Stormy Daniels’ Defamation Lawsuit Against President Trump Hits a Snag in Court

Published

Porn star Stormy Daniels is not having a very good day after finding out that her little defamation suit against President Trump has just hit a major snag in court.

How major you ask?

Try having the whole case tossed out of court. That kind of major.

Daniels and her celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti — who has kept himself in the news with his bombastic denunciations of Trump, teasing of a 2020 presidential run, and, now, his claims that he has more accusations to drop about Brett Kavanaugh — have sued Trump for defamation over his tweet describing her sketch of a man who allegedly tried to intimidate her into silence on behalf of Trump as a “total con job.”

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” Trump tweeted in April:

But as AP reports, Judge S. James Otero suggested in U.S. District Court on Monday that interpreting that tweet as defamatory is a slippery slope legally. Rather than defamatory, the tweet, said Otero, reads more like “rhetorical hyperbole” expressing an opinion, which is protected under the First Amendment.

“To allow the complaint to go forward and to have one consider this to be defamatory in the context it was made would have a chilling effect,” Otero said.

The judge will officially rule later, but legal sources believe that he has likely already written a tentative ruling that he will soon finalize.

Avenatti took the opportunity of the hearing to once again trash Trump. “I witnessed something here today that I never thought I’d witness,” Avenatti said outside the courthouse Monday. “That is: Donald Trump having a lawyer stand up in a federal court and espouse on his behalf the virtues and how important the First Amendment is in America. This is the same Donald Trump that has crapped all over the First Amendment and the news media for years.”

Daniels and her attention starved attorney have made it clear that staying in the spotlight is really their main objective, which makes this verdict, if true, all the more sweet to the taste.

These people so hate President Trump they are willing to stoop to any low to destroy him. Not only that, but folks like Avenatti just want to find some way to go down in history. What better way than to play a part in getting the president impeached?

However, it doesn’t look like the strategy is going as planned. Too bad, isn’t it?

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
