Stormy is part of the Clinton's attempt at a counter Storm. They need cover for the real news of the insanely corrupt Clinton/Obama crimes being discovered.

How could he have cheated on Melania?! What a dope.

Wall Street Journal broke the story.

Pussy grabbing apparently costs 6 figures.

She does have quite a figure, 6 seems excessive for just a quick grab.

“Porn Star: Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels Invited Me to Their Hotel Room

‘I ended up with Donald in his hotel room. Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities,’ Stormy Daniels told fellow porn star Alana Evans.”

I did not have sexual relations with that woman. Speaking for myself.

So Trump was still sexually active in 2006?

“Stormy calls me... with Donald [Trump] and I can hear him, and he’s talking through the phone to me saying, ‘Oh come on Alana, let’s have some fun! Let’s have some fun! Come to the party, we’re waiting for you.’”

How exciting. Consensual sex is taboo in liberal societies. It's no wonder that the French are laughing at the pussy... hats. #SheKnew

Feste said...

She looks Norwegian.

I don’t look at porn. I did a Google search for “Norwegian porn stars.” I expected only pics of faces - like the post here on chimps to see if I could do better predicting kin relations between Stormy and the Norwegians based on faces, that is, whether I could predict kin relations better with humans than I predicted with the chimps (I’m lying). My God, I didn’t know how readily available this stuff is.

Maybe we really do need more Norwegians to move here.

Ann Althouse said...

Are there no porn actors? They’re all “ porn stars.”

I went to a college friend's bachelor party years ago. "Stormy Daniels" was the entertainment. I got a lap dance from her. This was before she "porn star". She's a nice Louisiana girl. Just making a living.

Um, if both Trump and the girl in question are vehemently saying this is not true, and it's all based on anonymous sources... again.... then why on earth should anyone believe anything from the leftist media about this? They have no reputation left, and they openly admit they lie and make stuff up.

I mean, I expect Chuck and Inga to fall for this: they would believe the earth is flat if the NYT said so, but the rest of us should be able to use a bit of logic and sense here.

Feste said...

Truth. I left the porn site. "Ninotchka" DVD arrived today. Guessing I’m younger than Buwaya. Definitely not as learned. Most definitely not as wise. Working my way back in time through old and recommended movie classics. I enjoyed the thread here on Jeanne Moreau. I saw an Orson Welles clip and a Bette Davis comment, and maybe a comment by Marlene Dietrich too, all on Greta Garbo - so I want to see Garbo. I think it was Welles who said that he saw Garbo personally in a Scandinavian country, and she bellowed like a cow for a milk commercial, before she became Divine. Pretty much everyone said of Garbo that she could do magic with her face. I’ll be spending the night with Garbo soon. Mistress Mine, a younger and more elegant Candice Bergen, will join me, if she’s lucky, so I don't need or want porn, happy at home - unless I start comparing her with Garbo ;).

Buwaya - just for fun. I guessed correctly that 'ford' in Clifford is cognate to fjord, so was just playing around at surname history sites looking for Scandinavian surname histories, but it's mostly English, so yeah, Urdu-speaking Pakistanis could find this stuff, and I don't trust that her real surname is Clifford anyway.

Dumb stuff for a dumb man.

Peace out.

rcocean said...

And if it WAS True, why should I care?

Clinton had Lewinsky's IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Clinton paid off Paula Jones. JFK was banging an intern IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

Media Matters/David Brock was paying women to accuse Trump of sexual harassment in Oct 2016.

Why should I care if Trump paid off a porn star because he had sex with her 10 YEARS before the election?

The days of electing choir boys as POTUS are OVER. Of course, I fully expect the Dumbo Republicans to trash their own side, while giving the Democrats a pass.

rcocean said...

Its like Roy Moore, doing a she said/he said 35 FUCKING YEARS ago.

And yet it worked! Because Republicans are stupid.

Heh ... took the advice to search nude plus Norwegians, “Meet the Norwegian woman dubbed the 'world's sexiest firefighter',” Gunn Narten ... I told my wife I’m ready to call 911, she said, “that’s enough of her" ... (and a few other cat-fire things) .... out

I have it on good authority that consensual adulterous sex has no bearing on a man's fitness to serve as President of the United States.

fivewheels said...

"Porn star" is badly overused as a synonym for any adult film actress. But no matter how restrictive you wanted to make the tern "porn star" -- top 3 in the world? -- Stormy would be one of them.

Disclaimer: I've met the woman and found her intelligent and charming, in addition to stacked like a Dagwood sandwich. If she says it didn't happen, well, #IBelieveWomen

n.n said...

Both principals deny the story. What remains is a preponderance of hearsay allegations. Tabloid JournoLism. Besides, according to the tale as told, it was a consensual relationship, that was neither a boss and intern nor a casting couch relationship. So, any consequences are a matter of private concern. In fact, there was a Supreme Court ruling on this issue: privacy. So damn Pro-Choice.

