Donald the Blowhard Loves SLAPP Suites

Donald Trump on Saturday pledged postelection lawsuits against every woman who has accused him of sexual assault or other inappropriate behavior, and he charged Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic Party with orchestrating the allegations.

"Every one of these liars will be sued once the election is over," Trump said, adding, "I look so forward to doing that."
And here is hoping that, when he does that, he gets his ass sanctioned by the courts. Trump has said, in various interviews in the past, that he did much of what he is accused of doing.

Litigating this shit also keeps the accusations alive for years. But he doesn't think like that. Trump is a short-fingered bully, this threat is just more evidence of that. He has a very big mouth and a very thin skin.

Next month, when he stands a very good chance of losing to the most electorally vulnerable Democratic candidate since Alton Parker, he likely may win the title of the Biggest Loser of the 21st Century. Which may drive him mad.

Ooooh, I never knew about Alton Parker! (That is, I missed the contestant in that election.)

Careful; mad men with money can do damage.

Unfortunately, many of the women he threatens to sue will not have the deep pockets needed to mount a defense against the Trump blitzkrieg. One hopes that some deep-pocketed organization or individual will step forward to help. But don't bet on it.

All that is needed for the triumph of Evil is for Evil to have better financial resources.

Yours very crankily,

Once again, Streisand Effect on line one, Streisand Effect is holding on line one, please pickup....

Really, it doesn't matter the amount of money he (allegedly) has. The publicity of defeating the guy in court will get some very good folks raising their hand to volunteer to help the women Trump is saying he'll sue. Now tell me, with Trump's history of not even paying his lawyers, is he really going to be able to get the best that money can buy, or will it be...of lesser quality. I hope his lawyer(s) get their payment up front, in cash, since I doubt he'd give them a dime if he loses. Just sayin'.

It's time to retire the idea that Hillary Clinton was electorally vulnerable. Every time a Republican goes up against her in a public forum, he leaves on a stretcher. Remember what M told Bond? "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence..."

Trump might have self-destructed, but he seemed to make his worst blunders in the days right after the debates. The Benghazi committees looked ridiculous when they confronted her on TV. Ditto the people who tried to run against her for Senate, whose names I can't even remember.

I'd like to think trump can't last four seconds under oath without committing slam-dunk perjury... but I don't think that's an actual crime for politicians and the rich.
