While Americans who actually care about the issues down at the southern border are tuning in to see President Trump’s address on prime time Tuesday night, porn star Stormy Daniels will be folding laundry in her underwear on Instagram live.
“If you’re looking for anything even remotely worth watching tonight at 9pm EST, I will be folding laundry in my underwear for 8 minutes on Instagram live,” Daniels said on Twitter while linking to her Instagram account.
What’s especially odd about this announcement from Stormy is that it comes on the heels of her alleging that President Trump “ruined” her career. If that truly is the case, then why would she in any way deliberately attempt to associate her “work” with the man?
Whether or not Stormy Daniels actually plans to do laundry in her underwear to distract horny creeps during President Trump’s address about border security remains to be seen. Should this laundry folding take place, it will be Stormy’s sad attempt to join her fellow Trump haters in the campaign to keep Americans from watching what the president actually has to say.
Over at NBC, late-night host Seth Meyers went as far as to persuade the networks into completely blackballing the president’s speech.
“First of all, just because Trump wants to address the nation doesn’t mean networks should air it,” said Meyers. “Otherwise, they’re just passing on his lies unfiltered. They should either reject him outright, or, if he insists on speaking in prime time, make him do it as a contestant on ‘The Masked Singer.'”
“It is a disservice to the American people to broadcast, without context or real-time fact-checking, someone who is using the airwaves for the sole purpose of lying to the American people about an overtly racist agenda,” wrote USA Today columnist Kurt Bardella.
CNN’s Don Lemon said that unless a live fact-checking is actually taking place during the address, then the networks will be complicit in promoting propaganda.
“The President will say what he has to say,” Lemon said. “People will believe it whether the facts are true or not. I guess that’s the chance you take with any president … But this one is different. And then by the time the rebuttals come on, we’ve already promoted propaganda possibly, unless he gets up there and tells the truth.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer both demanded equal air time for a rebuttal in a joint statement. “Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime,” they said. “The facts are clear: President Trump has the power to stop hurting the country by re-opening the government and ending the Trump Shutdown.”
