    Nah, they're just showing themselves to be the type that would endorse any nonsense that got them closer to power.

    Basically, yeah.

    Sure, Ivanka and Jared always had the virtue, if you can call it that, of being selfish amoral twats, but being sane selfish amoral twats who weren't complete morons and mostly understood how functioning adult human beings are supposed to act.

    But Princess Vanky getting some distance from Daddy just means that she perceives getting some distance as being to her advantage.

    I think we can assume that anyone who chooses Mar a Lago as a venue would be favorable to Trump and his making an appearance.

    Seems Ivanka gave false statements in her deposition about the inauguration. Of course, so did Trump Jr and he hasn't suffered any consequences, so this may be moot.

    What a lovely story about Ivanka and Jared, definitely crafted and leaked by Ivanka and Jared, trying to distance themselves from the fucking mess they helped create

    These fucking people :rolleyes:

    and that's beside the real story that he took the stage in Sarasota and basically confirmed the truth of all the allegations in the indictments this week.

    I get the allegation that his style is to cover up evil with buffoonery but possibly he is just indescribably stupid.

    Unfortunately for the public, there is little chance that a suit along these lines would get to the discovery stage. It's pretty clear that there is no obligation by Facebook, Twitter or the rest of them to allow anyone to be users in general, and indeed if anything, a court forcing a private company to allow a political operative to use their platform would be a violation of the First Amendment, as it would be the government compelling speech. Also, I'm guessing the print on the user agreements we agree to when signing up for a social media account explicitly give Big Tech rights to constrain or ban speech on their various platforms. So even if you could make a straight-faced argument that the First Amendment applies to the action of non-government actors who restrict speech, the fact that Trump and co. signed away those rights to participate in the platforms makes this kind of claim non-viable.

    So since I think you are a lawyer IIRC, is there a way to procedurally force the trial, or would it just be denied by the courts outright? Because it is trump, and he is prone to shooting himself in the foot, and I am hoping for that. Is that just a fool's hope because no court is even going to allow this, or could they just sit back and watch as he puts himself into the fire so to speak? I get that judges do not want everyone just making up lawsuits for fun because they think they are wrong, but might they be compelled to allow this so that they can pretend they are being fair to the idiot, and let him waste the time of the really stupid lawyers who are filing this on his behalf because we know they will never get paid?
