Chris Ruddy: Trump Thinks ‘Much of the Stormy Daniels Stuff’ Is a ‘Political Hoax’

After sharing some news that President Trump is considering more shakeups very soon, Trump ally and Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy also talked Stormy Daniels.

Daniels is, of course, speaking out on 60 Minutes tonight amid her ongoing legal battle with the President.

On ABC’s This Week, Martha Raddatz asked Ruddy about not just Daniels, but former Playmate Karen McDougal, who spoke out on CNN just days ago.

Ruddy said, “I can’t tell you everything he’s thinking. I can only tell you what he told me. He said he thought that much of the Stormy Daniels stuff was a political hoax. Again, those were his words.”

Meanwhile, Ruddy himself said Daniels should be asked about her “political hit Democratic attorney” and on who’s “funding her tremendous public relations effort.”

“This is politically motivated,” Ruddy said, “to hurt and embarrass [Trump] in some way, and you know what? The end of the day, the poll numbers for the President are up… I think the American people are really dismissing this as political witch hunts.”
