Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said he paid her $130,000 of his own money during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Now why would a lawyer be that generous to someone he doesn't know that well? Lawyers receive other people's money, they don't give away their own.

God knows what sort of diseases Trump is carrying around with him.

Threatened in 2011........lawyer made it sound like it happened last month. And won’t show any evidence because if she even has any, it was supposed to be turned over when she got paid.

-19 ( +7 / -26 )

Catch 22 for Trump: he sues her for violating the alleged NDA and he basically admits to the affair.

He doesn’t sue for the NDA violation, and he encourages other NDA bound women to break theirs.

His lawyer paying cash to her is about all we need anyway

I am just utterly amazed as to why the left is so obsessively obsessed with what the President did over 12 years ago. Granted, not a good thing to do to your wife, if anything, it could ruin his marriage airing out this junk and if that is the medias objective then good luck, but as far as making waves as a politician and sleeping with a porn star, No one really cares....except maybe CNN, God knows they need a serious ratings boost.

'That’s a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.'

And there you have it. This is the kind of intimidation carried out on behalf of the great deal maker.

I am just utterly amazed as to why the left is so obsessively obsessed with what the President did over 12 years ago. 

As usual, it's not the Incident itself, it's the coverup. Trump has clearly lied repeatedly in denying the affair, which will alienate those who demand at least a scintilla of honesty in a president. And then there are the bad optics o the most powerful man in the world and his flunkies ganging up on a woman. But of a more pressing legal nature is the question of the hush money. Did Cohen really pay it?- if so, he's likely broken campaign finance laws and could be disbarred. Was he reimbursed by Trump? - a candidate can spend unlimited amounts on his own election, but it would be another lie, facing Cohen again with disbarment. And what about the $20 million Trump is suing Daniels for? And the other women who have levied similar accusations against Trump?

That interview is just the beginning of the story. Things will get interesting now.

I have no interest in watching this media feeding frenzy. I've already made up my mind on the matter. Come on, who are we supposed to believe; a bleached blond with big, droopy breasts, or Stormy Daniels?

It says a lot about a president when you believe a porn star more. It says even more about the people who voted for him.

In many States paying for sex is illegal and Trump lied to save his face.

Old Stormy is far from the dumb bimbo she's being painted as by the Trump camp and their chums in the media:

Thugs in car parks, bent lawyers, pay offs, corruption, sleazy sex: Trump really is draining the swamp here all right.

And there you have it. This is the kind of intimidation carried out on behalf of the great deal maker.

Don't go there, there are other examples of threats happening to people with other Presidents in office. This is not a unique or isolated case.

I have no interest in watching this media feeding frenzy. I've already made up my mind on the matter. Come on, who are we supposed to believe; a bleached blond with big, droopy breasts, or Stormy Daniels?

I agree with you as well (amazingly) I too, have made up my mind, I do believe these women, however, it happened while he was in office, so how other than giving him personal heartburn at home with his family would this hurt his Presidency? The left is beyond desperate. I feel bad for his wife, it was a bad move, no one should do something like that to their spouse, but that's a private matter for him and his family to sort out, but for the lib networks to desperately try to find something to talk about of non-importance speaks volumes of how low and desperate these media outlets have become.

Oh, come on. You know the media loves sleazy stories like this - left or right. It’s against Trump so you call it desperate.

This story does seem to have some substance and fact. Trump tweeted about sex tapes that don’t exist to attack people, called his opponents children of people involved in the JFK assassination and jumped on the crackpot birtherism bus.

Compared to the insane nonsense and rancid trash he’s been involved in, this is decent in comparison.

Don’t all politicians lie?

Nothing new here, is there?

Stormy is looking to make a mint on the book, film rights, interviews, wind-up toys etc.

However, first is the CNN free interview -how generous!

A free interview about a 12- year-ago-affair with Prez Trump-she certainly has taken her time....

A, as in ONE bad move? This is obviously not an isolated incident.

I personally couldn't care about Trump's personal sex life as long as there are consenting adults involved and they are willing to accept the normal consequences of their decision, to include being found out.

So, the sex is not an issue for me, but it may be an issue for religious women or men and some conservatives.

