Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump (aka David Dennison)

2/3 of Americans couldn't pick Paul Ryan out from a lineup. Most of those who could think he's a responsible figure.

But, while normal politics and policy does not penetrate the culture, people understand illegitimate kids and playing hus money to porn stars.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump (aka David Dennison)

lol at thinking paying hush money for an illegitimate child would stick to Trump. Evangelicals will be all "family man Donald Trump supports his children. All his children, what a great guy. Why he gave this lady 250k a year to help support their child. Good!"

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump (aka David Dennison)

I'm not seeing the significance of a story about a rumor that Trump had an illegitimate kid, unless maybe the Enquirerer broke campaign finance law by using catch and kill, and possibly coordinated with Cohen. Of course it's a big deal if it's true. And a huge deal if the kid's name is covfefe.

Because if they don't they'll get accused of 'bias'.

The sickest part of all is that they might really get away with it.
Even portraying Trump a some "criminal" is downplaying him a helluva lot.

Because he doesn't just obstruct justice, he obstructs justice dozens of times.

He doesn't just tamper with one witness, he tampers with 10 of them.

He doesn't just violate one emolument...

He doesn't just campaign-pay one porn star...

Launder one money...

Grab one pussy...

Etc etc.

Ironically, it only became a story when the Enquirer paid $30k to (not) run it, because it raises the obvious question of, "Why paid $30k for an unsubstantiated rumor?"

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump (aka David Dennison)

Most interesting aspect imo is the fact that The Enquirer paid for the story in order to keep it buried. I've said it before, the entertainment media industry is fully complicit is foisting Trump on us.

The Enquirer's a special case since he's bros with the owners.

It would kind of be an interesting question to lob at Pence, just to see if/how he fields it.

He's bros with lots of people in the industry, that's the point. Everyone knew he was a horrible piece of **** but they still made him into a goofy TV celebrity and gave him a show and palled around with him behind the scenes at Access Hollywood.

The significance isn't about the child or the affair, but rather the payout to bury the story that could be just another violation of federal election law.

Put another way: It's not the crime, it's the cover up.

But of course you knew that already.

I disagree. If this were true, Trump would have fired Mueller last year. Trump is the useful idiot they will keep around until he's no longer needed.

Isn't there a theory out there that they can't dump him until after November, after which Pence would be able to run in 2020 and for re-election in 2024?

(hopefully thats a mute fantasy, but if you are a deplo-R-able it makes sense).
