the time for modesty is over, this kind of low level thinking has essentially taken over the boards so it's time to tell the truth

I had to mull this over for a while but in the end, it's just too comical to pass up on, regardless of the tabloid nature (or the fact that I've already posted three threads today).
As I'm sure everyone is well aware, six days ago WSJ published a story claiming that Donald Trump had an affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels starting in 2006, shortly after Melania Trump gave birth to son Barron and that Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer/bag man, had paid Daniels $130k in hush money a month prior to the election. The allegations of the affair first appeared in a celebrity gossip blog in 2011 but this was the first report of the hush money.
Since then, there have been a flurry of developments about the Stormy affair (get it? Flurry, Stormy? Never mind!)
First off, there was Cohen and the "vehement denial" of the affair on behalf of Donny. Then there was the release of a letter authored on Jan 10th supposedly from Daniels, released through Cohen, denying the affair. Then it turned out that lots of people actually had been working on stories about the affair, including Fox News, who sat on the story:
One of the network's reporters, Diana Falzone, had filed a story in October 2016 about an alleged sexual relationship between Clifford and Trump, people familiar with the matter said.
Falzone had an on-the-record statement from Clifford's manager at the time, Gina Rodriguez, confirming that her client had engaged in a sexual relationship with Trump, three of these people said, and Falzone had even seen emails about a settlement.
It also turned out that Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) had spoken to a writer at Slate about the affair but had wanted money for her story — and Slate doesn't pay sources. According to the writer, she also mentioned the payoff. Long story short, without her cooperation and independent corroboration, that story got shelved too.
Then there's the 2011 interview in In Touch magazine in which Stormy Daniels admits to the affair. She also apparently took and passed a polygraph at the time. (Who knows) Now that we're somewhat up to speed, here's are a few of the most funny bits to come out in the last two days.
First up was the appearance by Daniels friend and fellow porn actress Alana Evans on NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today which included this nightmare-inducing quote:
Evans relayed that when she later asked Daniels how the night went, she’d said, “‘Well, picture this. Donald Trump chasing me around the bedroom in his tighty whities’ isn’t something that you ever forget.’”
If you're having trouble picturing that, here ya go:
Next we have another story from In Touch, drawing from that 2011 interview.
Stormy revealed that she and Trump met up several times in the years following their original sexual encounter, and that she found him "pretty fascinating." Some of the "really good banter" they enjoyed came to involve his children, including this creepy tidbit: "He once told me that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful and smart just like his daughter."
Ick. Ugh. Yuck. But the absolute best — and these are A+ salacious tabloid details here my friends — comes from a piece in Mother Jones today.
Stormy Daniels Once Claimed She Spanked Donald Trump With a Forbes Magazine
This email was sent to Andrea Dubé, a Democratic political consultant based in New Orleans. In response, Dubé expressed surprise that Daniels was friendly with Trump. “Donald Trump?” she wrote. “In her cell phone?”
“Yep,” the other consultant replied. “She says one time he made her sit with him for three hours watching ‘shark week.’ Another time he had her spank him with a Forbes magazine.”
Dubé and the other consultant confirmed to Mother Jones they exchanged these emails.
The campaign consultant who wrote the email to Dubé tells Mother Jones that Daniels said the spanking came during a series of sexual and romantic encounters with Trump and that it involved a copy of Forbes with Trump on the cover.
A fall 2006 cover of Forbes does feature Trump and two of his children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka.
It appears that this is the cover referred to in the article? Not sure.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Okay, now that I've got that out my system. I'll wrap this up by saying, personally, I could care a less if he cheated on Melania with a hundred porn stars and paid them all off. I'm just not that prudish, it's not a disqualifying thing for me (though I could point to some of our right-wing members yammering about how moral right-wingers "don't even think about cheating" on their wives).
I do however find this hysterical. Who the hell gets spanked with a rolled up magazine? Bad Donny! Bad Donny! No! No!
Also, I think it's safe to say that once again Dishonest Donny and his Lyin' Lawyer have flagrantly lied to the American people, yet again. But then again, it's such a regular occurrence, you have to wonder if it's worth mentioning.

Has anyone done a financial investigation to confirm that Stormy got 130k from Trump? It shouldn't be too hard to find out. There's got to be some kind of trail for that kind of money.
If this is all true, shouldn't she have to give the 130k back?
