While wearing my blue MAGA hat hither and yon in Manhattan, walking miles and miles on thronged sidewalks in today’s beautiful weather, I’m wondering what’s happening with the $250 million lawsuit filed by Nicholas Sandmann’s lawyers against The Washington Compost. I know that lawsuits take time to work themselves through the system, but I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas Day to arrive.
I’ve also been wondering how large the claim for damages against CNN will be. Given the fact that CNN is vastly more influential than The Compost, I assume the claim for damages will be commensurately larger.
I don’t know what a reasonable amount would be, but for the sake of argument let’s say 100 times larger than the claim against the Compost. So, $250 million x 100 = $25,000,000,000.
Hmm. $25 billion. Sounds about right, but probably a tad unrealistic.
Okay, let’s try 10 times larger: $250 million x 10 = 2,500,000,000.
$2.5 billion. That seems reasonable, given CNN’s influence. So, I’m going to predict that the claim against CNN will be in the neighborhood of $2 billion. Wishful thinking? Maybe.
I’ve also been wondering how much the claim for damages against the vile hate-monger Bill Maher will be.
Here’s what Maher said, verbatim, about Nicholas Sandmann on his HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher:
“I don’t blame the kid, the smirking kid, I blame lead poisoning, and bad parenting. And, oh yeah, I blame that f**king kid. What a little prick. Smirkface! Like that’s not a dick move to stick your face in this elderly man’s [face].”
“This smirking kid says he was just trying to defuse the situation. Really? Next time you get into a fight, try that.”
“I do not spend a lot of time, I must tell you, around Catholic school children. But I do not get what Catholic priests see in these kids.”
How much should Maher be sued for? Is there a number high enough?
