Former Libertarian Party presidential candidate and professional Trump bootlicker Wayne Allyn Root is one of the most deranged people in the country at this point. He’s convinced that ISIS was behind the Vegas shootings and says he’s going to sue news outlets that won’t report that, and will own them all when he’s done.
“ISIS, their fingerprints were all over this thing,” he said. “This is what I said from the first second and GQ and the Washington Post and Slate magazine and Time magazine and 20 others tried to destroy me and wipe my career off the face of the earth. It really didn’t matter—I gave them the middle finger and told them to go screw themselves because I don’t care what they think.”“I have nothing to worry about so I laugh in their liberal commie faces, their liberal commie Muslim-sympathizer faces,” Root continued. “Screw you! Come and get me. Screw you.”
“They tried to destroy me,” Root added, “and if it turns out to be ISIS, you better all lawyer up because we’re coming after you with the best lawyer gunslingers in the world. I’ll be hiring Donald Trump’s lawyers to come after you and destroy you. I will own the Washington Post [for] the way you tried to slander me when all I did was report the truth.”
Yeah, I’m sure they’re quaking in fear at the thought of this crackpot suing them over this. Like his hero Trump, he interprets any criticism of him as an attempt to destroy him and responds with this kind of juvenile, pseudo-macho bluster. Root has been spreading all kinds of false claims about the shooting on his show and some news outlets have reported on that. They’ve quoted the things he’s been saying. There is nothing even remotely actionable in a lawsuit about any of that, and if Root thinks there is, he’s an idiot.
