If you were to tune into CNN, or any of the other liberal news outlets over the past few months, it would be inevitable that you would be blasted with ideas that the 45th President Donald Trump, is the worst human that has ever walked the planet. When allegations of a connection between the Russian government and the Trump campaign were disproved, the news went into Trump’s bedroom. Literally, liberal news organizations are so determined to destroy the character of Donald Trump that they are continuously dissecting the story of Trump’s affair with a porn star, Stormy Daniels. 1
In 2011, the pornographic actress claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump. Trump has since declined, and then accepted the allegations that he has slept with Daniels. However, the negligible scandal comes as a result of Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, paying Daniels $130,000 in order to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the affair. 2
The Stormy Daniels story, is ridiculous, and only highlights the left’s inability to use reason to explain why their ideas are worthwhile. First, the progressive culture often highlights and promiscuity. In an article from May, 2017, the New York Post wrote an article in which they said that it was time to “rethink cheating.” 3 Using logic and normal, adult, human reasoning, that would mean that it is either right or wrong for everyone to cheat. If it is ok for everyone to cheat, then Trump did nothing wrong, and if it is always wrong to cheat, then sexual promiscuity is wrong, and liberals have a foolish platform.
Second, the government should not be in the business of inspecting bedrooms. In America, 38 states have laws that allow them to imprison individuals for things like owning more than six dildos (Texas), or that it is illegal to get married if you have gonorrhea (Montana.) 4 These are necessarily offences against the individual, and are violations of the right of privacy, and any sort of right to self-ownership.
The third, and biggest reason the Stormy Daniels story is irrelevant is, who cares? Nobody ever expected Donald J. Trump to be a moral beacon, or the prime example of monogamy; and if they did then they should have revisited his time in the WWE, the Apprentice, or friendships with the Clintons.
Donald Trump obviously has his shortcomings, whether they are moral, Twitter rants, or decisions to start WW3 because of self-destructive patterns in the Middle East. Yet, this Stormy Daniels story is not one of them.
