How can we have a discussion on issues when one side tells outrageous lies about the positions held by the other side?
The only thing here that has any relationship to the truth is the one about cities being safe havens for illegal aliens (and this is an oversimplification).
It’s infuriating that Trump says Democrats want open borders and are weak on terrorism and national defense. I think a president who sucks up to our enemy Putin is weak on terrorism and national defense.
I don’t think it matters that Stormy Daniels is a porn star. Her occupation does not factor into the activities covered by the suit. She met Trump in a hotel, not on a porn movie set. If, for example, Daniels was a teacher, would the media keep mentioning that? I doubt it. I don’t think it’s fair to Trump either for the same reasons. The alleged payoff had nothing to do with her profession. I wish the media would use her real name (Stephanie Clifford) and leave her occupation out of it when discussing the lawsuits.
However, it is relevant when discussing how she is profiting from the publicity by having a tour.
Belated happy birthday to her – she turned 39 on March 17th.
Trump’s rants about the Mueller investigation sound familiar.
I’m sending out the hit song “Stormy” from 1968 to Stormy Daniels.
The Trump camp’s story just gets more and more implausible. Are we really supposed to believe Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels on his own? Are we supposed to believe Trump knew nothing about this when one of his organization’s lawyers was involved the arbitration case against Daniels? The truth will eventually get out and I expect it to be: Trump had an affair with Daniels and paid her to keep quiet.
Here’s a good analysis by Chris Cillizza of CNN including commentary by Jeffrey Toobin.
There are two reasons why the Trump camp isn’t admitting everything:
- There are other women who could file cases against Trump. You really didn’t think this was an isolated situation, did you?
- This may be a violation of election laws.
