Trump walks into a legal trap

President Donald Trump can't keep his mouth shut. He tweeted that Stormy Daniels was lying about a man who threatened her. His tweet reads, "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!" Huffington Post. If I was Trump's lawyer I would tell him that he's got to stay out of litigation at this time because that leads to discovery and eventually to his deposition. You really don't want to be talking about having sex with an adult film actress. And you certainly don't want to be asked under oath why she was paid off since that can lead to a charge of campaign finance violations.

Of course, the conservative authoritarian can't help himself. So, now he's just tweeted his way into a defamation suit. Here comes the depositions. Trump is like Sideshow Bob in The Simpsons who keeps walking into rakes and hitting himself. (Video below.)
