First Lady Melania gathered her team to fight liberals who got their claws on her family. Smart move.
She already won one battle against the blogger who dared to claim she was a “high-end escort.” This was the lamest stroke anyone could ever pull. How can they say anything like this?
Judge allows first lady Melania Trump to move ahead with libel lawsuit against blogger who reported escort rumors. https://t.co/Op0CyK7gSB

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Sharon Burrell rejected arguments from lawyers for blogger Webster Tarpley to dismiss Trump’s suit for failing to meet the “actual malice” standard for public figures. The judge also turned down Tarpley’s effort to dismiss the suit under a Maryland law aimed at quickly shutting down bad-faith lawsuits intended to intimidate people speaking out on issues of public concern.
“The court finds the plaintiff has stated a claim for defamation,” Burrell ruled after hearing about 40 minutes of arguments on the issue in a Rockville courtroom. “The court believes most people, when they hear the words ‘high-end escort’ that describes a prostitute. There could be no more defamatory statement than to call a woman a prostitute.”
The judge also accused Tarpley’s lawyers of playing “word games” by arguing that his claims that Melania Trump suffered a mental breakdown were not libelous.
The first family was a huge target during the pre-election season, and the same happens now, when Donald Trump is officially the President of America. Liberals went that far to go after his youngest son Barron. Who would write nasty stuff about a child? Ignorant reporters, of course. Hopefully, it will all end up well. It’s time for people to understand that we made a good choice.
What do you think about this scandal? How will the case end?
