Great news, fellow Americans. Our tax dollars may now be used to help defend President Donald Trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who claims Trump raped her.

I don’t know about you all, but when I think about how I want the government to use my money, the first thing that comes to mind is: Keep America safe. But the second thing is: Keep President Trump safe from a deposition and possibly a DNA test that could prove conclusively whether he raped journalist E. Jean Carroll and defamed her by calling her a liar and saying he never met her and “she’s not my type.”

On Tuesday, attorneys with the U.S. Justice Department asked that Carroll’s defamation lawsuit be moved from New York state courts to federal court, meaning the defendant would become the U.S. government and not President Trump. The attorneys assert that Trump was “acting within the scope of his office as President of the United States” in 2019 when he denied Carroll’s allegation that he raped her more than two decades ago in a New York City department store.

This would accomplish two very sensible things: Trump won’t have to pay legal costs, because government attorneys will handle the case; if Trump loses, we, the taxpayers, get the honor of paying any damages that are awarded!

And as a bonus, it slows Carroll’s case down. A state judge in New York recently issued a ruling that might have required President Trump to be deposed before the Nov. 3 presidential election. Who needs that kind of embarrassment, right?

Carroll sued Trump last November, saying that after she published a book claiming he raped her, Trump lied in interviews by saying he never met her. Could all this be cleared up with a simple DNA test? Probably. But it hardly seems fair that the president should be forced to do something he doesn’t want to do.

Having we the people shoulder the cost of his legal defense seems the least we can do after all this president has done for us. Things like: building a wall that exists if we believe hard enough; owning the libs; not criticizing white criminals as long as they support him; and saving America from the coronavirus by only letting 189,000 (at last count) Americans die rather than ALL Americans.

The Justice Department’s filings in federal court in Manhattan are being called “unprecedented” simply because before William Barr, no previous U.S. attorney general had the guts to interpret the laws in ways that are both nakedly corrupt and intellectually ridiculous. It’s genius, assuming you’re a patriot who cares about protecting President Trump from criticism more than you care about silly things like “laws” and “the appearance of a functioning democracy.”

Roberta Kaplan, Carroll’s lawyer, said this about the justice department’s motion and its timing relative to the New York judge’s recent ruling: “Realizing that there was no valid basis to appeal that decision in the New York courts, on the very day that he would have been required to appeal, Trump instead enlisted the U.S. Department of Justice to replace his private lawyers and argue that when he lied about sexually assaulting our client, explaining that she ‘wasn’t his type,’ he was acting in his official capacity as President of the United States. Even in today’s world, that argument is shocking. It offends me as a lawyer, and offends me even more as a citizen. Trump’s effort to wield the power of the U.S. government to evade responsibility for his private misconduct is without precedent, and shows even more starkly how far he is willing to go to prevent the truth from coming out.”

To which I say: “Blah, blah, blah.” Apparently Kaplan forgot the true motto of the America Trump has made great again: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what your country can do to help Donald Trump.”

This Justice Department move comes on the heels of reports that Trump’s reelection campaign is short on money, with a considerable chunk of its once-massive war chest already spent on legal bills. I’m sure that is no way connected to having the government take over his legal defense in the Carroll case, but the bottom line is that we, the taxpayers, need to make sure as much of our money as possible is going to Trump.

His next move should be to order the Federal Reserve to replenish his campaign coffers. He should also make sure the DOJ is handling any Trump family legal matters, like parking tickets, bankruptcies or indictments for operating fraudulent charities.

It would also be helpful for the president if the Department of the Interior declared all Trump properties National Historic Landmarks, NASA built a Trump Casino & Spaceport on the moon and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service defined fast food as “extremely healthy.”

