. . . Trump having a sordid dalliance with a porn star, then paying her to keep her mouth shut. Elsewhere I see people (Republicans) decrying this as a media smear job that would be put down as politically motivated if directed at anybody else, and not relevant. I actually think this is pretty much correct. Who could possibly be surprised by this revelation? Very few people honestly think that Trump is a decent man, but Republicans cheer him on because he's a Republican president and many of them love his racism, bullying, willful ignorance and wrecking ball policies.