Trump's unwillingness to live with his decisions is a problem that creates a need for NDAs, intimidation, payoffs and lies. It could also create national security risks....

Politically, women voters are becoming a real problem for Trump, and this story is really hurting him and the GoP. Approval ratings with women are only at 23%, and Trump's actions (including denials, and legal and physical intimidation) isn't going to help improve that situation.

Bass: I feel bad for his wife, it was a bad move, no one should do something like that to their spouse.

Yes and yes.

So what's your point? Truth or not If people especially the left enjoy gobbling these stupid gossip stories up as if they were written by the National Enquirer itself, then so be it. I could think of doing something more productive with my time like...making more money.

Compared to the insane nonsense and rancid trash he’s been involved in, this is decent in comparison.

Ahhh, that so called trash is insignificant compared to the trash of other Presidents.

Politically, women voters are becoming a real problem for Trump, and this story is really hurting him and the GoP. Approval ratings with women are only at 23%, and Trump's actions (including denials, and legal and physical intimidation) isn't going to help improve that situation.

Yeah, the left made that case in 2016 with the grabbing women by the meow and other stories of abysmal behavior allegedly towards women and it didn't scare him even during the debates. The left have a lot to do to try and get women, especially now with these tax cuts to take a chance on losing all that money to vote this man out and take a chance on.....what? Go luck liberals. You got your work cut out.

A few weeks ago you said it was awesome that he slept with her because she was so hot. You must have bumped your head and lost your memory again.

She is...sorta, so good for him, would I personally do what he did, No. Having said that, if he did have sex with her, the guy was lucky.

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

Truth or not If people especially the left enjoy gobbling these stupid gossip stories up as if they were written by the National Enquirer itself

I think the story of Ted Cruz’s father being involved in the JFK assassination did come from the National Enquirer itself. Trump evidently thought it was great. The non-existent sex tape was a Trump original as far as I know.

This isn’t ‘so called’ trash. It’s rancid trash. Trump supporters complaining about a sleazy sex story used to attack Trump’s character is comical. Nobody has done more to trash Trump than Trump. This is part of his success - whenever a barrage of trash hits, many of his honest supporters just shrug with a “yeah, that’s what he is. We know we elected a lout but let’s see how much he delivers what we want”.

Those who try to defend the man and his behaviour are not being serious.

Frankly, as with former Pres. Clinton, I'm more interested in the president's performance than who they're having sex with. The main event of this circus is whether or not Trump was in cahoots with the Russians. The sexual affairs, recent firings of White House officials, etc., are just sideshows.

Still, imagine how the Republican sharks would've been circling Clinton right now if he were in Trump's shoes right now as a sitting president concerning all of these sexual affairs and other accusations of sexual assault.

For a bloke who bragged that he could get any women, grabbed them by the p***y etc, it seems Trump often ended up paying/sleeping with strippers & porn actresses. Just sayin', Donald! More Casanova wannabe than NY elite Don Juan.

The most enjoyable part of the 'DT love-life revelations' is the fact that holier-than-though church-goers who voted for Trump thinking they had found their new moral/ethical leader have finally realised they too got Trumped!

Damn the torpedoes. Just had to disparage the porn star and not the sleaze, Mr. Burns. I'm sure the porn star was trying to further her career in one of the only ways she knew how. How else could she be around Trump?

It is just another example of a powerful man using women, and a woman whose path to power was sex.

How about Karen McDougal? She came across as high-class, certainly higher class than Trump. Trump treated her as of she was a high-class hooker. . . not to mention how he treated his own wife.

then remind them, they should have busted their rear instead on focusing on stuff that is totally irrelevant in life. 

Irrelevant stuff like women and movies? You are buying into the whole BS pull yourself up by your bootstraps argument and dismissing the current economic reality.

I too favor a meritocracy over unchecked welfare, but what is happening now is an increasing shift towards a plutocracy supported by simple-minded nationalistic ideals, MAGA.

That would be pretty much any porn star truth be told.

Gee, this has been going on since the beginning of time.

How about Karen McDougal? She came across as high-class, certainly higher class than Trump.

