Media Claimed Trump "Had" Stormy Daniels Spank Trump With a Magazine On Whose Cover He Appeared, But Stormy Daniels Said She Did It On Her Own Initiative As a Joke

What they claimed, to gin up interest:

While mulling a U.S. Senate bid in 2009, porn actress Stormy Daniels told political advisers that her alleged sexual affair with Donald Trump included spanking the future president with an issue of Forbes, per a Thursday report by Mother Jones. In a May 2009 email exchange between two Louisiana political operatives, an unnamed adviser told Democratic operative Andrea Dubé that during their alleged affair in 2006, Daniels "says one time [Trump] made her sit with him for three hours watching 'shark week.' Another time he had her spank him with a Forbes magazine."

What image did that call to mind? For me, it was Trump on all fours on a bed demanding that Stormy Daniels spank him.

They claimed he "had her" spank him -- he made her spank him.

The reality? Or, at least the reality of Daniels' actual claims? She did it on her own initiative as a joke. Per the 60 Minutes transcript:

Stormy Daniels: Ummm (LAUGH) it started off-- all about him just talking about himself. And he's like-- "Have you seen my new magazine?"

Anderson Cooper: He was showing you his own picture on the cover of a magazine.

Stormy Daniels: Right, right. And so I was like, "Does this-- does this normally work for you?" And he looked very taken-- taken back, like, he didn't really understand what I was saying. Like, I was-- does, just, you know, talking about yourself normally work?" And I was like, "Someone should take that magazine and spank you with it." (LAUGH) And I'll never forget the look on his face. He was like--

Anderson Cooper: What-- what was his look?

Stormy Daniels: Just, I don't think anyone's ever spoken to him like that, especially, you know, a young woman who looked like me. And I said, you know, "Give me that," and I just remember him going, "You wouldn't." "Hand it over." And-- so he did, and I was like, turn around, drop 'em."

Anderson Cooper: You-- you told Donald Trump to turn around and take off his pants.

Stormy Daniels: Yes.

Anderson Cooper: And did he?

Stormy Daniels: Yes. So he turned around and pulled his pants down a little -- you know had underwear on and stuff and I just gave him a couple swats.

Anderson Cooper: This was done in a joking manner.

The people feeding the media its lines have a tendency to "tease" a story by overselling it to the dupes they get to write it up for them, just like a movie's teaser will sometimes be misleading as to what kind of movie it is and even feature material not in the movie at all.

We saw this happen with the Pee Pee Party Dossier; now it's going on with Stormy Daniels.

Strange coincidence, eh?
