In a laughable attempt at what would appear to be a truly bizarre effort to frighten CNN, Donald Trump has sent lawsuit threats to the network. First, thge letter claims CNN is biased against Trump (almost typed “the president” but I’m not calling him that any more). The letter goes on to whine:

“Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation.”

Grammatical issues aside, Trump is apparently arguing that CNN is violating truth in advertising laws. Huh? So he’s equating news coverage with advertising, and then saying it’s untruthful, and somehow — hell, I don’t know.


But props for unfair, unfounded, unethical, and unlawful. That’s some serious alliteration there. Maybe Fox News will adopt it as their new slogan.
