Editor’s Note: Why CP Terms Stormy Daniels “Whore”, Donald Trump “Soulless”?

April 13, 2018

Every now and then there is a need for an explanation given about why I write certain words or phrases.  A reader this week correctly asked a question that makes the following post necessary.  When writing that the National Enquirer was paying people off to stop certain stories from spreading I used the term “whore” to define Stormy Daniels.  It was then that a person asked me on-line “Why do you call the woman a negative name, but not the man?”

It was a very well taken point.   The educator who made the comment was correct to point out the glaring obvious truth.

I used the word “whore” on purpose to show the depths to which Trump lives his life. To call Daniels a hook-up or girl-friend would not have conveyed the same accuracy or tone.  While I know some news organizations term Daniels an actress that would then be akin to calling me an Elvis impersonator since I sing Burning Love in the shower.  Daniels is what she is, and there is no logical way I can skip over the fact.

But the point made by my reader was why I used a term to describe one gender but not a weighted one to describe Trump.  

Readers know that there is no shortage of words on my blog used to describe Trump over the last 24 months.  I am well aware that readers bounce about and do not land on every word I post about the one who currently sits in the Oval Office.

I have long considered what would be the best single word to use for Trump.  After months of such thinking I landed some time back on “soulless”.   I know many flippantly use words and do not chose carefully.  But soulless is used on my blog regarding Trump with a religious foundation.

Trump has no redeeming qualities.  He is beyond redemption.  He is dark and corrupt.  Beyond being drawn back to the light for salvation.   Every act of his life underscores again and again his darkness.

I am glad the comment was made because it points out that readers are thinking when they come to CP.  And in this time in which we live I can sincerely state nothing makes me more pleased than to have informed and educated followers.
