But if there was no affair, then why was there an NDA?

There was no NDA, they claim?

Then Daniels is free to speak.

Round and round we go…


#3

Well now Trump has put his foot in it. Cue the contents of the DVD.


#4

I wonder if Donald had Melania sign an NDA as a condition of marriage?


#5

I’m sure their prenup probably reads like an NDA.


#6

I never even saw this scumbucket before. Is he new? Who cares. Hope he enjoys being forced to tell humiliating lies for the next few weeks before being abruptly fired.


#7

Portnoy saying “this is nothing outside the ordinary” is inadvertently honest here. I have no doubt that he is telling the truth and an NDA accompanied by a cash payment from Trump’s lawyer is “nothing outside the ordinary” for Trump’s many affairs and gross, gross sexual encounters.


#8

Sadly, all I can see coming of any of this whole thing is that it will demonstrate the hypocrisy of evangelicals. They have already shown that pretty clearly, though.


#9

I have not proof of it, but I would almost guarantee that the prenup includes what is essentially an NDA. If I had to guess, I’d guess the prenup is pretty horrendous in ways that most people would never even think about.


#10

“strongly and clearly denied” her claims.

Except the claims that they have acknowledged, like the payment and the NDA.


#11

That’s some “nice” weasel words in “The White House didn’t engage in any wrongdoing”, considering that these idiots weren’t in the White House when it happened.


#12

So this he won’t tweet about. I didn’t know he could stop himself.


#13

He should count himself lucky. It looks like he’s being given the rare opportunity to make a statement on behalf of the “president” while being confident that it won’t be totally undermined by a 3AM tweet from a toilet in the West Wing. Spicer and Sanders must be so jealous.

She was warned.


#15

Whenever one of his client’s businesses inevitably goes belly-up, I suspect Cohen advises him to do this:


#16

Trump tweet on Wednesday:

Stormy Daniels is a LIAR. Sad porn star seeking attention. Pathetic. I DID NOT HAVE A STROKE OVER THE WEEKEND. Fake news.


#17

Knew it had to be too good to be true. He won’t stop unless he loses major muscle control.


#18

This morning Trump tweeted:

“So much Fake News. Never been more voluminous or more inaccurate. But through it all, our country is doing great!”

He is clearly addressing Stormygate without explicitly addressing it. I am finding it exceptionally curious that this seems to be the one thing that Trump is actually listening to his lawyers about. There’s got to be more to it than just the fact that Cohen broke campaign finance laws.


#19

It’s interesting that nobody is mentioning that if Cohen really did pay hush money to without Trump knowing as he has claimed that’s completely illegal (an attorney can’t just make unilateral decisions on behalf of their client like that) and grounds for disbarment. So either Trump knew and signed off on it or Cohen is the worst attorney ever and should be banned from practicing law.

I’m pretty sure that wasn’t written by trump himself and someone has gained access to his account for now.
