New Report Reveals How Desperate Trump is to Distract From Stormy Daniels Scandal

Donald J. Trump is someone who seems to live every moment of his life obsessed with making sure everything he says and does (at least in his mind) benefits him in some way.

I’ve never seen a more insecure, mentally weak, self-serving lowlife than Trump.

For a perfect example of what I mean, look no further than a report from Vanity Fair alleging that, despite not really liking him, Trump hired new National Security Advisor John Bolton in a desperate attempt to create a headline to distract from the Stormy Daniels 60 Minutes interview.

Yes, according to this report, the “president” hastily hired someone to a vital role in our government who he doesn’t really believe should have the job — a man who could literally help push us toward war — for no other reason than to try to distract from his coverup of an affair he had on his current wife and First Lady, Melania.

While a disgustingly shameful story, it’s not at all surprising considering the type of person Trump is. When news of Daniels’ interview broke, many people began speculating that Trump would do something trying to distract attention away from what she had to say.

Even though Trump’s denied the affair, as well as having any knowledge of the payment made to her just before the 2016 election, at this point it’s essentially indisputable that the two had an affair and you’d have to be an absolute fool to believe him when he said he had no knowledge of any “hush money” being paid to her.

I’ve said from the very beginning that I couldn’t care less about Trump having an affair because I assumed he was cheating on his wife anyway.

For me this story is about the lies and coverup. There’s almost no doubt that Trump had an affair on his wife, then paid Daniels to be quiet about it, yet he continues to deny this despite the fact that his own lawyer has admitted that she was paid $130,000 as part of an agreement to not speak publicly about their relationship.


Now this adds a new wrinkle to a story that’s clearly not going away anytime soon. Donald Trump, this country’s “president,” apparently hired John Bolton to a position in our government he really didn’t think he should hold for no other reason than to try to generate an attention-grabbing headline to distract away from an interview a former mistress was giving on 60 Minutes. 

It’s depressing and embarrassing to realize that this is currently our reality.
