    Does anyone actually care about who Trump did or did not have sex with? I sure don't. I didn't care who Clinton had sex with (and that was while he was the President) and I just don't think it matters (at least to me, as I am sure Melania has a different opinion) who Trump had sex with before he became the President, so long as it was consensual, which these latest couple of affairs apparently were.

    Had I been alive during the JFK era, I wouldn't have cared either (and my understanding is that he put Trump and Clinton to shame if you are grading affairs by quantity or quality, so to speak).

    Is there a reason we should care, or is it just more noise distracting from more important issues?

    If anyone actually cared, I'm sure Trump would be in more trouble by now. It does seem odd to me though that when Clinton had an affair it was cause for impeachment and mass outrage, but as long as Trump had a number of them, nobody cares. I don't know if it'd be any different if Trump's affairs occurred during his presidency or not. It seems that Trump's set a new standard of acceptable behavioural lows in every possible way that nothing in that respect really matters any more.

    At the same time, there's still plenty of outstanding questions with respect to Russia. And yet everybody's relatively more fixated on the Stormy thing? What a surprise ...

    However the $130,000 he allegedly illegally paid to get her to not comment makes a difference.

    Honestly, with both Trump and Clinton, I wouldn't have a problem with them screwing around if it were not for the fact that they were married and made an oath and contract (marriages are contracts) to only be with their wife.

    If he'd been with Stormy before marrying Melania, I'd say "So what? Lots of men would love to sleep with a porn star. He actually pulled it off. More power to him".

    It's only because he's married when either of them slept around that I have an issue.

    That said, his cheating on his wife is the least of my issues with Trump.
    I honestly wouldn't care that much if it wasn't embarrassing the Office of the President of the United States, and to a lessor extent the country.
    I had the same issue and limited concern with Bill Clinton when I was in high school.

    I'd have to agree with you there, cheating on anything is morally wrong and what will it lead to next? :beer:

    Without a doubt one of the best things about the Trump administration is it is showing how crazy the left is. Seeing normally rational people hanging on every word of a former porn star as if she is a messiah is hysterical. What makes it funnier is her own words and the timeline of what she is saying make no sense.

    However, in answer to the original question, No. Nobody cares. It happened before he was President and before he even was running for office. Did he sleep with her, I have no doubt of that. Do I feel bad for his wife, yes I do. Do I think it impacts the economy and his job as President, not even a smidge.

    My prediction is we are going to be living with the same level of hysteria for either 3 or 7 more years. I don't think they are ever going to be able to pin any criminal activity on him.

    I would say the corruption and litany of other things Trump and his administration are involved with show his critics are often quite sane.

    To the pornstar, if she was paid off or threatened during the time in which Trump's campaign took place that makes her part of the dialogue rather than something to be ignored as old news.

    Additionally it exposes those who continue to back Trump and claims they do so for reasons relating to some moral high ground for being all the more hypocritical.
