I’m glad that this communique from CNN bears the blue check mark, which means it’s a verified Twitter account and not parody — because read the name of the attorney who signed this letter.

David C. Vigilante? D.C. Vigilante? You see that too, right? Because there are times since the election of Donald Trump, and this is one of them, that I begin to question whether I’m dreaming all of this. Maybe we all are, who knows? Maybe this is an experiment in mass hypnosis.

In all events, now the ball is back in Trump’s court and we’ll see where it goes from here. But if I had to hazard a guess, I would say that Trump not only hasn’t got a leg to stand on, all he’s doing is running up legal bills, along with pollster bills. But then Trump doesn’t pay his bills, so I guess it’s all moot.

One thing to consider though: Trump might sue each and every one of us for voting for Joe Biden. This is just the warm up. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

This is way too absurd, Ursula, to be anything BUT real. Look at some of the more ridiculous nooks in history and you’ll see this is perfectly in line with one of those times. A longtime bodyguard to Mickey Cohen, one Johnny Stompanato by name, comes to mind.

I saw this. The lawyer’s name made me smile. It was a fun litter to write I think.

Its 100% real. David C. Vigilante is the Executive Vice President and General Counsel for CNN and Warner Media News and Sports.

I am noticing people not being scared of Trump lately. He and Barr are going down.

We’re still scared of what he can do to the country, though.

Can’t worry about that, P J. What he’s able to do will happen whether we’re worried or not. Energy is better used elsewhere.

I lost my fear of that asshole sometime last year. It’s what happens when you lock onto someone’s behavior patterns.

Sadly though, other than Romney, none within the Republican Party…

I have never understood why anyone fears him. All one has to do is walk away. Possibly after putting him in his place.

It took me a little while to figure that out, Sucz, but that has indeed been the pattern.

I still miss Jon Stewart’s version of The Daily Show. I recall one episode where he couldn’t resist sophomoric, downright juvenile mocking of a guy with an unfortunate name, which the guy himself apparently insisted on making worse. If memory serves the Town Hall that made this guy famous (sort of) was in New York but it might have been another state in the northeast. The TH was being conducted by a Democrat but unlike GOP types our folks don’t screen out non-Democrats and this particular self-identified (and checking proved he really was a lifelong member) Republican who had a… Read more »

I’d have pronounced it “Sweet” and made it more interesting for people trying to make jokes.

The man who challenged the University of Texas Law School separate but equal policy in the late 1940’s was Heman Sweatt. According to the court case Sweatt vs. Painter ruling, The UT law school either needed to provide him an equal law school (within 6 months) or he would have to be admitted to the UT law school. Although he was eventually admitted to the UT law school, the stress of having to undergo all the court cases impacted his physical and mental health. He never finished his law degree. He did pave the way for African Americans to attend… Read more »

Also as for unfortunate names, one of the greatest all time benefactors to the University of Texas was Ima Hogg. She did not have a sister named Ura. She also created a foundation which exists in her name today.

I hope it isn’t just me that can’t locate the text of the letter to CNN. Every article just shows the response and says it had all kinds of errors in it, etc. Anyone have a link?
