WH Condemns Threats Against Stormy Daniels

Talking Points Memo reports:

Asked about claims that porn actress Stephanie Clifford, who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels, was physically threatened in order to keep quiet about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee on Friday said that the White House does not condone any threats.

“Obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously, certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual,” Sanders said. She would not address alleged threats made to Clifford, however, and referred reporters to Trump’s outside legal counsel. “I have no knowledge of that situation,” she said, adding that she hasn’t spoken to Trump about the matter.

    “I have no knowledge of that situation.”
    So why the fuck are you there?

  • ccc

    But will she condemn the threats if they came from Trump?

  • Lazycrockett

    By the time the 25th rolls around the media will have moved on.

  • The_Wretched

    She says she knows Trump and talks to him regularly? What about his ‘we get to fight back” crap?

      • The_Wretched

        You and three of your colleges have asked the same question. That means I’ve answered you time and time again. Stop asking. It’s already discussed.

        • safari

          If you want to waste all your time with me today asking the same question and getting the answer I’ve already provided that is your prerogative.

  • AtticusP

    I understand that this woman gets nearly $200,000 in taxpayer money to lie through her teeth to us

    But I’ll bet the job is making her buy antacids by the truckload.

    Just ask Sean Spicer.

  • Harveyrabbit

    We condemn those threats because so far they haven’t worked well enough.

  • Henry Auvil

    “The President forcefully condemns anyone who would make a violent threat against a fine piece of ass like that.”

  • TexasBoy

    White House position on threats…Stop it, no really, stop it. *wink, wink* I mean it..stop it. *smile, wink*

  • Treant

    Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Does anybody know a medical-grade reactor that can produce polonium? Just a few micrograms? For…research?

  • Karl Dubhe

    Who will rid us of this turbulent prostitute?

  • Natty Enquirer

    When asked about the allegations, Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen replied, “Grrrrrrrrrr.”

  • HZ81

    Aw, I was hoping for “Porn stars are the backbone of America and no one should threaten these heroes.”

  • Butch

    “I have no knowledge of the situation.”
    “I haven’t spoken with the president about that.”
    “I would refer you to [X].”
    Why doesn’t she just hand out cards with those answers and forget about the press conference? That’s all she says anyway.

  • Rex

    We take the safety and security of any person seriously, unless it involves gun control, then you’re on your own.

  • SkokieGuy- playing Helen card

    Honey, any interest in condemning the three bombing attacks in Texas? Is the President going to even pretend to care, since the victims are black activists?

    • Jonathan Smith

      “No. Next?”

    • Jefe5084

      and they occurred in the awful blue enclave. /s

    “Obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously, certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual.”

    Sarah has clearly never attended a Trump rally.

    Sarah, Sarah, please find another color. Please.


    Oh, one of our creative posters could probably create a nice chroma key on fushsia.


  • MikeBx2

    “…certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual,”
    What is that Sarah, satire?

  • orion dumptee

    and sarah says…..p.s. i WISH i had a bod and ‘headlights’ like she does…and p.p.s i HATE myself lol…

  • Paula

    We condemn this threat! And their is no possible that you can know for sure it was Donnie Jr. and Eric on the phone.

    • Jonathan Smith

      except for the mouth breathing and drooling…….

  • Chuck in NYC

    That’s mighty Christian of y’all, Sarah.

  • Pablo Sánchez

    Ironically from the previous post: “Obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously, certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual,” Sanders said.”

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    Why even ask her the question? We already knew the response was going to be a “canned” one. Did the reporter seriously think that Sarah was going to address the Stormy Daniels issue in any way, shape or form? It was a waste of time to ask the question, and an even greater waste of time on her response. These daily press briefings are worse than useless – they’re nothing but kabuki theater. When has anything informative or truthful came out of Sarah’s mouth (or any of Trump’s Press Secretaries)? I’ll answer that: never.

  • I’m going to write this book. ‘Fashion Tips for Morons.’

    Rule #23: Warm vs Cold. Scarah, despite your boss’s love of warm, and orange, you are not one. Or, if you want to be, you have got to stop wearing these colors together. Pick one! Personally, I think you are a cool, blue tone, judging from your hands. So, to wit: drop the orange dayglo. Pick a cool, blue foundation to go with that hot pink. You clash like a couple of confused, overweight titans right now.

    Or just go with the orange/warm look. A peach is just as nice, fabric wise. Hot pink + orange yellow foundation makes you look like a dead thing wrapped up in cotton candy. Not flattering to your figure at all. You make every colorist in America barf, every time you get in front of the camera.

  • Tom Ato

    Questions I would ask as a reporter at the press conference……..

    -How do you sleep at night?

    -What does your “religion” say about lying?

    -How do you reconcile your “faith” with making a living lying?

    -When will you be fired?

    -Fuchsia – really? No one looks good in that color.

  • Barry William Teske

    What a joke!
    Nothing is ‘obvious’ in #45’s White House.

    So just keep clutching those guilty pearls little girl.
