FEMINIST HERO: A very cool visit from Rolling Stone!

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2018

Part 3—Feminist hero at home:
Is Stephanie Clifford a feminist hero?

Is she a hero or a feminist at all? Does she have to be?

Staing the obvious, everything is possible! That said, we wouldn't be inclined to see Clifford in such ways, at least not in the context which is currently devouring our failing nation's appalling and broken-souled corporate cable news monster.

Within that context, we'd say that Clifford is a person who had a seamy sexual relationship in 2006, then tried to make some money from it. We don't know if she was being paid in real time, though that's certainly possible, given the fact that her paramour was the highly disordered man known as Donald J. Trump.

Perhaps it was love at first sight! But in 2011, Clifford reportedly tried to sell her story about her affair to a tabloid entity for $15,000. And uh-oh!

By the summer and fall of 2016, Trump had become a much more significant figure.

Sure enough! According to Slate's Jacob Weisberg, Clifford was trying to sell her story again during that glorious time. Wisely, she wasn't willing to reveal "the juiciest details" until she could finger Slate cash:
WEISBERG (1/16/18): In our conversations, Daniels said she was holding back on the juiciest details, such as her ability to describe things about Trump that only someone who had seen him naked would know. She intimated that her view of his sexual skill was at odds with the remark attributed to Marla Maples.

She didn’t allege any kind of abuse, insisting she was not a victim. The worst Trump had done, she said, was break promises she’d never believed he would fulfill. She claimed he’d offered to buy her a condo in Tampa, Florida, and that he’d said he wanted to feature her as a contestant in an upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice. Daniels, who is far from naïve, says she did not take him seriously, but Trump had insisted his NBC contract let him do whatever he wanted on the show. Eventually, she said, he’d told her the network wouldn’t allow her on the air because of the objections of an executive’s wife.

[...]

Given what was going on in the final weeks of the campaign, during which Trump was facing a torrent of accusations of sexual abuse, I didn’t think an extramarital affair would be a highly significant story. What interested me more was Daniels’ allegation that Trump had negotiated to buy her silence. Daniels said that, through intermediaries, she and Trump had worked out an agreement for the presidential candidate to pay her a six-figure sum to keep quiet.
She'd been offered a six-figure deal, but the money was slow in coming.

"Given her experience with Trump, she suspected he would stall her until after the election, and then refuse to sign or pay up," Weisberg wrote. "As an alternative to being paid for her silence, Daniels wanted to be paid for her story."

Slate doesn't provide sacks of cash in exchange for news, so the deal couldn't be consummated. Clifford ended up taking the cash from Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's guardian devil or angel.

To our eyes and ears, none of this looks or feels especially heroic. None of it looks or feels very "feminist."

Still, it's a marker of our modern world that our many tribal groups are willing to assert and believe almost any proposition which furthers some tribal narrative. On this basis, Salon's Nicole Karlis has now declared that Clifford is a "feminist hero" who is fighting for the right to share a "#MeToo story."

Claims like these tend to convince the wider world that we liberals are crazy, possibly even nuts. Part of Karlis' detailed reasoning appears in this part of her essay:
KARLIS (3/18/19): Why has the feminist left been slow to embrace her? Why is there still a mocking undertone when we talk about her? Is it because she’s a Republican? A stripper and adult film star? Is it because of her campy Make America Horny Again tour? Maybe it’s because she allegedly had consensual sex with Trump, an act that’s unthinkable to so many of us? But she was 27, and it was 2006 when the alleged tryst happened. As Clifford’s friend/assistant Kayla Paige said to Rolling Stone, "Who hasn't gone and f**ked someone we regret?”
As a thought experiment, we're prepared to revise and extend that thoughtful question from Clifford's friend, Kayla Paige. Here's how we'll rewrite it:
Who hasn't gone and f**ked someone we regret, then tried to sell the thrilling story, humiliating his wife and his 5- to 12-year-old child?
When we restate the question that way, we suspect that almost no one "has gone and done that!" But just to double-check, we reviewed the Rolling Stone piece from which Paige's question emerged.

