Fake news! A lot of people have been saying it was the best dinner they had ever had with very fine people on every side of the table.

Maggie Haberman reports in "Confidence Man," out tomorrow, that when former President Trump was about to be discharged after COVID treatment, he had an idea that he eventually abandoned:

He came up with a plan he told associates was inspired by the singer James Brown, whom he loved watching toss off his cape while onstage, but it was in line with his love of professional wrestling as well:

[H]e would be wheeled out of Walter Reed in a chair and, once outdoors, he would dramatically stand up, then open his button-down dress shirt to reveal [a] Superman logo beneath it. (Trump was so serious about it that he called the campaign headquarters to instruct an aide, Max Miller, to procure the Superman shirts; Miller was sent to a Virginia big-box store.)

That would undeniably have been pretty funny. An XXXL Superman T-shirt, already dark under the sleeves from the exertion of doing, well, more or less anything at all.

He's suing CNN for a half billion dollars now apparently. Didn't he try something like that just recently? I lose track to be honest.

Donald Trump has sued cable TV network CNN, claiming defamation and seeking punitive damages of $475m, according to a Florida court filing on Monday.
The US cable news station has attempted to smear the former US president “with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler’,” Trump’s lawyers claimed. The lawsuit has been filed in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.

It's a great font, an American classic! All the best comic books used it, with a lot of emphasis and strength. They tried to cancel comic sans but they couldn't do it! Make sans comic again!

@Leo the thing the Post and the broader right doing at the moment, where they exaggerate all the violence to try to make the cities seem really dangerous, is that a new thing from the last couple of years or have they always done that?

it's a long tradition on the right, just sometimes shouted louder and more focused than others. the "Central Park jogger" case in '89 was one time of peak right-wing hysteria, an incident being elevated to a city at the mercy of "wilding" by black gangs. you may recall the "caravans" of dangerous illegals tracked daily by Fox and others in 2018 as they made their way through Central America and Mexico to invade the southern border. amazingly, the imminent threat and right-wing media coverage ended the day after the 2018 midterm elections. Weird, that.

Was that the one where Trump took out a full-page ad demanding the death penalty for the kids involved, and they later turned out to be innocent and had had fake confessions beaten out of them by NYPD's finest?
