It’s official…the Democrat Party has now adopted the violent MS-13 gang, sanctuary cities that protect illegal alien criminals, and a porn star as the face of their party. On Thursday, hypocritical Democrat and West Hollywood, CA mayor, John J. Duran, stood in front of a large group to introduce the face of the #resist movement, porn star, Stormy Daniels. Mayor As Doran handed Daniels the key to the city, he explained to the crowd and the cameras how the aging porn star represents the values of their city, while admonishing the Trump administration for threatening their values.
As he prepared to hand Stormy Daniels a key to the city of West Hollywood, Mayor John J. Duran introduced her as “our very own Lady Godiva.” It’s easy enough to presume why Duran referred to the in vogue porn star as the historic Godiva, Countess of Mercia. Daniels has become a media sensation since it was revealed that President Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 for her silence in the final weeks of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As legend has it, Godiva was an English noblewoman who rode naked on horseback through the streets of Coventry in order for her husband to lower taxes on his tenants.
Godiva’s legend couldn’t be further from Daniels’. The latter’s work as a porn star makes her decision to share her body her own choice—not an act of coercion—and her brazen, guns-blazing attitude while taking aim at the rich and powerful Trump stands apart, as Daniels alleges that they had an affair in 2006, months after his first lady Melania gave birth to their son Barron, and that she’s suffered through a series of intimidation tactics by those loyal to “Mr. Trump.”
And far from wanting no one to look upon her, Daniels has been everywhere, eager to capitalize on her moment in the spotlight—from her “Make America Horny Again” strip club tour, to a feature in Penthouse, to now a press conference as she receives the key to West Hollywood.
If it sounds cynical to insist that Daniels and Trump might be cut from a similar cloth, you should know that Duran, the aforementioned Mayor of West Hollywood who handed her the key, mires the entire event in hypocrisy.
Duran complimented Daniels on her fortitude as she takes on the president and exposes his alleged corruption, like the $130,000 hush payment she received from Cohen while ignoring the fact that his own purported sexual misconduct cost the city of West Hollywood $500,000 in settlement money. Duran is accused of meeting a man named Ian Owens on Grindr, having sex with him, and then hiring him as his deputy. Owens then claimed he was frequently propositioned by Duran (“well over 100 times,” he alleges) and was made to organize a list of contacts he’d had sex with. Owens subsequently sued and the city awarded him $500,000 to settle his claim.
If Stormy Daniels Day, a proclamation created by Duran himself, is to celebrate someone who was sexually misused by a man in power and then paid off, shouldn’t Owens have been standing at the podium beside Daniels? But then again, positioning Daniels beside Duran offered him the photo op he seemed to crave as he grinned through Daniels’ speech. – The Daily Beast
