‘Ma! Ma! Where’s My Pa?” — #FOTUS Scandal Theory In Historical Perspective

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Leave it to Grover Cleveland to give us the only scandal that would be equal to the #FOTUS Scandal if it were proven true. Maybe not “equal” as opposed to “similar.” Not even Cleveland had the damn child aborted while running on an insane anti-choice platform. Jesus.

Now, let me again stress that I don’t even know if any MSM organizations care enough about this theory to do the basic reporting of simply asking Playboy what it knows. As I keep saying, I just want the truth. And right now, I don’t have it. I have a weird story that makes no sense logically. I vacillate wildly during the course of an hour as to the validity of the #FOTUS theory.

Anyway, the story is according to this Website:

He (Cleveland) told his campaign managers to “tell the truth” – a mantra that he would always follow. And the truth was this: some years earlier, he had been acquainted with a widowed seamstress named Maria Halpin. Casual with her favors, Mrs. Halpin was also acquainted with several of Cleveland’s friends. When there was to be a child, Grover Cleveland volunteered to accept responsibility. While he was never sure of his paternity, he was the only bachelor amongst Maria’s intimates and did not wish to have his married friends embarrassed. He was also in a position to afford financial assistance – and even tried to set Mrs. Halpin up in a dressmaking business. Despite Cleveland’s monetary assistance, she proved to be an unfit mother, and when the boy was still small, Cleveland had him placed in suitable foster care. Some say he grew up to be a professional man; some say he died when he was a child. Nothing has ever been ascertained fully.

This is all rather quaint now, of course, but he’s definitely not the only president to be accused of fathering a kid under dubious circumstances. Big man on campus Bill Clinton alledgly has at least one kid outside of his marriage to Hillary Clinton. This rumor was famously a plot point in Primary Colors.

The #FOTUS scandal, if it’s real, would rock Washington like a nuclear bomb for at least, maybe a day? I mean, if Donald J. Trump can becomes president of the United States after the Access Hollywood Tape, I give up, bruh. If you could prove Trump through Micheal Cohen pressured Shera Bechard to have an abortion that might give someone, somewhere pause for thought.

Maybe.

It’s driving me crazy that I can’t just call up someone at Playboy myself and settle this once and for all. But I have to be patient. I think our best bet is sometime in the next week or so, New York Magazine will do a follow up story that says, “People asked around and it checks out — Elliot Broidy is the babydaddy.”

Meanwhile, here is what we know and don’t know at this point.

Where Things Stand With The #FOTUS Scandal Theory As Of May 26th, 2018

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

There’s a scene in The Bill Chill where one character turns to another and says something along the lines of, “I have the feeling people are having sex all around us.”

Now, I have no solid datapoints that give me any indication if this theory is gaining any traction within serious MSM circles. None. Zip. Zilch. I have my gut, which tells me that if, say, a New York Times editor picked up a phone and called a peer at Playboy this could all be wrapped up one way or another within a few hours.

I say this because if anyone knows enough about Shera Bechard’s lovelife between 2015 and 2017 to be able to give us confirmation that it was Elliot Broidy all along who fathered the aborted fetus it would be them. As I understand it, Playboy is a tight-knit, if nebulous community of gorgeous women and the men who want to bang them. So, really, all you need is someone who has the backing of a major media name behind them to ask a very simple question: Do you have proof Shera Bechard was dating Elliot Broidy between 2015 and 2017. If they say yes, then all of this is moot if still tragic.

But if they say, “Uh, guess what, we talked to a few girls and they say it was Trump.”

Then you got yourself an enormous scandal.

In my fevered imagination, Playboy would panic as it sunk in how bad it would look if it was proven they knew something about #FOTUS and did noting about it. In my imagination Playboy is really two different things: there’s the publishing side and the party side. I could imagine that the corporate media people — who are probably all what were once referred to as liberal Republicans — would be aghast that the entire enterprise could be put in danger by the screw ups on the party side.

I’m just daydreaming on that one. I have no idea what the truth is.

