Reagan would have failed that in his later years in the office. Also, who appoints the presidents doctor? Trump himself?

This is the same doctor that tested Obama, if not presidents before.

Probably not. From the NYTimes story yesterday:
The subpoena is a sign that Mr. Bannon is not personally the focus of the inquiry. Justice Department rules allow prosecutors to subpoena the targets of investigations only in rare circumstances.

The just want information from him. The subpoena was likely a negotiating tactic.

Bannon is a jerk, but his not stupid. He probably told Trump to keep him out of anything that has to do with the Russians.

So they go to the trouble of having her sign an NDA and paying her $130,000, but no one bothers to ask her if she's already told her story to a bunch of journalists and even took a damn polygraph? Clown lawyering/PR.

I'm salivating not over the full Stormy interview being published, but over the President's response and that of his lackeys.

John Whitbeck, chairman of the state party, said McDaniel "knows full well that the Republican Party of Virginia, and I as chairman, have worked tirelessly to expand the Party into new communities."

"We wish Mr. McDaniel the best in his future endeavors but he owes every member of his party an apology for repeating the Democrat talking points that Republicans are a bunch of racists," Whitbeck said in a statement.

While these press briefings are pretty entertaining, some of these questions are starting to get incredibly frustrating. First question today: "Does the White House stand by the doctor's report on the President's health yesterday?" Good use of time.

The bar is set, unfortunately.

He's dumb enough to say that he was the best she ever had, followed up with denying he's ever met her.

3 out of 10 people would believe all of it.

I completely understand and recognize that no one cares. Or at least not enough people care. Or the right people don't care and never will.

I'm in this for entertainment value at this point.

Trump's "base", or at least the people that everyone refers to whenever Trump does/says something repugnant, isn't going to care at all about something like this. It'll just make them like him more. If the Democrats want to accomplish anything with this story, they need to go after the religious right, starting with Pence.

Daniels revealed that Trump asked her to sign a DVD copy of her film 3 Wishes and that he called her roughly every 10 days after their first encounter. As for the later encounters, she said: “We had really good banter. He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter.” Trump even had a nickname for her, she said: "honeybunch."


In the print version of the magazine, Daniels expanded further, describing the sex as "nothing crazy. It was one position, what you would expect someone his age to do
."
