She does do anal. It took only 15 seconds of research to find a clip.

I guess I'll have to take your word on that for now, but I may check later (for skepticism's sake of course!).

I would think that refusing to do anal might limit a porn star's opportunities and earning potential, but I'm not well versed on the economics of that business.

She means she quit doing that. Present tense, see?

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Firm Tied to Russian Oligarch Made Payments to Michael Cohen
A shell company that Michael D. Cohen used to pay hush money to a pornographic film actress received payments totaling more than $1 million from an American company linked to a Russian oligarch and several corporations with business before the Trump administration, according to documents and interviews. Financial records reviewed by The New York Times show that Mr. Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer and longtime fixer, used the shell company, Essential Consultants L.L.C., for an array of business activities that went far beyond what was publicly known. Transactions adding up to at least$4.4 million flowed through Essential Consultants starting shortly before Mr. Trump was elected president and continuing to this January, the records show.

Among the previously unreported transactions were payments last year of about $500,000 from Columbus Nova, an investment firm in New York whose biggest client is a company controlled by Viktor Vekselberg, the Russian oligarch. A lawyer for Columbus Nova, in a statement on Tuesday, described the money as a consulting fee that had nothing to do with Mr. Vekselberg. Other transactions described in the financial records include hundreds of thousands of dollars Mr. Cohen received from Fortune 500 firms with business before the Trump administration, as well as smaller amounts he paid for luxury expenses like a Mercedes-Benz and private club dues. References to the transactions first appeared in a document posted to Twitter on Tuesday by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star who was paid$130,000 by Essential Consultants to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Mr. Trump. The lawyer’s seven-page document, titled “Preliminary Report of Findings,” does not explain the source of his information but describes in detail dates, dollar amounts and parties involved in various dealings by Mr. Cohen and his company. Most of the transactions involved two banks: First Republic Bank and City National Bank.
"Consulting".

BTW, anyone need any consulting? I'd be more than happy to "consult" for a six-figure fee. I often wonder what exactly is the value that "consultants" provide. I'm sure that some of them are legit, because they can offer expert advice on some issues. Still, I wonder sometimes. Our company has had consultants, but I've never personally seen what exactly we got out of the deal. The president though seems to like them. He has some (IMO) unrealistic goals for the company.

This is probably not illegal (not that I'm a lawyer), but definitely "swampy".

Trump’s lawyer pitched himself as a fixer to Novartis and got paid $1.2 million Of course, a lot of people in Washington who "know people" in high places find a way to monetize their proximity to power.

It's pretty long but it's well argued in my opinion. The short version is this: Donald Trump, not Eliott Broidy had an affair with a Playboy Model (a different one), impregnated her, which she terminated, and paid $1.6 million through Cohen and the same lawyer who represented Stormy Daniels and the other Playboy Bunny. The larger figure is presumably because of the abortion, which his base might actually care about. He goes through a list of reasons why this hypothesis makes more sense than the story being reported. I'll just quote the bit that seems strongest to me: Broidy’s Actions Don’t Add Up Broidy’s behavior following the raid is simply inexplicable. The current assumption is that Broidy knew that his payments to Bechard (through the LLC) would eventually become public, given that they were now in the possession of the Feds. But in fact, it was far from certain that they would. Cohen’s lawyers and Trump’s lawyers were fighting to keep Cohen’s attorney-client communications confidential, and it is quite possible that Broidy’s payments would never come to light. And even if they did, he could surely deny to the press that they were his. Broidy claims to have paid$1.6 million to keep his affair with Bechard quiet. Why throw away that entire investment at the first sign that this secret might eventually be exposed? By reacting in the manner he did, Broidy ensured that what was still at the time only a worst-case scenario became an immediate certainty, as opposed to remaining a down-the-line possibility.
Why would he pay so much money to keep this thing quiet and then simply admit to it when asked by a reporter?

That's infinitely broad, but ok.

To expend upon my rhetorical question, Trump supporters don't care and no laws were broken. Meanwhile Stormy Daniels is so distraught by this public attention that she is appearing on SNL.

What's the goal, to show Trump as an adulterer or a womanizer? I don't think either is a secret.

### Re: Stormy Daniels

I agree that this is unlikely to have any impact on Trump supporters. As someone once said, he could shoot a person in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose his core supporters.

This is speculation of course, but what if we found out that he encouraged this woman to end her pregnancy? That seems like something that evangelicals would care about.

From another angle, what if we were to find out that this guy gave what amounts to a \$1.6 million dollar bribe to Trump, as well as being a fall guy for his affair, which is a sort of favor that if you were to put a price on it, doesn't seem like it would come cheap?

That is the one thing that might get those guys past the "at least he's not Hillary" barrier, but I wouldn't count on it.

If Trump was a Democrat, Stormy Daniels would be regarded as a woman of impeccable virtue.
