CNN’s Original Series is touting President John F. Kennedy’s “legendary love life” as the network drags President Donald Trump for his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.
On Saturday, the CNN Original Series account tweeted, “JFK had a legendary love life. Did one of his affairs connect him with the mob?”

JFK biographer Robert Dallek refers to the deceased president as a “compulsive womanizer.” JFK has been accused of having a number of affairs while president, including with stripper Tempest Storm, actresses Lee Remick, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe, Judith Campbell, Mimi Alford, and more.
CNN’s tweet represents a larger trend of romanticizing JFK’s infidelity, despite the fact that CNN has simultaneously painted Trump’s alleged affair and hush payment to a porn star as a “scandal” that could undo his presidency.

The lawyer handling the Stormy Daniels scandal for Michael Cohen comes from the same small New York law firm that earned thousands of dollars from the Trump campaign at the end of last year https://t.co/Md9mIbbJXT pic.twitter.com/4PCKNkdfbZ

Anchor Anderson Cooper recently conducted interviews with Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal about their affairs with the president, asking questions about their condom use, how many times the pairs had sex, and other intimate details.
CNN’s Erin Burnett, meanwhile, argued Trump’s silence on the issue “is deafening” because of his penchant for “punching back” at people who attack him.

If it’s Kennedy it’s legendary, but if it’s Trump it’s a scandal.

And if that had been Donald Trump you’d have nailed hum to the wall.

“Legendary love life”.
That’s when a married Democrat has sex with women other than his wife, for those playing along at home. https://t.co/9CtrT8cQwy