Rolling Stone is the well-known liberal publication which recently convinced the world that we liberals are crazy and very possibly nuts. The magazine accomplished this task through its appalling treatment of a (false) claim about gang rape at the University of Virginia.

The gong show-flavored publication engaged in this clownish behavior a few years after a range of liberal thought leaders, including half the faculty at Duke, stampeded off to believe a (false) claim about a gang rape there.

In these ways, our liberal tribe persuades the world to despise us. Dumb and tribal as we are, we never seem able to grasp the fact that this loathing could be based on anything but the demonistic mental states Hillary Clinton keeps attributing to The Others on her endless world tour.

(Most recent stop, Mumbai.)

We liberals are quite a bunch! At any rate, Rolling Stone told Denver Nicks to pay a home visit to Clifford. He too decided that Clifford's a hero, or at least his editors were willing to say that he did.

His profile of our feminist hero appeared under the headlines shown below. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh! Wink wink wink wink wink:
One Night with Stormy Daniels, the Hero America Needs
Frozen g-strings, squirt guns and hot wax—how Trump's alleged porn-star fling is unapologetically cashing in on a presidential scandal
Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh! It sounded just amazingly hot, thought perhaps not totally feminist.

For the record, Nicks is the author of Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks, and the Biggest Exposure of Official Secrets in American History—but also of Hot Sauce Nation: America's Burning Obsession, which appeared in 2016.

Amazon describes the latter book as "a journey of discovery...[which] explores the unique hold the dark prince of condiments has over the American heart." And how apt! In service to this terminally stoned, braindead magazine, Nicks stumbled upon some very hot sauce when he dropped in at the home of on our feminist hero.

Here's how his profile began:
NICKS (3/9/18): Stormy Daniels answers the door of her Houston hotel room wearing little athletic shorts and a green Pantera tank top over a sports bra, her long blond hair in a loose ponytail. We shake hands and she jumps back onto her bed, sitting up with her legs tucked under her in half lotus. Her assistant and longtime friend Kayla Paige, a retired adult-film actress and wife of Limp Bizkit founding member Sam Rivers, buzzes with aimless energy around the room they're sharing. They'd only just woken up and are in the middle of a discussion about penile implants, which I confess I didn't know is a thing. Then Paige half-jokingly wonders if she needs vaginal lip reduction surgery and drops her pants for reference. She isn't wearing panties.

Daniels rolls her eyes and laughs.
I stand for a moment unsure where to sit, then motion to the other bed, which Paige says I can sit on. "I don't have anything," she assures me with a chuckle.
Just so incredibly cool! Especially for feminist men and boys of all ages!

We've always wondered what heroes are like if you catch them at home! Nicks was getting a chance to find out. The start of his profile continued:
NICKS (continuing dorectly): I sit on the edge of the bed and Daniels and I make small talk. Her safe word, I learn, is “penguin.”

"Penguins have terrible breath," she says.

"How do you know penguins have terrible breath?" I ask.

"They smell like they've been eating bad vagina. I got to pet one at a zoo–if you ever go to the zoo, the penguin habitat is the stinkiest one. It smells like a really bad porn set."

She goes on like this for half an hour, bouncing from topic to topic.
What a super-cool, foxy lady! This is the kind of feminist hero we'd like to take home to the voters!

Should progressives hope that Stephanie Clifford gets to tell her #MeToo story, helping ten of millions of deplorables develop strong feminist values? For better or worse, does Clifford actually have any such story to tell?

We'll admit that we aren't seeing a whole lot here that smacks of "feminist" values. Being human ourselves and opposed to hate, we do wonder about something else.

Tomorrow: "Penguin" but also "Rosebud," plus disfigured hearts and heads

  3. "To our eyes and ears, none of this looks or feels especially heroic. None of it looks or feels very "feminist.""

    According to Somerby, there is a specific way to be heroic and a designated way to be a feminist.

    Most of the things women do are not heroic. Women clean offices at night and take care of other people's children. They serve meals in diners and they keep books in small businesses. None of that is heroic at all. Are these women then not suitable to be feminists? Part of the point of feminism is that women do not participate in the really important activities that men reserve for themselves. But it takes two to engage in sex and many men prefer to look at women like Stormy so her job is a bit unusual, although there are legions of female sex workers because men do feel lust and create that market for their services.

