Donald Trumps lawyer threatens to sue CNN, for biased news.

man this is hilarious

Quote:
The president says the cable news outlet is violating the Lanham Act.
Quote:
We also expect substantial additional information about CNN’s wrongful practices to become known in the coming days and weeks. Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called 'mainstream' news, as the current situation."

The letter adds, "Accordingly, my clients intend to file legal action against you, to seek compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs, and all other available legal and equitable remedies, to the maximum extent permitted by law."
it is 4 pages of hilarious threats

I'm guessing Trump might not like the Discovery phase of the trial.

That's why he's never actually gone through on any of this threats to sue, he's just trying to bully the press again

Lanham Act? Isn't that about trademarks? If this is a big problem, shouldn't the FCC be involved and review CNN's license? Talk about missing the mark? Trump only hires the best people.

They've stood up to Trump on foreign policy issues a number of times over the past few years, but that hasn't translated into anything resembling a backbone in general, so don't count on it. Trump's still wildly popular with rank and file Republican voters, and that's what motivates Republican reps.

I have noticed on free republic which is a safe space for utter right wing wack doodles were memes of guns and bibles lying on old glory are very popular, that recently the number of posts has gone down massively, threads have gone down from 2 or 3 pages to 4 or 5 posts, I suspect even the rank and file are a little disquieted

AOC and Michael Moore officially endorsing Bernie tomorrow. Will that provide a boost?

If Bernie gets the nomination the Dems will be able to test the old adage that they could run a dead guy against Trump and win?

Ha, I've been off-and-on mildly trolling FR since ... god.. 2000? Maybe even earlier, I think I found it in high school which would be the late 90s.

I've very much noticed the same thing, though that place has gone through so many purity purges over the years. I remember back in 08 when Giuliani was running for the Republican nomination they were booting people who supported him.

I mentioned this in the primary thread, but I tend to think no, or at most a small bump, because these are people who are already solidly in Bernie's camp. Neither of them really bring new voters to Bernie. They certainly don't bring in anyone from the moderate wing of the party, which is what Sanders and Warren need to do to win. Bernie's generally behind the other two front-runners in terms of second-place votes, or even voters considering him. He needs to expand his audience. A high profile, moderate Democrat endorsing Bernie would be a bigger deal.

Tide in, tide out. Sunrise, sunset. Trump contracts, Trump withholds payment.

This is an incredible interview I saw on CNN last night.

The stupidity, denial, lies, conspiracies, just mind blowing

These hardcore Trump minions are completely off the deep end. Reality and facts just don't seem to enter into the equation for them. Makes you wonder how they can look their children in the eyes every day and not feel unbelievable shame.

I wonder if the GOP recognizes how dumb they look by supporting this president and how ass backwards their policies are. They have become an absolute laughing stock to the rest of the US and the world. They are an absolute national embarrassment. It's like a trainwreck that you can't take your eyes off of.

This had nothing to do with Trump not withholding payment.

Lol, WTF? I had to double check to make sure this wasn't something from the Onion. But nope, it's real.

That's kind of normal presidential stuff unless I'm missing something. I actually doubt whether, if questioned, Trump would know anything about this. If the lol is for the abject irony of the thing, yeah, it's a frickin doozy.
