‘How bad is it?’: Nicolle Wallace notices even the ‘president’s safe space’ is attacking him today

on

MSNBC’s host of “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace mocked the ongoing fallout from President Donald Trump siding with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia over American intelligence agencies on Wednesday.

“Donald Trump’s lurch to Saudi Arabia’s defense — despite an assessment from the U.S. intelligence community that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia ordered the killing of a U.S. permanent resident — is generating harsh condemnation for the president from his own party and around the world,” she continued.

The host then ran down the plethora of criticism of Trump’s choice.

Joe Scarborough can sue for defamation — and ‘it could require Mr. Trump to pay substantial punitive damages’: Legal expert

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough may have a defamation case against President Donald Trump, according to one legal expert.

Peter Schuck, an emeritus professor of law at Yale and visiting professor at the University of California, Berkeley, laid out the case against the president in a new column for the New York Times.

"Trump’s wantonly cruel tweets about the tragic death in 2001 of Lori Klausutis are distinctive," Schuck writes. "They may constitute intentional torts for which a civil jury could award punitive damages against him."
