Over the course of Donald Trump’s presidency, we’ve seen more than a few tell-all books hit the shelves from various former insiders, family members, employees, or friends of the Trump family.
While each one tells its own story of the horrors of Donald Trump and his people, each one also has its own personal twists and turns full of new and even more disturbing revelations from the author’s point of view — even when we think we’ve finally reached the point where he just couldn’t possibly, humanly get any worse.
The past few years have given us testimonies in the form of a gut-spilling opus from everyone from Trump’s former National Security Adviser, to Melania’s former best friend, to his own flesh and blood, his niece Mary Trump.
But to be frank, there is one tell-all story that we’ve all truly been waiting for — Michael Cohen’s.
Cohen used to serve as Trump’s personal attorney and “fixer” — ultimately landing a three-year federal prison sentence for tax evasion and campaign finance violations connected to the work he did for Donald Trump.
We’ve had a good feeling through the course of this disastrous administration that if anyone knew the deepest, darkest secrets of the guy who’s currently inhabiting the People’s House, it would be this guy — and we weren’t wrong.
And then we stumbled across this juicy tidbit from the Wall Street Journal.
As we know, Cohen played a huge roll in the hush money payments that were made to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal ahead of the 2016 election, in an attempt to keep her quiet about the sexual escapades she had with the then-candidate Trump, so as not to further harm his election chances.
Cohen told the judge during his guilty plea in 2018 that Donald Trump had personally directed him to make the payment to the women.
In a deeper dive in his book, the former “fixer” says Trump personally approved the payments made to Daniels and McDougal and allegedly stated that the $130,000 payment “is a lot less than I would have to pay Melania.” Cohen also recalls Trump musing that, should word of his sexual deviance and affairs end up getting out, his supporters might “think it’s cool that I slept with a porn star.”
Folks, with the election so close, it’s high time we all take a good, hard look at the man who’s vying for a SECOND term in the White House.
