“Fish in another man’s pond and you will catch crabs.” – Habeeb Akande
The affair of the past that continues to haunt President Donald J. Trump, who had a wife at the time who was his third, Melania Trump, who happen to give birth to Barron Trump. The youngest of his kids. So in the days and months as she was pregnant and was with his child. The now President couldn’t hold his fingers away from woman. Now the “Stormy Daniels” Affair is spawning, as the Porn Star has sued Trump and his Trump Organization. She is named Stephanie Clifford and has apparent reasons for suing the President. As I will detail the juicy part of this, since any President who has a past with a Porn Star should be careful. Especially, when you have used Bill Clinton’s womanizing efforts in his own campaign. He should be extra careful to address others for what they did. I say that, because you cannot speak of loyalty and of loving woman, and then cheat on your own wife. We knew that was how the President met his Second Wife Marla. The one before Melanie, the first lady now.
So this is seriousness, as the adultery should be shown and be admitted, as the President cannot talk ethics and how to be right, when he acts against the beliefs he spews in public. You cannot speak of wanting to make the world better for the poor and give tax-breaks to the rich. You cannot speak of abstinence and respect of marriage. Than later show that in your past, you have broken the codes, you have had secret relationships and you have acted against your wife. When she needed you most. That is what the President has done. And his people has in vile attempts tried to cover it up.
Now Stephanie is shedding light on the affair and it really shows how conning this man is and how the people around him act. They are letting him get away and giving him way to betray his own wife. He even had a new nickname David Dennison. Like he was a figure out of a bad sitcom. “Mister Dennison, how you doin’?”.
The intimate relationship begun in 2006 and lasted into 2007. The allegations of illegal affairs isn’t in the sense of adultery, but the usage of the fixer and personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who made a “hush agreement” so Clifford wouldn’t disclose the matter to the public. During the time of the Presidential Campaign. That Contract was made by Cohen on 17th October 2016, this agreement used the alias that both were assigned, Trump aka Dennison and Clifford aka Peterson. This contract between the parties was signed on 28th October 2016. However, Trump never signed the contract, therefore, it is now alleged the Hush Agreement is null and void. Meaning, the reason for the contract isn’t there, because Trump didn’t verify his association with the agreement made between Clifford and Cohen.
Later the money was wired and stopped Clifford from disclosing the relationship to the media. However, Cohen wrote a wrongful and issued a Statement regarding the relationship to the Media. Even after this Cohen has continued to pursuit the goal of silencing Clifford from talking about it. Cohen even has sued her in Los Angeles. This proves that even after the agreement was signed, the lawyer and fixer of Trump has done what he could to silence her. It seems typical as the bullying of Trump is also being used by his lawyer. Who has also paid her with questionable funds and within the time of the Campaign. That Cohen even used a Trust Fund to Wire the money to Clifford. It shows how far the Trump Organization and Trump himself went to distance himself. To a point where he even didn’t sign the agreement. Which now seems foolish, because all parties hasn’t signed and made the agreement valid.
While Cohen went public and incorrectly misused funds through a trust-fund, while also coming out a wrongful public statement. This all shows that Trump and his partners wanted the relationship hidden and used a small sum of cash to silence the Porn Star. However, he didn’t accept the Hush Agreement or thought of the consequences of not signing it.
The storm is not over, but the tide is rising and the drama around the White House is far from over. Since even a Porn Star sues the Family Values President, the Conservative and the candidate for the Evangelical Christian Political Juggernaut in the United States. If hypocrisy is ever really defined, somewhere there, you have it. Mr. Pimp Named Slickback aka Donald Trump is at it and was it. His womanizing ways is now haunting him. Peace.
A Pimp Named Slickback: [reciting prayer] “Lord, please pray for the soul of this bitch. And guide my pimp hand and make it strong, Lord. So that she might learn a ho’s place. Amen” “The Boondocks: Guess Hoe’s Coming to Dinner (#1.3)” (2005).
I am going back to fiction to explain the actions and words of Donald Trump, his misbehaving streak is abnormal as he has been a public figure and reality-show figure together with selling made-up businesses that isn’t real as well. Therefore his Trump Organizations gone to licensing instead of building something that matters in the recent decade.
When we speak about that, the recent leaks of Donald Trump said this in 2005:
“I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it” (…) “I did try and f— her. She was married” (…) “And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture” (…) “I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married” (…) “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look” (…) “I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her” (…) “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait” (…) “And when you’re a star, they let you do it” (…) “You can do anything” (…) “Grab them by the p—y” (…) You can do anything” (Fahrenthold, 2016).