Such a scandal as this, if is proven true, would dwarf anything we’ve seen since Watergate because of the abortion angle. We simply have no idea why Shera Bechard got an abortion, but if you wan to veer off into tinfoil hat land, the argument could be made that she had to get an abortion for the $1.6 million.

Which brings up an odd aspect of this scandal. Why would Broidy of all people pay the enormous sum of $1.6 million to a woman unless he really got something of it. I thought he was a big-wing in strict pro-life party. What an odd thing to do. You’d think Broidy — who apparently is still quite happily married despite this event — might have been able to lowball Bechard and even still get an abortion.

It’s just really odd. It’s enough to make you cock and eye and mull things for a moment.

But just like at the end of The Usual Suspects, we may learn that everything we think about this story is wrong and she really did know Broidy, she got the abortion without any pressure and Keith Davidson along with Michael Cohen popped up out of happenstance.

I really want to believe that. I want to believe I’ve got this all wrong and I can go back to working on my novel and feeling bad about not really having done anything with my life in six years.

One thing I’ve been thinking about the last day or so for no other reason than, well, I’m extremely bored and anxious that this might turn out to be a significantly bigger deal than I ever imagined, is what would happen to me if news broke that Trump was the FOTUS babydaddy.

In my fevered imagination, things would get bonkers pretty quick. Like, within minutes of the story being published, Twitter would figure out I’d been writing about it and hilarity would ensue. The most likely outcome of that is I would become just another Ken Bone. I’d go from hero to zero in matter of hours and people poured over my background and picked apart every dumb thing I’ve ever said or done on the Internet. Trust me, there’s a lot get upset about. I’m not innocent and, to be frank, I can come off as rather bonkers for no other reason than I’m something of an obsessive.

Throw in Trump being a caged animal tweeting thinly veiled death threats at me, and well, things get really interesting really quick.

I’m not saying this is going to happen. I could very well just be not even enough of an astorick in all of this to merit a Wikipedia page, even if it is Trump. The actual reporters who would break this story are the ones who deserve the attention, not me. Hell, I’m not even doing the real work when it comes to finding out stuff on social media.

In the end, I’ll just be glad to if not see Trump run out of office, at least the entire FOX News bullshit factor come to a grinding halt for a day while it processes the magnitude of this screw up on the part of POTUS. But again, we have no proof of any of this. Trump could, for once, be in the clear.

As I keep saying, I just want to know one way or another who it is. I want proof Broidy knows Bechard enough for her to sign an NDA. If all this speculation is proven to be incorrect, that’s fine. I’ve embarrassed myself in public online before, many times.

Meanwhile, here is what we know and don’t know at this point.

1. Why did Shera Bechard pick Keith Davidson to represent her?
It has been suggested that she just “asked around” and someone mentioned Keith Davidson. The only way you can believe that is if Davdison is like the go-to guy for women in Bechard’s situation. You would have to believe that this is independent of his connection to two other women directly connected to Donald Trump. If you prove that Davidson in this specific incidence was just a right-time right-place kind of guy, then you get a lot closer to the truth.

2. Why did Trump give Elliot Broidy what he craved — direct access to the White House the day after the first installment of Bechard’s $1.6 million pay off was deposited in her bank account?
If that’s just random happenstance, then, ok, there you go, it’s more likely Broidy was the babydaddy.

3. What was Bechard’s state of mind at the time of her abortion?
We know she was pretty chill about it, at least at one point, so why get an abortion at all? Doesn’t it sound like Trump — who is known to raw dog lovers — to look up from his paperwork and snap at Michael Cohen to “fix it” and go back to tweeting and eating his cheeseburger?

4. How complicit is Playboy in all of this?
Does Playboy know anything? And if they do, what? Seems like that would be the quickest, easiest way to answer the question of the babydaddy once and for all. If Broidy is the father, then Playboy could easily prove it. If Trump is the father, then, well, there you go. You got yourself the biggest Trump news since the Access Hollywood Tape.

