So Stormy

My time is brief today, and  I only have one other blog entry on tap for later this week before my next Music Video Of the Week for Friday, so I'm going to be very succinct in my reaction to Anderson Cooper's "60 Minutes" interview with porn actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels.
The cover-up is always worse than the crime.  Everyone knows that Donald Trump is a skank and that having a sexual encounter with anyone - porn actress, Playboy model, Shakespearean actress,  haute couture model (yeah, right - like any woman of the latter two professions would have anything to do with the Donald or that the Donald would have anything to do with them) - when your wife has just given birth to your son is the height of skankishness, but being a skank is not a federal offense.  What is a federal offense is how the Trump team tried to cover it up by covering up the cover-up, assuming the allegations that Clifford and her lawyer enunciated in last night's interview are true.
If this doesn't being Trump down from a legal standpoint, his affair with Clifford will still be his undoing. Because people will be so tired of hearing of his sexual peccadilloes that they'll vote him out of office just so they don't have to hear about him anymore.
Aside: I don't think it's a coincidence that porn actor, professional wrestler, and rapper are three of the most disreputable professions ever conceived and that porn actors, professional wrestlers and rappers go by such outrageously stupid stage names. Stormy Daniels?  Sergeant Slaughter?  Dr. Dre?
