President Donald Trump has hit out at “very weak” libel laws in the US as he branded an explosive new book detailing the inner workings of the White House as “fiction”.

Suggesting he would like to see tougher laws on speech, Mr Trump said that if libel laws “were strong… you wouldn’t have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes into your head” – referring to Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Yeah, you can say anything you want…. like  “he’s a Kenyan Musslim.” Or he started ISIS. This is like the pot calling the kettle orange.

  1. Interesting. If you sue someone for libel, I don’t think you can avoid being cross-examined. I pity his lawyers*. It would make great TV.

    The big picture? Institutions of the US are being attacked and many people don’t seem to care.

    *Not really.

  2. Contrary to popular belief, the resistance is still strong.
