Lawrence O’Donnell: ‘Donald Trump Cannot Afford To Sue Me And He Knows It’

Donald Trump continued duking it out with MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, yesterday, though he upped the ante a bit by threatening to sue. “I heard, because his show is unwatchable, that @Lawrence has made many false statements last night about me,” Trump tweeted. “Maybe I should sue him?”

On Wednesday’s Last Call, O’Donnell responded to Trump’s lawsuit threat. “That’s awfully soft for Donald, isn’t it?” O’Donnell hit back. “He doesn’t usually sound like a maybe kind of guy. Maybe I should sue him. Donald Trump is never going to sue me for two reasons: First, he knows he could never prove that a single thing I’ve said about him is untrue, and second, and this is by far the most important one, Donald Trump will never sue me because I know his big secret, his biggest secret and he knows that I know it. Donald Trump cannot afford to sue me and he knows it.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has threatened to sue an adversary. In 2006, Trump threatened to sue Rosie O’Donnell after she criticized his handling of a Miss USA scandal. “I’m going to sue her and I look forward to it.” The Donald never followed through on his lawsuit.