I just want to know one way or another. That’s it. Just give me more evidence that Broidy and Bechard know each other beyond that which is needed to draw up an NDA.

Here are additional questions and situations.

What We Know
We know Bechard had an affair with someone between late 2015 and late 2017.
We know that Trump’s schedule and Bechard’s Instagram placed him in proximity (NYC) to Bechard in the mid-to-late September 2017 timeframe.

We know a child was conceived around mid-to-late September of 2017 and later aborted.
We know Trump has, at least once, “raw dogged” with a woman he was having and affair with (Stormy Daniels.)
We have photographic evidence on Instagram that Bechard was at least outward ok with being pregnant at some point.
We know Bechard at one point had a dog named Ellie.

We know Bechard at some point was referred to Keith Davidson.
— Davidson was the lawyer who represented two other women who signed NDAs with Trump.
We know Broidy used Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer to represent him.
We know Bechard got $1.6 million (hardly Stormy Daniels’ ‘nuisance” money.)
We know Broidy was actively seeking access to the Trump Adminstration about this time in the guise of various Arab states.
We know that the day after the first installment of the $1.6 million to Bechard, Broidy gained access to Trump directly.
We know Bechard is interested in the #MeToo movement.

What We Don’t Know.
Anything to do with Trump directly being connected to Bechard other than Cohen and Davidson.
Anything to do with Broidy being directly connected to Bechard other than the NDA, Davidson and Cohen.
Anything in cold hard fact terms about Bechard’s exact state of mind at the time of the abortion.
— Was there a direct quid pro quo?
Anything about how many Playboy Bunnies (Playboy itself?) knew anything about an affair with either Broidy or Trump.

In fact, we have no evidence that Broidy even knows Bechard other than the things directly connected to the NDA.

Outstanding questions:
How come $1.6 million from Broidy of all people? He’s a rando. Why would he give a shit. Or why would he give $1.6 million worth of shit.
How could Donald J. Trump bang Bechard while also running for president and being in the Oval Office.
How could all of this be kept secret if Trump was the babydaddy? Is that proof that it didn’t happen?
How did the WSJ learn of the affair? Why did Bechard’s name only come out later in the day once the story broke?

Existential Questions
Why no comment from Peter K. Stris, Bechard’s lawyer?
Why no comment from Cooper Hefner?
Will it even matter if we prove it was Trump? Is there nothing that will ever hurt him politically, especially on the character side. He would not have done anything illegal and he can just keep babbling about the “Criminal Deep State” and “Spygate” while liberals burst into flames over the hypocrisy of a otherwise “pro-life” president.

Core #FOTUS Scandal Theory Questions

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I hate having such inability to comprehend something which should be pretty obvious. As I have been saying a lot recently, what we do know points towards Donald Trump being the babydaddy, what we don’t know points towards Elliot Broidy. With that in mind, here are the absolute core questions that if you could answer, you’d know the truth.

V-Log: A Deepdive Into FOTUS Affair Events In Late 2017

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I have all but decided that I’ve made a fool out of myself in a very conspicuous manner and that Elliot Broidy is Shera Bechard’s babydaddy and I need to shut up. But my subconscious mind has decided its Donald Trump for some reason, so I keep talking about it.

My FOTUS Affair Cognitive Dissidence Is Severe

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Everything we know points towards Donald J. Trump being Shera Bechard’s babydaddy. Everything we don’t know points to Elliot Broidy. It’s really a struggle at this point to hold on to either theory long enough to say for sure if it’s true or not.

I honestly just want to know one way or another who the babyddy dadday was. That’s it. If it was Broidy, then this is a non-issue and we can go back to being angry at what a bad president Trump is. If it’s Trump, OH MY GOD.

Analysis: The FOTUS Affair Theory In Context Of The Access Hollywood Tape

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Well, a friend of mine has come up with the name “The FOTUS Affair” for this liberal fever dream imbroglio, so that’s what I’m going to start calling it. It’d be hysterical if any of this were true, too bad, as of this moment, it’s not looking like it is.

