This is a headline on nymag.com: “Trump Told Comey He Wasn’t in Moscow Long Enough to Make a Pee Tape. He Lied.”
It begs the question: why didn’t Trump tell Comey “I didn’t make a Pee Tape in Moscow”?
From this nymag article, a couple revelations that came from our namesake, Comey:
- Trump denied the Pee Tape in large part because he did not stay overnight at the Hotel while in Moscow this particular time.
- Trump was worried and bothered about the possibility of his wife thinking there was even a “one percent” chance the Tape was true.
Last point first – everyone, including Melania believes there is a greater than one percent chance that this whole Pee Tape thing is true, right? I mean, I put myself around 23.6% which nestles me firmly into “Pee Tape Skeptic” territory. But, regardless, there’s not a chance that Melania is sitting at one percent on this one. She was probably fifty-fifty before the Dossier story even leaked.
Now, back to this first point…the article says that obtained flight information by Bloomberg have Trump staying overnight that led nymag to this conclusion: “Trump absolutely had enough time for a golden showers performance if he had wanted to have one.” Their analysis, not mine.
But, does any of this even matter? I mean, flight to catch or not, is Trump seriously basing his denial on whether he came back to the Hotel at night before catching a flight the next day? Look, I’m certainly not trying to kink-shame here, but, if the man is making a Pee Tape with Russian hookers, I don’t think it’s going out on a limb to say that there’s a likely willingness to partake at any hour of the day. Once you’re telling a Russian Hooker, “pee on this bed” are you really only up for that activity at night?
But, on the bright side, at least journalists were able to track down a statement by Trump and verify it to be a lie. Sheesh, I wonder if that happens often?
