Several women stepped forward this week to say that Donald Trump made unacceptable sexual advances towards them 10 to 40 years ago. This was part of an elaborate setup involving Clinton campaign staffer Anderson Cooper and women who were willing to make up any story to harm the Trump campaign.
Right before the second presidential
debate, a recording was released of Trump talking into a hot mic with
Access Hollywood host Billy Bush. Bush was encouraging him with a lot of
sex talk, and Trump was going right along. It was certainly not
presidential, but it was private, locker-room talk that Trump was goaded
into making. As far as the Reprehensibility Meter goes, it certainly
didn’t rise to the level of the many rapes and assaults that I believe
Bill Clinton has committed, with Hillary Clinton serving as an accessory
after the fact.
When Clinton campaign representative Anderson
Cooper kicked off the second debate with a question about sexual
assault and kissing, I immediately suspected that it was already
arranged for someone to step forward and make some type of claim against
Trump. I was correct. What surprised me was how weak all of the claims
were. Let’s examine just one of them, with more to come.
Natasha Stoynoff is a reporter for People magazine who wrote a story
about story about Donald and Melania Trump’s first wedding anniversary
in 2005. Describing the alleged assault at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate,
she said, “We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door
behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against
the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.” (It would be helpful
if Stoynoff had specified exactly which room this supposedly occurred
in, as several of the rooms have glass walls; of course, that may be why
she was intentionally vague).
Are we really to believe that a
reporter for a national publication wouldn’t find this worthy of some
type of mention in 2005? I simply can’t. I once was involved in sending a
reporter to do a nice little story on Jerry Lee Lewis’ birthday party.
During an interview, an inebriated Lewis chose to playfully point a
pistol as our reporter a couple of times, which he found not amusing at
all, and that became the most important part of the story. So instead of
a nice, happy story on Jerry Lee’s birthday there was a story about how
Jerry Lee is still running around drunk and unhinged these days. That’s
what reporters do, and that’s what Natasha Stoynoff would have done if
Trump had actually forced a kiss of this type on her. Even if she comes
up with some lame excuse for not reporting the incident, it certainly
was newsworthy a year ago, at the start of the presidential campaign.
Why the silence until Anderson Cooper laid the trap?
that People magazine would go along with this shows that the media, for
the most part, are no longer journalistic enterprises, but rather public
relations outfits for the American left and the global elite. Like any
good P.R. firm, they will share bad news about their product when forced
to do so, but their job is one of promotion, not reporting.
In the end there is no way for us to know whether some of these claims
are true or not. In some cases there are factual inaccuracies that prove
them impossible. But in other cases, such as the claim of Stoynoff, we
have to just decide whether or not they are true based on their
plausibility. For her claim to be true, she would have to be a really
terrible reporter who chose to remain silent when her claim might have
hurt Trump during the Republican primaries, but who suddenly felt the
need to come forward when it was just a two-person race. Under these
circumstances, I do not believe her.
Perhaps someday we will again be able to turn on the television or pick
up a newspaper and get truthful news coverage, but for now the Media,
like the Clintons, exist only to serve the interests of the global