The point is, let’s look at The FOTUS Affair in the context of The Access Hollywood Tape. If you want to look back at how we got into this situation, it’s that Republicans were so craven by the time the tape came out, that once the shock wore off, they kicked a few rocks and continued their support of Trump. Throw in some Russian collusion and the second Comey Letter and ta-da Trump’s president.

Really, for the FOTUS Affair to hurt Trump, it would have to be a shock to the political system. The proof of the FOTUS Affair would have to come out like a thundercrack out of the blue. If it came out in bits and pieces, then the FOX News Bullshit Machine would easily be able to process it as a poison and move right along.

And don’t forget that there are people who think the Access Hollywood Tape was all a big conspiracy done by the liberal crooked media in an attempt to bring down Trump. So, you would have to have absolute air-tight information that came out of the blue to do Trump any political harm. Sort of hit the vampire with a stake just right or be prepared to be eaten kind of thing.

But would Trump be impeached by the Vichy Republicans in Congress? For what? Being a bad person? Being a hypocrite? If that was a high crime in their eyes — at least when it came to a Republican president, Trump would already be long gone.

So, in the context of the Access Hollywood Tape, there would be, maybe at most a week where, like, fucking normal people would vacillate between laughing at all of this, raging at it, or feeling bad for Shera Bechard. Then by the time the Sunday talkshows rolled around the Conservative talking points would have been thought out and it would all be processed just like the Access Hollywood Tape. Trump might — if he thought he was about to be shamed out of office — make an address saying it was fake news or some other bullshit. But if the proof — I’m looking at you SDNY or maybe The New York Times re: Playboy’s Bunny community — was absolutely airtight with zero wiggle room, the nation might finally have reached a tipping point.

Maybe.

Yet let me stress that this is for the moment a liberal fever dream in the extreme. If there was a liberal version of InfoWars, I would be selling dietary supplements on it right now and screaming, taking off my shirt while I ranted about Instagram proof of the affair.

Let’s get down to the cold hard facts and logic of what’s going on.

Waiting For Peter K. Stris Comment & Playboy’s Community As Source Material

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

The point of me continuing to talk about this is I just want to know one way or another what happened. I want closure. If Elliot Broidy is Bechard’s babydaddy, then I can go back to working on my novel. I just hate this not knowing. I hate the cognitive dissidence of it obviously being Trump on the face of it, and yet there being, like, zero datapoints for it being either Trump or Broidy.

It’s really frustrating.

I would be, at this point, content with a blanket denial from Bechard’s lawyer Peter K. Stris. Just tell me she didn’t bang Trump, doesn’t even know him and I’ll be content. Then we’d have the official statement.

Meanwhile, if I had the resources, I will fly to LA and try to ingratiate myself into the Playboy Bunny community. If I worked for The New York Times I will, like, call Cooper Hefner up directly say, “Bruh, what do you know?” I think if there’s any there there — which there may not be — we could guilt Playboy into fessing up. They have a huge vested interest in being the good guy in this imbroglio. Think of the sudden relevance and positive buzz they would get if they helped bring down Trump — or at least gave him a nasty political bruise? I would be shocked if their corporate self-interests would trump them helping The Resistance. If they did help in any cover up that would be seriously uncool, Playboy.

I guess what I’m saying is if you want to know the truth of this imbroglio, figure out a way to crack the Playboy Bunny community nut. Think of who we’re dealing with. Gorgeous, catty, gossipy young women who share everything and see themselves in a sorority. I would be completely flabbergasted if Bechard had not confided in one of them about who she was seeing, be it Broidy or Trump.

Anyway. I guess I hope we could shame Playboy into confessing whatever they know.

But simply don’t know. It could go either way at this point. It really could.

Trying To Process This Imbroglio Honestly

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I don’t know what to tell you folks.

Logic says Donald Trump is Shera Bechard’s babydaddy, pure and simple. What facts we do have — other than the dog she had named Ellie — point to Donald J. Trump.

And yet.

