Russia collusion traded in for fading adult star? Is this the end of Donald Trump?
WASHINGTON, March 28, 2018: So, what have we learned from the Stormy Daniels brouhaha? The media is slowly backing away from their fake Russia collusion narrative. Their latest #NeverTrump#Resistance pitch is that allegedly, back in the day when Trump was 60 and a private citizen, he had consensual sex with a buxom adult star who was 27-years-of-age.
True or not, as a result, this alleged, titillating tidbit ignited a rapidly-trending social-media frenzy among America’s red-blooded, heterosexual males. They signaled their approval using a purloined hashtag: #MeToo.
From pimping Hillary Clinton to pimping Stormy Daniels
The mainstream media wants us to believe billionaire playboys should be more like comic book hero Bruce Wayne of Batman fame. In other words, they should be out saving Gotham from a legion of evil, over-the-top villains.
It’s too bad that, like most of today’s mainstream media “reporters,” Donald Trump is also a product of the hedonistic 1960s sexual revolution era. He’s less Saint Hugh of Champagne and more Hugh Hefner of Playboy. Everybody knows this. On the other hand, that hasn’t prevented the Trump-hating media to jump the shark yet again, this time pimping for an aging adult star who’s looking for a nice income stream to replace the one she’s aging out of.
Yet it’s abundantly clear that CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes” producers feared Stormy Daniels’ still considerable charms might prove too distracting for their roster of formidable male inquisitors. And so, to deal with this too-hot-to-handle exhibit, they chose openly gay correspondent Anderson Cooper to question the smut star during the show’s most recent Sunday broadcast.
Journalism joins the “oldest profession”
Cooper was clearly uneasy asking Stormy to reveal those intimate bedroom details. But it’s clear his discomfort stemmed more from the fact his CBS employers reduced his already declining journalistic career to that of a bejeweled pimp in the service of a gold digger’s desperate need for cash.
Here’s the salient portion of Cooper’s “hard-hitting” interview.
“Were you physically attracted to him [Trump]?… Did you want to have sex with him?” asked Cooper.
“No,” replied Daniels, “but I didn’t say no. I’m not a victim.”
“It was entirely consensual?” asked a perplexed Cooper.
“Oh, yes. Yes,” said the aging adult star. (Emphasis added)
And with that, Anderson Cooper finished channeling Jerry Springer, that legendary host of the relentlessly tasteless, sensational and very popular “Jerry Springer Show.”
Springer once told an interviewer the formula to his show’s success,
“First, it’s stupid.”
After everything is said and done, what does all this tell us? The stupid Trump/Russia collusion story isn’t quite panning out for our friends in the media. So now they need to find another stupid fake news story to replace the first one.
Pimping Putin Russia collusion conspiracy theories defined down to pimping adult stars
So now, instead of Trump and Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, it turns out President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and the FISA court used the Russian-influenced Steele dossier in real life to run a counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign.
Rather than facing the fact that Trump was elected to the presidency legitimately, the media merely adapted their anti-Trump approach by substituting a different fake new meme. Instead of Russia collusion, they’d highlight the allegedly true yarn of a needy, washed-up adult star. Then, they’d use it to interfere with, and perhaps inspire the end of the Trump presidency.
With Russian collusion yarn no longer believed even by many anti-Trump true believers, it seems Democrats themselves have also decided to move on from pimping those evidence-free, Putin-inspired conspiracy theories. Now, they’s pimping on behalf of that fading adult star, happy to aid in her attempted comeback. They’ll keep this story alive just as long as it holds promise for evicting President Trump from The Swamp he’s trying to clean out. Just like they all did with the Russia collusion fable.
And who knows? Jerry Springer, the former Democratic mayor of Cincinnati, may be thinking of a comeback of his own by throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
“First, it’s stupid” will make a fine campaign slogan.
