While reading the article on Sheena Monnin, the former Miss Pennsylvania who must pay $5 million to the Donald Trump organization for stating her opinion that the judging for the Miss Universe pageant was rigged ("Court Upholds Ruling Against Beauty Queen," July 5), one thought came to my mind. Why is it that Mr. Trump can say anything he wants concerning President Barack Obama's birth, with no proof, and not have to pay?
Is Mr. Trump above the law or is he just so arrogant that he feels because he is rich he can say anything he wants?
I have no idea what truth is in Ms. Monnin's statements or Mr. Trump's very loud and very public statements. My question is why must Ms. Monnin pay while Mr. Trump simply continues his ways?