We simply don’t know _anything_. Nothing. It’s like we’re rushing through a dark field at enormous speed and occasionally we rush past something without any context. It’s comical how one clear datapoint makes it obvious it was Broidy all along. That’s all we need. We need a picture of Broidy with Bechard. Something, anything to tie them together other than the NDA.

I’m honestly stumped. As of right this second, though, it definitely looks like this is all a big misunderstanding and I should just shut up. Until we get some new evidence one way or another, I guess I will continue to vacillate back and forth on who the babydaddy is.

Maybe it’s possible that Bechard really did just “asked around” and got referred to Davidson. Maybe that’s what really happened. And since Cohen and Davidson already had a relationship, it was a natural fit. Doesn’t make any sense at all logically, but I guess if you accept that Broidy was the babydaddy is has some sort of logic to it.

The issue is how thinly sourced the Wall Street Journal story was. They just said, “It happened, trust us.” What makes this different is, as best I can tell, no accomplishing iconic picture of Broidy with Bechard. We got nothing folks. Nothing other than Bechard and Broidy signed the NDA. That’s all we got. Nothing else.

I’m completely unable to process this cognitive dissonance. It’s driving me crazy that logic says one thing and yet what evidence I do have seems to lean towards it being Broidy. Bonkers folks.

I definitely need a stiff drink.

Logic & Datapoints: The Nitty Gritty Of Bechard / Broidy / Trump

by Shelton Bumgarner

I keep trying to put this imbroglio in the back of my mind and actually, like, be productive, but every time I try to do that, the enormous logic of Trump being Bechard’s babydaddy brings it back to the forefront of my mind again.

Let’s get down to the cold hard facts and logic of what’s going on.

What We Know
We know Bechard had an affair with someone between late 2015 and late 2017.
We know that Trump’s schedule and Bechard’s Instagram placed him in proximity (NYC) to Bechard in the mid-to-late September 2017 timeframe.
We know a child was conceived around mid-to-late September of 2017 and later aborted.
We know Trump has, at least once, “raw dogged” with a woman he was having and affair with (Stormy Daniels.)
We have photographic evidence on Instagram that Bechard was at least outward ok with being pregnant at some point.
We know Bechard at one point had a dog named Ellie.
We know Bechard at some point was referred to Keith Davidson.
— Davidson was the lawyer who represented two other women who signed NDAs with Trump.
We know Broidy used Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer to represent him.
We know Bechard got $1.6 million (hardly Stormy Daniels’ ‘nuisance” money.)
We know Broidy was actively seeking access to the Trump Adminstration about this time in the guise of various Arab states.
We know that the day after the first installment of the $1.6 million to Bechard, Broidy gained access to Trump directly.
We know Bechard is interested in the #MeToo movement.

What We Don’t Know.
Anything to do with Trump directly being connected to Bechard other than Cohen and Davidson.
Anything to do with Broidy being directly connected to Bechard other than the NDA, Davidson and Cohen.
Anything in cold hard fact terms about Bechard’s exact state of mind at the time of the abortion.
— Was there a direct quid pro quo?
Anything about how many Playboy Bunnies (Playboy itself?) knew anything about an affair with either Broidy or Trump.

In fact, we have no evidence that Broidy even knows Bechard other than the things directly connected to the NDA.

Outstanding questions:
How come $1.6 million from Broidy of all people? He’s a rando. Why would he give a shit. Or why would he give $1.6 million worth of shit.
How could Donald J. Trump bang Bechard while also running for president and being in the Oval Office.
How could all of this be kept secret if Trump was the babydaddy? Is that proof that it didn’t happen?
How did the WSJ learn of the affair? Why did Bechard’s name only come out later in the day once the story broke?

Existential Questions
Why no comment from Peter K. Stris, Bechard’s lawyer?
Why no comment from Cooper Hefner?
Will it even matter if we prove it was Trump? Is there nothing that will ever hurt him politically, especially on the character side. He would not have done anything illegal and he can just keep babbling about the “Criminal Deep State” and “Spygate” while liberals burst into flames over the hypocrisy of a otherwise “pro-life” president.
