Ever since he was banned from Facebook and Twitter, Donald Trump has been looking for a new way to keep his fan base churned up on the daily. He’s already shuttered his failed blog, and the new app created by one of his last remaining advisors was hacked immediately upon its launch. In a recent interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump bloviated that he would sue the platforms because that’s what the Florida Retiree does any time he feels slighted. It’s basically a cliche at this point, and it’s unlikely such a lawsuit would ever see the light of day, especially with those pesky indictments already filed against the Trump Organization and many more still to come.
But Trump lives behind a constant smokescreen of lies where he tries everything he can to juggle his multiple scandals and make them all seem like totally normal things that happen all the time. So instead of facing the reality of what’s awaiting him in New York, as well as the upcoming election fraud investigation in Georgia, Trump just turns the smoke machine up to 11 and adds more lies to hide the ones he’s already told.
But he can’t fool Jim Acosta. Trump’s least favorite sparring partner since Melania has been given an anchor spot on CNN, and he’s been killing it while going after all the members of the GOP who won’t sit for real interviews.
Somebody ghostwrote an op-ed for the former guy in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal where they mostly got his voice down, with just less whining than usual. Blaming “Big Tech” for the issues he caused all by himself, the piece claims “Big Tech companies are being used to impose illegal and unconstitutional government censorship.” It declares that “the tech companies are doing the government’s bidding, colluding to censor unapproved ideas” and that, “in effect, Big Tech has been illegally deputized as the censorship arm of the U.S. government.”
NEW: The dark-money group backing Trump’s ridiculous big tech lawsuit directed people to a website where they can join the suit. But it’s a fundraising page, and it explicitly says you won’t be joining any lawsuit. Me @thedailybeast https://t.co/hWTRvHPhGl

Acosta hosted former Richard Nixon White House counsel John Dean on his show on Sunday to discuss Trump’s latest frivolous lawsuit. Dean joked during the segment that he’d “pay to handle” Trump’s deposition. Watch the two gleefully take Trump apart, below.
