If ONLY The Stormy Daniels Story Concerned President Romney...

…Then the media offen­sive might have a prayer of doing what they want it to do, bring down a GOP president.

You see Mitt Rom­ney has a his­tory of an image of a good fam­ily man, a man of high (per­sonal NOT POLIT­I­CAL) moral stan­dards and char­ac­ter so if it turned out that he had been boink­ing “A” or even “B” list porn stars on the side it would be real John Edwards Class Scan­dal that the MSM would pur­sue with much more vigor than they did the Edwards tale.

But alas for the MSM Don­ald Trump is not Mitt Romney.

If 30 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, hell even 5 years ago some­body told you that thrice mar­ried and twice divorced bil­lion­aire Don­ald Trump had banged a porn star and had arranged a side agree­ment to pre­vent it from com­ing out would any of you have been sur­prised or inter­ested? I mean there is a rea­son why InTouch mag­a­zine didn’t bother to run that story way back when.

Who Don­ald Trump was before he ran was baked into vot­ers, includ­ing evan­gel­i­cal vot­ers, cal­cu­la­tions when they voted for him. As I said at the time of my lonely re-​endorsement when the billy Bush tape came out

To those who have endorsed Don­ald Trump, the idea that he is both boast­ful and vul­gar has been a given, it has been fac­tored into the equa­tion con­cern­ing him. Fur­ther­more his pub­lic per­sona has been out there for decades and he has never pre­tended to be any­thing other than what he is. I fur­ther sus­pect the vot­ing pub­lic has already fac­tored this into their image of Trump and it is unlikely that this rev­e­la­tion is going to move those who haven’t made up their minds one way or the other despite the shocked faces at CNN.

That the MSM hasn’t fig­ured this out yet amazes me, that the NYT is sell­ing this as a scan­dal that could bring down Pres­i­dent Trump is laugh­able, that Joe Scar­bor­ough and Mika Brzezin­ski have gone so far as to claim that the poten­tial Kim nego­ti­a­tions are a ploy to dis­tract from this story stu­pe­fies me and causes fel­low never Trumper and Stormy Daniels story enthu­si­ast Allah­pun­dit at Hotair to sug­gest he has brain dam­age.

But by all means MSM do keep play­ing this card and con­vince vot­ers of the left that this will bring down Trump any day now. The result­ing dis­ap­point­ment should have laud­able effects in dis­heart­en­ing your base.

…Then the media offensive might have a prayer of doing what they want it to do, bring down a GOP president.

You see Mitt Romney has a history of an image of a good family man, a man of high (personal NOT POLITICAL) moral standards and character so if it turned out that he had been boinking “A” or even “B” list porn stars on the side it would be real John Edwards Class Scandal that the MSM would pursue with much more vigor than they did the Edwards tale.

But alas for the MSM Donald Trump is not Mitt Romney.

If 30 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, hell even 5 years ago somebody told you that thrice married and twice divorced billionaire Donald Trump had banged a porn star and had arranged a side agreement to prevent it from coming out would any of you have been surprised or interested? I mean there is a reason why InTouch magazine didn’t bother to run that story way back when.

Who Donald Trump was before he ran was baked into voters, including evangelical voters, calculations when they voted for him. As I said at the time of my lonely re-endorsement when the billy Bush tape came out

To those who have endorsed Donald Trump, the idea that he is both boastful and vulgar has been a given, it has been factored into the equation concerning him. Furthermore his public persona has been out there for decades and he has never pretended to be anything other than what he is. I further suspect the voting public has already factored this into their image of Trump and it is unlikely that this revelation is going to move those who haven’t made up their minds one way or the other despite the shocked faces at CNN.

That the MSM hasn’t figured this out yet amazes me, that the NYT is selling this as a scandal that could bring down President Trump is laughable, that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have gone so far as to claim that the potential Kim negotiations are a ploy to distract from this story stupefies me and causes fellow never Trumper and Stormy Daniels story enthusiast Allahpundit at Hotair to suggest he has brain damage.

But by all means MSM do keep playing this card and convince voters of the left that this will bring down Trump any day now. The resulting disappointment should have laudable effects in disheartening your base.
