The Stormy Daniels interview

March 26, 2018

Early Sunday evening, I thought I heard a wet plopping sound coming from my TV. Turns out it was just “60 Minutes’” reputation for journalistic integrity taking a nosedive into a giant pit of mud. I give Anderson Cooper props for at least looking somewhat embarrassed for being expected to ask probing questions about intimate details of an unsubstantiated story about an alleged, decade-old, sexual one-night stand from a porn star with a history of signing false statements, changing her story and taking money to shut up and go away.

The show struggled mightily to find a justification for this being treated as “news.” Liberals hoping for accusations against President Trump of an ongoing abusive sexual relationship were disappointed when the woman in question denied being a “Me Too” victim or spending more than one night with Trump eleven years ago or doing anything non-consensual. The excuses for airing this sleaze hinged on an unsubstantiated claim of a threat by an unknown person in a parking lot and the suggestion that Trump’s lawyer’s payment to make a nuisance go away might violate federal campaign finance laws.

Do liberals really want to start demanding criminal investigations of candidates’ lawyers' books, looking for campaign funding violations? Because there are still questions about that $10 million or so to Fusion GPS for the Trump "Russian dossier" that Hillary Clinton’s campaign reportedly hid by funneling it through her lawyer's firm instead of reporting it to the FEC as opposition research spending, as required by federal law. Maybe “60 Minutes” would like to hose some of the slime off its journalistic reputation by covering that next week.

You can watch the entire interview at the link, if you have literally nothing better to do with your time.

    I watched this interview and was amazed at the questions that were asked by the interviewer, guess I shouldn't have been. What difference did it make if protection was used? I believe that this woman does not have a lot of credibility, the profession she is in is not the most upstanding one, and why did she wait to bring this out is it the million dollars she said she didn't get that struck me as being a little revealing.

    This woman is currently on a stripping tour called, "Make America Horny Again." Although I did not watch the interview (or the tour) I now expect 60 minutes to "interview" more people with something to sell. Maybe we will see hopeful authors on book tours displayed and interviewed as investigative journalism.

    AC was probably hoping for some pointers on how to make his husband happy.

    Twitter was on fire about Stormy's dilated pupils that made them feel she was on drugs or something! They look really abnormal, but what do I know I didn't watch. I just noticed the picture on your post!

    60 Minutes has lost what little, and I mean little, credibility it had left. People are roaring with laughter at Anderson Cooper; his interview was cheap and tawdry like junk jewelry. WOW, he interviews porn stars; now that's what credible journalists aspire to do. Stormy did say she was really happy because all this attention was getting her more work; so when does Stormy officially join the 60 Minutes team and her news segments begin? I bet she'll feel right at home with all her new 60 Minutes friends and colleagues.

    Funny?? I can't recall the media interviewing Marilyn Monroe about her affair with JFK or Monica Lewinsky about her Oval Office tryst with Bill Clinton. Wonder why I can't remember those interviews?

    First off full disclosure, I voted for our President. I support our President. I am alittle embarrassed to admit I watched the 6o Minutes interview. I thought I was kind of a nothing burger. They hyped it as a long standing affair. First, if what she said is true- This is between Trump and his beautiful , intelligent , classy wife. This happened before he was elected President. None of us were under the impression he was a choir boy. We did vote for him to improve our country. He has done that . What I did find offensive was HC saying "married white women only voted for Trump, because of pressure from the men in our lives" So ridiculous. Now that is offensive.

    This nonsense about President Trump having an affair with porn star just shows how dispirit the lift has come to try and get Mr. Trump out of office! Stormy Daniels lives and works in an industry that is no better than Sodom and Gomorrah, they believe in any kind of sex act is okay, and by the way only God knows how many men and women she has had sex with. I just can not believe her due to the life style she lives. All she is looking for is fame and or fortune. I do not watch 60 minutes and shows like them for many years now. I don't wast my time on them, I find it more productive to get my news from people like you, who the truth even if it hearts. Boy I wise we had more pastors who would do the same in the pulpit, we would not have as many sinful problems and not as bad!

    As a long-time voter, I can't recall very many Presidents that didn't have their affairs. In the old days, no one talked about the affairs, the Press kept quiet and no one was the wiser. Roosevelt had his mistress, same with Eisenhower, but no one talked about them either. We have so many vital issues today, and the only news outlet reporting the serious things is Fox News. I pray for our country and what is happening to it. I'm ready for the Rapture anytime. Thank you Governor for keeping us informed.

    Now Stormy Daniels [no relation to Jack Daniels ?] is selling her CDs on another network [4 for $20], sounds like quite a deal and the 60 minutes gig was a great way to launch her advert on the sale. hurry and you may be able to get yours before Easter !

    She is not relevant and only made her fame by being a hard core pornography "star". She admitted she is happy for the attention because "I can get more work". Let's pray she comes to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and will no longer cast her pearls before the swine that gobble up pornographic trash.
    FIGHT THE NEW DRUG!

    I believe the publicity/notoriety she is getting is worth more to her than any "complaint" she has against President Trump or a member of his staff. And the mainstream media is happily cheering her on by this continual coverage. Would the media be so eager to cover this nonsense if it were a high ranking democrat? Not likely. What is the ultimate goal is she after? (or being prodded to go after?)