Anyway, another baby hunt prematurely aborted.

A lot of negative things can be said about the Trump presidency but never let it be said that it has not been entertaining.

Perhaps Feste's Mom forgot to reset the computer's parental controls back to "12 and under."

And, Feste, if you're unclear on how parental controls work I suggest you go to Google and search for "12 and under" plus "porn."

I hope that helps.

As Erick Erickson pointed out last night, Haiti was one of the nations that sided with the U.S., when the United Nations voted to condemn the announcement of moving our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Norway – the place Trump wants to see more immigrants from – voted against us.

The Daily Mail says, repeatedly, "is said to have". The WSJ says "according to people familiar with the matter". That ought to be enough "vetting" to support a FISA Court wiretap order, right?

fivewheels said...

I don't like seeing Stormy being disparaged online as a bimbo, etc. She's really quite impressive, in her way. She started as just another house dancer in Louisiana, became a contract star at one of the Big 2 porn studios, then leveraged that into writing and directing her own big-budget (for porn) movies. She's one of the best writers in the biz. I recommend her spy comedy, "Operation Desert Stormy".

This is another reason I don't quite believe the story as is. I can, however, believe she took that payment to keep quiet about something, such as something she witnessed with a different woman, and that would make her statement accurate.

As far as why she would make the statement under her stage name, it's for the same reason she has a stage name at all, for her privacy. She's got a kid.

I guess that negates the running sewers in the streets and the astonishing levels, almost Inga-approved islamist levels actually, of sexual violence (real sexual violence, like islamist sexual violence, not like fake p****-hat wearing fake violence) against women and young girls.

I mean, they voted with us once in the UN, so I guess that poverty level and low levels of education no longer count.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Haiti is still a s***-hole. Ask any, and I mean ANY Dominican, Puerto Rican, or Virgin Islander.

Chuck said...

Vance, the Wall Street Journal broke the story. Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal. Rupert “Friend of the Donald’s” Murdoch.

And to The Godfather; the reason that the Daily Mail couched their own story in terms of, “it was reported” is because they were ripping it all off the Journal.

William said...

Until he fell in with that crowd at NBC, Trump was a happily married man of sober habits. Then all those rapists and low lifes at NBC corrupted his morals. They led him astray. He would have remained on the straight and narrow if he hadn't been egged on by Matt Lauer. "Go on, Donald. You're not only famous, you're rich. Nothing women like more than to be groped by rich, famous men."

If I had a few billion dollars, I wonder whether I would pursue fashion models or porn stars in my leisure time. Porn stars are kind of déclassé, but they're really into it, even when they're not really into it. Fashion models look like they might be pettish and irritable. I'd probably go with the porn stars, but that's why I'm not a billionaire........I read Edward Radzinsky's biography of Stalin. Radzinsky was the son of a noted Soviet screenwriter and knew some Moscow Babylon gossip. Apparently quite a few of the Bolshevik notables had affairs with members of the Bolshoi troupe. Soviet support of the arts and this famous dance company wasn't completely altruistic. These champions of the proletariat had more exploitative sex lives than Belle Époque plutocrats.

William said...

Can we describe the Soviet Union of of Stalin's day as a shithole. They were all Caucasians.

YoungHegelian said...

1) Trump won the presidency instead of HRC.

2) Trump nailed Stormy Daniels.

Ya wanna bet which one Bill Clinton is more envious of Donald Trump for doing?

fivewheels said...

"If I had a few billion dollars, I wonder whether I would pursue fashion models or porn stars in my leisure time."

One of the beautiful things about porn ladies is that you don't have to be a billionaire. Believe me, I mean this in literally the best way possible, but my observation is that a lot of them are ... kind of easy.

fivewheels said...

Not Stormy though, tbh. Mainly the ones who qualify as adult actresses, but not bona fide "porn stars".

bgates said...

It's worth discussing this at length. It's wrong, and it's stupid.

It's wrong in that Haiti did not side with the U.S. Haiti merely abstained.

It's stupid in two distinct ways. For one, there's the obvious fact that there's no reason whatsoever to link a purely symbolic vote in the UN General Assembly to immigration. More entertaining than that is the implication that immigration should be linked to siding with the US on that particular vote, which would mean we'd restrict entry to citizens of the following nations:

Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo, and that's it.

I think I can speak for Stephen Miller and Ann Coulter when I say, "DEAL!"

That's a lot of woman. If you ask me, it's obvious that this is nothing more than another example of WINNING!

Yancey Ward said...

It is behind the paywall, so did the WSJ identify who the "people familiar with" are? Did those people provide a picture of check Daniels received? Basically, is seems when the WSJ asked for confirmation or a quote, they got flat denials by all the principals involved in the story. I mean, just a description for how these were identified as "people familiar" might provide enough to hang this story on, but so far I have found literally zilch other than someone told the WSJ it happened, and basically with no evidence at all. Against that, flat denials that the story is true weighs significantly more.

chickelit said...

