On Thursday, Melania filed a lawsuit against the tabloid's parent company and blogger Webster Griffin Tarpley, claiming the paper's August 19 article about her—"Racy photos, and troubling questions about his wife's past that could derail Trump"—was false and defamatory. The article suggested, among other things, that a modeling company Melania worked for was also an escort service for high-end clients.
The complaint states:
The conduct of Daily Mail was despicable, abhorrent, intentional, malicious and oppressive, and thus justifies an award of punitive damages.
Wait, isn't that every Daily Mail article?
The Daily Mail's September 1 retraction said basically "sorry not sorry." They claim they never said the rumors about Melania's past were true, only that said rumors—based on an article published in Slovenian magazine Suzy and not much else—might negatively affect her husband's campaign.
Come on, Melania, give them a break. Spreading a rumor they know might be false and ruining someone's life while qualifying it with concern trolling is their entire business model. And you Trumps love supporting businesses, right?
