Aristotle said it first but no one cared to remind Anderson Cooper or Sixty Minutes of that saying when they headlined Stormy Daniels’ appearance on the show as Porn Star’s Affair With Trump. Turns out to have been Brief Encounter more than Affair to Remember, specifically a one time experience. For many $130,000 would have seemed more than generous remuneration, even for a woman with a sense of self as inflated as her chest, but Stormy has been fortunate in receiving even bigger offers for her ability to add to the media’s hate campaign against the truculent tweeter. The serious journalists who have occupied seats on Sixty Minutes must be chagrined at having Stormy earn the show its highest ratings in years. As for Anderson, he seems to have become the reporter with a specialty niche of asking former Playboy centerfolds and current porn-hackers whether they or their johns used protection during sex. One wonders whether he would ask a gay compatriot a similarly salacious question and whether his concern was for the spread of venereal disease, unwanted pregnancy or just to experience the frisson of rudeness.
Stormy claims that she went public because she feared for her child’s life after receiving a threat from an unknown man on the street; this might explain why she would notify the police but makes us wonder why a woman who occupies one’s entire field of vision would want to amplify that target for additional unhinged people who would see her up close on t.v. Is it possible that someone who has been in a dubious business, known for using underage performers, might have fibbed about her motivation?
Regardless of Stormy’s vested interest in ongoing compensation for her brush with a head of state, we need to refresh our national memory for how the media and Hillary treated Bill Clinton’s “bimbos” and how little credibility they were afforded Perhaps it’s time for that battalion of women to MeToo forward so that we’re clear that dallying with women who are comfortable having sex with married public figures, not to mention those who specialize in more exotic trades, is certainly not at all politically motivated This is just America giving its exploited females the chance to “‘tell their truth” and “control their own narrative,” phrases that Stormy needed to learn before she could don her plain cotton shirt to face a much different audience than her usual nocturnal fans And though her future looks decidedly more sunny and green, the reputation of Sixty Minutes as a muck-raking news magazine has descended to a Page Six smut-peddling vehicle, peeking out from behind a porn star’s oversized proportions.
