The last paragraph is warning that Trump should heed.

Sandy Hook parents testify about the 'hell' Alex Jones inflicted on them through lies about the shooting
[Judge Maya Guerra] Gamble admonished [Alex] Jones for his behavior and said he had already violated his oath to tell the truth twice. "Mr. Jones, you may not say to this jury that you complied with discovery. That is not true. You may not say it again. You may not tell this jury that you are bankrupt. That is also not true," Gamble said.

"You are already under oath to tell the truth," Gamble added. "You've already violated that oath twice today, in just those two examples. It seems absurd to instruct you again that you must tell the truth while you testify. Yet here I am again."

"This is not your show," Gamble added.

Jones attempted to tell Gamble that he believed he was telling the truth.

"You believe everything you say is true, but your beliefs do not make something true," Gamble said. "That is that is what we're doing here. Just because you claim to think something is true does not make it true. It does not protect you. It is not allowed. You're under oath. That means things must actually be true when you say them."

    Y'know, Curt, you've been diagnosed with Stage 4 TDS but, within that stage, there are degrees of the illness. I think you may be so afflicted that you are about to lose reality.

    The Alex Jones case and the potential Trump, CNN legal tussle, have nuthin in common.

    CNN may be sued for claiming that Trump is lying about what he says he believes, not by reporting facts that suggest Trump’s beliefs are ill founded.

    You've always been our:

    Trump Trump Trump Trump
    Trump Trump Trump Trump
    Trump Trump Trump Trump...TRUMP

    guy.

    It might be time to take a deep breath and give that a rest, at least until the 024 campaign.
