First Thoughts on Trump’s Recently Exposed Extra-Marital Affairs

While corporate media outlets are desperately, and unsuccessfully, trying to connect Trump with ‘Russia’ and ‘Putin’ in the public mind, they seem to have largely ignored recent disclosures about Trump’s extra-marital affairs. To be clear- I am not suggesting that harping on Trump’s extra-marital affairs, or “character”, is a winning strategy as even the most ardent boot-lickers of HRC know only too well. Analyzing Trump’s extra-martial sexscapades and their utter lack of impact on Trump’s supporters and overall ratings is however an amusing diversion from the “russian interference in our sacred elections” bullshit pumped out by corporate media every single day.

Two women have so far definitely indicated that they had affairs of various lengths with Trump after he married his current wife in 2005. One of them, an adult performer named Stormy Daniels, did initially attempt to deny a relationship with Trump. She had been apparently paid about 130,000 dollars by Trump’s lawyer to sign a NDA about her affair with his client. However, it appears that Michael Cohen broke his end of the NDA by publicly confessing to paying her. Consequently, Stormy Daniels is now shopping around for venues to broadcast her side of the story– for a nice amount of cash, I am sure.

The second woman who has confirmed that she had an affair with Trump is Karen McDougal, a former playboy nude model. To be honest, neither of these two stories about Trump’s extra-martial escapades are exactly new. Rumors about imminent public disclosure of both these (and other) stories have been floating around the internet since Trump became a front-runner during the 2016 republican presidential primary. While neither of these two women publicly came out with their stories in 2016, it is highly doubtful that such disclosure at that time would have changed the outcome of that election.

Face it.. Trump’s interest in attractive young women not currently married to him has been a fixture of pop culture for over thirty years. As long as he did not physically force them to have sex, even the disclosure that he made those women dress up to resemble his eldest daughter would not have a worthwhile negative effect on his public image. In fact, the public would be far more shocked to find out that Trump was a one-woman man than if photos and videos of him having sex with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal at the same time were released. So far, I have largely restated known and obvious facts about this situation. Let us now try to analyze the situation as we understand it today and try to make some predictions about where things might end up.

1] Trump’s current wife, Melania, has almost certainly known about her husband’s philandering since the very beginning of their relationship. It is fairly well understood by the public that her marriage to Trump occurred largely because he was a billionaire and she was a single model past her late-20s. She got to play a billionaire’s wife and he got a trophy wife who was decades younger than him. Many of you might have noticed that their relationship appears to be far closer to quid pro quo business interaction than anything resembling a typical marriage. Then again, it is what it is.

But, will Melania leave Donald before his first presidential term is over? Perhaps.. but not because of his philandering. The simple fact is that she is a nobody without her marriage to Trump. While she could certainly live a very comfortable existence after divorcing Trump, it would pale in comparison to the status and attention she has received since marrying him. Without him, she is just another wannabe NYC socialite with an European accent, lots of plastic surgery and a face-full of Botox.

2] One of the main idea promoted by websites and YT channels about “Game” or the “PUA” lifestyle is that male looks and style matter a lot. While I do not deny that looks do matter for men, it is clear that status, money and fame matter as much if not more than looks. An old tall obese guy with an atrocious hair weave seems to have no problems getting fairly attractive and much younger women to have sex with him. More importantly, they do not care that he is already married or not buying them unusually expensive gifts. How many men who resemble Trump but work in “middle-management” at some faceless company in your local suburban office park would get the time of day from these same women?

In other words, Trumps’s success with women is largely a consequence of him being a loud rich asshole with some talent for inserting himself into mediocre controversies. And guess what.. he is not alone in that segment. If you have been alive for more than two decades, you must have seen many examples of this strategy succeeding- albeit on a smaller scale. The simple and somewhat unpleasant fact is that possessing money, status, fame and the willingness to be brazen about them will always beat looks, dress style, devotion, kindness and all that other bullshit which many men still seem to believe in.

Will write another one about this topic based on comments and future developments.

    Given what we know about Trump, I don’t think anyone is surprised about this.

    The most interesting point is the failure of the Christen Right leader to speak out or criticize Trump for this. Trump is probably the most un-Christen US president in modern history. He clearly has never attended church or studied the bible. He lies constantly and without shame. The leaders of the Christen Right continue to support him for one reason. They love the judges he is appointing. They hope he will appoint judges to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    If this is going to make any difference, it is with white women and it will only make a small difference.

