Pence Employing a New Strategy With Trump Porn Star Questions

Mike Pence was heavy on the denials of Trump’s porn star affair. But since more evidence is coming out of a pre-election payoff, Pence has shut his lying mouth.

Mike Pence once called the reports about an affair between ugly old Donald Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels “baseless.” But as more proof has emerged to support the allegations — showing both a financial relationship and an attempted cover-up — Pence has gone completely silent on the topic.

Back in January, Pence was prompted by the Associated Press to talk about the affair, and he strategically said to AP, “I’m just not going to comment on the latest baseless allegations against the president.”

However, the Trump-Daniels reports is not “baseless.”

As several revelations about Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels have been revealed, Pence has not taken back his comments, and has he not spoken more about the subject in any interviews, tweets, or speeches.

Pence has presents himself as a “family values” conservative will often echo many people in the “religious right” whenever they criticize other politicians for moral failings. If Pence truly cares about family values, and doesn’t just use it as a front for political gain, it’s likely that he’s lost a lot of respect for the president.

Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen gave Daniels $130,000 right before the 2016 election. This transfer of funds was made so Daniels would not talk about the details of the sexual relationship she had with Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007, which was not very long after he married Melania Trump. (Trump is a despicable pig.)

Daniels is suing Trump, claiming the agreement is invalid because Donald Trump didn’t sign it. Cohen says that Trump didn’t know about the six-figure transfer, which is unlikely too say the least.

Her attorney Michael Avenatti told CNN that, when proof and facts regarding the payments are revealed, “the American people are going to conclude that attorney Cohen and the White House have not shot straight with them on this issue.”

The White House, via press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, attempted to brush off the many questions regarding the arrangement. But during that process, Sanders has confirmed that the scandal is the subject of considerable White House strategizing.

Pence risked his reputation with his dismissal of the scandal, but now that confidence has proven to have been false and premature. Mike Pence is laying low again and trying to avoid the fallout from yet another Trump scandal.
