Sunday Open Thread - There's a Stormy Coming In
Political sex scandals are nothing new.
Hell, even presidential sex scandals are nothing new. It's what happens when 44 out of 45 entitled White men become the most powerful person in the free world. The ability to use one's power in the subjugation of women can be a perk of the job. Now, not everyone elected president has succumbed to this temptation. We've had many more family men than sex hounds. But the fact remains that there will always be men in power willing to use that power in an act of infidelity.
What makes tonight's upcoming 60 Minutes interview unique is that encompasses the kind of hubris that will ultimately lead to Donald Trump's downfall. Never before have we had a president so corrupt that he routinely paid off those with whom he had an affair. Not only that, but he was too cheap to even pay off his lawyer who paid these women's silence and then used his hired muscle to intimidate and threaten these women. Stormy Daniels is just the tip of the iceberg for how Donald Trump conducts his business of affairs and as we know, this is one business which Trump actually has a proven track record of success.
This is your Stormy Daniels open thread.