My impression is (and I think it's a shared impression) is that the WSJ is NeverTrump if not anti-Trump.

Chuck can confirm or deny this.

Gahrie said...

Even if true, why does this story matter?

there’s the obvious fact that there's no reason whatsoever to link a purely symbolic vote in the UN General Assembly to immigration.

In your opinion. You forgot to add that part. Google proving a negative.

That’s how they get the women to do it. I guess with men, it’s more a matter of turning them away, though.

Knowledge of Dr. King's hotel room trysts--together with those of various Kennedys-- was brought to us by the FBI, the same great organization that has been protecting America from the enemy within since the 1920s and apparently has some strange ideas about spying on GOP candidates for high office in the 2010s.

James Comey could explain it all to us, if he were willing to. And if we don't agree, we probably have something to hide.

"

"James Comey could explain it all to us, if he were willing to. And if we don't agree, we probably have something to hide."

The DoJ IG started his document dump early. It was promised for Monday, but it started Friday night. Apparently 1.2 million pages or so, probably a lot still classified, to be delivered to AG Session and Congress. Sally Yates (the Obama appointee whom Trump fired for not defending the administration in the immigration cases) had apparently prevented the DoJ OIG from investigating their national security division - the group that deals with FISA, etc. Only with Sessions taking over as AG has their IG been able to finally investigate whether or not the DoJ and the FBI were operating illegally, and, in particular, whether the FISA law and associated data collection was abused by the Obama Administration for partisan advantage. This investigation is why Trump and Sessions have been biding their time, and haven't heeded the call for a special prosecutor be appointed for investigating this stuff.

This could be the biggest political scandal of our lifetimes. There is enough (real) smoke to suggest it:
- NSA under Adm Rogers discovered that "about" searches of electronic surveillance were routinely being abused (by the FBI?). He turned that over to the FISC directly, instead of going through his boss, DNI Clapper, who promptly tried to get him fired (10/16 - right before the election). Also discovered was that the FBI (under Coney) had (illegally) been allowing contractors to access the databases of electronic surveillance collected under FISA.
- Obama White House was FISA "unmasking" like crazy. Much under the identity of the UN Ambassador, who, as an intellectual gender consumer, instead of producer, shouldn't have been doing much, if any. She claims it was someone else using her credentials. Which is probably a lot worse.
- up until last week, the big question was whether the Clinton/DNC funded Steele Dossier had been used to get FISA warrant/authorization to surveil Trump Tower and/or his campaign and transition team. Chairman Nunes finally got to see the paperwork this last week, after 5 months of being sandbagged by the DoJ and FBI. The last few days though, the new question is whether Fusion GPS was one of those contractors illegally accessing the FISA databases, and if that was the source of the Dossier in the first place. Oh, and we now know that there was a strong relationship between the DoJ/FBI and Fusion, and it's players, including that the wife (Nellie Ohr) of one of the DoJ/FBI leaders involved (Bruce Ohr) worked for Fusion as a Russian expert.

The ball is rolling now, and I don't think that anyone can stop it.

Khesanh 0802 said...

This is a quote from the WSJ article:

"Mr. Cohen also sent a two-paragraph statement by email addressed “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN” and signed by “Stormy Daniels” denying that she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Mr. Trump.

“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said."

This says that there is no there there. I am somewhat ashamed for the WSJ dragging this out for a second time. James k makes the very good point that the WSJ "news" guys are independent of the editorial guys and must feel that they need to compete with the WaPo and NYT in the race to the bottom.

Personally, I continue to be happy every day I wake up and Hillary is not president.

Khesanh 0802 said...

@Bruce Hayden So you essentially agree with Kim Strassel that all the screaming we are hearing this week is to distract from the fact that the shit is about to hit the fan on the "Dossier" and all it's connected parts. From what we have learned without the IG's report I am convinced that there are a number of people who should be concerned about jail time (Strzok, Ohrs, DWS, Comey, Huma, Hillary , and more). Whether that will happen or not, it would seem that the pressure to "cooperate" must be building to painful levels (note the postponement of the Carlos' divorce).

I am certainly bias in favor of the Trump administration, but my fairly impartial subconscious is pretty convinced that there are some very guilty people at the upper levels of the, now thankfully defunct, Obama administration.

FIDO said...

Stormy will probably be making even more money now. That $130,000 will be chump change in comparison to this bump.

Ray said...

WSJ reporters come from the same place as NYT and WP reporters, journalism schools. I found the wsj articles a bit less biased, but not by a lot. The business writing was better. The opinion and editorial page was much more conservative.

I am surprised the wsj released this. My guess it was a hit job and the wsj was chosen for maximum impact for the release. Sounds tin foil hat territory, but remember journalist.

The IG report is due any day, and sounds explosive. Plus all the Dossier stuff coming out.
