The President, the Porn Star, the News Media and the Electorate

Did the president have a brief affair with a porn star in 2006?  I’m sure no one would be surprised to discover that he did.  Will 60 Minutes run an interview with Stormy Daniels?  If so what can it possibly tell us that we don’t already know?  Daniels is a whore who sees herself as a “star” and wants to publicize her experience with Trump to polish that star and increase her income.

No, she doesn’t turn tricks for money.  The definition of a whore is someone who engages in sex for money. Daniels has explicit sex in front of the cameras for money.  That makes her a super whore.  Furthermore, she directs others who do the same, not exactly a candidate for sainthood.  

If we stoop to watching that interview, if and when it airs, we are guilty of voyeurism.  What does that make 60 Minutes?  Little more than entertainment appealing to our most basic prurient interests.

We knew that Donald Trump was no choir boy when we elected him.  When it came time to cast our ballot for president, it came down to a simple choice:  Do we elect a man who is often coarse, impulsive and had not learned —nor did he care to learn— the art of  polished, political doublespeak or do we elect a woman who was often just as coarse in private but had her sins covered up by those around her and an adoring, obsequious media.  Furthermore, Trump’s sins were committed as a private citizen.  Hillary’s sins were committed while she and her husband held political office.  In short, Trump cheated on his wives.  Hillary cheated on her country.

Like many Americans I was not pleased with the choice we faced.  Surely in this great country of ours, there are many honorable men and women capable of leading our nation who haven’t committed such grave sins, but none survived in this strange political climate.

Sadly, the American people aren’t impressed by character anymore.  We are impressed by looks, celebrity or the strength of one’s personality.  We are too busy watching sitcoms or sports to be bothered with examining the records of the candidates for ourselves.  We vote on who has the best or most convincing television commercials that run in between our favorite telecasts and, afterward, we retreat to our respective corners and dig in to justify our choices.

I reluctantly voted for Donald Trump.  In my mind if you cheat on your country — and in Hillary’s case she did it again and again —  you don’t get a another opportunity.

I fully expected Mr. Trump to go back on his promises, once elected, and simply use his office to fuel his enormous ego.  To be sure, he still has a problem controlling that ego, but in every other way, I have been pleasantly surprised, in fact, amazed.  For all his faults and rough edges, Trump has done more to rein in the behemoth out-of-control bureaucracy and drain the political swamp than any other president in my lifetime, even angering members of his own party when necessary.

It’s as if somewhere along the campaign trail, Trump truly grasped the enormity of the task of giving the people of this country a fighting chance against the career politicians of both political parties who have been selling us down the river for far too long.

I am not ashamed to admit I was wrong about Trump and I am willing to give him credit for those accomplishments that are too numerous to mention here.  I can only pray that others will do the same.  Do I agree with everything he’s done?  No, and that is aways the case with anyone in elected office. Yes, I still wish he would use Twitter less and choose his words more carefully, but we don’t have a perfect man in the White House, nor will there ever be.

I sincerely hope that CBS does not degrade 60 Minutes by running the Daniels’ interview.  According to Daniels’ own account, NBC would not put a “porn star” on the Apprentice, even at Trump’s urging, so why would 60 Minutes give her a forum on its premier news magazine?

Should it run, it will not hurt the president.  That supposedly happened 12 years ago.  Those who back his policies will continue to back him and those who hate him likely will continue to do so.  It will, however, hurt the first lady, who seems like a decent, caring individual.  No doubt she has had to come to terms with her husband’s alleged indiscretion.  It will also hurt his children and to what end?

  1. Jane,
    Wow or should I say “Amen”.
    You hit the nail on the head. I have heard (and believe) that Trump has put his faith in Christ.
    If so, he was at that instant “born again” and became a “new creature” in Christ.
    As such, he is gradually changing his previous life style.
    We will LOVE the continually changing President.
    Now we can fully enjoy the great decision making and know that the rest is comimg along.

    1. Yes, I’ve noticed that these affairs mostly happened quite some time ago. It’s as if there was some sort of change several years ago, and it could be something like that.

  2. The Stormy Daniels nonsense is but another pathetic attempt by the left to undermine Trump’s Presidency. The woman is not credible and the affair, if it happened at all, is irrelevant. I’m still waiting for our TIC (Tweeter in Chief) to follow talk with action and drain the swamp, beginning with the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and State Department and do a real investigation of the DNC and the Hillary Clinton. He’s had a year and we’re still waiting.f

  3. William Stoecker’s first two sentences sum up this latest “news” perfectly. This latest hit by the left and its media outlets shows how sick and pathetic they really are. I also endorse Frank Wilson’s comments about “born again” and becoming a new creature in Christ. That may be the promising direction President Trump has embarked on. Speaking from experience, when I was born again at age 47-48, a gradual transition, I became a different person and even felt like I should change my name because I wasn’t that person any longer. During our lifetime we go through many changes. These changes, when looked upon in retrospect, seem to have a hidden director, or a pre-determined plan.
    For example, using a generalized person, no one in particular, something that happened earlier resulted in a surprising new direction or occurrence, and another disappointment or seemingly unfortunate incident resulted in circumstances that seem to have been directed, re-positioning a person into a better or more important position later. There often seems to be a reason for things that happen. Maybe this Stormy “news” will move some people to see the dirty politics and subversive tactics of the left and encourage them to more solidly endorse our President.

  4. Good grief, why not just say that as a Christian it’s appalling to you, as it normally would be, that he had an affair, and with a porn star, whom he probably paid, then paid to keep quiet? Instead, you drag Hillary into it, gripe about news coverage and praise Trump. You’re giving him a pass because you like him — just say it.

  5. And then the usually sanctimonious Frank and Warren join in with their own pathetic excuses. Frank “has heard” that Trump has put his faith in Christ. What a laugh.
