In Spanky they trust

They honestly don’t care what he does. And that’s the lesson from the 2016 election.

But at least we get the satisfaction of seeing Spanky’s spanker troll the hell out of him.

Sources close to Penthouse have informed The Daily Beast that [Stormy] Daniels “talks about everything” concerning her alleged 2011 affair with President Donald Trump during the interview—including several NSFW bits left out of her 60 Minutes chat.

Referring to her defamation case against Trump lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen, as well as the allegation that someone possibly connected to Trump/Cohen threatened her, Daniels says in the interview, “I don’t have shame. You can’t bully me.” She also reveals that, should she win her case, she plans to donate the $130,000 to Planned Parenthood in Cohen and Trump’s names.

“We are really excited to have Stormy back on the cover of the magazine,” said Kelly Holland, CEO and owner of Penthouse. “She was a Penthouse Pet back in 2007, so we have a history with Stormy, and she has a good relationship with us.”

Sometimes, we reach a moment of clarity

From the Washington Post:

President Trump’s personal attorney Michael D. Cohen did work for Fox News commentator Sean Hannity in the past year, one of just three legal clients Cohen represented after leaving his post as a counsel for Trump’s private company in early 2017, his attorney told a federal judge Monday.

Cohen’s work for Hannity was revealed during a court hearing in Manhattan on Monday and confirmed by a source familiar with the relationship. Cohen also did legal work for the president and GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy in the past year, his attorney told the court.

Michael Cohen had three clients. A badly tanned buffoon, a GOP impregnating sleeze and Sean Hannity. So, now you know why a lying sack of shit is going out of his way to defend Spanky McPornfucke. I wonder what the ocher pussygrabber’s got on him?

I’m old enough to remember when working at the White House was a sign of honor

But no more (Via BuzzFeed):

Companies and firms who used to recruit from presidential administrations and brag when they were successful in poaching an aide are making the calculation that the risks of bringing on a Trump administration official outweigh the rewards, according to interviews with 10 current and former administration officials, top recruiters, and lobbyists who did not want to be named to talk candidly. BuzzFeed News reached out to them after previously reporting during an especially chaotic stretch for the Trump White House that some officials were trying to leave but finding their job prospects to be “pretty bleak.” That’s especially pronounced for more junior staff.

The leadership at a prominent, bipartisan Washington public affairs firm went as far as to make an active decision not to hire from the Trump White House because of the “reputational risk” associated with it, a former White House official was recently told. The official asked BuzzFeed News not to disclose the name of the firm.

In another case, a White House official said he was rejected out of the blue for a job after being given indications he would be hired and was explicitly told his affiliation with the Trump White House had been a problem for some at the company.

Honestly, if you owned a PR firm, would you want Ellie Mae Huckabee or the Mooch or Bullshit Barbie Conway or Sean “Biggest Crowd Ever, Period” Easter Bunny trying to convince people that everything they say isn’t a damn lie? Their only hope is if Fox News plans a massive expansion.