In another Howard Stern interview in 2005 on Miss Universe:
“In an April 2005 episode, Stern asked Trump if there was ever a time when he had sex with Miss Universe or Miss USA contestants. “I never comment on things like that,” Trump answered” (…) “It could be a conflict of interest,” Trump said. “But, you know, it’s the kind of thing you worry about later, you tend to think about the conflict a little bit later on.” (…) “Well, what you could also say is that, as the owner of the pageant, it’s your obligation to do that,” Trump said, before discussing how he got away with going backstage when the contestants were naked. “Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.” (CNN Politics, 2016).
We know it is worrying when I can take a fictional character like Pimp Named Slickback from the Boondock and find the similar attitude towards woman. The character that is made in the vision of Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Doggy Dog aka Snoop Lion. That isn’t something the Republican National Committee or Republican Party would envision for their Presidential Nominee before the Presidential ballots happening in November 2016.
Why I say that is the way he talked about woman in a disrespectable way. It is a decade ago he said these things about the gender and we’re proud of being inspecting the woman of Miss Universe
He said this about his daughter Ivanka Trump at Howard Stern:
“They’re quite something, starting with numerous lascivious Trump comments about his daughter Ivanka. (For instance: “Can I say this? A piece of ass,” Stern asks about Ivanka. “Yeah,” her father replies.)” (Fallows, 2016).
The ones that thought Trump we’re a noble guy, a man who has a broken record caring about the persons he sells his products and businesses too, would care about anybody else than himself. That the Trump calling Mexicans rapist would care about the gender of woman shouldn’t be surprised.
On ABC News transcript from Interview with Rush Stephanopoulos:
“STEPHANOPOULOS (on camera): “So you’re not worried about Obama…”
TRUMP: “I won with…”
STEPHANOPOULOS: “– out there campaigning against you?”
TRUMP: “Look, you know what? Once we start, I think it’s going to be good. You know, Hillary Clinton, the only thing she’s got going, she plays the woman card 100 percent. I saw her in a speech, well Donald Trump spoke a little bit harshly to Megyn Kelly. Well, Megyn Kelly was really terrific. She called me and came up to my office. She wanted to make peace. And we did. We did. I mean, it was very nice. Some of the stuff is said as, you know, an entertainer, because I have The Apprentice, or some of it was said in fun with certain shows like Howard Stern, who is a friend of mine…”
STEPHANOPOULOS: “So, you’re not worried about the tapes of that coming back?”
TRUMP: “It comes back. I mean, look, what am I going to do? Everyone else thinks it. You know, these politicians, I watch the politicians, what they say behind the scenes makes whatever I said jokingly to Howard and other people like baby stuff. What they tell me behind the scenes talking about everything is far worse than anything that you’ve seen or you ever will see about me. And then they act like, oh, that’s so terrible. That’s so terrible. I mean, you know when it’s called? Give me a break. And I watch Hillary Clinton like she’s a baby. I mean, just look at what happens with her family. I watch Hillary Clinton like, oh, the way he talks to women, the way he talks to women, well — you know, take a look at her husband and what do you think he talks to women? So, when I watch her and she’s playing the women card so much and so loud. And frankly I think it’s her only chance of getting elected. You know what, listen, she’s going to get hit for it, because it’s not appropriate” (RUSH TRANSCRIPT FOR ‘THIS WEEK’ ON May 8, 2016).
He blames Hillary Clinton, his main competitor for being a woman. Her only promise for her campaign is her gender, not her career or her achievements in the Senate and as Secretary of State. That proves his chauvinism towards her and the attitude is old embedded in him. That the Republican candidate Trump at one point expected to get away with this because of his stature as a star.
Let’s see what Pimp Named Slickback said on the Boondocks TV show season 2 Episode:
“Tom: “I-I don’t think I need any help from (scoffs) someone like you”.
A Pimp named Slickback: “And by (scoffs) ‘someone like me’, you mean a pimp, a bad guy?
Tom: Now look, I’m not trying to insult you, I just don’t approve of what you people do to women. A Pimp named Slickback: (jeering) Ooooh! So I’m wrong! So I’m messed up! We’ll which one of us is the one missing a bitch, Tom? You don’t see me running around lookin’ for a bitch! I know where all of my bitches are, thank you very much! (dials number) Bitch where you at?! (ho speaks) I’m out here, gettin’ yo money! (Slickback retorts) That’s what the hell I thought, thank you grandma! (to Tom) Now look at you! Bitchless! Sans bitch, as the French in France would say!” (The Boondocks: Tom, Sarah and Usher [2.2]).
