    Default Trump Lawyer Arranged $130,000 Payment for Adult-Film Star's Silence

    Okay I know I'm way past my thread limit for the day but .............. How could I not post this one?


    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...t5R&ocid=ientp




    A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.
    Michael Cohen, who spent nearly a decade as a top attorney at the Trump Organization, arranged payment to the woman, Stephanie Clifford, in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with Mr. Cohen, these people said.

    Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, has privately alleged the encounter with Mr. Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, these people said. Mr. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005.

    True. It's hard not to feel a little sorry for Melania.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I haven't seen any pictures post marriage where she's actually smiling. Well, she made her bed now Donald can sleep in the guest room.

    .
    As Sky Blue said in another thread, "Trump never ran as a moral candidate."

    From Wikipedia:

    Stephanie Gregory Clifford (born March 17, 1979), is an American pornographic actress, screenwriter, and director best known by her stage name Stormy Daniels and also known as Stormy Waters and simply Stormy. She is a member of the NightMoves, AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame. In 2009, a recruitment effort led her to consider challenging incumbent David Vitter for the 2010 Senate election in her native Louisiana.

    Early life
    Daniels' parents divorced when she was four. She was subsequently raised by her mother. Daniels has said of her childhood that she "came from an average, lower-income household...there [were] days without electricity".

    Career
    Daniels began stripping at age 17 at a club in Baton Rouge, then expanded to become a feature entertainer with Continental Theatrical Agency in September 2000. She chose her stage name to reflect her love of Mötley Crüe, whose bassist, Nikki Sixx, named his daughter Storm. Since she is from Louisiana, she chose the last name "Daniels" after seeing a Jack Daniel's advertisement that read "a Southern favorite." While working as a feature she met Devon Michaels, who was doing lesbian scenes in a pair of upcoming movies — one for Wicked Pictures and one for Sin City—and invited Daniels to accompany her. Daniels accompanied Michaels to her Wicked shoot, where she met Brad Armstrong and co-starred with Michaels in her Sin City scene, American Girls Part 2. Afterwards, Armstrong invited Daniels to stay with him where she continued doing lesbian-only scenes.

    In July 2002, she was cast as the lead in a feature film for Wicked Pictures called Heat, where she did her first heterosexual sex scene, and, in September of the same year, she signed an exclusive contract with Wicked. In 2004, she won the Best New Starlet Award from Adult Video News, which was a complete surprise to Daniels, as she was so sure Jesse Jane would win she made a $500 bet with another porn starlet. She has directed for Wicked since 2004.

    Daniels was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame on January 18, 2014 and was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame on April 16, 2014. Her directorial work that year earned fourteen AVN Award nominations including a nomination for Best Safe Sex Scene for her performance with Brendon Miller in François Clousot’s First Crush.

    Appearances
    Daniels appeared in an episode of Real Sex where she is seen participating in 2001 Miss Nude Great Plains Contest. In early 2007 she appeared in Dirt on the FX Network, where she played a stripper who helps to set up a basketball player played by Rick Fox. Later in 2007 Daniels appeared in Maroon 5's music video for their song "Wake Up Call" as a pole dancer. She appears in the film The 40-Year-Old Virgin when the main character (Steve Carell) watches her in the video Space Nuts: Episode 69—Unholy Union, and then tries dreaming about her.

    Politics
    A group of fans attempted to recruit Daniels to run against Republican Senator David Vitter in Louisiana in 2010. The recruitment process was centered around the website DraftStormy.com.On May 21, 2009, she formed an exploratory committee. Daniels was unaffiliated with any party until April, 2010 when she declared herself as a Republican. She made several listening tours around Louisiana to focus on the economy, as well as women in business and child protection and stated that if elected, she would likely retire from the adult industry. On July 28, 2009, it was reported that her campaign manager had been targeted by a car bomb attack. She announced on April 15, 2010 that she would not be running for Senate, saying she could not afford a run for the Senate seat and stating that the media never took her candidacy seriously.

    Personal life
    Daniels was born as Stephanie Gregory Clifford in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Daniels has a daughter (born January, 2011) with her then-boyfriend Glendon Crain.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that Daniels and President Donald Trump had a consensual extra-marital sexual affair in 2006, and that Daniels received $130,000 in exchange for signing a non-disclosure agreement in 2016.

    How can we, any of us, truly know about their personal relationship? How are you to know you haven’t just insulted her and her beloved husband?

    My rule is to stay out of people’s personal relationships, for a few reasons:
    I may not know the extent of their relationship, nor it’s nature. Everyone is different, and likes different things.

    Nobody can ever understand another person’s feelings, nor why any of us has them. We do.

    People are individuals, and a person is not automatically associated with their mate’s actions or behaviors.

    Anyway.

    Peace,
    Robert

    I find this story interesting in two respects:

    #1 - It was reported by that bastion of liberal thought and opinion: The Wall Street Journal

    #2 - Trump continues to derive his support in large part from those Americans who self-report as being "Evangelical Christian."

    Beyond the obvious shameless hypocrisy I could not care less about with whom the man has consensual sex. But I am certainly amused by the hypocrisy his behavior elicits.

    I do care about the non-consensual pussy-grabbing. But that is just me. His largely "Evangelical Christian" base evidently has no problems with this type of behavior by their Hero.

    99% of the time, I'd agree with you, but we're talking Trump here, so yeah, eff him. We're going to take shots until he's off his horse because that's how wonderful a human being he is. Just deserts and all that rot.

    I don't understand Melania. I don't judge Melania. I leave Melania alone.

    Unless/until she enters the public arena with political opinions.

    Otherwise I leave her strictly alone. That also goes for the boy.

    The First lady is NOT fair game. Regardless of how Republican right-wingnuts treated Mrs. Obama. Turn-about is not fair play with regard to First Lady's and the minor children.

    Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president's longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign.
    "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."

    It seems that people who identify as Evangelical Christians these days have never seen the 10 commandments or else were brought up by people with no ethics/morals.

    I realize that the only issue is abortion - but just how many abortions do you think Trump has paid for?

    There's a thing afoot called, "economic Christianity," or some such. A business contact was explaining it. Something about the core belief is God chose them to be successful or maybe it was you go and pray for wealth. Some such... but a far cry from what this lapsed Catholic was brought up with.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
