CNN is so deeply invested in adult film star Stormy Daniels accusations against President Donald Trump that they dispatched a team of reporters to a Florida strip club.
Daniels alleges that she had an affair with Trump more than a decade ago and was paid $130,000 in 2016 by Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer.
Cohen has denied Trump had any involvement in the “deal” and Trump has denied ever having an affair with Daniels.
But CNN is heavily invested in the Daniels story, so they sent some of their best reporters to speak with Daniels at the event.
Reporting from the Solid Gold gentleman’s club in Pompano Beach, Florida, CNN sought to question Daniels about her recent lawsuit against Trump and Cohen and the alleged affair.
According to Mediaite, Daniels didn’t answer any questions about her lawsuit, but admitted business has spiked because of her elevated status in the media.
Mediaite reports that Daniels said her newfound fame has been a “double-edged sword.”
“But because of that, it’s sort of overshadowing a lot of adult films that I’m supposed to be promoting, and a lot of the mainstream projects that I was actively working on have indefinitely put on hold,” Daniels said in the CNN interview.

It’ll be hard for CNN to regain its dignity after the bizarre segment, but it speaks volumes about how low the network is willing to go to attack Trump.
Reporting on the lawsuit is one thing, but dispatching a team of reporters to interview Daniels at a strip club raises serious questions.
It’s unclear what happens next in the saga, but CNN will have a hard time recovering from this one.
What do you think about CNN’s interview with Daniels?
