Watched the interview with Stormy Daniels on 60 Minutes last night. I was somewhat shocked that Anderson Cooper actually grilled her a few times. I was expecting her to get a soft toss interview but it was a bit more than that. As for the substance, I’m not sure. Her motivation is money and she almost admitted that. Her attorney was not very impressive, don’t know that I’d be comfortable with him representing me.
Did you hear about the man from Greensboro who was arrested, handcuffed with hands behind his back, and placed in a patrol car ? He was able to steal the car and is still at large. When they catch him, maybe they should put him in a straight jacket. When the case is settled, he might consider joining the circus.
I’m pulling for Loyola !
