Rick Wilson demands Paris Dennard say ‘I love Donald Trump screwing a porn star!’ in off-the-rails segment

Published

on

GOP strategist Rick Wilson on Friday tore into Donald Trump defender Paris Dennard in a brutal back-and-forth over the president’s “amoral” and “scuzzy” behavior surrounding an alleged payout to adult film star Stormy Daniels in an explosive segment on CNN.

Wilson told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Trump’s alleged impropriety won’t hurt him politically because “he feels like his political base is secure.”

“They’ve told us over and over they will tolerate any amorality, any scuzzy behavior,” Wilson said, suggesting the president is now more interested in how the Daniels affair will hurt his bottom line. “We have to think about Melania’s prenup with him,” Wilson opined. “There may be a money equation there as well that he’s putting at risk.”

Asked by Baldwin why Trump has remained silent on Daniels, Dennard suggested “the president wants to dignify this story, true or false … this is something that is terribly embarrassing for the first lady.”

As Dennard talked in circles about the “timing” of the alleged affair being a major factor in Trump supporters turning a blind eye to the president’s behavior, Wilson asked, “can I jump in on this for a second, Paris?”

“I feel you’re struggling here,” Wilson said as Dennard protested. “Let me help you out here.”

Wilson pointed out Trump’s had a “long pattern of engagement with a variety of women to whom he is not married.”

“Are you telling me that [the GOP] never once brought up the fact that Bill Clinton screwed his way through Arkansas?” Wilson asked. “No. They did it all the time. It wasn’t the fact that he did it before he was president.”

Dennard insisted “that’s different” because Clinton “was the attorney general and was a sitting governor of Arkansas and the claims came via someone who was a sitting elected official.”

Is your standard of behavior so low?” Wilson demanded. “If your standard is that low, if your standard is that low, if you’re okay with him screwing porn stars, just say the words, ‘I’m okay with Donald Trump screwing porn stars.’ Can you say that for me, Paris?”

“I will say that you have no respect for Mrs. Trump, you have no respect for his children, you have no respect for his family,” Dennard said.

“No, I’m sorry,” Wilson replied. “Don’t you dare talk about respect when he insulted the [Khizr] Khan family, when he insulted John McCain’s war service. A man who has no respect for anyone on this earth. The fact that you’re defending him on that speaks much more about your character.”

“I don’t know you, Rick, but I would advise you to not question my character because you don’t know me,” Dennard replied.

Wilson later urged Dennard to “just say it.”

“Say ‘I love Donald Trump screwing a porn star!’” Wilson replied.

Baldwin asked Dennard about Trump’s hypothetical reaction were the tables reversed and Hillary Clinton made such a payment. Dennard conceded Trump would have had a “negative” reaction to Clinton, but continued insisting on the need to separate “apples from oranges.”

After a continued back and forth, Wilson went off, once again, on Dennard’s moral framework.

“The argument that Donald Trump’s lifelong pattern of infidelity, adultery, shattering every vow of every one of his marriages by his own admission and the fact that Donald Trump screwed a porn star—I don’t think Melania Trump will be more embarrassed by what Michael Cohen or Stormy Daniels has to say than by the fact that a few months after she had a kid her husband was screwing a porn star. That’s what you’re saying that’s okay. I get it. you accept that, that’s part of your moral landscape, good for you.”

The pair went at it for several more seconds before Baldwin cut them off.

“Okay, we’re done,” she said.

Wilson later took to Twitter to express disbelief over Dennard’s defense of Trump.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"

You’re a frog in a pot and Donald Trump is turning up the heat

Published

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

"Trump has instructed his White House to identify and force out officials across his administration who are not seen as sufficiently loyal," reported The Washington Post this week. It's one element in "a post-impeachment escalation that administration officials say reflects a new phase of a campaign of retribution and restructuring ahead of the November election." It's unclear what criteria they are using to define loyalty to this president*, but it's important to understand a few things about this story.

Justice Dept officials worry Bill Barr will fall quietly in line behind Trump after Stone interference: report

Published

According to a report from CNN, longtime Justice Department officials are concerned that Attorney General Bill Barr will do all he can to stay out of Donald Trump's sight and not interfere now that he was caught up in a squabble with the president over the sentencing of Trump associate Roger Stone.

CNN notes that Barr had previously watched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo be swept up in the president's Ukraine scandal -- damaging the State Department official's reputation -- and hoped to keep a low profile in the president's public disputes.
