NY Times Still Waiting on Trump’s Lawsuit

Any day now, Don Don.

It has been one full week since Donald Trump’s lawyer threatened the New York Times with a lawsuit. Seven whole days and…? Nothing. The Times is still waiting on the big, tough bully to follow through.

Count Times executive editor Dean Baquet among those who wasn’t concerned about Trump’s threat. “I never thought he had a case,” Baquet told Politico. “What people running for office do is try to distract you from allegations, and that’s what he’s doing.”

Another Times staffer who didn’t give a sh*t was the paper’s attorney David McCraw, who penned such an amazing response to Trump that it went viral.

We’ll check back in another week on that lawsuit. We’re sure Trump will have made it official by then.