  • Crystal Engels

    Uhhh...can we say, and remember Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe?? And she was just 1 of MANY affairs he had!! WHILE he was married, AND the President of the United States!! It's just a another clear example of the left's double standard!!

    I was appalled and disgusted by this interview. Did they really have to put in all the tawdry details of spanking and mention his daughter. Shame on 60 minutes and CBS. Is there no respect anymore for the office of the Presidency? I have gotten to the point that I don't want to watch any news program any more. This country is so filled with hate and anger that it makes me fear for the future of my grandchildren .
    I wish more people like you would speak out

    Dear Honest Huck, Most all of the news I read now comes from You. My husband and I got sick and tired of the same old news in even in our local paper that we have discontinued it. We read OAN online and for a laugh now and then look at Fox news. Please keep your sensibilities and continue to give us news we can digest. Thanks, Sheri

    Another has been wanting recognition and our left media is more than willing to give it to her. I have stopped watching 60 minutes many years ago when I saw how they were spinning the truth.

  • Fran Burns

    03/27/2018 11:43 AM

    I did not watch this 60 Minutes segment nor would I watch any news or other program coverage involving Stormy Daniels. I refuse to give her the time of day. I don’t like any posts regarding her. She’s a liar who disrespects our President and wants to do him harm...for a fee.

    If having sex made us incapable of working and making right decisions then no-one would be able to do anything that has ever had sex.. Whether Pres. Trump did or didn't have extra marital affairs before becoming President is totally between him, his wife, and family, not the rest of the U.S...Sounds like this is just a ploy to try and get him impeached, or could this possibly be 2020 election meddling?

  • Jo Ann Gippner

    03/27/2018 11:33 AM

    Why do we want to hear about Pres. Trumps trists? I am confused. He was not President, he was not running for President, he was not even thinking of running for President as far as we know. Why would his sex life be on 60 Minutes? She confessed she did it for gain, to boost her career, joining herself to someone she was not even attracted to. What does that say about her? And then extorted money to keep quiet...why is she not in jail for blackmail is my question?? She is still taking money from anyone who will listen. Now the story is out so she has no more leverage. Why should 'anyone' pay her? I just don't get it. Her 10 minutes of fame maybe?

    I care more that President Trump is doing a wonderful job doing what is right for our country. The Bible has taught me not to gossip and to mind my own business. President Trump has received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour shortly after becoming President. The Bible tells us that whatever has been done in the past is forgiven. It’s easy to see he has changed his life. Let’s give credit where credit is due and support our wonderful President and his beautiful wife Melania. God is back in the White House and in their hearts. This Is what matters to the American people .

    Re: Stormy: Adultery is a sin. If you truly mean it, you can ask for forgiveness. If you truly mean it and never do it again. God knows if you mean it or not. Your sins will find you out. I don't think there are many in Congress, the TVMedia, the entertainment sector, judicial sector, or person that can throw the first stone. Look what this has done to Trump's family with these women coming forward. Greed, greed! Makes me think less of these women. This was in the past. Doesn't have anything to do with making America Great Again. Trump is not the only President that committed Adultery. Don't have room to list them.

    Just another example of how LOW the Democrats will go to deface Pres. Trump and attempt to discredit his presidency. We probably haven't seen the end of this.....

    I was disgusted with the 60 minutes interview but actually had to turn the TV off yesterday morning because of the disgusting rehashing of the interview on ABC’s morning show. I’m back too we used to have to watch news and report on current events in school many years ago and now we do not dare let our children hear what is reported on the news! Very sad for our country!

    Isn't this, along with everything else that the liberal establishment is doing being done to distract and stall for a hopeful midterm election that brings them back into power? I did not vote for Trump on his morals as I don't know what goes on behind closed doors or in the soul of any person. I voted for him for improving our economy, defending our borders/citizens, and improving our defense. If we were to condemn everyone in the White House of their sins and casting of stones, it would be an empty house and an empty parking lot.

  • Diane Rowlands

    03/27/2018 11:14 AM

    She is trash and a liar. She has contradicted herself so many times. i dont believe anything that woman says. I think the news media is crazy for giving her airtime and reading time. This whole thing is ridiculous. It was 12 years ago and Trump was not campaigning or was President. Pres. Clinton did alot of worse things than this. So if Trump did this, he should have been careful and not give her the time of day.

  • Dusty Burton

    Let me see, $130,000 for a one night stand? To my way of thinking makes her a very high priced prostitute!!??!!

    I've arranged with the Rabbi of my synagogue to have "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" removed from the 10 Commandments.

  • Debra Black

    03/27/2018 10:52 AM

    Why would I listen to two people, one a porn star and the other gay, about morals. The left will stoop so low. We did not elect Trump because he was squeaky clean. We all are not squeaky clean. Only Jesus Christ. We believe God put Trump in office to fulfill prophesies. One of them is Jerusalem. He who has not sinned, let him cast the first stone.

    '60 Minutes' is now '60 Minutes of Jerry Springer." Stormy Daniels sold herself to the highest bidder to tell a fabrication that has the Deep State written all over it. I didn't watch, just as I don't watch any of those shows that give a voice to people who behave badly.
