Can Trump sue comedians and media for Defamation of Character because of the Mueller Report?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, Trump vs. ‘SNL’: He actually has a point, reports a writer’s opinion that the FCC should “look into this.”
The Purpose of This Post
Now that the Mueller report has been completed, are late night comedians treading on ice when they supposedly joke or accuse Trump’s character in regards to collusion with Russia. Can a politician or public figure sue for defamation of character? Does free speech allow professional comedians or media to promote gossip after Congress spent 25 million dollars attempting to prove a gossip accusation to be truth or a lie?
Proverbs 18:8 – The words of a talebearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
What’s My Point?
For two years President Trump has been a subject of mirth and now unproven accusations of his character by both late-night comedians and certain media.
I am not a lawyer, but am curious if he now can sue because of the Mueller Report, so I looked up a legal source article about the legality of a political figure in regards to character defamation.
In My Opinion,
I am not certain if suing a comedian or media will breing more attention and profit to the accused. For example, all the late night shows viewing reports rose when they began gossiping about President Trump after the 2016 election.
Now that their party is over, will their ratings decrease?
Because now anything they say about Russia and Trump is pure gossip which according to King Solomon “go down.”
