Stop me if you have heard this story before…

So we have now learned that President Donald Trump apparently had a sexual affair with a nude model, while married to Melania, and then had his buddies pay to cover it up during the presidential election. Only this time the woman is not porn star “Stormy Daniels,” but Playboy playmate Karen McDougal, and the entity paying her off during the campaign (at least directly) was not his lawyer, but the National Enquirer, which is owned by a Trump pal.

There is a lot of new information in Ronan Farrow’s New Yorker report which, in a rational world, would be extremely scandalous and significant. However, since if we ever really lived in such a place we clearly no longer do so now, it is clear that this story will have little, if any, real impact politically.
