CNN Claims This ‘Sordid Detail’ from Stormy Daniels Will Hurt Trump With Women Voters

Mark Preston CNN This Morning 5-10-24 On CNN This Morning, CNN senior political analyst Mark Preston said that porn star Stormy Daniels claiming in court that Donald Trump didn’t use a condom (“protection”) during their alleged sexual encounter constitutes a “sordid detail” that will hurt Trump with women voters in swing states. 

Preston:

I assume now that there are women in these five or six states that we’re looking at now, whether it’s Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania or Nevada, Arizona, or Georgia who perhaps would have thought about voting for President Trump.

But then they, see this, and not to be very sordid. But this is pretty sordid. I would assume if I cheated on my wife, I mean, she’d kill me, but that would be one thing. She’d probably kill me twice.

There’s, another thing, though, to, I believe to cheat on your wife and then have it publicly come out that you didn’t use protection. And I think that that is — I’m telling you though — that is something that I think will hit home.

Host Kasie Hunt gleefully agreed with Preston, chuckling as she said, “It’s all very sordid.” No qualifiers from anyone on the panel about the porn star’s claims being “alleged.” The veracity of her testimony was seemingly taken as a given. And CNN has been gavel-to-gavel “sordid” during Stormy Daniels Week.

Meghan Hays, a former Biden aide, was also only too happy to agree, saying that come September and October, those sordid “details” would be highlighted in TV ads targeting moderate women voters.

Preston should know a thing or two about sordid sexual details in the lives of prominent politicians. He’s a former aide to . . . Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Note: When Preston said that his wife would “kill” him if he cheated on her, a laughing Hunt interjected, “I would hope so.” Fine. Now imagine the reaction if a woman on the panel said that her husband would kill her if she cheated on him. 

Here’s the transcript.

MARK PRESTON: We’re seeing what’s happening in the courtroom right now, and we’re paying a lot attention to these sordid details. In the court of law, I don’t think the sordid details are going to matter, and perhaps could backfire, what have you.

Court of public opinion, though. I mean, we are talking about trying to — I assume now, that there are women in these five or six states that we’re looking at now, whether it’s Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania or Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, you know, who perhaps would have thought about voting for President Trump.

But then they, see this, and, and, and not to be very sordid — but this is pretty sordid. 

KASIE HUNT: [Chuckling] It’s all very sordid. 

PRESTON: I would assume if I cheated on my wife, that would, I mean, she’d kill me, but that would be one thing. 

HUNT: I would hope so [laughs.]

PRESTON: She’d probably kill me twice. [Extended Hunt laugh.]

There’s, another thing, though. To, I believe, to cheat on your wife and then have it publicly come out that you didn’t use protection. And I think that that is — I’m telling you though — that is something that I think will hit home. You’re laughing, Meghan, but it’s true. I think that that is something that, there’s a trust level. There’s the moralistic level, you know, issue, that people wrestle with. I’m wrestling with that right now on TV.

HUNT: I am too, for the record.

MEGHAN HAYS: To your point about these five or six states that they’re trying to play to. Those are the Nikki Haley voters that are these moderate women in suburban cities that are going to vote. Who are they going to vote for? They are the undecided. 

And these are the things that are going to come up. And these are the ads that the Super PACs and other people are going to put forth come September and October to remind these women of these details.
