when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money.
The only total disgrace here is Donald Trump.
My suggestion for Trump: If you don’t like being called out for being an idiot, stop being an idiot. Of course, if he did that, he’d probably lose his appeal to that “poorly-educated” audience, wouldn’t he?
