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.

  1. What are his lawyers doing? sitting on their thumbs? Frivolous lawsuits, and you don’t even need that cursory glance at the one Diapers filed to know it is exactly that, bounce back onto the filer and not in a pleasant way. Furthermore, the lawyer actually filing this frivolous lawsuit risks their license. WTF is going on with these attorneys? I get it, he never could get any A-list attorneys given his track record of paying his bills as well as his numerous bankruptcies, but even D-listers ought to know better.

    • The courts do not like frivolous lawsuits, that’s an absolute. As to Trump’s lawyers, I guess they all figure they’ll get their money, their moment in the sun and then get out. What else could any of them be thinking?

      • Calling this “they’ll get their money” indicates they are not thinking at all. Whatever, or if, they got up front is all they’re getting.

      • Sorry Ursula, but it IS *state* court.

        From the link and the filing:

        The State of Florida has TWENTY circuits (per the State Courts website ) and, the Twelfth Circuit covers DeSoto, Manatee and Sarasota Counties. As the site describes under the “Jurisdiction” topic:

        Circuit courts have general trial jurisdiction over matters not assigned by statute to the county courts and also hear appeals, if authorized by the Florida Statutes, of decisions in certain administrative, noncriminal infraction, and other types of cases. Thus, circuit courts are simultaneously the highest trial courts and the lowest appellate courts in Florida’s judicial system.

        The trial jurisdiction of circuit courts includes, among other matters, original jurisdiction over civil disputes involving more than $30,000; controversies involving the estates of decedents, minors, and persons adjudicated as incapacitated; cases relating to juveniles; criminal prosecutions for all felonies; tax disputes; actions to determine the title and boundaries of real property; suits for declaratory judgments that is, to determine the legal rights or responsibilities of parties under the terms of written instruments, laws, or regulations before a dispute arises and leads to litigation; and requests for injunctions to prevent persons or entities from acting in a manner that is asserted to be unlawful.

        Lastly, circuit courts are also granted the power to issue the extraordinary writs of certiorari, prohibition, mandamus, quo warranto, and habeas corpus, and all other writs necessary to the complete exercise of their jurisdiction.

        • What you say makes sense but I’m wondering how they drag WaPo into a state court? Long arm statute, I guess? In any event, the least of the problems with this lawsuit is its venue, unless I miss my guess.

  2. Damn. A blizzard of orange snowflakes just hit Washington D.C. Word on the street is Grumpy has been holed up in faux reality watching SpongeBob SquarePants, and he decided to ‘get on the deck and flop like a fish’. Arrrgggg!!!!

  3. Sometimes, when the news is really depressing, and all you want is a good chuckle, Trump files a lawsuit and saves the day.
