Anthony Scaramucci Claims Trump Paying Off A Porn Star Is ‘Presidential,’ CNN Panel Explodes…

A CNN political analyst confronted former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday, questioning whether he believes paying off a porn star is “presidential.”

Scaramucci defended Donald Trump, saying the president is “obviously very presidential,” but that the panelists on CNN’s “State of the Union” just don’t like his style.

Liberal commentator Bakari Sellers quickly shot back at Scaramucci.

“If Barack Obama paid off a porn star $130,000, if he cheated on three wives. I mean, listen the list goes on and on and on,” he said.

“If he had a handful of advisers that were either indicted or pled guilty, then there would be pitchforks in front of the White House. Presidential is not something that’s associated with President Trump.”

Scaramucci predicted Trump would win again in 2020, in keeping with a comment Trump made Saturday night at a campaign rally where he said his supporters would be bored if he were always presidential.

“But you can’t rebut anything that I’ve said about being presidential,” Sellers said. “Paying off a porn star is presidential?”

Scaramucci said Trump didn’t pay off a porn star and continued to defend Trump for his actions.

“Michael Cohen can say that definitively…It was paid by Michael Cohen with Michael Cohen’s money,” Scaramucci said, referring to Trump’s personal lawyer.

Michael Cohen has acknowledged he paid Daniels $130,000 as part of a hush agreement shortly before the 2016 election.
Daniels made headlines again this week with her new lawsuit against Trump over a non-disclosure agreement she says the president never signed.

Without the agreement, Daniels says she could speak freely and share information about the extramarital affair she claims she had with Trump.

The White House has denied the affair and said Trump was unaware of the payment by Cohen to the actress’ attorney.
