Anderson Cooper Calls Out ‘Deafening Silence from the White House’ on Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal

Anderson Cooper opened tonight calling out the “deafening silence” from the White House on the two women alleging they had affairs with President Trump.

The President has not answered questions about Stormy Daniels or Karen McDougal yet, though reporters have tried, and Cooper noted at one point Trump was “taking the long way” to avoid the press.

Cooper spoke to McDougal last night and also spoke to Daniels for 60 Minutes on Sunday, and he showed some of the video from the former on what McDougal alleges about the affair.

He also noted how the White House news conference today was not quite a news conference since he didn’t exactly take any questions.

There’s reporting tonight that the President’s advisers are warning him to say nothing publicly because it would look beyond inappropriate, while Cooper reported this tonight:

“Perhaps most surprisingly, our Jeff Zeleny’s been told by sources that the President’s announcement of a new national security adviser yesterday––John Bolton––just days after dumping his Secretary of State, was done, in part, to take the spotlight off the interview with Karen McDougal. If Jeff Zeleny’s sources are correct, that would be an extraordinary move, even for this president.”