    But Stormy has succeeded in making a fool out of Trump, sexually speaking. Somerby blames Stormy for humiliating Melania and Barron (yes, these people do have names). But wasn't it Trump who did that? Stormy's crime is failure to remain complicit in Trump's misbehavior. She is not ashamed of what she does -- she is not the person cheating. Trump is not embarrassed either. He just sees political loss, not personal shame in what he does with and to women. I doubt Melania or Barron care either. Barron will follow in his father's footsteps and Melania is just as complicit as Stormy when it comes to satisfying men's sexual needs for money. She knows the score.

    So why is Somerby engaging in this handwringing? It is because a woman, Stormy Daniels, is failing to abide by the role assigned to her. She is trying to earn money in "tacky" ways that embarrass men on Trump's behalf, since he is incapable of embarrassment except over comments about his hair and hands. Stormy is refusing to occupy the hidden corners of men's world. She is advertising and promoting her services, as any good business person would. She is attracting attention to herself and to what men do.

    That is what makes her a feminist hero. She is reflecting back to America the inequities of the way men indulge their sexual fantasies at women's expense (the shaming) and she is asking us to either accept what men do honestly or change it. She is also showing us who Trump is, loud and clear, in ways that are difficult to ignore or explain away. That makes her a liberal hero, if we are brave enough to own her.

    Somerby clearly isn't. But we know already that Somerby is no feminist and no liberal.

  4. "our liberal tribe persuades the world to despise us"

    Somerby disagrees with Karlis' opinion. Fine. Some people agree, many others don't. Controversial or contrarian views often get published. So what? That happens on the right too. Karlis doesn't speak for all liberals.

    Does Somerby really believe that liberals "persuade" conservatives to despise liberals? Did MLK persuade the bigots to despise him? A bigot would say yes.

    Conservatives despise us because we are their political opponents. It's weird to suggest that liberals must police themselves and never say anything that might offend conservatives. Hell, I believe global warming is real...does that make conservatives despise me? How about being pro-choice?

    Ultimately, Somerby is demanding that liberals allow conservatives to set the framework of any discussion, since conservative feelings are apparently paramount. And, I hate to tell you this, but they will not like us any better, even if all the Nicole Karlis' of the world were to follow Somerby's advice and shut up, or change their views to suit Somerby or the conservatives.

    I happen to think that Somerby is misrepresenting what Clinton said. And even if he is right, why does Somerby want to silence her? She has the right to speak out. She is a private citizen with opinions.

    Hillary was hated by the right as soon as she entered public life. This supposedly horrible statement of hers is just another in the long line of excuses the right uses to keep hate alive. Somerby agrees with the right wing apparently.

    2. Hillary was hated by the right as soon as she entered public life.

      Yes, we're not supposed to remember that.

      It amazes me how TDH has adopted the Beltway Boyz wisdom that if we just get rid of those tiresome Clintons and shut them both up once and for all, everything will be like springtime in America and all those Democrats who have been voting for republicans their entire lives and feasting on FOX NOOZ night and day when they're not letting Rush Limbaugh take a fresh dump in their skulls every day, will spring up like daisies and return to voting democratic.

      Al Gore tried that. How'd that work out?

      And then let's not forget the years 2008-2016. I seem to recall a fresh faced crazy optimist who thought the entire problem with the extreme right was that they hated Hillary Clinton and that it would never happen to him. He reached out to the middle and got his hands chopped off, had a SCOTUS pick stolen from him, and proceeded to preside over total devastation of the democratic party throughout the land.

      For those too dense to recall, let us recap the past couple weeks. As I recall, president pussygrabber held a rally in trump county, PA, where he proceeded to call Chuck Todd a son of a bitch to wild cheers. The following Tuesday, the Democratic candidate in the republican district won a narrow race that was watched intently by national media. The following Sunday, Chuck Todd, pausing only to insist that he demands his children show respect to President Pussygrabber, held a little gabfest on his sunday show to pronounce how the Democrats have a "Nancy Pelosi problem.

