This came in from SC Democrats over the weekend:
Columbia, SC — Over the last several days, the Wall Street Journal revealed that President Trump’s lawyer used a Delaware corporation to pay hush money to pornstar Stormy Daniels weeks before the 2016 election to keep her from revealing an affair she had with the president while he was married to his third wife, First Lady Melania Trump. This weekend, Stormy Daniels will be visiting Greenville for a public appearance in which she will certainly talk about the president.“Henry McMaster and Catherine Templeton have gone above and beyond to associate themselves with everything related to President Trump,” said South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson. “From what we know about the president, Stormy is bound to be his fourth wife and I can’t believe that Henry and Catherine would miss the opportunity to seek her endorsement. It’s the perfect time for them to talk about their South Carolina values as she kicks off what she is calling her ‘Make America Horny Again’ tour in Greenville.”###
Yes, the thing about the porn star is a part of the general pattern of sleaze (along with the “Access Hollywood” tape, the multiple allegations of sexual assault, the behavior running beauty pageants, the casinos, professional wrestling and reality TV) of the most unfit man ever to hold our highest office.
And yes, wrapping yourself in the Trump mantle means wrapping yourself in sleaze. It’s a legitimate point, as far as it goes.
But this effort to be cute kind of misses the mark. Perhaps it’s the “Stormy is bound to be his fourth wife” part that throws it off….
By the way… it seems that any time a “porn star” pops up in the news, they look really fake: the makeup, the big, blonde hair, the apparently modified body parts.
It’s all kind of off-putting.
Why, in MY day, we had universally appealing, wholesome, girl-next-door pornography.
Give us somebody like Bettie Page!
OK, just kidding. I’m not that old. Bettie was sort of before my time.
And she was more of the cheesecake school rather that full-scale porn — although she did get a bit kinky in some of those pictures.
But she’s a name I could think of and she makes my point: Real is more sexy than the blow-up doll look…
although she did get a bit kinky in some of those pictures
I wouldn’t know.
In Trav’s defense, the state party DOES put out more substantive nuts-and-bolts releases, such as this one this morning:
Do you really expect anyone to read all that?
Nope. I didn’t….
Am I the only one that thinks “Stormy Daniels” sounds like a drink?
Go ahead, pour some ginger beer in your whiskey. Let us know.
But anyway, wasn’t it only a few years ago that being discovered with a mistress was a political death sentence? Ah, the fine old days. I miss a little sense of decorum…
The standard was, being caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.
That was 1983. Already by that time, you could survive having a LIVE girl in your bed…
Those “few years ago” must have been pre-Bill Clinton. It didn’t seem to exactly kill his political career. In fact, you could come up with all kinds of unique defenses like “Define ‘is’ “.
I’m curious how a germophobe like Trump would pick up a porn star. That’s like a being afraid of heights and taking up skydiving.
This stuff matters little, and Trav knows that. He just needs to resist the urge to get caught up in the superficial buzz.
