President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr.

Should the Justice Department defend the president’s private mess on the taxpayers dime

I wish I could snap my fingers and have the taxpayers foot the bill every time I got in trouble. Unfortunately, I can’t, but Donald Trump can.

In a case that proves we can’t get much lower as a country, the Justice Department has stepped in to defend Trump in a defamation case filed by a woman who says Trump raped her two decades ago. In case you’re wondering, that’s way before Trump became president, so you’d think he’d have to get his own lawyer. 

But to borrow a phrase from old folks, that’s too much like right. 

Trump, who called the woman a liar while he was president, is using the Justice Department to defend him because he claims he was acting in his official capacity when he tried to drag her name through the mud. Her name, by the way, is E Jean Carroll, and she was an advice columnist for years.

Which is cool, because I’ve got a little advice for Ms. Carroll. Keep fighting. Because apparently, you’ve got a dress you say you were wearing during the alleged attack, and you say that dress has some of the president’s DNA on it. Well, there’s only one way to find out if that’s true, and that’s to get a DNA sample from the president. 

Oddly enough, a state judge had just cleared the way for Ms. Carroll to do that when the Justice Department swooped in. As a result, the whole thing might go to federal court, or it might not. I don’t know.

But I do know this. My tax dollars should not be defending the president against any charge connected to a rape allegation from 20 years ago. Because if the president did what Ms Carroll claims he did, then he needs to pay … in more ways than one.