In another eposide he said this to Riley:
“A Pimp Named Slickback: I don’t think Homies Over Hoes is a sentiment that A Pimp Named Slickback can cosign, Riley. I mean don’t get me wrong. A Pimp Named Slickback would put a lot of things over a ho. Money over a ho? Always. Brand new gators over a ho? Absolutely. A turkey sandwich with just tomato? Guaranteed. But homies? Oh no. A Pimp Named Slickback don’t do shit for the homies. Let me reiterate. Don’t do shit for the homies. Unless the homie wanna walk that stroll and get that money, a homie ain’t gettin’ a goddamn thing. And the same goes for brothers, peeps, dudes, fellas, dunnies, comrades, whatever the fuck niggas is callin’ each other nowadays. Sound like some gay shit to me” (The Boondocks: The Story of Gangstalicious Part 2 [2.13]).
I hate to say this, but the belief in him and the attitudes towards woman is so similar, it is striking and Pimp Named Slickback isn’t a character I expected to find in the United States Presidential Candidate in 2016. I thought the world was better than this and the equality was in another state than it apparently is.
That comes from a Presidential Candidate Donald Trump can behave and say this about woman and stay by it; the consistence disrespect of the gender and even his own daughter Ivanka. And that he sounds like a fictional character. That he acts the same way about woman like a pimping character and see’s woman the same way.
This is something all the ones that all of a sudden went away from him, these is a lot of old interviews. It’s not like it is fresh. These interviews are old news, but blowing up now because it shows his character. This should be well known already for the people and the American Electorate. For some reason, it is apparently not!
Just as the Boondocks isn’t fresh and isn’t hot right now, the same should be a about a womanizer like a fictional character. This proves his lack of moral, not only as a xenophobic person now, but his true chauvinism towards woman; and that is disrespectful just like he did with the Mexicans when launched his Presidential Campaign and also his continuously attack on the Muslims and their faith. He cannot bare himself from attacking others that are non-white and complaining that America is in tatters and need his saving.
The same way he in the past went with his ways on how to treat woman, grade them into ten’s and look at them because he could get away it all because of his stature, instead of respecting them like equals.
The Republicans are already aggravated towards immigrations, so this is the extension of this and proves the character of the Presidential Candidate that we’re elected and their vetting of the 17 selected by the Republican National Committee; Paul Ryan the Republic leader of the House, must feel bad for this bad press at his tenure and re-election bid for vouching for this womanizer. Peace.

On 19 January 2016, DA Leader, Mmusi Maimane, delivered a landmark speech on race and identity in the DA and South Africa.
His whole speech here:
Ladies and gentlemen
Fellow South Africans
I stand before you as a child of Soweto, a proudly Black South African, a son of the African soil. I stand proud to live in a country that is no longer the skunk of the world, proud that out of the ashes of Apartheid a new nation could rise. I am a product of the Group Areas Act, the Population Registration Act and the 1913 Land Act. I was born four years after the Soweto Uprising, but the struggle that began at Morris Isaacson High School was my struggle. And the desire to break down the last vestiges of Bantu Education still burns within me. Because I cannot be free while our people are still in chains. We remain bound together by our shared history and common destiny.
I stand before you as an individual, with the right to decide for myself how to think and how to feel. No pencil test can define me. I’m so much more than the colour of my skin, but I will never deny who I am and the forces that shaped me. I will never forget where I come from. Apartheid may be history, but the racism that nurtured and sustained it continues to this day. Racism demeans us. All of us, black and white. It opens the wounds of its victims, and exposes the ignorance of those who perpetrate it. It robs us of the dignity that so many fought for. And racism divides us. Just look at us. At the very moment we need to be standing together, we are being torn apart.
It doesn’t have to be this way. When I look back, I still marvel at what we have achieved together. Some said we had no chance. They said our history was just too unfair, too brutal. They said the scars inflicted by centuries of colonial rule and half a century of Apartheid laws were just too deep. They said forgiveness and reconciliation were impossible. And then along came a leader who taught us that our scars would not be healed by more hatred, but only by love and understanding.
This humble man, incarcerated for 27 years for fighting against racial domination, was the embodiment of forgiveness and reconciliation. He urged us to look beyond our differences and find our common humanity. And so we did. Like in a marriage, we made a commitment to each other. Our antenuptial agreement was the Constitution we signed twenty years ago on the 8th of May 1996. On that day, we vowed to respect each other. We vowed to grow old together. We vowed to stick together, through thick and thin, in sickness and in health.