    The “christian right” and “moral majority” types have always been a bunch of greedy hypocritical wankers, and you should have figured it by now.

      “The “christian right” and “moral majority” types have always been a bunch of greedy hypocritical wankers, and you should have figured it by now.”

      I realized long ago what hypocrites the Christen right was, but Donald Trump has exposed the moral rot in the leadership of the Christen right and has aid it bare for everyone to see.

      I would argue most of the President’s only give lip service to the Christian faith and it’s followers. Trump is definitely the most blatantly secular. After Trump, it is clear that the right wing Christians of this nation are mostly full of sht. They don’t really believe in the sht they preach.

    It’s just the typical “women claim one thing … and do another” situation.
    If Melania was in her 20s she might have broken up with “The Donald”, but the reality is she doesn’t know what the market is like for her NOW if she does that.
    Besides, with the amount of relationships a woman gets into to get close to a Presidential candidate, she’s pretty much blown through her ability to be loyal to any man after.

    16 partners is the magic number for the vast majority of women in a study for scientists to make the conclusion that they view every relationship after as a pure financial calculation.

    In short, if she’s your age and looking for a man … it’s because none wanted to keep her for the long term.

    Sex has been put on this weird pedestal here in America. I would guess mainly as result of our “Christian” roots. Game is very important, but also just as important is pragmatism. Reality is what it is, regardless of what we want to believe.

    The predominantly white schlub Christian male majority wants to believe that his wife, daughter, sister etc is some righteous angel. The reality is, women will fck men they aren’t attracted to for all manner of reasons. This goes back to Harvey Weinstein. People are shocked his could coerce so many women, but it’s not surprising at all.

    Women trade sex for what they desire. This has been the case for thousands of years, whether the Christian Right will believe it or not. Trump likes young pussy. So do I. The absurdity is that a porn star tried to feign righteous indignation for having sex with Trump.

    Anyhow on the subject of indignation:
    Leading #MeToo sexual harassment campaigner accused of groping man
    Cristina Garcia allegedly squeezed buttocks of male staffer from another politician’s office

    It is not so much disgusting that this is true and that “society” especially women are “immoral”. What is so disgusting is that multiple generations of people and especially men have fallen for the scam of “morality”. This is why this civilization cannot last. When the individual relinquishes his personal resolve in exchange for the for illusion of security sold with “morality” or the “greater good” he submits himself into slavery for whomever or whatever is in power to define “morality” and enslave him to perform for the “greater good” which he does not define. The individual and his personal resolve, his personal passion to do whatever he is compelled to do, is the building block of a “free” civilization. He is like a grain of sand in a sand castle. We now have quick sand.

      Great response. I mentally vomit every time I hear some racial “purist” or some traditional minded idiot say “marriage is the building block for building civilization” bullshit. Traditionalism is what gave us all this current state (not that I’m complaining about the current state – as I am an alpha who has no problem dealing with women). Women, like anyone else, are who they are. These “Disney myths” and other assorted lame-ass fairy tales is what fucks people up.

    In terms of attracting a woman – self confidence matters most. More than money. More than looks.

      Ah, a deluded or “trying to conform” person needs clarification. Watch this:

      Notice the women commenting after. This guy did nothing to “attract” them – this is a video after all, not an interactive chat -, his looks spoke for him.

    AD a little OT here but who do you think is more racist? White men or women? I go through a lot of non white message boards but they all seem to give a pass to white women when my observation tells me that it is white women who are the real racists and consider access to them as some sort of privilege. Lol. What may be the cause of this
    Also just coz a white woman sleeps with you does not mean she is not a racist, racists have never had problem with letting race come in the middle of an orgasm. Also I find the reasoning perverse that just coz a white woman sleeps with non white it means she is not racist or does not harbor prejudice.

      The rule of thumb is how much higher or lower down the socioeconomic ladder the guy is who she “allows” to have sex with her.
      If he’s a crime boss, she likes the status of being a moll, but also has the handy excuse “he threatened my family and I had to barter my body for their safety”. Of course the fun starts after she monkeybranches to the next drug dealer … just how many people can threaten her family before she can no longer keep them safe with her curves?

      Women usually talk about how “non-superficial” they are when the guy is taller, richer or more educated than them. If it were really true homeless guys would have no problem trolling for pussy.
