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?

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
