Members of the so-called “mainstream” media work every day to drive Donald Trump from office.
And they thought Stormy Daniels held the smoking gun to bring him down once and for all.
But Donald Trump shut down their plan to impeach him with just one word.
The media has fixated on Daniels’ claim to have carried on a one night affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and then received $130,000 in hush money one month before the 2016 election.
CBS’ ‘60 Minutes’ floated the crackpot theory that this could constitute a FEC violation.
The left day-dreamed about Trump being removed from office for orchestrating a cover up that was an election violation.
Trump addressed this story head on when he met with reporters on Air Force One during a flight back from an event in West Virginia.
A reporter quizzed Trump if he knew about the $130,000 payment from his attorney Michael Cohen to Daniels.
Trump simply responded “No.”
The Daily Caller reports:
“Trump claimed he did not know his personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in order to bind her to a non-disclosure agreement, which barred her from speaking about the affair in the future. The president also claimed that he did not authorize the payment to Daniels.
“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael,” Trump said of the payment.
Cohen paid Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election on October 28, 2016. The NDA and the payment later was revealed by The Wall Street Journal in January 2018.
Daniels later granted an interview to CBS’s “60 minutes” in which she described the affair in vivid detail.”

The Daniels story is a dud.
The press relentlessly hyped her ‘60 Minutes’ interview, but she offered no proof of her affair and said she did not consider herself a victim.
Trump’s poll numbers held steady and some surveys such as CNN and Rasmussen even found his approval rating rising.
The President shooting down any rumors that he knew about or orchestrated a cover up is the final nail in the coffin in this ridiculous story.
