NEW YORK -- Donald Trump cant be sued for defamation by a political strategist who said her reputation was trashed after then-candidate Trump called her a dummy on Twitter during last years presidential campaign, according to a judges decision made public Tuesday.
Manhattan state Supreme Court Judge Barbara Jaffe ruled that though Mr. Trumps tweets about public relations strategist and Republican consultant Cheryl Jacobus were rife with vague and simplistic insults, they were expressions of opinion protected by the First Amendment.

Please. Hillary called us racist xenophobic homophobic irreedmable deplorable nazis.
She’s a dummy just for trying to sue over this.
What? how is that 20 pages? Its a simple freedom speech issue. Waste of paper.
You can bet Jacobus was in on the peegate saga - she’s besties with Rick Wilson.
The court agreed with Trump... she is a dummy.
She (or her lawyer) was probably thinking Donald Trump with his wealth would just settle out of court, throw $100,000 her way and be done with it (as many wealthy people do). They didn’t realize that’s not how Donald Trump plays ball, he’ll gladly spend $1 million in legal fees to make sure you don’t win $10,000....
Cultural marxists are sick people!
Should have gone to trial. Can you imagine the discovery process? Having her subpeonad to participate in professional evaluations of her competency. Deep examination of the label ‘dummy’ - is it being a little stupid, generally foolish, or ‘hold muh beer’ full tilt retard? Lots of legal fees, could have been awesome.
First Amendment...you big Dummy!!!

That would be a hell of a judgement:
“Plaintiff cannot prevail because in slander and liberal cases truth is an absolute defense and Plaintiff is, indeed, a dummy.”
So this Cheryl Jacobus sued over being called a dummy on Twitter? Not only does she deserve to lose, but she should be forced to pay Trump’s legal fees too. This is beyond ridiculous.
See, Cheryl. You are a dummy.
Truth is always the best defense.
The Deplorable Army needs to get on Twitter and send a barrage of tweets calling her a dummy!!
It comes from renewable trees. Rest easy.
Politics ain’t beanbag.
That said, Donald isn’t normally one to flatly turn down any kind of reasonable deal. He discussed dozens of positions, some of them with dozens of people. Is she complaining about not getting considered, or about losing out afterwards? Besides his appointees need to be able to put up with a certain amount of guff. If “dummy” throws her off balance, what would millions of Democrats do?
Jacobes has always been at the bottom of the list of “inspiring” GOPE yakkers, since GHW BUSH.
She’s just short of a Leftist and unimpressive at best and never has been on any network’s A List, as a guest yakker.
What a DUMMY!
Truth is the best defense against slander. Surprised no one else posted that.
Cheryl Jacobus, you should have quit with this a long time ago. How much money did you waste on such frivolous pursuits?
rofl....i was just thinkin’ this...
In context, it could be argued that Trump was referring to her making a bad decision to become hostile after being turned down, thus burning all her bridges.
At least in the era of “fake” she is a real dummy. :)
