Trump to Media: You're Sued!

Updated on March 1, 2016

GOP Front-runner and Constitution Shredder

Donald Trump’s latest threat to make it easier to sue media outlets that criticize the president (only if HE is the president) would be laughable, if it wasn’t totalitarian.

And downright terrifying. Not to mention unconstitutional: First Amendment (and most of the rest of the document, save the Second Amendment) be damned!

No shock that this ego-mutated blusterer who demands banning persons of a certain faith from entering the country (until we figure out what to do) now rattles his increasingly longer and sharper saber at the media, pulling from the same playbook of bullying and critical stifling as the Third Reich and the Soviet Union.

The canary-haired, pink grapefruit face is notorious for spewing mostly monosyllabic diatribes about every race, religion, gender,media source, opponent, foreign county, foreign leader, and on and on and on that did or said something he didn’t like or hurt his tender feelings. Then he plans to kill them, punch them, sue them, ban them, or just take his damn ball and go home.

It’s another example of his finger pointing and castigating an unpopular group, be it Mexicans, Muslims, and now, the media. That works his coalition of the simple-minded with less cognitive ability than a box of rocks into an apoplectic frenzy.

Of course, these are the individuals who shake their fists for Trump and extol his vicious hatred for whomever he is blasting, yet they see no hypocrisy in all of this. Trump even revels in the lack of education of many of his supporters. I love the poorly educated. They’re great people.

Anyone who supports him is great. Anyone who doesn't, and who sees this budding emperor's disgusting nakedness, best look out!

Of course, the great people behind Trump are too reason-impaired to recognize that much of what he wants and they thunderously cheer, they have, in the past, stridently opposed.

Take lawsuits. Republicans believe courts have too much power and frivolous lawsuits are out of control. Now, it’s okay when Trump crows about suing a newspaper or network that has called out the pastel czar on his chronic affliction of foot-in-mouth syndrome.

Ironically, the one person who could have benefited most from lawsuits against anyone who speaks out against the president is Barack Obama. If Trump’s constitutional abrogation were retroactive, Obama could have sued Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and every other right wing media that branded him a socialist dictator. If the courts agreed (highly unlikely) the fair and balanced conservative media would be dead (the perpetrators jailed or executed) and Obama, richer than Trump, would decree himself president for life.

Apparently, a dictator is no longer a leader who imposes his ironclad individual will on the people and suspends their most basic rights. No, now it’s a leader whose policies collide with those of counter ideologies, or those who are blatantly racist. So based on that rationale, Obama is a dictator and Trump a champion of the people.

What people?

The addle-brained of America. But remember: They’re great people. I totally love them.

      Trump has done an end-around on the Republicans. Because he's not beholden to donors or special interests (beyond himself), he can say and do what he wants. That attracts many but repulses an equal amount.

      If he is the nominee, it will be intriguing to see how he re-invents himself for the general election. Many of his die-hard supporters may not be happy with what they see.

      OHHHH most def!! Reap what you sow. The way they stopped Obama is the way they're trying to stop Trump. However, I don't know if the rw media is anti Trump like they are anti Democrat.

      All the blogs, TV and radio that slam Obama and Hillary....don't know if they slam Trump, or if they support him. Because that is key.

      Trump is a byproduct of the attitudes and actions of the Republican right, which may not be getting its comeuppance for seven years of venomous anti-Obamaism.

      Yes, he is quite terrifying. Bring back torture, and worse? Not on your life. And you're right, if anybody has been derided by the media, it's Obama. Constant, since 2007. Hussein Hussein Hussein!!! The Right Wing has made this country sour. Their agenda is hateful, and their people the most self-serving, selfish bunch of slobs the world has ever seen. Hey--at least I didn't accuse them of hating America: Something they do to others on a regular basis, our own president included.

      Boooo!
