Whenever the current occupant of the federal executive mansion permanently exits that place, it will have to be thoroughly decontaminated even before it can be redecorated for any new resident. Donald J. Trump has turned the White House into a brothel.
The abrupt departure of Rob Porter, the president’s former staff secretary, exposed the mess. It is a literal “Peyton Place” of romance and intrigue among the Team Trump insiders. Porter, along with as many as three dozen other key staffers, had incomplete security clearances, although they routinely handle the nation’s most delicate secrets.
The rumor mills around town are rife with salacious stories about the royal court, up to and including King Donald J. himself.
So it came as no surprise that 45 hypocritically wished for Porter to receive a chance to defend himself against what he said, amount only to unproven “allegations” made by the women, and that instead of having his career ruined, he should have been entitled to some sort of “due process.”
It takes a person with absolutely no sense of balance or reciprocity (like DJT) to protect someone, after he once viciously condemned five innocent Black and Latino men in a full-page newspaper ad, calling for the death penalty for them. The men were falsely accused and convicted of raping a female jogger in New York’s Central Park in 1989.
But he defended Judge Roy Moore, accused by multiple women of stalking and preying upon them when he was a so-called hotshot Alabama lawyer and when they were underage children.
He defended media figures Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes, who each paid women millions of dollars to buy their silence about their illicit sexual behavior.
This president of the United States has himself been accused of all manner of sexual wrongdoing. The Washington Post reported a list of 13 women who have publicly come forward with claims that that dude physically touched them inappropriately in some way, and they all have corroborating witnesses.
In interviews with Howard Stern and “Access Hollywood,” the guy boasts of grabbing women’s crotches and walking into the dressing room of the beauty contest he owned for “inspections” during the pageants.
“You know they’re standing there with no clothes. … And you see these incredible-looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that,” he said to Stern.
And then there is porn star Stormy Daniels, who was paid $130,000 by Trump’s lawyer to buy her silence. There is another secret. Stormy had already given an interview, before her confidentiality agreement with Trump just before the 2016 election.
Stormy cavorted with His Nibs in 2006, just after incumbent wife Melania (of whom there are said to be nude photographs floating around the internet) gave birth to the couple’s son. Stormy said he had her spank him with a magazine whose cover featured a picture of him. That is real perverted, but it’s typical Trump.
And then there is former Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal, who was paid $150,000 by Trump’s chums at the National Enquirer for exclusive rights to her story about her 2006 romance with The Donald, months after he married his third (and current) wife Melania, but the newspaper never published her story.
Trump’s just about the trampiest dude who’s ever been president of the United States. If I may say so, with no offense intended to the real, standup comedian, this dude is like the Rodney Dangerfield of presidents: he “can’t get no respect” — or rather, he can’t command any respect because of his lowlife behavior.
