Stormy Daniels makes stunning accusation, but there’s one thing missing
Sunday was the big day for Democrats desperate to find any way to undo the election of President Donald Trump.
As they wait for Bob Mueller to find anything on the president, they glued their eyes and ears to a “60 Minutes” interview with porn star Stormy Daniels, wondering if this was the scandal that would end the presidency.
Aside from the alleged affair she had with President Trump, 10 years ago, Daniels did not offer much that would do anything to have the president removed from office, except for one accusation that had nothing to back it.
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” Daniels told Anderson Cooper. “And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”
Cooper asked Daniels if she took that as a threat.

“Absolutely,” she said. “I was rattled. I remember going into the workout class. And my hands are shaking so much, I was afraid I was gonna drop her.”
But did she call the police to report this threat that had her shaken to the point where she feared she would drop her child?
She did not because, she said, she was scared.
It is literally her word. She has no name of the man and she offered no proof.
We only have the world of a woman who took $130,000 in hush money and then broke the agreement after President Trump won the election because, presumably, a book deal or movie would be far more lucrative now than the $130,000.
Whether or not the affair happened, Daniels’ word, which she has broken in the form of reneging on her non-disclosure agreement, does not mean too much.