As an avid supporter of this president, I encourage him to use as much of my money as possible to further his own interests. Because, as the Justice Department’s intervention in Carroll’s defamation lawsuit shows us, conclusively, America and Donald Trump are now one and the same.

wonder why Rex has said nothing about Harris praising a black man for raping a woman...double standard working overtime

hayduke2

Because that exists only in your mind

[offtopic] and spin, Jersey

More deflection and whataboutism...is that all ya got nowadays? Did she specifically praise the rape? Let’s see your nonexistent sources. Spin spin spin.

jerseygrl42

all the lefty liars are coming out to try to destroy this President who has done more good for the Citizens of this country than any other President in the last 50 years ..just a bunch of socialist buffoons

hayduke2

Jersey- your stand-up routine is sad. 🤣🤣

Delusion is the suit you wear...it’s saggy.

Roy Cohn Lives! Trump cult members, and those not able to understand the threat of "history repeating itself".....rejoice! All to provide cover to a man (term used loosely here) who knows he is unable to win without cheating, grifting, diverting and lying. Note how cult members are quick to ignore the Woodward tapes.

you must be talking about incompetent, liar, thief Biden

Jersey, Sometimes I wonder if you have any objectivity. No, I'm kidding.

Greg F

Right...while trump has documented lies that make pinnochio’s nose look tiny. Troll on. NJ is an armpit of a place BTW.

There have been times when I've wondered just how ignorant someone can be and, when I read something like Trump has "let 189,000 Americans die rather than ALL Americans," I get a really good idea. A biased, worthless crack like that should get him a prime position in the LLBTT (Liberal Left Bully Tag Team.) What say you, fido, you always have room for another, right?

olefool

You should have read and watched the news this morning. Trump lied and almost 200,000 (so far) people died. Listen to the tapes CD... in his own words, he lied to Americans.

matts853

He sure did. And if he loses or refuses to leave office he should be immediately impeached for this.

matts853

Impeached AND removed this time.

jerseygrl42

absurdity at work

hayduke2

"absurdity at work" - then quit posting jersey

hayduke2

Deny, divert, create strawmen, call out others - you've learned well CD.

CD, I’m pretty sure you live in the Faux News bubble where Trump’s cons and failures are never discussed or are covered up with misinformation. So perhaps you haven’t heard the Woodward tapes where Trump admitted out loud that he downplayed (that means lied) to America about the threat Covid posed to public health. He told Woodward how easy it spreads, how it’s 5x more lethal than the flu, and that it impacts both young and old alike.

He knew all these things, yet he has repeatedly and consistently lied about them to this day.

He also didn’t take appropriate action to slow-stop the spread of the virus and in fact did just the opposite by mocking masks, failing to ensure adequate PPE supplies, holding super spreader rallies, and reopening too soon. He willfully and negligently did all these despicable things to save his political life at the expense of yours and mine. And in the process he prolonged the economic recession, just like the experts warned would happen. People are suffering CD because of Trump’s selfishness.

So yes, he is directly responsible for the needles loss of 10s of thousands of souls. This isn’t conjecture, it’s fact put out by the CDC.

You’ve been lied to and your life put in danger by Trump, CD. Now that you know for this for a fact, are you really willing to let Trump get away with this for 4 more years?

C.D.Reid

So, are you guys gonna vote Rex Huppke into your LLBTT club?

threecents

No, we want to keep it local.

Good point CD that not all the US deaths are Trump's fault, but many of them are, and the US epidemic probably would be mostly over if he had followed his scientists guidance and if his administration had not disbanded the federal pandemic offices and contingency plans set up during the Obama years. All the Yah, but...'s will not change that. Trump said we were more ready than any other country, but we are having the worst outcome.

bosco

CD, weren't the early estimates of the death toll for the US between 2.2 and 2.5 million? The Monday Morning Quarterbacks offer only criticism but look at their shoes and mumble when asked what actions they would have taken differently based on the information then available. Even Biden continued to hold crowded campaign events while telling the Bidenettes not to panic.

The left and their state-run propaganda arm's hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Who lies about WMD that got millions killed of all nationalities? A Republican. Who lies at record pace daily? Trump...and they are all well documented. CD read-only...can’t recited anything new....just spews on tired old reruns.
