Note: President Trump has denied any sexual activity with Stormy Daniels, and considering his fastidious nature, I’m inclined to believe him. Does it matter to me when considering a run for President. In short, no.

“Real Time” host Bill Maher warned the Democrats on his show Friday that if they fail to remember history, they are doomed to repeat it.
They’re all thinking that they’ve “finally got him,” when it comes to former President Donald Trump over the prosecution filed by Alvin Bragg about money allegedly paid to Stormy Daniels.
Maher pointed out how America didn’t hold the “sex scandal” against Bill Clinton regarding Monica Lewinsky when it came to voting, and that they seemed to ignore his perjury. Clinton got impeached, but then he still had a high approval rating.
“This whole ‘going after the president for f—ing around’ thing — I’ve seen this movie before. It was called ‘Kill Bill,’ and America did not like it the first time.”
“The Republicans exposed him as a dirty, filthy, disgusting sex-doer. And when they were done with him, he had an approval rating of 73%,” Maher said. “This despite every Republican on every TV station for two years saying, ‘What do we tell the children?’ And those children are today’s millennials who, according to polls, don’t know anything about it and don’t care.”
“And as I watched the circus around our latest horny ex-president… it seems worth asking the Democrats having gone through this yourselves, what don’t you get about sex scandals don’t work on presidents?” Maher continued. “Because no matter what the underlying legal reasons are that underpin a sex scandal, to the average person, it’s just always going to be about sex. Nothing can compete. Law is boring. It’s the constitutional equivalent of golf.” [….]
Unlike with Clinton and Lewinsky, both Trump *and* Daniels (in a letter statement she wrote and released) say there was no affair. It was her lawyer that talked her into lying about it. Also unlike Clinton and Lewinski, voters have years of watching accusation after accusation against Trump turn out to not only be lies, but projections of what the Dems were doing themselves. They can see that this is the Dems engaging in election interference by weaponizing the legal system. Anyone without TDS can see the obvious, and are getting awfully tired of it. As for the Dems, I think they are scared of Trump running because they know that this time, no matter how much they try to buy and steal another election, it likely will still not be enough to succeed. They failed back in 2016 and never got over it.

Well stated, Farmer!
ps, Maher has a good point, but I still find him objectionable.
