Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds appeared on CNN, where he was interviewed by the network’s John Berman.
They said the following to each other, as reported by Salon.com:
“This is a jarring juxtaposition, the president accused of writing payoffs to porn stars at the same time he’s conducting presidential business,” Berman said. “As you look at this, are you okay with all of this?”
“Most of us have a concern anytime you have a president who is trying to work through some very personal matters,” said Rounds. “I honestly think this president loves his family. I think it has as much to do with trying not to have public discussions about something that is, for him, a private matter that he didn’t want to have discussed with his family. I think that’s a lot of it.”
So, let me get this straight. The future president allegedly had a fling with an adult film actress. Then, while he’s running for the presidency of the United States, he paid her “hush money” to keep quiet about an event that he continues to insist never took place.
According to one of POTUS’s allies in the Senate, he paid the money out of “love for his family.”
Well, alrighty. I happen to believe that Donald Trump took that tumble with Stormy Daniels.
That said, I believe a man who truly loves his family wouldn’t have cheated on his third wife — who had just given birth to the president’s fifth child — in the manner that I believe he did.
