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

GOP strategist Rick Wilson, Brooke Baldwin and Paris Dennard

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.

Trump tells supporters he won’t be ‘stupid’ enough for peaceful transition of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump continued to spread debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election during a Friday night campaign rally in Virginia.

Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
