VIDEO: Trump Asked About Paying Off Daniels, Here’s What He Had to Say

Published

President Trump recently sat down with Ainsley Earhardt for an interview on “Fox & Friends” where he spoke out about the controversy surrounding a “hush money” payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels and to former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

The president noted that the payments came from him and not from the funds he raised for his presidential campaign.

Asked if he knew about the payments from Cohen to the women alleging past sexual affairs with him, Trump told Earhardt, “Later on I knew.”

“They weren’t taken out of campaign finance, that’s a big thing,” he said of the payments. “That’s a much bigger thing. Did they come out of the campaign? They didn’t come out of the campaign. They came from me — and I tweeted about it.”

n May, Trump issued a series of tweets on the Daniels’ NDA payment, in which he stressed, “Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll in this transaction”:

Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. These agreements are very common among celebrities and people of wealth. In this case it is in full force and effect and will be used in Arbitration for damages against Ms. Clifford (Daniels). The agreement was used to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair, despite already having signed a detailed letter admitting that there was no affair. Prior to its violation by Ms. Clifford and her attorney, this was a private agreement. Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll in this transaction.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Hershowitz agrees. “The president is entitled to pay hush money to anyone he wants during a campaign,” he told MSNBC Wednesday. “There are no restrictions on what a candidate can contribute to his own campaign. So if, in fact, the president directed Cohen to do it as his lawyer and was going to compensate him for it, the president committed no crime. If Cohen did it on his own then Cohen commits the crime.”

This kind of snafu is precisely why Vice President Pence is an absolute genius for abiding by his rule of never, ever being alone with a woman other than his wife. He will never have to worry about such scandals following him around like shadows for the rest of his political career.

It seems clear that Trump’s association with these less than stellar characters is something that is coming back to haunt him, whether right, wrong, or indifferent.

Hopefully all of the facts will come out surrounding this issue and the whole thing can be put to bed.

It’s a wise rule, despite what you might hear from rabid feminists.

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

on

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

on

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
