Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 8 March 2018 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Stormy Warning. The media ramped up again yesterday to further inflame the scandal surrounding the President (Trump), his personal attorney(Cohen), and a porn star (Daniels). The center of the storm, President Trump, is being challenged in court by the porn star, Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with Mr. Trump before he was President; she also alleges that the “hush money” agreement she was asked to sign by attorney Michael Cohen was invalid since Mr. Trump himself never signed it. Ms. Daniels now wants to “tell her story”; she has hinted that she has “images”. It’s all so…….messy. Trying to tap dance around the questions that were tossed at her in at the daily White House press briefing yesterday, Sarah Sanders flunked Deflection 101, and raised more questions than she settled. Coming on the heels of the Gary Cohn registration, the whole thing is unwanted attention on an ill-advised adventure.
A huge winter storm has covered the northeast with three feet of snow in some places. So much for an early spring.
