Yesterday, a federal judge dismissed the defamation suit stormy daniels had brought against President Donald Trump.

This morning, Mr. Trump posted the following tweet:

Donald J. Trump


“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!


Horseface?  Really?

I certainly appreciate Donald Trump’s animus regarding stormy daniels and her sleazebag lawyer, michael avenatti.

But making a gratuitous, insulting reference to her facial appearance? What possible purpose does it serve, other than to generate sympathy for daniels while making Trump look like an immature schoolyard bully picking on someone while she is down?

The term “sore winner” was created for situations like this.

When is Donald Trump going to learn he is not playing in Cunningham Park or the PS 95 schoolyard; that he’s the President of the United States, not the kid down the block getting even.

How I hope against hope this is the last time he tweets anything like this.


UPDATE: I had the radio on this morning, and heard somebody posit that the reason Trump did this was that, although the defamation suit generated massive media coverage when it was filed, there was almost no reporting that it had been dismissed and that stormy daniels would be forced to pay Trump’s legal bills.

So, by tweeting “horseface”, Trump forced media to report not only the insult, but the reason he made it; i.e., that he won the defamation suit.

Interesting premise.

I don’t know whether I buy it, but, then again, who can say for sure?
