Trump laments our feeble libel laws

Trump did a press conference at Camp David today. Wolff’s book came up a time or two.

During the press conference, Trump called the book a “work of fiction” and said it was a “disgrace” that Wolff could “do something like this.”

“Libel laws are very weak in this country,” Trump said. “If they were stronger, hopefully, you would not have something like that happen.”

But if libel laws were stronger, think of all the people who could sue Trump. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Elizabeth Warner, Kim Jong Un, Chuck Schumer, Steve Bannon, Rosie O’Donnell, Jeff Sessions, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Native Americans, Mexicans, Mexico, Muslims, atheists, Chicago, New York, women – it would never end and it would bankrupt him.

He added that Wolff did not know him at all and did not interview him, though he then said Wolff interviewed him once “a long time ago” for a magazine story.

“I guess ‘Sloppy Steve’ [Bannon] brought him into the White House a lot,” Trump said. “That’s why ‘Sloppy Steve’ is looking for a job.”

Said Dumbshit Don.

Asked during the press conference why he tweeted about his mental stability, Trump replied, “Only because I went to the best colleges, or college. I went to a — I had a situation where I was a very excellent student, came out and made billions and billions of dollars.”

No, he was never a very excellent student. Also, he nearly went bankrupt in the 90s.

Reporters also touched on a recent New York Times report that said Trump asked White House counsel Don McGahn to convince Attorney General not to recuse himself from the FBI’s Russia investigation last year…

Calling the Times story “way off,” Trump said, “Everything I’ve done is 100% proper. That’s what I do is I do things proper.”

Hmm gotta disagree with you there Dumbshit Don. That’s not what you do is. What you do is you do most things highly improper, and often downright illegal.

“Collusion now is dead,” he added. “Because everybody found out after a year of study there has been absolutely no collusion.”

No. Apparently his people have been telling him that in hopes of keeping him from dousing the White House in lighter fluid and setting it ablaze, but if so they’ve been lying to him.

Trump said Saturday that he and the White House have been “very open” in cooperating with Mueller’s team. “We could have done it two ways. We could have been very closed and it would have taken years. But you know, sort of, like, when you’ve done nothing wrong, let’s be open and get it over with, because honestly, it’s very, very bad for our country and it’s making us look foolish.”

He added that “this is a country that I don’t want looking foolish, and it’s not going to look foolish as long as I’m here. So we’ve been very open and we just want to get that over with.”

God, he is so out of touch with reality. He’s got it exactly backward. The country is going to look foolish as long as he’s here; it’s only if he leaves that we have a hope of eventually, after decades, looking not so foolish any more.
