Skip to comments.Newsmax CEO & Trump Friend: Stormy Daniels Stuff Is a 'Political Hoax'
Posted on 03/25/2018 3:27:03 PM PDT by Kaslin
Newsmax CEO and apparent confidante of President Donald Trump, Chris Ruddy, sat down with ABC News This Week today to discuss a variety of issues facing the president. Aside from potential upcoming shifts in personnel management , perhaps the most revealing moment of the interview came when he was asked about Stormy Daniels.
Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has accused President Trump of having an affair with her prior to his 2016 presidential run. Stormy, politely put, is an adult film actress and also an exotic dancer. In other words, she is a porn star and stripper.
Tonight, in a supposed-tell all interview on CBS 60 Minutes, she will go into detail explaining the affair, an alleged cover up, and subsequent hush money as well as signed legal documents from Trumps attorney proving this is all true.
But, according to Ruddy, President Trump says this is all a political hoax.
OK, Chris. I want to turn to the presidents mindset about this interview with Stormy Daniels, the interview with Karen McDougal. Did he watch those interviews? And tell us what hes thinking, asked host Martha Raddatz.
Well, you know, I cant tell you everything hes thinking, I can only tell you what he told me. He said he thought that -- that much of the Stormy Daniels stuff was a political hoax. Again, those were his words, said Ruddy.
So he thinks theyre lying. Even though Stormy Daniels got $130,000, Raddazts asked for clarification.
Ruddy then questioned what exactly 60 Minutes is going to ask Stormy Daniels and pointed how thorough the media is being with Trumps alleged scandals, yet constantly give Democrats a pass on scandals of their own.
Ill let him characterize. You know, you have to look at this case. Youre a straightforward journalist. I really think youre fair-minded. When you watch this -- this interview on CBS, 60 Minutes, youre going to be looking for the same question Im looking for. Are they going to ask her Stormy, why did you hit -- hire a political hit Democratic attorney, Michael Avenatti, whos worked for 150 Democratic political campaigns, Joe Bidens campaign, worked for Rahm Emanuel," Ruddy posited.
"Whos operating on funding her tremendous public relations effort? And you know, at the bottom line, theres just never been a claim of harassment. So the president looks at this and I think hes looking at it like Im looking at it. This is politically motivated to hurt and embarrass him in some way. And you know what, the end of the day, the poll numbers for the president are up. Gallop has him at a record 40 percent, the Rasmussen at 48 percent approval. So I think the American people are really dismissing this as political -- political witch hunts, the Newsmax CEO questioned.
Ruddy's interview can be watched below.
I believe it’s a hoax too.
Hoax or not, I just don’t give a rat’s ass.
I predict a major backlash against the Media and Democrats for pushing this idiocy.
But we already knew that. She’s a porn slut trying to make a name for herself while keeping her clothes on. Never been a 60 Minutes fan but a homosexual who just lost his boyfriend interviewing a gold digging porn queen in hopes of bringing down the President of the United States is not something I’m interested in.
Just a sleazechick showing her low class, trying to pull some more cash out of a one night stand.
Her bad, not his.
What these idiots forget ... Billy Graham Christians stuck with the pervert bjClinton, they kept his pole numbers around 66% all through his presidency... There is NO comparison of the government funded and protected pervert, bjClinton, and ‘private’ citizen Trump.
Stormy need an IRS audit... along with her lawyers.
“I predict a major backlash against the Media and Democrats for pushing this idiocy.”
I pray you’re correct. But I’ve just never seen it happen before. They seem immune.
Everyone’s waiting, holding their breath, just to hear what some publicity seeking porn star has to say against this countries leader? Not here they aren’t!
Fake rack ?
I’m with you. I wouldn’t care if he cut taxes with a hooker on his lap. I want certain things done for this country, and I am not at all picky about who does them. I just want them done. And I think Trump wants them done, too, and that makes him... kind of like my mechanic. He fixes my car, and he’s reliable, and reasonably priced. I don’t care whether he cheats on his wife. I like him, and that’s kind of it.
Barack Hussein 0bama, the worst president ever.
She is not a porn “star”. Few had heard of her before this.
She is just one of the hundreds of porn industry workers.
And I don’t give a rat’s ass for Trump’s ALLEGED affairs, before he took office. Now if he seduces a young white house intern on company time, I may not approve.
Stormy is only person’s problem, if true. Melania!
Hate is all they have in them.
Martha Radditz: cried on nationwide TV election night because Hitlery lost.
WHERE was this during the 2016 primaries and general campaign???? It would have been very damaging to Trump back then.......if it were true. That is why I think it is a hoax because it would have easily surfaced in 2016 especially after the Access Hollywood tape.
They remind me of a cow.
My feelings as well.
