Aging porn star Stormy Daniels, former “alleged” lover of President Trump, is seeking to end her non-disclosure agreement. Trump had Daniels sign the agreement after a relationship which “lasted well into 2007” that I’m sure featured the worst sex Stormy has ever experienced.
Then, during the campaign and right before the election, Trump’s lawyer made a personal payment of $130,000 to her. Yet, our stable genius professes he has had nothing to do with Daniels, but that may come back to bite him in the ass.
Daniels claims that Trump never actually signed the agreement, and that it was invalid. This claim panicked the Trump team so badly, they took Daniels to court in February 2018 with a “bogus arbitration claim”.
Stormy Daniels is problematic for Trump. She represents his most sleazy, “grab her by the pussy” attitude. Most of the sexual assault allegations leveled against Trump before the election have faded, even in the face of the #MeToo movement, but could the sordid details of a relationship with Trump help bring down his presidency?
The only thing Donald Trump really has left going for him, like many other dictators, is his cult of personality. His supporters think he’s an infallible, smart, masculine man.
Hearing the nitty-gritty of his time with a B-List porn star could shatter some illusions. Shoot, maybe Trump likes wearing a diaper and being fed applesauce.
Or perhaps, Daniels’ disclosure could boost Trump’s image. After all, his base isn’t exactly known for their morals. Some Republicans may use this as an example of Trump’s charisma and virility.
If the agreement is made null and void, we have to be careful to craft an accurate picture of how badly behaved our President really is. Trump has a wife and kids, and now a nation to lead. This behavior is not becoming of a President, it’s more like an Apprentice.
