Pavlich: Stormy Daniels Was Shown 'In the Light of a Leftist' on SNL
"Saturday Night Live" brought on adult film star Stormy Daniels for a skit that featured Alec Baldwin as President Trump, Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen and Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told Trump in a phone call, "I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a comin' baby."
"What do you need for this to all go away?" Baldwin asked.
"A resignation," she responded.
Bill Hemmer asked whether this was an attempt to keep the story in the news from "a PR sense." Katie Pavlich responded by arguing that Clifford's appearance showed her "in the light of a leftist" and she "[went] down the road of politics" outside of her claims about an affair with Trump.
Pavlich said most voters "knew who they were electing" when they voted for Trump and the conduct occurred before he took office.
"They can try and win the PR battle here, but as far as polling and what people think, they would actually like to focus on important issues that affect their families," she contended.
Democrat Mary Anne Marsh said Clifford and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, are employing a "smart strategy" and are keeping Trump "on defense."
Marsh argued that the White House and Trump have not been able to tell the truth about the $130,000 payment to Clifford in 2016 though Trump's attorney Michael Cohen.
Trump derided the persistent headlines about Clifford's claims on Friday, calling it "crap" and arguing the media is ignoring positive things happening in the country.
