Anderson Cooper: We left out "many, many tawdry details." Biggest news was the physical threat.

From "60 Minutes Overtime" tonight:


https://www.cbsnews.com/news/why-the-stormy-daniels-story-matters/


COOPER: For us, it wasn't so much "there was an affair." That's not as much the headline. For us, it's everything that has happened since and how we've gotten to this point.

SILVIO: And there were many tawdry details that you and the 60 Minutes team decided to leave out of this story.

COOPER: Yeah. Of course. I mean, yes. There are many, many tawdry details which we did not include in the story because it's just, you know, that's not our interest.

SILVIO: What's the biggest news that's going to come out of your interview with Stormy Daniels, as you see it?

COOPER: I certainly think the newest information—the threat that Stormy Daniels says, the physical threat, that Stormy Daniels said was made against her in 2011 in a parking lot in Las Vegas.

1. Sigh. If ANYONE had stepped up to the plate during the "debates"

and at least hinted at this thuggish behavior, instead of fixating on the stupid Russian email bait, we wouldn't be in this hell. And that includes Mr. Cooper.

2. Oh come on.

No wonder some think interview was a flop.

3. I'm wondering if that picture of the DVD/CD in the safe has a picture of the person who....

....threatened Stormy in the parking lot. She clearly said that she would recognize him if she saw him again. I would not be a bit surprised if the disk has a pic with Trump & the thug who threatened her, both with thumbs up!

4. The parking lot threat

The way they talked about the threats on her life they made it seem like it was recent

And this business about "too scared to tell the police" I guess I just don't know.

If it was my kid that was threatened, I'd be looking at the parking lot video tapes with a cop and private eye before the sun went down

6. That's just the thing

Why would someone threaten her in 2011?

I think she has had recent threats, since this all blowed up

7. This is why she was threatened in 2011:

You can bet Trump's lawyer threatened In Touch magazine with a lawsuit in 2011 to keep them from publishing the interview, but Trump apparently felt he had to have Stormy threatened directly as well.

12. She sold her story to a tabloid in 2011

They never published because Cohen threatened to sue.

8. She didn't say her child was threatened

The threat was against her. "That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom."

9. Her attorney hinted at more information to come

He seems to be dragging it out, so as to maximize media exposure. Not reveal everything at one time. So maybe more interviews in the future, with new information?

10. The physical threat by a thug that included her baby by implication.THAT's the point, for me. BUT...

The rest of it -- it really looked like she pwned him. Did you see what she did there?

On their first bedroom encounter, she gave him a "playful" order (that she would spank him) which he followed. Waited only so long when he dangled a spot on The Apprentice before her, and then when he didn't come through ("we'll see about next week" or some such to string her along) she picked up her purse and just walked away.

THAT makes the big orange bully look WEAK. More than anything, that must rankle the hell out of him.

14. Why didn't AC ask her what the guy who threatened her looked like?

 

This came up on several of the morning shows. Seems like an obvious follow up question. Describe the person who threatened you. She said she would recognize him immediately if she saw him, so you would think she could give a pretty good description. Why didn't he ask her to do that?

16. He may have

Daniels' attorney said the segment was heavily edited and much was left out. Perhaps CBS is also trying to drag this out a little bit.
