Government enacts law (usuall, not so much yours right now) but courts interpret it.


Presumably some crass, badly written Mr. Trump law about libel would struggle to make it, and, if it did, would be (mostly) sensibly dealt with by your courts?





Any "law" would have to get through congress first.  But if it did, then yes, the courts would make sure our constitutional protection of free speech wins the day.

He is so thin skinned.  Every president that i can remember had a unflattering book written about them.



*Chuckle* Unflattering? Well, I suppose no one can say you lack the ability of understatement. It's a bit more than that to say the least. BTW, what happened to the tapes that he claimed to have? Wolff has yet to release any of them. With all of the criticism the book has received, it only makes sense that he would start releasing such material, to help back material in his own book.

Good.
