Trump should pay hush money to his lawyers

Remember how US President Bill Clinton got into trouble – not for having an extra-marital affair but – for lying about it.

Who cares that US President Donald Trump cheats on his wife? The real problem is that he sc**ws everyone else too.

Anyway, unprovoked, his old friend and new lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on TV that as a private person the Donald paid off a porn star (so nothing to do with the elections) and that he did so, so that it wouldn’t come out just before the election (oops).

And he further said that Trump fired Comey to obstruct justice.

No, this was not a private analysis of a private citizen – he’s the man’s lawyer, for crying out loud.

No, this was not in a court of law, under pressure during cross-examination. It was during a friendly interview by a friendly TV station.

Who needs prosecuting attorneys with lawyers like that?!

Dyslectic as he is, Trump in haste probably picked out someone from the wrong category: not “legally instant” but “legally insane.”

Instead of paying off porn stars, he should pay his lawyers to shut up. They are as loose-lipped as the First Gentleman himself.

BTW, Trump in this case did not undercut Giuliani when he later contradicted him, though that’s what he does all the time – even by taking off an imaginary piece of dandruff from the jacket of a close one, to show that no one is as great and perfect as the I, me and myself. Remember that Trump always walks back anything any of his spokes persons or he himself said, to obscure any sight onto the truth. He talks out of both sides of his mouth – it’s an old habit.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
