If you’ve been paying attention to the coverage that porn star, Stormy Daniels, has been getting in her ongoing attempts to get coverage about an alleged affair that she had with President Trump, you might have noticed an odd double standard.
Some 20 years ago, the same media that has been so dogged in their attempts to chase down the story behind the possible affair were singing a very different tune about Bill Clinton’s pecadillos.
Back then the media argued that the sexual predilections of a couple of adults shouldn’t be anyone’s business but their own.
Whenever it was pointed out that several of Clinton’s liaisons were with women who claimed that they were unwilling participants in the “romance,” the media simply shrugged off their stories and told America there simply wasn’t any evidence of wrongdoing.
Fast forward twenty years and suddenly Bill Clinton’s victims sound much more credible, but the media now says that’s all in the past… but what’s in the present? The consenting sexual activities between Trump and another adult. And this is not a young, impressionable intern being pressured by the world’s most powerful man… this was a consensual relationship between a sexually powerful woman and her paramour.
Instead of telling America that we shouldn’t care about the President Trump’s sexual escapades, particularly an affair that took place years ago, they have spent countless hours breathlessly reporting on the possibility that Stormy Daniels had a relationship with Trump.
My, what a difference a few years makes…
Here are a couple of the Clinton family’s victims speaking out on that ugly double standard being displayed in the media today.
“I’m not a porn star, I was a hard-working nurse and businesswoman. I wasn’t a porn star so that’s why they weren’t interested in me.” — Juanita Broaddrick on why the media didn’t care about her story, but do care about Stormy Daniels.
