Poor crybaby Donald Trump is all verklempt again Thursday morning. It isn’t because his criminal cohort Steve Bannon was indicted again for stealing money from Trump supporters. And it wasn’t because the law is “persecuting” him for his treasonous theft of highly sensitive national security materials, instead of President Biden or his arch-nemesis Hillary Clinton.
Nope. What is eating Trump up this morning is that Fox News apparently ran an ad by the Lincoln Project, a group of relatively sane, non-MAGA Republicans. And as he is known to do, Trump freaked out over that act of betrayal of Dear Leader. In Trump’s dystopian world, no one is allowed to express an independent thought, especially if it is even marginally critical of the cult master. So in retaliation for Fox’s disloyalty, Trump posted the following comment on his floundering Twitter rip off, Truth Social…
“The Perverts and Lowlifes of the Lincoln Project are back on, where else, Fox News. I thought they ran away to the asylum after their last catastrophic campaign, with charges made against them that were big time sleaze, and me getting many millions more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016. The Paul Ryun run Fox only has high standards for ‘Trump’ ads, but not for anyone else. The Perverts should not be allowed to ‘false advertise,’ and Fox News should not allow it to happen. See you all in Court!!!”
It’s ironic that the guy known for spanking porn stars and coveting his daughter is calling others “perverts.” It’s also curious that he’s so bug-eyed over a television ad by people he thinks suffered a “catastrophic” defeat in their last campaign. But it’s typical – and tedious – that he’s still bragging about getting more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, while ignoring the fact that it was seven million fewer votes than Biden got.
More notable is that Trump is, once again, threatening to sue the object of his hostility. This time it’s his own Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News. Setting aside that he thinks that Paul Ryan (whose name Trump can’t spell) is running the network, Trump has the preposterous notion that he can sue Fox for false advertising.
First of all, it is the Lincoln Project’s ad, not Fox News. So he’s threatening to sue the wrong party. Secondly, the ad isn’t false. It is simply reporting factually that Trump has blatantly and repeatedly ripped off his own followers. See for yourself…
“Trump told you the election was stolen to rip you off; to sucker you; to take your hard-earned money and shovel it into his pockets. […] It was a sucker’s game all along. And you know who the sucker is? It’s you.”

If Trump were serious about suing (which he rarely is), he would find himself in court having to go through discovery, wherein he would have to provide the Lincoln Project with personal documentation that would likely prove the accuracy of the ad. The case would also force Trump to sit through the Lincoln Project’s defense that would include voluminous proof of Trump’s illegal and unethical grifting.
For its part, one of the Lincoln Project’s founders, Rick Wilson, “double dog dared” Trump to sue them. And it’s all you need to know about their attitude toward the lying, frightened, and impotent, twice impeached, Putin loving, traitor, and former reality TV game show host…
Donald Trump is "Truthing" that he's going to sue @ProjectLincoln.
