So Much for #MeToo: Democrats Bet on Porn Star to Bring Down Trump

So Much for #MeToo: Democrats Bet on Porn Star to Bring Down Trump

I watched a portion of the 60 Minutes interview of Stormy Daniels by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Watching wasn’t by choice, as the bar where I having drinks had the show on.

60 Minutes posed Daniels front and center, after having a few people discuss the sordid details of the supposed sex romp Donald Trump had with Daniels 11 years earlier.

I love the irony of the people who declared Bill Clinton’s sexual dalliances with Monica Lewinsky while Clinton was president, “his personal life”, suddenly developed morals. Thus, a supposed 11-year old affair is fair game.

Trending: Did Kavanaugh Accuser Send SAME Letter About Gorsuch

I watched patrons in the bar completely ignore the interview. Personally, I was disgusted that the formerly venerable 60 Minutes stooped to such low-brow journalism.

As for the Stormy Daniels story, leading up to the 60 Minutes interview, I noticed how much the lamestream Leftist media covered the story.

CNN and MSNBC were relentless in their coverage. Their fascination with this story reminded me of how they treated Michael Wolff, the guy who wrote the book about the Trump presidency.

I honestly had to look up his name and that of his book, Fire and Ice: Inside the Trump White House. Multiple venues recently canceled appearances by Wolfe, I learned. And I’m not surprised.

The Washington Post wrote of Wolff’s story “crumbling”:

Author Michael Wolff so thoroughly enjoyed bringing the accountability to President Trump. In round after round of interviews following the early January release of his book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” the longtime New York journalist would happily expand upon the book’s themes: that aides to President Trump unanimously agreed that he was unfit for the office; that Trump and his top aides never expected to win; that the White House was riven by a paralyzing factionalism.

Now the accountability is descending on Wolff himself, and he is crumbling in theatrical fashion. “I can’t hear you,” said Wolff in a recent interview with the Australian news program “Today” under questioning from host Ben Fordham. What Wolff allegedly couldn’t hear was a question from Fordham about Wolff’s allegation — floated during a January book-promotion appearance on HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher.

And now Wolff has become persona non grata. Look at the outcome of Wolff’s supposed inside the White House expose of President Trump:

Michael Wolff, author of the sensational Fury and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, is supposed to be on a speaking tour to promote his book, but many of the dates for his shows have been canceled after several controversial media appearances by the author.

Wolff in late February announced the tour that had at least 18 stops across the U.S. and was supposed to last through April and into mid-May.

As of Tuesday, however, shows planned for Portland (April 13), Los Angeles (April 14), and San Jose (April 17) have been canceled, according to websites for the venues where the shows were scheduled to take place. Shows on the schedule for Toronto (April 29) and Denver (May 4) have also been canceled.

Stormy Daniels now sees her future.

What I find most interesting about the Stormy Daniels story is how the Left doesn’t see how this will backfire.

Forget that Trump seems impervious to their lies and false narratives. Because even if true, the Daniels story is doomed.

First, it’s retread of the campaign. The Left tried “bimbo eruptions” to taint Trump before. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.

Second, the Left’s history on presidential bimbos doesn’t leave them much credibility to attack Trump. So the longer the Left try this silly course, the worse things get.

Third, Conservatives aren’t buying the story thanks to Leftists. If the Clinton Era did anything, it conditioned even Conservatives to loosen up the moral compass a bit.

Finally, Democrat voters see the hypocrisy. The Left learned nothing from the campaign. The Democrats who abandoned Obama and Hillary Clinton to vote for Trump did so for the very reason the Democrats pursue the Stormy Daniels story. These Democrats recognize how duplicitous their party is, a party of double-standards.

Generally, this type of hit on a politician occurs before a campaign. But President Trump has almost three more years in office. And if the Democrats believe this story will hurt him or Republicans in 2018, as I’ve explained, they miscalculated.

So why are they doing this?

In a word: desperation.

What else do the Democrats have? They certainly can’t face the truth of Obama: the worst presidency in American history. From the crooked FBI to the crooked candidate that Obama tried to shoe-horn into the White House, the dam has broken.

Stormy Daniels is the shiny object for the Left to take their base’s minds off they real issues. The Russian investigation has long been “the joke’s on you!”, as the Left now find themselves in a pickle of their own creation. And the FBI story will be their undoing, as it brings down the lot of them.

When the Daniels story goes away, reality sets back in. More Comey-led FBI indictments, and eventually indictments of high-level Obama administration operatives.

Yes, when Stormy Daniels does a Michael Wolff, things will indeed get stormy for the Left.

Oh, and as for the #MeToo crowd on the Left, they will find selling their next tragedy a bit more difficult.
