Is it just me or did we hear whispers of this story

last year, not the details just the fact National Enquirer buried an affair for him? I think the pay off is new.
Our daily dose of chaos is enough to make us crazy.
I swear I've heard this story before, it's making me feel even more nuts.

1. Yes I recall that too.

Just more evidence how much help Trump.got.from the media. Would ANY paper have buried a story for Clinton, even if her best friend owned the paper?

4. The National Enquirer is Trump's personal supermarket loudspeaker to his trash

5. Wall St Journal published article 4 days before the 2016 election providing basic details

and it went under the radar by rest of media.

However Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker has now been able to get verification and details directly from the woman and her close associate who was involved in arranging her payment. The new article is interesting for the reasons she gave as to why she ended the affair (shame and guilt and realizing he was not as charming as she had thought, but instead a mean insulting racist) and all the machinations involved in arranging her silence and her reasons for feeling emboldened to speak out due to the "metoo" movement.

Her story is more revealing than the Stormy Daniels account, as she met and dined with Trump sons on several occasions and was taken around to Trump properties during the affair. He was involved with Stormy Daniels simultaneously while also pursuing and harrassing several other women at the same time.

6. You are right! We did hear abt this last year

 

before and just after the election last year...

Just like we heard abt an FBI guy being removed from Mueller's team last summer but over the last 2 or 3 months we found out his name (Peter Stroxyk) and that he talked Comey into re-opening the Clinton email probe long enough to search Weiner's computer...
