Here’s How the Stormy Daniels Scandal Has Further Proven Trump’s a Spineless Coward

According to Donald Trump and most of his supporters, he’s a “tough-talking, straight-shooting alpha male who tells it like it is and doesn’t back down to anyone.” That’s a rather comical assessment considering this “president” is, without a doubt, one of the most weak and insecure human beings I’ve ever seen.

Like most bullies, and Trump’s definitely a bully, he simply tries to use whatever power and influence he has to go after people who he views as weaker than himself. He’s also someone who’s made many of his boldest comments and attacks hidden behind a screen, typing them on Twitter where he’s safe from anyone really being able to push back and stand up to him.

That’s why so many “trolls” choose the Internet, and in particular social media, to go after their victims. They’re cowardly bullies who hide behind a keyboard to attack and/or harass others.

Yet I couldn’t help but notice that since the Stormy Daniels scandal first became public, Trump’s been almost completely silent. That’s rather uncharacteristic of someone who has a long history of personally attacking anyone who dares say anything that might cast him in a negative light.

Then again, that shouldn’t be surprising considering the fact that we all know Trump’s a weak, insecure bully and this is how people like that act.

He knows Daniels has enough evidence on her side to prove that the two of them had an affair. I wouldn’t even be surprised if she has some sort of evidence that could prove some of the more embarrassing things she’s said about him are true.

The unusual silence we’re currently seeing from Trump is what happens when a person like him is up against someone who he knows either has something on him (see: Russia and his refusal to publicly confront Vladimir Putin) or when he’s up against someone who doesn’t seem afraid to stand up to him and, at least for a brief moment, is making just about as many (if not more) headlines than he is.

For all intents and purposes, she’s controlling the narrative — and Trump’s doing his best to hide while hoping that, eventually, it will all blow over.


As I’ve stated from the beginning, I really couldn’t care less about this “sex scandal.” I’ve always assumed Trump’s had affairs on all of his wives, including Melania, so this news isn’t exactly “shocking.”

For me, this is a perfect example of how Trump lies about everything. Even when faced with indisputable facts that essentially prove what he’s saying is a lie, he’ll still cry “FAKE NEWS!” because he doesn’t want people to believe something negative about him is true.

We know Daniels was paid $130,000 just prior to the 2016 election by Michael Cohen. The exact source of that money, and whether or not it was somehow linked directly to his campaign, is still a question people are trying to answer because, if it was made by his campaign, then the fact that they didn’t disclose the payment makes it illegal.

So, if there was no affair, then why, exactly, did they pay Daniels $130,000 and why are they now making threats of legal action against her for supposedly “breaking their agreement.”

Last I checked, people aren’t paid large sums of money to be silent about absolutely nothing.

Though another aspect to all of this I’ve found interesting is how it’s exposed how much of a coward Trump is. A man who loves attacking practically anyone and everyone sitting behind a keyboard sending out grammatically incorrect tweets often filled with numerous spelling errors — who’s now, when faced with someone who’s fighting back against him, is doing his best to hide, choosing to let his lawyers do the talking for him.

Like the weak, insecure, gutless bully that he is.
