CNN political commentator Chris Cillizza said he plans to continue to talk about President Donald Trump’s connection to porn star Stormy Daniels and said the coverage will affect how Trump makes policy decisions.

“We’re talking about it. We’re going to continue to talk about it,” Cillizza said on “New Day” Wednesday. “We know the president watches cable television and lots of it. It affects how he reacts. Not just to this, but to lots of other things like Russia, like China, like the fact that the government shuts down.”


Cillizza bragged about knowing how Trump’s mind works and believes the president is swayed by cable pundits and their talking points.

“We know that [Trump] is someone who is swayed by the winds of how coverage works,” Cillizza concluded. “You’re now seeing a lot of throw away being put behind this. Whatever you think of Stormy Daniels, it seems quite clear to me that– I remember the campaign. This story has already gotten significantly more attention than any of the allegations, and there were many, more than a dozen women who came forward during the campaign.”
