As Josh Marshall correctly said, "Why?" Gag us! The headline at TPM says this:
Karen McDougal Details Relationship With Trump In CNN Interview (VIDEO)In the actual TPM report, Caitlin McNeal regurgitates treacle, then says this:
"Watch the interview via CNN:"
All you have to do is click. She provides a way to watch!
"Watch the interview," McNeal said. We have a good answer: Why?
Twenty-six years after Gennifer Flowers hijacked an election with an account which she almost surely made up, why are we still being told to watch someone babble on and on about consensual sex?
Why are we supposed to watch that? Why are we supposed to pretend that it's some sort of #MeToo story?
What makes us so gillible, so slimy, so dumb? Just last week, Josh Marshall asked the right question when he spoke a certain slime merchant:
MARSHALL (3/16/18): Let's launch right into it. First question, sort of a "devil's advocate" question:The lawyer didn't answer that question. But it was the right question then, and it's the right question now.
Why does the public need to know about Stormy Daniels' story at all? My understanding from that 2011 interview is that it's a consensual relationship. So why is this a public story? Why does it matter?
Why does the public need to know about Karen McDougal's consensual f**king? About her consensual f**king in the year 2006?
Putting the question a bit more precisely:
Why should we invite the public to be distracted by McDougal's nonstop talk about her consensual f**king? And why on earth would Caitlin MacNeal tell us to sit down and watch?
We let Gennifer Flowers run this gong-show back in 1992. Her story was almost surely bogus. We assume McDougal's story is true.
Still and all, why in the world would anyone want to stop and listen to this? Why in the world are liberal journalists urging people to watch?
Once it starts it never stops! Donald J. Trump is girding for war. We can't stop watching The Sex.
