WATCH: Thin Skinned Donald Trump Would Sue Over Negative Articles (VIDEO)


I really enjoy the battle between New York’s “Daily News ” and Donald Trump. They splatter Trump’s face all over their covers, describing him as “I’m With Stupid,” “Clown Runs For Prez,” “Dawn Of The Brain Dead,” and “Anti-Christ.” I don’t think the New York paper likes the thin skinned Trump, do you?

Who should know more about the guy who lives in New York City than the local newspaper? But Trump fights back:

‘I think the media is among the most dishonest groups of people I’ve ever met. They’re terrible.’

Trump is big on the Second Amendment, even telling us he sometime carries a gun. But, when it comes to the First Amendment, which includes freedom of speech, he is touchy-touchy and wants to blow it up.

I’ve never seen such a thin-skinned politician. I remember watching President Obama tease Trump at a White House Correspondent’s Dinner  several years ago. The businessman laughed at first, but soon he slouched down frozen, clearly displeased with the negative attention. The president mocked Trump’s ambitions toward the presidency, which was fair, because Trump led the march questioning Obama’s birth certificate.

I could see an enemy being created as the president spoke:

‘I know that he’s taken some flack lately—no one is prouder to put this birth-certificate matter to rest than the Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to the issues that matter, like: did we fake the moon landing?’

‘…We all know about our credentials and breadth of experience. For example—no, seriously—just recently, in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice.’

Obama explained that, when a team did not impress, Trump “didn’t blame Lil Jon or Meatloaf—you fired Gary Busey. And these are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night.”

Trump wants to sue anyone who does a negative story about him. At his rallies, he criticizes the media, members of which are surrounded by an angry mob of supporters. In a Ft. Worth, Texas rally, the business mogul said:

‘One of the things I’m going to do if I win… I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.’

Trump has been on the “New York Times’” case recently, because they dare to question the size of the billionaire’s fortune and the extent of his sway in New York. Friday, he said the paper is “a failing paper.”

‘We’re going to open up those libel laws so when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected.’

‘With me, they’re not protected, because I’m not like other people…We’re gonna open up those libel laws, folks, and we’re gonna have people sue you like you never get sued before.’