At first, our relationship flourished. We celebrated each other’s successes as if they were our own. When tragedy struck, we mourned together. But when the honeymoon ended, we found that we hardly knew one other. Now, after two decades, we sometimes struggle to recall what we saw in each other in the first place. Because, two decades into our new democracy, it feels as though we are drifting apart.
Part of the problem is that we – as black South Africans – are still made to feel inferior because of the colour of our skin. And this inferiority complex runs deep. I remember growing up how we used to refer to successful black South Africans as ‘ngamla’ (a white person). And I cannot tell you how many times I am told by black South Africans that I have “done well” because I happen to be married to a white woman. Apartheid was so dehumanising that, too often, even today, white people remain the benchmark that we set ourselves. How can this be?
As black South Africans, we are entitled to ask uncomfortable questions. We are entitled to ask why a black child is 100 times more likely than a white child to grow up in poverty. We are entitled to ask why a white learner is six times more likely to get into university than a black learner. We are entitled to ask why the unemployment level of young black South Africans is well over 60%.
There is a passage in Niq Mhlongo’s novel, After Tears, which captures the hopelessness so many feel. After graduating from university, the protagonist in the story arrives back in the township only to be told by his Uncle’s friend:
“If you’re black and you failed to get rich in the first year of our democracy, when Tata Mandela came to power, you must forget it, my bra. The gravy train has passed you by and, like me, you’ll live in poverty until your beard turns grey. The bridge between the stinking rich and the poor has been demolished. That is the harsh reality of our democracy.”
All South Africans – black and white – must talk about the persistence of racialised inequality twenty years after the end of Apartheid. And, if we believe this government has failed to redress Apartheid’s legacy, we must say that as well.
There can be no conversation more important than this one. It is a conversation we must keep having until the structural inequalities of our society have been flattened. This conversation is interrupted, however, every time a racist incident hits the headlines and explodes onto social media. Suddenly, we are back to square one. The injury of racial inequality is compounded by the insult of racism. It is like pouring salt in a deep wound. No wonder so many people are angry about racism. I am one of them.
So, today, I say: this far and no further. It is time to draw a line in the sand against racism. Now I know that there are many people in South Africa of all races who truly believe in non-racialism. I know that the vast majority of white people don’t think like Penny Sparrow does.
And I know that many, many South Africans are playing their part to redress the legacy of the past. But I also know that, for every racist incident that makes the front pages and trends on Twitter, there are hundreds that don’t. I know that there are people who talk to each other around the braai as if they were still living in the 1970s. And we all know somebody who is fond of starting a sentence with “I’m not a racist, but…”
Because, for every incident of overt racism, there are thousands of instances of casual, everyday racism: Talking down to people, laughing when people pronounce an English word incorrectly, not bothering to acknowledge people, believing somebody’s accent is a sign of their intelligence.
These are all subtle forms of racial superiority, and it is time we all acknowledged how damaging they are. Repeated over time, they erode the goodwill that once existed be-tween us.
It is equally important to acknowledge that racism is not the preserve of any one group. To say that black people are not capable of prejudice is itself a twisted form of racism.
As Advocate Thuli Madonsela reminds us:
“Being a victim of systemic racism and structural racial discrimination does not exempt you from being a racist.”
I could not agree more. We all have the capacity for greatness, and we all have the capacity for prejudice. That is what equality is about.
Fellow South Africans.
I still believe that most people in our country – black and white – feel a deep and abiding sense of shared destiny. More than anything, they want this imperfect union to succeed. And yet we are talking past each other, and we are not listening to each other. When we do listen, it’s like the meaning is lost in translation.It reminds me of the great poem by Roger McGough entitled “You and I”. It goes like this:
I explain quietly. You
hear me shouting. You
try a new tack. I
feel old wounds reopen.
You see both sides. I
see your blinkers. I
am placatory. You
sense a new selfishness.
I am a dove. You
recognize the hawk. You
offer an olive branch. I
feel the thorns.
You bleed. I
see crocodile tears. I
reel from the impact.
Fellow South Africans, we need to find each other again. We need to recognise what we saw in each other all those years ago. I am not going to stand here and pretend I have all the answers. I don’t think anybody does. What I do know is that any road to reconciliation starts with a conversation. So, over the coming weeks, as Leader of the Official Opposition, I will initiate a series of dialogues on race entitled ‘Stand Up, Speak Out’ involving South Africans from all walks of life. These dialogues will not be dominated by public representatives, nor will they be conduct-ed under a party political banner.
