Stormy refuses to say if she has destroyed all of the evidence. So there’s more to come.
But it really isn’t about the sex, it’s about the thuggish behavior. And THAT seems totally believable.
The thing about being in the White House and being president that is different than being a private citizen is there is a different expectation of privacy and accountability. For a guy who is used to paying people off, stiffing contractors, going bankrupt multiple times and having his staff sign NDA’s, all without consequence, that must be supremely irritating to him.
Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal could open the flood gates to all kinds of nasty things that The Donald has done in his lifetime. We already know there are more women lined up who say they were threatened. There must be servants and valets and limo drivers and contractors and secretaries and business partners and executive Vice Presidents and even wives who could just say, “what the hell, why not just get it all out there. He’ll spend the rest of his life playing whack-a-mole trying to shut everyone up again”.
You can only treat people badly for so long before it all starts to catch up with you.
You know, we liberals might as well just get it all out there too. We DON’T like Donald Trump and we DO want to get him out of office as quickly as possible. But when Republicans accuse us of that, they think it’s some kind of tribal thing. Or revenge for what the right did to Bill Clinton.
What the right did to Bill Clinton back in the 90s started out as a way to keep him completely consumed with lawsuits throughout his terms. Monica Lewinsky was discovered in 1998. But he’d already had 5 years of nuisance investigations over Whitewater, Vince Foster, and Hillary’s billing records before then. They all came do nothing but we know why the right did it. They pretty much spelled it out. They wanted to derail his presidency because people like Newt Gingrich were authoritarian assholes. It was petty and mean and cost everyone in the White House a fortune in legal fees. The right was delighted with jamming the works even if it meant shutting down government for a couple of weeks. It was all about spite and fury at losing the White House, not because Clinton was a bad president.
There’s quite a lot of projection here from the right. They’re assuming that we have the same motives. They think it’s spite and that Hillary deserved the White House. And while there is an element of the latter, the former is not true at all.
The reason we want him out is because he runs the Trump Crime Family. His business is rotten to the core, his family is enriching itself and they have a history of thuggish behavior and hiding behind payoffs and secret agreements. I even have a new view of Ivanka these days. She’s very good at image maintenance but it’s starting to slip. Now I understand her role as Trump’s right hand. She’s just as ruthless and unscrupulous as he is. She’s just got better taste in clothes.
It’s not that we hate them. It’s that they are fundamentally bad for the country. They’re a mistake, a fluke. We’re not trying to interfere with Trump’s agenda. It’s worse than that because he never had an agenda. He has no idea how to run a government like ours. It’s a HUGE responsibility. We are a superpower. We have an obligation due to our military strength and economy to not f#%* up. Trump doesn’t care about that. He’s running the country like the Corleones would.
I’m sorry, did any of us agree to that??
That’s what this Stormy Daniels thing is all about. She’s uncovering what it’s like to be a small, insignificant person under Trump’s thumb.
Imagine what it must be like for Qatar, Puerto Rico or Lithuania.
Have a smoke and ponder that post-coital thought, Trump voters. You guys wanted to have sex with him but the rest of us were forced.
We’ll have to put her on suicide watch when Trump is reelected.
