Maggie Haberman isn’t just a NYT correspondent and a CNN analyst. She’s also a psychoanalyst.
Or so it would seem. Appearing on CNN this morning, Haberman declared that while the stories regarding Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal might be uncomfortable for President Trump from a legal perspective:
“I do not think that it is from the moral, spousal parameter that it is bothering him.”
The only evidence that armchair-Freud Haberman adduced in support of her assertion was that 28 years ago, Trump was reportedly not embarrassed by Marla Maples’ published statement that Trump provided “the best sex I’ve ever had.” The affair with Maples, whom he later married, occurred while Trump was still married to Ivana.
Who else might Haberman care to psychoanalyze? Many of us would like to know, for example, whether on a “moral parameter” Hillary Clinton was bothered when she lied to the families of Benghazi victims, telling them that an online video was responsible for the deaths of their loved ones.
I’m sure readers will have other suggestions for how Haberman can use her supernatural skills to divine the hearts and minds of public figures.
