LOL: Klayman, the lawyer behind the NSA lawsuit, wants to sue CNN after his appearance on Tuesday

He calls a CNN host (Don Lemon) "a well-known ultra-leftist African-American political activist who pursues a LGBT sexual agenda.”

Larry Klayman, an anti-Obama birther guy who became suddenly relevant this week when federal judge Richard Leon ruled in his favor against the National Security Administration's bulk surveillance programs, might sue CNN next, after a disastrous appearance on the network to discuss his legal victory. Klayman announced his intention to sue the network in a Thursday interview with World Net Daily, claiming that the segment was a "hit piece orchestrated against me by the Obama White House with the direct involvement of the Democratic National Committee."

Here's basically what happened to make Klayman so litigious in this instance: on Tuesday, Klayman went on CNN to discuss the ruling in his favor, with Don Lemon and Jeffrey Toobin. But Klayman had other points he wanted to make, particularly against Lemon, which resulted in the network ending the segment early — it began with Klayman calling the whole interview a "hit piece," and devolved from there. On Thursday, Klayman said that the interview itself was comparable to Martin Bashir's comments about Sarah Palin, the ones that got him fired. Then he added:

“What Lemon did was classless and sleazy. Lemon is a well-known ultra-leftist African-American political activist who pursues a LGBT sexual agenda.


According to World Net Daily, Klayman is considering a suit against CNN, claiming that "the network had conspired to ruin his reputation with an interview set up to ambush him on air and marginalize him and his ongoing litigation against the NSA."

1. So now he has found something else to raise hell about, some just cannot be happy.

Perhaps we should use up his spare time by filing lawsuits against him for violating our Constitution rights.

4. He is completely unhinged

 

I'm actually worried he could do something violent or convince somebody to do something violent.

3. Ugh.

 

I'm sick of people like Klayman having free and open access to our judicial system to bring forward whatever frivolous lawsuit they like.

They're clogging up the tubes of justice with their bullshit.

You're absolutely right. They're clogging the legal system with these frivolous lawsuits.

7. He sued his own mother and was famous for bringing all the lawsuits against Clinton. He sued his own

mother. One of the reasons he continues on is because he used to have some very wealthy right wing backers. He also runs Judicial Watch a right wing astro turn org.
