Chait is correct.
But it is sex and it is easy to understand, so maybe this one will have legs. Stephanie Clifford has privately alleged that a sexual encounter took place with Trump after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. Mr. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005, and Barron Trump was born in March 2006. Trump lawyer Michael Cohen arranged payment to the former porn star, Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated an NDA to conceal alleged sexual encounter with Trump.
White House response: “These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.” https://t.co/Lq6sfKzIga
