Now they're saying "people familiar with both parties" are the sources. Daily Beast apparently had it last year but couldn't get her on the record before she clammed up. They got 3 mutual friend sources.

I wonder if they had a prenup and if Donald's infidelity is melania's very expensive ticket out.

Whether he did or did not 'have sex with that woman' is not proven by him paying her off. Donald giving her $100k is like you giving someone $1 to just go away. I once had a 'malpractice' claim made against me. Although my insurance company agreed that there was no malpractice, the aggrieved party was willing to accept $1500. So my lawyer asked me "how many hours are you willing to miss work to defend yourself?" The insurance company sent the check.

I don't think all this is a big deal so I agree with you.
There are a lot of things that disgust me about Donald Trump.
This really isn't one of them
Its his money, he can do whatever he wants with it
I'm not Melania so I could care less about Trumps consensual sex or paid for sex

I hope every president gets a blow job in the oval office. I know I would. That was one of the few things I liked about Clinton.

What's with all the hang ups about sex between consenting adults, anyway?

Melania is a beautiful woman. Her and Don are married. I hope they have crazy passionate sex regularly. It's healthy, and what life is about for those that are able and have opportunity.

Back in the day, if I got a new car, I would want to have sex in it, same for a new boat, also the house by the lake. It would be pretty exciting doing it in the oval office. Find something else to criticize the leaders of the free world on.

I don't think Melania has any complaint coming.

Donald very publicly partied on Ivana for years, got Marla pregnant while married to Ivana. Many, many women in pictures with him, not just poses.

Donald started sleeping with Melania (again very publicly), who was a nude model and also did nude lesbian scenes, while married to Marla.

I doubt she was even able to get an adultery penalty clause in the pre-nup (no way they don't have one). She knew what she was marrying. Maybe he swore off. Seems much more likely, if he was truthful to her, he didn't.

For that matter, anybody who voted for him knew this about him. It's been everywhere for decades. So why they even bothered to pay off these women, I don't know, since it seems to have been consensual. Maybe it was the non-consensual p&$$y grabbing and 20+ harassment complaints that made them think it needed to be hushed up.

But I'm hoping it chips away at his base of Evangelicals who somehow ignored this in the first place. I doubt it will cost him very many.

And I agree with you guys. Consensual relations between adults is not news, or even a matter for other people to judge. Doesn't stop a large number from doing so.

Do porn stars frequently get payoffs from rich celebrities?

Is 100k the going rate to have a confidential 'encounter' with a porn star?

Are we supposed to believe or disbelieve Steve Bannon's alleged statement that Trump's lawyer "took care" of "a hundred women" during the campaign?

Did they all get the 100,000 payoff? (10 mil in total)

Depends. For politicians who run on family values where they don't practice what they preach, it's a big deal (one assumes) to some of the constituents. So, in that case, it can be important in elections.

Edit -- I see you addressed it.