I don't know about that one,

Trump treated her as of she was a high-class hooker. . . not to mention how he treated his own wife.

I'm sorry, but if you think so, the woman knew he was married, she has to brunt as much scorn as Trump does, I don't feel an once of pity for McDougal, she wasn't forced, she loved him, she even voted for him and is a Republican. The only people I feel sorry for is for Barron and Melania. 

Irrelevant stuff like women and movies? You are buying into the whole BS pull yourself up by your bootstraps argument and dismissing the current economic reality.

Worked for every person I knew, even the people that had it rough and decided they wanted a change, so most definitely do I believe it and know it. This is why Democrats will always remain the party of big government, entitlement dependency.

Face it, the largest welfare expenses are aimed at corporations and special interests. Even when the government spends money on food stamps, the money is spent at businesses and used to support farmers. Just like when the U.S. exports aid to foreign countries, conservatives decry about spending money at home, but the reality is the money is spent in the U.S. to purchase the aid.

People are so backwards and they don't even realize it.

I'm convinced of one thing in terms of politics, the government is crooked to the bone. The only difference between one government and another is how crooked they are. The latest government is worse than most and built on obvious lies. There hasn't been a worse government or president since Nixon. At least he wasn't a traitor.

Ask Trump whether Forbes is credible. Even if we agree that Trump's rich, it still doesn't change the alleged part regarding women throwing themselves at him.

The odds of porn stars being frequently tested for STDs and STIs is quite high given it's an industry standard. So unless you have her medical records, you know zero.

The Left shrugged and said it was just about sex and Americans were puritanical and old fashioned over a consensual private matter.

Oh, there's no doubt about the puritanical angle.

Differenc here is Trump was endorsed by the religious right, they believed he was one of theirs. Clever marketing on Trump's part, I must admit.

Also, Trump is a sexual predator, a proven liar and there's been threats and hush money involved.

No, they were my exact thoughts, exactly.

No, they endorsed him because they knew he would fight for religious tolerance unlike the last 8 years Christians were raked over the coals and he put a complete stop to that. Kudos!

BREAKING: STORMY DANIELS OWES TRUMP MILLIONS AFTER 60 MINUTES INTERVIEW

Yeah, Serrano, I love that one: Trump denies having an affair with Daniels, Cohen basically says he paid her the hush money out of his own pocket for no other reason than Trump is his friend and that the president was never aware of it, the NDA used aliases and was unsigned bu Trump - and he expects that to stand up in court.

What's clear is that Trump's resorting to his well-worn routine of upping pressure to force his counterpart to settle. I don't think that's gonna work this time as Daniels and her lawyer match each Trump raise and then raise again. And why not? For Trump to collect a penny, he'd likely have to testify publicly under oath in court (as would Cohen). I'm certainly not alone in really looking forward to that.

Won't happen, though. Trump will fold. Theonly question is how much damage, legally and financially, he's done to himself and Cohen (the latter will probably be disbarred).

Oh my indeed.

Do you think anyone is surprised that a US president had an affair with some one other than his wife? FDR, Kennedy, Clinton, and now Trump. Big deal. That’s between the philanderer and his wife. Didn’t we go over all this 20 years ago?

I found her credible. I have zero doubt that she was threatened just as she claims.

President Trump has a known history of chasing beautiful women. I also expect he has people on the payroll who "fix things" without direct instructions.

We know he acts like a 12 yr old boy.

In my mind, an affair includes romantic get-aways, romantic dinners, romantic "dates". It was sex, once. Everything after that was business even if the President was trying to get laid.

Oh. Boy.

-- That alleged spanking: Who am I to judge what turns a guy on? "You remind me of my daughter."

ohhhhhhh. Yeah, if true, I'm gonna judge: Donald Trump is one weird dude.

-- The not alleged 130k pay-off a certain violation of campaign finance law. Cohen is in deep doo doo, both with the law and with the NY Bar. Enter Mueller:  Mueller loves to nail someone on a slam dunk criminal offense, so as to get them to squeal on their bosses in order to save themselves. --

-- Cohe';s potential to be indicted and to flip just increased exponentially

-- the alleged mob threat is a less an abuse of power (no way to really prove or disprove either way) than a political move: to women who have been pushed around by jerks like Trump their whole lives. Remember, it don't have to be true; it just has to feel true. And this is Trump's brand: Manly man with big hands, grab 'em by the * ahem, for those who like him; bully and predator for those who don't.

