Default Trump's Legal Threats Backfire

The president is used to getting his way by bluster and intimidation, but the strategy that once worked for him is now working against him.

Minutes after the Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes, Team Trump fired off a heavy-breathing lawyer’s letter, bristling with phrases like “cease and desist” and “retract and apologize.”

This is exactly the approach by which Donald Trump inadvertently made millions for Michael Wolff. Having so spectacularly backfired the first time, why do it again? The short answer is: Team Trump knows nothing else.

I may never get to see Trump led out of the White House in handcuffs but at the very least it's nice to know he doesn't always get to win.
