The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

The trained hamsters of the main stream media are arguably the most powerful of the four constituencies that are intent on destroying the Trump presidency, regardless of the damage it does to the country, our body politic, and indirectly to both domestic and foreign policy improvements that have occurred since his election. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the once respected news journal, CBS's 60 Minutes, paraded a porn star who had consensual sex with Donald Trump 10 years before he was president. Salacious content (a porn star, for God's sake, although I think she's the first porn star I've ever seen who didn't show any cleavage)) and silly accusations of a "cover-up" and "threats" make for great TV, but really? The porn star works in a seedy business among seedy people who often do seedy things. Something tells me that her demur suggestion that she felt "threatened" is just a bit much, but then again, #MeToo is the meme de jour, so why not use it?

On the other hand ... there is little question that Donald Trump is a "dog." He has had three wives, multiple affairs, and a spotty record with women—all before he became president. He was elected even though most voters knew his past sexual and marital history. It's perfectly reasonable to object to his behavior and to use it to question his character, but his behavior was and is no secret. He did not dupe the electorate into voting for him by suggesting he was a saint.

What is ironic and obvious is that there have been other sitting presidents who were also dogs, yet because their politics coincided the politics of the trained hamsters of the media, they were given a pass, even though their sexual peccadillos happened while they were in office. JFK appears to have had sex with any woman that was to his liking while he was president (Marilyn Monroe comes to mind). The media hushed it all up. Lyndon Johnson is said to have had affairs while in office, but the media looked the other way. And of course, Bill Clinton was a "dog" as well and the media, although they were forced to cover the story of his affair with an White House intern, acted more as his apologists than his investigators. All of these men were Democrats—is there a pattern emerging here?

All that has changed because—Trump.

Whether the four constituencies realize it or not, we're on a very slippery slope. There will be unintended (and very negative) consequences if they succeed in their attempt to destroy Trump's presidency. But Trump Derangement Syndrome rules and the consequence is that a porn star has now become the latest female heroine for many within the four constituencies. If it wasn't so sad, it would actually be funny.
