It was moseying along to be a nice, quiet spring, early summer weekend. Maybe Donald Trump got bored with all the peace and quiet because he filed a lawsuit last night in Florida against the Washington Post, claiming that they defamed him, Truth Social, and lordy lordy, Devin Nunes. And no, we don’t know if there are any cows involved in this lawsuit.

Hit the blue link and read the entire complaint. Just at a cursory glance, Trump is accusing the Washington Post of a “hit piece” regarding securities fraud. I don’t think he’s going to get too far with this at all. The securities irregularities of Trump Media & Technology Group and Truth Social have been documented since the inception.
Trump also references a Guardian article referencing money laundering allegations, but he’s not suing the Guardian — at least not yet.
Trump also accuses the Washington Post of “click bait headlines,” which I find amusing. And he’s upset, apparently, that somebody refers to Devin Nunes as a “corrupt mfer.”
Just what we need, some entertaining reading for our Sunday afternoon.
Trump hasn’t exactly been batting a thousand with his lawsuits lately and at first glance, this doesn’t look like the lawsuit that will turn that tide.
