By now, the media’s extended coverage of porn star Stormy Daniels and her affair with President Trump has gone above and beyond a fever pitch.
And some of it is absolutely insane. Cosmopolitan, that politically influential publication known for its cutting-edge coverage of “The Glowy Skin Diet,” ran a piece on April 16 asking, “Will Stormy Daniels Run For Office – For Real This Time?”
Other outlets have sung their praises of Daniels, aka Stephanie Cliffords, calling her “an aspiring journalist,” “a very smart cat,” “fiercely funny,” and a “whistleblower.” And while other places have covered her brief stint running for senator of Louisiana in 2009 extensively, the suggestion that she might run again seems to be exclusive to Cosmopolitan. Linking back to an interview with Stormy Daniels in 2009, writer Christy Smith-Sloman stated that the porn star “is also a businesswoman” who was “passionate about the economy, health care, taxes, child protection and sex education.”
Three cheers for Stormy. Even though she “leaned towards the Libertarian party,” Smith-Sloman emphasized that Daniels was in fact a staunch admirer of Hillary Clinton. Daniels was quoted as saying, “I like Hillary. She’s a well-minded woman and she’s extremely knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects and carries herself with dignity.”
But alas, the Senate was not meant to be for Stormy – at that time. She was arrested after an “alleged domestic dispute” and didn’t have enough funds to continue her run for office.
But now is the best time for her to run for office, according to Cosmo’s Smith-Sloman. “Clifford has garnered widespread support … So the question remains: will we see Stormy take that support and launch a new run for office?”
Stop it. Get some help.
