Asshat.
Did you know that Donald Trump is an even bigger asshole than you ever thought possible?
Donald Trump can’t fire the man protesting his relationship with Macy’s, but the Apprentice star might have sights on suing him.

Trump attorney Alan Garten has sent a cease and desist letter to Angelo Carusone, organizer of the online campaign Dump Trump, and threatened to seek damages of “not less than” $25 million if the protest continues, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Angelo Carusone was the guy behind Dump Rush, which convinced over 100 advertisers to drop Rush Limbaugh's show after his infamous Sandra Fluke comments. His focus on Donald Trump is clearly having an effect—not just the original protest, but the fact that Carusone released the threatening letter.
"The guy’s desperate for media attention -- the guy's a loser," [Trump's lawyer] says, adding that the protest has had no negative effect on the sales of Trump merchandise at Macy's.
So do you send a loser desperate for media attention a letter threatening a $25 million dollar lawsuit if the protest is really not having an effect?

Trump outed himself as a full-fledged loon last year, and he's intent on proving to the world that there was nothing temporary about that insanity.

Sign the petition asking Macy's to sever business ties with Trump over his sexist and racially charged rhetoric that is in direct conflict with the Macy’s family-based brand and image. That, and the fact that the clinically insane are really poor spokespeople for pretty much anything.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
