They're public figures, obviously. Do they meet the legal definition of public figures, which means it's more difficult for them to win a libel or slander case, because the defendant was motivated by actual malice? That's more difficult. Arguing that is what makes lawyers rich.

They're public figures, obviously. Do they meet the legal definition of public figures, which means it's more difficult for them to win a libel or slander case, because they have to prove that the defendant was motivated by actual malice? That's a more difficult question. Arguing that sort of thing is what makes lawyers rich.
