The country needs to listen to Stormy Daniels’ story and stop the wave of personal attacks, which she doesn’t deserve, writes Sydney Leathers in the Independent. The way that sex workers are denigrated in society is shameful. Much attention is focused on their apparent moral failings, while ignoring those of the politicians who get into bed with them with wives and kids at home. Daniels is incredibly brave and justified in sharing her story. Women like her don’t seek fame, it’s simply not worth the ensuing witch hunt, but justice and having their truths told. Holding men like Donald Trump accountable for their actions is a good thing.
Stormy Daniels’ allegations have gotten far too much traction in the media and aren’t really worth all this buzz, believes Paul Mulshine of NewJersey.com. Politicians’ personal and sex lives should not be a matter of such public discussion, even when concerning President Trump. The apparent encounter occurred a long time ago and was entirely consensual. It appears that Daniels may be seeking attention by revealing details, like having spanked him with a magazine. Accusations that the payment made to her counts as a campaign contribution have also been dismissed. This story has been exaggerated to hurt the president.
