‘C’mon brother’: Watch this CNN panel’s painfully awkward response to a Trump backer’s Stormy Daniels joke

Published

on

A panel on CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight” Tuesday appeared stunned by ardent Donald Trump supporter Stephen Moore after he tried to make light of a new lawsuit filed by Stephanie Clifford (“Stormy Daniels”) against Donald Trump (“David Dennison”).

Clifford on Tuesday filed suit against Trump in in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging the president never signed the nondisclosure agreement that resulted in a $130,000 payout for the porn star. Clifford says the “hush agreement” is invalid because it lacks Trump’s signature.

Lemon declared the saga was “like an eighties nighttime soap opera” before bringing on contributors to discuss Clifford’s lawsuit against the president.

Republican strategist Kevin Madden noted he can “pretty much predict what the White House is going to say” about Clifford’s lawsuit, “which is this is somebody trying to get attention, trying to drive their own sort of PR effort here.”

“But there are some very credible claims,” Madden acknowledged. “And the fact that we are even having this conversation should be—you know—it should probably register on the Richter Scale that we’re discussing a sitting president being sued by a porn star. But we’re having it. And it’s part of almost like the routine of today’s news cycle, which is the interesting part of it.”

That’s when Moore tried to mock Clifford’s profession.

“Kevin, are you saying that a porn star would actually try to call attention to herself?” Moore asked, adding: “Shocking, right? I mean, that’s what porn stars do.”

Fellow panelists—and Lemon—immediately pounced.

“Stephen, that’s your only response?” Lemon asked. “Is that a porn star is trying to call attention—a porn star with a very lengthy complaint from California? I mean, it’s, you know, hey, $130,000 from the president’s personal attorney. Come on, brother.”

Fox News cuts into Trump’s Turning Point USA speech after he starts rambling about handshakes

Published

on

Fox News on Tuesday briefly interrupted a speech being delivered by President Donald Trump at a Turning Point USA summit.

During his speech, Trump started talking about delivering a commencement address at the Air Force Academy.

"They said, sir, would you like to shake the hands of all the cadets? I said how many other? They said 1,100. I said yeah, that sounds okay,” Trump remarked.

“Do other presidents do it? Yes, they do. Do all of them? What they didn’t say is they start, then they peter out. That sun was beaming down, and if some of these guys are great athletes — some of the women, they had some women in the class, their hands were very strong, okay.”
