Regardless of what side of the political line you may fall on, there’s one thing we can all agree on if we’re being completely honest with ourselves. The United States has sunken to a new low under the leadership of Donald J. Trump. Let me tell you why I say this. At any other time in American history, and under any other President Of The United States, the president having an affair and attempting to bribe her with some hush money would be some presidency ending type of shit. Remember Bill Clinton? Bill Clinton was accused of receiving a blow-job from an intern in the White House. People lost their damn minds. I was alive at the time. I can still remember the headlines in the newspapers. Everyone acted like the world was coming to an end. That was pretty much a normal reaction for a presidential-scandal of that type. That reaction, multiplied by about fifty, is what you would expect from people and the press for a story of the president of The United States having an affair on his wife (during the time shortly after the birth of the couples’ son) with a porn star. Not only that, but the president allowed himself to basically be blackmailed into paying hush money…..by a porn star. The president of the United States allowed himself to be blackmailed because he didn’t want news of his affair with a porn star to go public. Simple shit…..at least in the big picture of things. Can you imagine how far this president of the United States would go to keep something a little bigger than an affair from going public? Something like a crime that may put him behind bars for years? Like money laundering?
Donald Trump has done so many unethical and probably illegal things since the time he has become president of the United States, that something like his affair with a porn star may not even make the “top stories” list on some news stations and newspapers. His supporters will brush it off as “not a big deal” or they’ll go to one of the ol’ favorite hits from the campaign trail “fake news.” One man has managed to drag an entire Country down so far that a man who is the representative of the entire Country is not held accountable for any sense of morality. This is the same Country that raised hell when former first lady Michele Obama had the audacity to wear a sleeveless shirt. When former president Barack Obama had the audacity to wear a tan suit. This is the same Country that wanted to hang Bill Clinton for cheating on his wife. What the fu*k happened to America? It’s simple. Donald Trump happened. Donald Trump has dragged America down so far that having an affair with a porn star is now just barely news- worthy. The president of the united States is no longer upheld as an example of how “good people” should carry themselves. The president of the United States is now held less accountable for his own actions than the CEO of a company. This is the United States we now live in.
NBC News (@nbcnews) reports, adult film star Stormy Daniels sued Donald Trump on Tuesday, alleging that he never signed a nondisclosure agreement that his lawyer had arranged with her. The civil suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by NBC News, alleges that her agreement not to disclose her “intimate” relationship with Trump is invalid because, while both Daniels and Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen signed it, Trump himself, never did. Daniels signed both the agreement and a side letter agreement using her professional name on October 28, 2016, just days before the 2016 presidential election. Cohen signed the document the same day. Both agreements are appended to the lawsuit as Exhibit 1 and Exhibit 2.
The “hush agreement” as it’s called in the lawsuit, refers to trump throughout as David Dennison, and Stormy Daniels as Peggy Peterson. In the side letter agreement, the true identity of “DD” is blacked out, but Clifford’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, says that individual is Donald Trump. Each document includes a blank where “DD” is supposed to sign, but neither blank is signed. According to the lawsuit, Clifford and Trump had an intimate relationship that lasted form summer 2006 “well into the year 2007.” The relationship allegedly included meetings in Lake Tahoe and at the Beverly hills Hotel.
The 2016 “hush” agreement directed that $130,000 be paid into the trust account of Clifford’s then attorney. In return, Clifford was not to disclose any confidential information about Trump or his sexual partners to anyone beyond a short list of individuals she had already told about the relationship. Or share any texts or photos from Trump. The suit also alleges that Cohen has tried to keep Stormy Daniels from talking about the relationship as recently as Feb. 27th of this year.
