America’s Mayor goes ‘El Bonzo Seco’*

As most people know, reporters have to be really careful with the words they choose, otherwise they can easily be sued for libel.

This is why they say a politician told a falsehood, or a misleading statement, because they’ll be sued if they flat out call something a lie. And it’s also why they say collusion instead of conspiracy.

And of course, this is also why Trump wants to tighten the libel laws, so he could sue anyone he wants for saying anything he doesn’t like. When you lie as much as he does, you want to be able to sue anyone who reports that you told an untruth, a fib, falsehood, fabrication, deception, fiction, falsification, white lie, half-truth, exaggeration, tall tale, a whopper, fibbing, misinformation, misleading, or any other synonym that, while less legally binding, still means he’s a lying sack of shit.

“I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime,” Rudy Giuliani actually said this on Fox & Friends.

Anyway, I guess one would assume that his lawyer knows that. So, is Rudy being misleading?
