The President of the United States is a serial adulterer.
We’ve known this for quite some time, but any doubt was removed this week when we heard a recording of a conversation between Mr. Trump and “fixer” attorney Michael Cohen in which they discuss paying off Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal to remain silent about her sexual relationship with Mr. Trump. This is in addition to the previously revealed extramarital relationship Mr. Trump had with adult film actress Stormy Daniels. (I hear she was quite good in “Debbie Does the House Armed Services Committee.”) I don’t know how many ducks there are in all, but I hear an awful lot of quacking.
Presidential adultery is by no means a new phenomenon. In my lifetime alone, we know that Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Clinton all had relationships outside their marriages.
What you think about this, I will leave to you, dear reader, except to say that only the rankest hypocrite could possibly have different opinions depending on the political affiliation of the adulterer. Well, it turns out there are a whole bunch of rank hypocrites in our country and they all ride elephants.
Republicans believed Bill Clinton’s adultery was worthy of impeachment. Of course, the impeachment effort was rendered rather comical when it became known that about half the people involved in pressing the case had rips in their own ethical togas. Trump’s indiscretions? Outrageous. That is, outrageous that his attorney would record a conversation with his client and that the fake news media still can’t get over the fact that Mr. Trump won the presidency by minus three million votes.
Looking back, Bubba should have cut Monica a check and picked up her dry cleaning tab.
Frankly, I don’t give a damn who has sex with whom and I’ve never had sex outside my marriage. I guess I’ll never get to be President or a Republican.