People have had enough of politicians telling them how to think and what to feel. It’s time to let people talk for a change. Having said that, as a political leader, I have specific responsibilities that I will not shy away from. And, as Leader of the Democratic Alliance, I am all too aware of the unique challenges we face as a party. We are trying to do what very few parties have achieved anywhere in the world. We are attempting to bring people together across the colour line on the basis of shared values.
I want to be clear that this does not mean we must ignore race. When I was elected in May last year, I told the delegates at our Federal Congress “if you don’t see that I’m black, then you don’t see me.” Racial injustice is real and we need to redress it. We cannot wish it away by pretending to be colour-blind. I am proud of the fact that the DA is the most diverse political party in South Africa’s history. I am proud that we stand up for the rights of each individual to be what they want to be, regardless of the colour of their skin. But the DA is not perfect. No political party is. And I want to be quite clear about where I stand.
We have a duty, all of us, to act against those who engage in racial discrimination and racial mobilisation. Because there is no place in the DA for people who believe that the colour of their skin renders them superior to others. No DA member must be satisfied until we have fundamentally addressed the structural inequality in our society. We must build a society based on freedom, fairness and opportunity. And no DA member must ever turn a blind eye to racism, no matter how subtle or coded. We need to call people out on their behaviour, even when confronting them makes us feel uncomfortable. We have a duty to stand up and speak out for our values.
Because racists are not welcome in the DA. And if you’re a racist and you are thinking of voting for the DA, please don’t. We are not the party for you. I will not tolerate racism in the party I lead. This is why I will soon be introducing an anti-racism pledge that every new and returning member will be required to sign when they join the party.
It will read like this:
I pledge to uphold the values of the Constitution, to cherish its vision for a united, non-racial, democratic South Africa, and to nourish this vision in my personal conduct.
I acknowledge that Apartheid was an evil system, and recognise that its legacy remains reflected in the unequal structure of South African society today.
I reject discrimination in all its forms, and pledge to help root it out wherever I encounter it in South Africa.
I will not perpetuate racial division, and will never undermine the dignity of my fellow South Africans.
Instead, I will commit myself to working to overcome inequality and achieving shared prosperity.
Members found to be in clear violation of this oath will have their party membership immediately revoked, no questions asked.
Today, I challenge all political parties from all sides of the spectrum to do the same. Let us send out a message that racism has no place in our politics. The DA may be the most diverse party in South Africa, but we are not diverse enough. We must continue to embrace the rich diversity of South Africa – with all its challenges and contradictions. If we do not, we will not be able to have an honest conversation about our divided past, nor will we be in a position to craft our shared future. And so, from today, I will require our structures, at constituency, regional and provincial levels, to set targets for the recruitment and development of candidates for public office. These targets, and the progress made towards achieving them, will be reviewed regularly by the Federal Executive.
My objective is to ensure that, by 2019, our parliamentary and legislature caucuses, and our decision-making structures at all levels, reflect the diversity of our complex society. And we will do it without resorting to dehumanising quotas that reduce human beings to statistics.
Finally, in the coming weeks I will introduce a policy document for adoption at our Federal Council that sets out a vision for a fair South Africa. It will contain a focused plan to overcome the structural inequalities that continue to divide us. At its heart is the recognition that the majority of black South Africans remain locked out of opportunity. The policy identifies the key obstacles to redressing this inequality, including: our unequal education system, skewed patterns of land ownership, uneven access to justice and the concentration of capital in a few hands.
Ultimately, the only way to redress Apartheid’s legacy is to ensure that every child, no matter what their circumstances, has a fair chance to become the best they can be.
This means Black Economic Empowerment that benefits poor black South Africans. It means ensuring that black South Africans benefit from an efficient and sustainable land reform programme. It means a focus on spatial development that undoes the separate and unequal development of Apartheid. It means ensuring that all our children receive an education that prepares them to compete with anyone in the world. And it means building an inclusive and growing economy that creates jobs, so that all may prosper together.
In conclusion, there can be no denying that we stand at a difficult juncture in our history. But I know we can overcome any challenge if we stand together. We have done it before and we shall do it again. I draw inspiration from the first treason trial in 1956. We must never forget that black, Indian, white and coloured South Africans stood trial together that year. They were united around shared values: the ideals of a non-racial South Africa, and the freedom of black people. We must continue this struggle. So let us stand together against racism. Let us acknowledge and confront the harsh material realities that so many black South Africans still face. Let us find each other again. Let us build a nation where we can prosper together. And let us go into the future, as one people, with a shared destiny.
I thank you.