-- Big Red Signs that more dirt is coming.

On the whole, half politics and legal mess.

Because this argument,, Trump hasn't created. Insults against Kim.

But I'm not a democrat and when the history of Trump is written it too will include all his seedy bits and the lies too. No escape from his past, he made it.

Yes and both men won't be tarnished by it.

Yeah forgot I was talking to liberals for whom evidence of anything is secondary to the narratives being pushed.

Yeah, forgot I was talking to conservatives for whom the requirements of evidence very. If it is something a liberal did, no need for evidence. If it's something Dumpstwr Fire Donny or another conservative did, all evidence is ignored and more is demanded. Kuddos! My lord. ROFL. Smh.

Trump's cease-and-desist letters used to frighten - now they function as crypto-currency , conferring millions on their recipients.

What evidence!? Liberal evidence or evidence to something that only soap opera watchers care about?

Quite the opposite, a conservative breaks a toe nail (since the media is liberally dominated) it becomes front headline news.

the media is liberally dominated

No it's not. The media is financially dominated. They report on what people want to see, because that's what makes them the money. It's just that way more people lean left than right, so you see way more media that reports on issues that will make them money from left-leaning viewers than you see media reporting on issues that will make them money on right-leaning viewers. If the media truly was liberal-dominated as you say, there would be no Fox News or Breitbart or other right-wing MSM.

And how is the well-researched political leanings to the left for MOST media on topic here?

@bass: Quite the opposite, a conservative breaks a toe nail (since the media is liberally dominated) it becomes front headline news.

Right again Bass. It’s not really an argument at this point. Just look at the coverage Stormy is getting from the major American press outlets compared to Juanita Broderick or more comparably Gennifer Flowers. Night and day the volume of coverage and the political slant based on the party of the president in office. Many other examples from the scandal filled Obama administration that has been inexplicably whitewashed as scandal free.

Are you seriously able to say that with a straight face after dealing with an administration that has a new scandal every few days?

Sorry but porn actresses are not "stars." Same as in the legitimate movie industry, you have the majority who are actresses, and the few who are stars.

You slept with Donald Trump (the private citizen) many many years ago. Get over it. You consented. And accepted hush money.

You broke the NDA. Any plans to return the money? Of course not.

She's been very clear about consenting, and what is it that she needs to get over? She's just putting forth information. I don't see her complaining about the actual incident itself.

Trump was certainly wrong to sleep around and no one should expect a porn actress to be discreet about a sexual encounter. The porn actresses problem is she agreed to take money and signed away her right to speak in public about it in order to keep the encounter private. But in her line of work publicity is money. She risks being sued but obviously sees much bigger long term gain from our modern media culture. She may be right. Or she could be discarded as soon as her political utility has been used up.

I am not sure I even feel sorry for Melania. As with Hillary she knows what kind of man he is and has stayed married to him anyway. Both women seem to stand by their man in order to protect something that they value for themselves from the relationship. Hillary got a shot at becoming president.

A one time consensual sex imcountee between consenting adults is not by definition is not an affair nor is it uncommon for politicians to attempt to prevent pass translations from popping up during their campaigns for public offices. Yesterday’s American News Media since Trump’s election to President has become today’s Smut media. No other politician in modern history has been assualted by the News Media as severely as President Trump,?but you have to handed it to him — he hits back just as hard if no harder.

And if one of the adults is married?

And if one of the adults is married?

That question was settled 20 years ago. If a president fools around on his wife it’s written off as just being about sex. It is no ones business except the first lady. If she decides to stand by her man that’s her decision to make. The Left won that culture battle - time to move on.

Anyway, politically speaking it’s whipping a dead horse. as Trumps full scope of vileness is exposed, those 1 or 2 extra seats in the senate is looking more probably than possible. when that happens Trump is neutured