      That is where we live, America, 2018. God bless.

      The point of Anon 12:46 and mm is that the right wing's hatred of Hillary is not rational. She could say the sky is blue and they would call her a liar for not also acknowledging the sky is sometimes cloudy. Nothing she could ever say or do would ever satisfy the right.

    10. I wonder if they've done any surveys on the millions and millions and millions and millions of Americans who voted for Obama and then voted for Trump. They should ask them and find out why. Is it because they are racists? Or because their misogynist who are against women's progress? Or what is it? What did they say? Those millions and millions and millions and millions of people?

      Because then the next question would be if it's not because they hate blacks and women, do the reasons they give have anything in common with other Trump voters? Or are the other Trump voters primarily against blacks and Mexicans and women's progress? Well, of course you would subtract out the blacks and Mexicans and women that voted for Trump. But of those remaining white men. Maybe finding a Common Thread between the reasons for the Trump Obama voters and and the other Trump voters that don't have to do with race or misogyny would give us some Clues as to the types of policies that concern these people and we couldn't turn concentrate on that and man that are leaders address those types of policies.

    15. Unpopular and yet she won the popular vote by over three million.

    16. Yes, she was really, really, really unpopular. People didn't like her. They never did. Lord, what an election. Two of the most unpopular candidates of all time running against each other!

    17. Or as Gerber would put it, "many many many many many" times really unpopular - maybe "7 to 9 million" times unpopular.

    18. If Clinton was really really unpopular, how much less popular was Bernie, and Obama, who she nearly beat in the primaries in 2008! And why has she been voted the most admired woman since she became first lady, over Michelle, Laura Bush and even Oprah? So unpopular!

    19. "likability" is not a thing. It never was before and it hasn't been since. It was a new metric invented by the Beltway Boyz who were concerned that it wasn't going to be a competitive race since she was always polling well ahead of the traveling carnival show that was tRump. So they spent their time telling the country day and night how unlikable she was.

      Every time Hillary tried to do an interview or debate she was confronted by a smirking pundit asking her why no one likes her. You never heard that question asked of the Orange Caligula who spent his time attacking these very same pundits.

    20. So so so so so so so many people dislike her. But not everybody. I know you guys like her. I know you mm think she's just so so so so so great. And I know you agree with a lot of her policies. Like how she's going to raise the minimum wage. And I know you agree with a lot of the things she says. Like the reason people voted for Trump is cuz they don't like black people. Really, what else could it be Besides that? Healthcare premiums? No way.

    21. I agree with mm that this likability stuff is manufactured BS. She wasn't popular, Trump wasn't popular Obama wasn't even that popular. Politicians are unpopular right now. Her biggest problem was that she was an insider. That she wasn't an outsider. People are so disgruntled with institutions in general and specifically politicians and government. Anyone that's an insider that represents institutional power is in big trouble in these types of situations. It's why Sanders and Trump did so well.

  8. "we never seem able to grasp the fact that this loathing could be based on anything but the demonistic mental states Hillary Clinton keeps attributing to The Others on her endless world tour."

    Somerby and his analysts never seem to be able to grasp the fact that there are other possible explanations.

  9. Kevin Drum has a graph up today that shows Hillary didn’t lose any Dem voter identifications, even among the high school grads.

  10. Bob is really taking a hammer to this dead horse with a passion. Should this surprise anyone? The same thing was done with that all time dubious victim, Monica Lewinsky. Will anyone ever have the guts to look into what Trump has paid off the Clinton women?

  13. The problem is that I have been focusing on the negative part of marriage, not speaking to anyone about my failed marriage and pretending everything is okay by putting up fake smiles. My husband transformed into a beast, cheater and abuser. It was unbearable to see a man who once vowed to shield us as family transfer aggression to me and the kids, pushing us hard to the wall.
    But there is time, reason and season for everything either good or bad. I ran to Dr. Wakina for salvation which I eventually achieved through his extra ordinary spell. Our differences were settled and every heart wounds healed within 2weeks. I am grateful my husband transformed again to an angel which he has always been. Thanks to our redeemer (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) Dr. Wakina Love Temple.

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby.
