Re: Trump on CNN

I don’t know how someone thinks giving a white supremacist rapist who tried to overthrow the government a free two hours on a mainstream news network is a good idea, but the dingleberries at CNN apparently managed it. They let Trump get on TV last night and rant about how much he hates that he got held nominally accountable for something (raping E. Jean Carroll), and how 2020 was rigged against him (it absolutely was not) for two hours while some nobody tried to “fact-check” him on the go. I didn’t watch, but all the reports claim this went about as well as you’d expect it to.

🍊 NPR: Trump continues lies about election and lashes out after N.Y. verdict in town hall – “In his first media appearance since being found liable for sexual abuse and defamation to the tune of $5 million, former President Donald Trump defensively lashed out once again, as he typically does when he disagrees with something or his back is against the wall politically.”

I’d prefer to completely ignore this happening, but these idgits in the news business basically gave Trump a presidency back in 2016 by promoting every stupid word he said, because they love ratings and money more than they love democracy or doing their jobs. It sure seems like they intend to try to do the exact same thing this time around, so please, for the love of little puppies with heart-shaped spots, please remember that this diet-Nazi freakbag wants us all either worshipping him unconditionally or dead, and he really doesn’t care which one it is.

The 2024 election is coming. I know we ain’t thrilled with Joe Biden. Please don’t re-elect this crazy orange turd.

⚖️ New York Times: E. Jean Carroll May Sue Trump a Third Time After ‘Vile’ Comments on CNN – “In an interview, her lawyer said that the former president’s mocking comments in a town hall broadcast could create fresh legal jeopardy.”

This might just be her lawyer shooting his mouth off, but it would be pretty fantastic if she sued Trump again. She’s got a previous defamation case pending against him, too.
