You have to have a strong will, like Batman.  The Lasso is powerful, it was forged by a god by godly means (lol).  I don't think there are many who have resisted the power of the lasso, Wonder Woman has even been able to subdue Superman with it.  It isn't beyond corruption as seen with Genocide.

It's magic, it compels one to tell the truth. 

Depending on the writer one might be able to sidestep the truth through genuinely believed subjective truth... for example, if a color blind person earnestly believed what they were looking at was "green" but objectively it was "red", a person under the lasso's influence could say "green".  Additionally, where there are issues of interpretation or non-mutually exclusive truth, Wonder Woman might not get the optimal answer she's after.

Would the Joker be able to resist, he is so 100% insane getting the truth from him might not be possible, also being like the Spectre, Nekron, Ganthet and Darkseid might be to powerful.

Batman would not be able to resist.  It is generally accepted that it is not effective against gods.

Have no head. Hard to talk if you have no head... well unless your mouth is on your hand. Then slapping people becomes extra icky.
