National Enquirer Grabs Trump By The Pecker
The National Enquirer is Trump’s favorite publication and has said the supermarket tabloid should have won Pulitzer Prizes for their exposes on John Edwards and O.J. Simpson. The gossip rag paid Stormy Daniels and Trump’s ex-girlfriend/former playmate Karen McDougal for their stories detailing their relationships with then candidate Trump, but then didn’t publish them – is a longtime practice called “Catch and Kill.”

David Pecker went to AMI in 1999, and was there when the National Enquirer broke the story of John Edwards affair & child. One wonders what else he had in his vault & how it might have been used on Trump's behalf.

Pecker’s cooperation could offer more details about Trump's efforts during the campaign to quash stories about his alleged affairs with various women.

Through the years, the thing that shocks me most about National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, is that … David never changed his last name! #astheswampturns

Trump will eventually go hard on Pecker.
