Alex Trebek to Moderate Pennsylvania Debate

“In 2012, longtime Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek admitted he would have loved to have been one of the questioners at a presidential debate between President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

“During the 2018 election cycle, he’s getting his wish. Sort of.”

“Trebek, a native Canadian who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1998, will moderate a 45-minute debate among Pennsylvania’s 2018 gubernatorial candidates.”

Stormy Daniels Kept a ‘Monica Lewinsky Dress’

“Stormy Daniels may have more than just her words from a 2011 interview to back up past claims of an affair with Donald Trump – she has kept a gold dress from the night of the alleged encounter,” The Blast reports.

“We’re told Daniels is planning on having the dress forensically tested to search for any DNA that proves she isn’t lying about her tryst with Trump, including samples of skin, hair or … anything.”

Valentine’s Day Flashback

Because of Donald Trump’s wealth and celebrity status, public opinion polls have asked Americans their thoughts about him for decades. These surveys offer an important window into the public’s past views of the current president.

One lighthearted example comes from a 1989 Parents Magazine survey that gauged the public’s interest in spending Valentine’s Day with Mr. Trump. He did not fare so well. Out of the 10 potential celebrity dates, only Mikhail Gorbachev was a less attractive Valentine at the time.

Survey Notes: Male celebrities were asked only of female respondents, female celebrities were asked only of male respondents. Percentages in the figure do not include those who did not provide an answer. Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. Survey conducted by Parents Magazine (9/22-10/10/89), obtained from the iPOLL databank provided by the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research at Cornell University.

Quote of the Day

“It’s Trump and uneducated rednecks. Trump is just telling them what they want to hear. I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy motherfucker. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

— Quincy Jones, in an interview with Vulture, on what has stirred up racism in the United States.

‘I Can Describe His Junk Perfectly’

InTouch has posted the full interview with porn star Stormy Daniels on her affair with Donald Trump.

An excerpt:

IT: Going to the bathroom, did you think you were going to come out and encounter that?

Stormy: That he was going to be in bed? No, I just had to pee. So anyway, the sex was nothing crazy. He wasn’t like, chain me to the bed or anything. It was one position. I can definitely describe his junk perfectly, if I ever have to. He definitely seemed smitten after that. He was like, “I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?”

IT: Did he initiate or did you?

Stormy: Here’s the weird thing. He had one of my DVDs and he asked me to sign it for him and I did.

Porn Star Describes Her Affair with Trump

Porn star Stormy Daniels tells In Touch that she had sex with Donald Trump in his Lake Tahoe, NV, hotel suite in 2006 — a story that was corroborated by her good friend Randy Spears and supported by her ex-husband. She also took a polygraph test.

Said Daniels: “The sex was textbook generic. I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don’t try to pay me.’”

After having sex, Daniels said: “We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, ‘I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.’”

Daily Beast: “According to a source familiar with the matter, later this week, InTouch is planning to run the entire unedited interview it conducted with Daniels. All 5,500 words of it.”

Friend of Porn Star Confirms Trump Encounter

Alana Evans appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to recount what porn star Stormy Daniels told her about a rendezvous with Donald Trump after meeting him at a golf tournament in 2006.

Said Evans: “I asked how it went. I’m sorry, but the visual that I get has stuck with me for this entire time. I’m glad that you guys all have to deal with it too. Having her tell me the next day when I asked how did it go, and she says, ‘Well, picture this: Donald Trump chasing me around the bedroom in his tighty whities,’ isn’t something you ever forget.”
