Trump's Achilles Heel Isn't Melania's Naked Lesbian Photos

So let's get this over with and move on. In case you hadn't heard, the New York Post published pictures of a lesbian photo shoot featuring a young Melania Trump. It happened. They're out there. Google it (or not).

"I want to talk to you about something that is really . . . the subject is not worth mentioning on the air. I had no intention of mentioning it on the air, until I posted it last night on Facebook and read the comments. It's the comments that I have to talk about because it's not just on my Facebook page, it's anywhere where this story is running," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program.

Glenn's Facebook post took a trip down memory lane to last year when the media buried alleged photos of Melania's lesbian porn photo shoot. He warned that the Trump campaign needed to get ahead of it and deal with it, so the photos wouldn't surface this summer, when Trump was the nominee.

"The reason why they didn't is because they were trying to get the Christian vote, and he was doing his Bible tour at the time. And so the lesbian story really didn't help his Bible-telling stories. The photographs are not something you would find in the center of your Bible," Glenn said.

Predictably, the Trump campaign and his supporters denied the photos existed, accused people of lying and even tried character assassination to destroy the accusers.

"In my case, 'You're crazy. You're an alcoholic. You're losing your business. You're desperate. He won't come on your show', et cetera, et cetera," Glenn said.

So the conspiracy turned out to be false and the so-called accusers were telling the truth. Conversely, the Trump campaign and its supporters were not telling the truth.

Glenn then shared the reason behind why he spent time on the pictures: We haven't learned our lesson that character matters.

"It's not about Donald Trump. It's not about Melania. I don't care what Melania did. I know she was a model. You know, I know people make mistake. There is forgiveness. I'm not talking about forgiveness. I don't need to forgive her for anything. She doesn't need my forgiveness, and I don't need to forgive her. It doesn't affect me," Glenn said.

So what does? How do lesbian porn pics make any difference on Donald Trump being president of the United States?

"May I show you? Because we haven't learned our lesson. Stu, if I say to you there is a scandal and it didn't happen, it's a vast conspiracy and then we find out it did happen and then you say, 'Well, it doesn't matter and it was about a personal thing,' who do you think of?" Glenn asked.

"Monica Lewinsky," Stu said immediately.

"Monica Lewinsky, okay, but that's a pattern. That's a pattern. It was never a pattern before Monica Lewinsky. I want you to listen to that carefully: It was never the pattern before Monica Lewinsky. Before Monica Lewinsky, it happened, the press found out about it, you would deny it, the press would prove it, and you would be done," Glenn said.

But Bill Clinton set a new precedent with his forceful denials for over a year. People became so tired of hearing about it they decided it didn't matter, and the pattern was set: deny, destroy, accuse, it's a conspiracy, it didn't happen, it did happen, it doesn't matter.

With Bill Clinton, it was his personal life, but the same pattern repeated with his wife and Benghazi and emails. It went from personal to professional, thanks to the Clintons.

And now the pattern is repeating with Donald Trump.

"Character makes all the difference in the world," Glenn said.

Now that Trump has the nomination, the press will no longer give him the airtime or support afforded during the primary.

"I don't know if you've seen what's happening, but the press is killing him now. You mark my words. That NBC documentary will come. They're holding it. It will come. They're killing him, and he's playing the same game that he was playing during the nomination period when they wanted him to win," Glenn said.

Every mistake Trump makes now will be dragged out forever.

"They're not going to let it go. You have to change your strategy. It's no longer the nomination process. You're the candidate now, and what worked for you then will not work for you now," Glenn said.

Glenn had one last piece of advice if Trump wants to win the presidency.

"Humble yourself and move on," Glenn said. "You need to change your strategy because just yelling and accusing people is not going to win the presidency."

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
