Our lives in the underwear drawer: We haven't read the actual report. We won't do so until morning.
But from the front page of the Washington Post's web site, here's the synopsis of a brand-new news report:
Federal inquiry into Trump’s lawyer seeks records on two women who alleged affairs with presidentReally? "Investigators are trying to determine if there was a strategy among Trump associates to buy the silence of women whose accounts could harm the president’s electoral chances?"
The interest in an adult-film actress and a former Playboy model indicates that investigators are trying to determine if there was a strategy among Trump associates to buy the silence of women whose accounts could harm the president’s electoral chances and whether any crimes were committed.
We certainly hope there was such a strategy! Hopefully, investigators are checking this out so they can honor those Trump associates if the story pans out.
Why should anyone care if Trump associates "bought the silence" of two women who got it on with a married person, then try to inject themselves into a presidential campaign for a big bag of cash?
Why would anyone want people behaving like that? Why would anyone be offended if someone paid such ridiculous hustlers to keep their big traps shut?
The women get the money they sought, our election campaign proceeds. Unless we want our political life to be all about who's zoomin' who—unless we want to discuss The Sex, full stop—why would anyone be concerned or offended by an arrangement like that?
This bullsh*t started with Gary Hart. Anthropologically speaking, it tells us who we are.
