“Resistance” Playboy Payoff Recording Was An Overcooked Nothing-Burger

Another day, another lame attempt by the liberal left to insinuate that our President is unfit for office, delusional, maniacal, or some sort of cretinous creature hellbent on racism, sexism, and the destruction of America.

To be quite honest, it’s not only becoming second nature to simply assume a certain amount of “resistance” in our everyday lives…it has become completely normal.  We now recalibrate the way our minds interpret the “news” in order to account for this wild, liberal lean.  This sort of slant simply is…and it’s doesn’t matter what your definition of the word “is” is.

Where we used to talk about a little blue dress and a cigar, we’re now talking about Donald Trump paying money to extortionist exhibitionists through the office of his former lawyer, Michael Cohen – precisely the sort of thing that the lawyer of any celebrity would be familiar with.

The left, somehow, felt like this was a story.  It turns out that it wasn’t.  Not even close.

Alan Futerfas, a Trump Organization lawyer, agrees. In fact, the whole debate about what exactly Trump said about “cash,” he suggested, is nonsense.

“Whoever is telling Davis that ‘cash’ in that conversation refers to green currency is lying to him,” the lawyer told CNN Tuesday.”There’s no transaction done in green currency. It doesn’t happen. The whole deal never happened. If it was going to happen, it would be a payment to a large company that would obviously be accompanied by an agreement of sale. Those documents would be prepared by lawyers on both sides.”

He continued: “The word ‘cash’ came up in the context of the distinction between financing, which is referenced, and no financing, which means a full payment, a total one-time payment. That’s the context in which the word cash is used. Anyone who knows anything about the company or how the President does business knows there is no green cash. Everything is documented. Every penny is documented.”

Trump has also shrugged off the tape, pointing instead to the fact that Cohen secretly recorded a private conversation with his own client.

“What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “Is this a first, never heard of it before? Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped – can this be so? Too bad!”

The “cash” verbiage seems to be the lynchpin of the left’s argument regarding the importance of the tape.

Clearly and obviously, the use of the word “cash” is subject to any number of qualifiers, and its presence on this particularly diabolical recording by Michael Cohen is only as important as the meaning given to it by its utterer.  Who, in this case, is the President of The United States.
