It escaped my attention yesterday that Comrade Trump is suing Stormy Daniels for $20M Ameros, $1M for each time she (allegedly) has broken her NDA:
“A law firm representing U.S. President Donald Trump and the corporation that paid porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in what she called hush money over an alleged affair with Trump said in a court filing that it was seeking at least $20 million in damages for multiple violations of a nondisclosure agreement…
“Under the nondisclosure agreement, Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, could be subjected to a $1 million penalty each time the deal was broken.”
At MPS we often say that you cannot shame the shameless, so I don’t expect that Trump will care at all that his lawsuit is giving the underlying story credence. Heck, he made a signature part of his personae bragging about his exploits to Howard Stern.
I think that most savvy media personalities (let alone politicians) would let Daniels tell her story and ignore it, or at best say that she’s seeking attention, trying to revive her career, etc., but instead he is pushing it into the headlines. But then again Comrade Grabber knows that there are other women out there with non-disclosure agreements. Probably lots, but I’m only guessing.
So his lawsuit is actually bullying these women again.
Bullying is the only trick in his bag. If Daniels and her excellent pit bull attorney have the fortitude to keep punching back and not being intimidated, will Trump, like most bullies, crumple like a shirt fallen off the hanger?
I dunno, but I think we’re going to enjoy watching this story play out. Also/too: he’s taking the rest of the GOP down with him as he careens into the 2018 Pie Fight. I cannot imagine that he’s winning new voters, especially women, to the party.
