As if President Trump’s Friday wasn’t going badly enough, yet another new scandal from his past has emerged to ruin his day entirely.
People “familiar with the matter” have revealed that Trump’s lawyers paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in order to buy her silence a month before the 2016 election in order to prevent her from publicly discussing an “alleged” sexual encounter between the two, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Of course, the notoriously stingy Trump refused to pay up after Daniels agreed to sign her silence – which is why the story is coming out now.
This encounter allegedly took place at a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe in 2006 – one year after Trump married his third wife Melania Knavs.
“These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” said a White House official in response to the allegations.
This is not the first time the President has been accused of infidelity to his wife.
PEOPLE magazine writer Natasha Stoynoff has accused the President of sexually assaulting her at Mar-a-Lago in December 2005, a few months before the sexual encounter with Stormy Daniels.
The recent explosive book by Michael Wolff, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, alleges that Trump would regularly try to sleep with his friend’s wives,
“Do you still like having sex with your wife? How often? You must have had a better f—k than your wife? Tell me about it. I have girls coming in from Los Angeles at three o’clock. We can go upstairs and have a great time” he would say to his buddies while their wives listened in on speakerphone.
While there’s nothing wrong with performing in pornography or having consensual sexual encounters, Donald Trump ostensibly represents the party of “family values” that insists on forcing people to adhere to their strict moral code while flagrantly violating it themselves at every turn.
Not to mention that the President has been accused by nearly two dozen women of sexual assault and harassment. How evangelicals and so-called religious “Christians” can in good faith support Donald Trump is beyond any comprehension.
