Judge Dismisses Trump’s Loopy Lawsuit Against Twitter for ‘Failure to Plausibly State a Claim’

Throughout his public life, Donald Trump has tried to exploit the judicial system for profit or as a means of intimidating his foes. And, for the most part, he has succeeded only in wasting the court’s time and humiliating himself.

Donald Trump, Constitution

On Friday a United States District Court judge dismissed Trump’s lawsuit against Twitter. He filed the suit last year alleging a series of pitifully lame complaints that had no legal basis.

The suit sought “to order an immediate halt to social media companies’ illegal, shameful censorship of the American people.” By which he means himself being held accountable for his unconscionable remarks that incited an insurrection. As reported by CBS News

“A judge dismissed a lawsuit former President Trump brought last year against Twitter and its then-CEO Jack Dorsey. The social media giant had sought to dismiss the suit, which Trump filed after Twitter banned him from its platform, for ‘failure to plausibly state a claim.’

“Trump, the American Conservative Union and five other people claimed Twitter violated their right to free speech under the First Amendment after it ‘censored’ their accounts. U.S. District Judge for Northern California James Donato rejected their argument because Twitter is a private company, and the free speech clause in the Constitution applies only to the government. The judge found no evidence that Twitter acted on behalf of government officials, as plaintiffs also alleged.”

After occupying the White House for four years, Trump still doesn’t have the even the simplest grasp of the Constitution. Which is why he expected the court to take seriously his ludicrous demand…

“‘…to an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well,’ Trump said at the time. ‘I am confident that we will achieve a historic victory for American freedom and at the same time freedom of speech.'”

So much for Trump’s confidence in the legal nonsense that he and his incompetent lawyers burdened the court with. This suit joins several others that he filed recently that were equally as preposterous. Such as…

These lawsuits are emblematic of the idiocy that permeates Trump’s misunderstanding of the law. But they will surely not be the last attempts by Trump to abuse the justice system and fleece his glassy-eyed flock for funds to fight these futile legal battles. Which, in the end, is all that this is really about, and all that he cares about.

  1. Yep.
    What’s that saying? “A fool & his money are soon parted.” (Isn’t that it? I think so.) So many Trumpian fools with waayyy too much money & nothing better to spend it on than big lies & more big lies. Having invested heavily in the shitshow ~ their $$$ &/or their souls ~ they have VIP seats for the show, caviar & the finest champagne. But, the show must end & the final curtain falls. The lights come up & they head for the exits.
    I’d like to invite them to stop by the “KARMA CAFE” on their way home. As the sign says… “No menus here. You get what you deserve!”

    • Sorry…I read it & realize that being so ill may be makin’ me a little…um…Bitchy! {more than usual}

  2. This particular News Corpse publication reminds me of the video of the conversation between Ted Cruz and Twitter CEO at the time, Jack Dorsey. Dorsey kept his voice low and even. Cruz, a cross between sasquatch and shrek, SCREAMED at the top of his lungs About “politics” on Twitter. Did he think he was going to solve a court case in the Senate? Make people afraid of him? Cruz, we’re not afraid of cartoons.
