That he has filed another lawsuit against yet another entity for allegedly having done him wrong is completely unsurprising. I mean, what took him so long? This is an excerpt from the silly suit filed in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida:
CNN has sought to use its massive influence— purportedly as a “trusted” news source—to defame the Plaintiff in the minds of its viewers and readers for the purpose of defeating him politically, culminating in CNN claiming credit for “[getting] Trump out” in the 2020 presidential election. CNN’s campaign of dissuasion in the form of libel and slander against the Plaintiff has only escalated in recent months as CNN fears the Plaintiff will run for president in 2024. As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the Left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of “racist,” “Russian lackey,” “insurrectionist,” and ultimately “Hitler.”
Obviously, the First Amendment has no meaning or relevance to Donald Trump.
But of course the grifter is gonna grift:
Less than 24 hours after filing suit against CNN, former President Donald Trump is asking his supporters to donate to his cause.
“I am SUING the Corrupt News Network (CNN) for DEFAMING and SLANDERING my name,” the potential 2024 presidential candidate said in a fund raising email Tuesday that encouraged supporters to contribute $5 or more. “Remember, when they come after ME, they are really coming after YOU.”
He does this because it works.
