    Is The Stormy Story More Damaging Than We Thought?

    Source: TPM

    We just finished recording this week’s episode of The Josh Marshall Podcast. We had a special guest, Joan Walsh. We talked about the Stormy Daniels’ story among other topics, including the 2016 election. But I wanted to flag one point we discussed in this episode that I’ve learned over recent days. What Daniels told 60 Minutes is more damaging than people may realize.

    In many ways, having sex with a porn star is on-brand for Donald Trump. He spent decades playing up a reputation as a billionaire playboy. These stories seem to have stirred discord in Trump’s marriage. They’re hard to square with his current role as the darling of conservative evangelicals. But they play to the tough guy, dominant and hyper-masculine image he likes to portray. He’s boasted for years about his purported sexual prowess and the Access Hollywood tape and the subsequent string of accusations of various kinds of sexual misconduct confirmed his role as a sexual predator.

    But Daniels apparently says something different. I’m told that in her 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper Daniels suggests that Trump, how to say this, likes it when women aren’t nice to him, treat him in perhaps denigrating ways.

    I think that would be very much off brand for Trump. It also puts in sharper relief why he and his lawyer seem to be fighting so hard to keep Daniels’ story under wraps. It also deepens my curiosity about whether CBS will have to stomach to air that part of the story.

    No, idiots. It just stinks like one more liberal lie. When one thing doesn't work liberals just up the anti and claim something worse. If claiming an extra marital affair doesn't work then claim sexual abuse. If that doesn't work claim sexual abuse/rape of a minor. If that doesn't work claim an affair or whatever with a sex worker. If that doesn't work then claim BDSM or some variant.

    At this point liberals have lied so many times about things that you cannot believe anything they say. And given all the hypocrisy they have with the Clinton's, I quit caring some time ago about sexuality issues with politicians.

    Liberals don't care either, except they think they can peel away the approval/vote of Evangelical Christians, and they HATE it that it hasn't worked out that way. Almost every day there is a thread about how Evangelical Christians should reject Trump and hatred because they haven't.

    Anyway the Con turns he implicates himself. It is delish!
    And that is exactly why I don't believe anything they claim about President Trump or other Republicans.

    4. So, its grosser than being spanked with pics of his children?

    Maybe he does like to be peed on, after all? Think I’ll go spread that rumor now.

    6. Three reasons I think it is more dangerous for him than some previous.

    1. Her "reputation" is something he cannot really besmirch, so bullying her out of the way is impossible

    2. This was not a quick grope. It was ongoing with huge potential for damaging evidence to emerge.

    3. Gives far greater credence to the Steele Dossier in peoples' minds.
    Her "reputation" is only one reason not to believe anything she says. And frankly I don't care if it is true or not. Liberals have lowered the bar so much that it doesn't change my support of President Trump.

    this stormy daniels story might have more of an impact if the left hadn't defended bill clinton's behavior with women ad nauseum as well as constantly lecturing us about how it is none of our business about what happens between 2 consenting adults.

    More and more I am coming to the belief that this is one big trolling job devised between Trump, his lawyer and Stormy. They get Stormy to lead the press along with a "scandal" that is actually fake. She gets free publicity on main steam programs and Trump gets the press to embarrass themselves again by promoting fake news.

    A big nothing to me simply because it's the media pushing it above important things and using it as a weapon to smear Trump. At times like this you just have to believe what you want and laugh it off. No one cares about this whore but the media and it kinda reminds me of Two and a Half Men the one episode where Allen goes over to Candy's place and knocks on the door thinking he was going to take his dog, he finds the same ambulance chaser there screwing her which was Judith's divorce lawyer. For some reason this is the visual in my head when they mentioned that whores lawyer, a little short bald guy wearing sock suspenders and a house robe.

    The President's peccadilloes were poll tested on November 8th 2016. Nobody really cared. Lefties and NeverTrumpers continued to hate him. His supporters continued to love him. Everyone else mostly decided he was better than Hillary. The Stormy controversy has a salacious appeal and will stay in the news for a few more days. Sex sells. Lefties and NeverTrumpers will still hate him. His supporters will still love him. Everyone else will get back to their March Madness betting pools.

    We have a new and improved Teflon Don and his enemies can't stand it.
