Donald Trump threatens $25 million lawsuit over Macy's protest

http://news.yahoo.com/donald-trump-threatens-25-million-lawsuit-over-macys-004330340.html

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Donald Trump is apparently in a suing mood lately.

Not only has Trump filed suit against comedian Bill Maher after Maher jokingly suggested that Trump was spawned from sex between a human and an orangutan, the "Apprentice" host/media fixture is threatening to sue the organizer of a boycott asking that Macy's sever its ties with Trump.

Trump's attorney, Alan Garten, has sent a letter to Angelo Carusone, who launched an online petition urging Macy's to drop Trump, saying that Trump will sue Carusone for damages "not less than $25,000,000" if he continues his campaign.

"While you claim to be merely exercising or right to free speech, your egregious, pre-meditated and illegal conduct far exceeds anything protected by the Constitution," the letter, dated December 27, reads. "Rather than simply engage in lawful protest, you have apparently made it your mission to interfere with and intentionally disrupt Mr. Trump's longstanding and well-established business relationship with Macy's as well as his contractual dealings with other third parties through mob-like bullying and coercion."


Here's a link to the petition

1. If he goes through with all this bluster, he'll die broke

the way new money usually does. The legal fees will kill him and he's going to lose his lawsuits.

He's already losing his grip, his flagship Atlantic City casino having been sold at a bargain basement $20 million, less than it cost to build. There must be a lot of structural work that needs to be done, Trump going for glitz instead of stability.

All he needs now is for his latest trophy wife to take a hike. Once that happens, we'll know he's finished.

4. And he was accused of being a slum landlord.

The residents of Trump Towers claim it has turned into a dump. ALLEGEDLY. (I don't want him to put ME on his law suit list)
