Consider what Stormy does to make a living

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion After viewing the interview of Stormy Daniels by Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes,” I was shaking my head trying to understand what I had just seen. It reminded me of the ridiculousness of Sen. Orin Hatch grilling Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearings talking about Long John Dong.This entire situation is entirely out of context. There should have been images all over the set of what she does for a living, albeit with a lot of black censor marks to cover up the images. Then we would have a better idea of what we are dealing with than some “poor me” dumbstruck blonde who is the victim of being taken advantage of by a big bad lawyer and his rich client.  Quite frankly it was like one boob asking another boob stupid questions about consenting adults having sex. Has 60 Minutes gone to the level of Jerry Springer?I’m going out on a limb here because I believe most people have no idea what goes on in the porn, oops, adult entertainment industry. It can be quite overwhelming to an individual experiencing it for the first time on DVD or the Internet. Having been in the video rental business for 24 years, and yes, we rented adult video movies, I know firsthand all about the business. First and foremost, it’s a money-making industry. If anyone on their right mind doesn’t believe that Stormy Daniels isn’t looking for a larger payday, then we weren’t watching the same interview.Do any of us really believe that a man, yes of the Donald Trump stature and reputation, could resist the temptation being alone in a hotel suite with a porn star? Oops, I meant to say adult film actress.Bob BeliveGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more
