Ohio farmer compares farmers under Trump to Stormy Daniels: 'Screwed' then paid off

 

 

An Ohio farmer in an op-ed piece compared the plight of American farmers under President Trump to adult-film star Stormy Daniels's situation, saying that both got “screwed” and then paid off.

 

Christopher Gibbs, a farmer who worked with the Department of Agriculture (USDA) on the federal level for 30 years, penned the piece for Ohio’s Sidney Daily News, saying that Trump’s plan to bail out farmers affected by his tariffs is proof that his trade policies are “folly.”

 

Trump’s Agriculture Department announced last week that it would offer $12 billion in aid to farmers who have been hurt by retaliatory tariffs that came in response to Trump’s decision to impose levies on imports from other countries.

 

“Let me tell you a riddle,” Gibbs wrote. “ ‘I slept with a billionaire because he said he loved me. I expected to make love, but in the morning I realized I was getting screwed. When I went to tell the world, I was offered cash to keep my mouth shut.’ ”

 

“Who am I?” he wrote. “No, I’m not a model or someone named Stormy. I’m the American farmer.”
