Karen McDougal agreed to sit down for an extensive interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. McDougal spoke about the 10-month affair she says she had with Donald Trump shortly after the birth of his youngest son.

Voters who cast ballots for Trump, whose third wife, Melania, was pregnant at the time of the “Access Hollywood” recording were willing to look past his derogatory comments.

Why would voters care about consensual affairs of the sort claimed by former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels? What if voters don't care about infidelity at all? Do you care?

KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin talks about former Presidents with alleged affairs; John Kennedy, of course, but also Grover Cleveland, Thomas Jefferson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Dwight Eisenhower, and plenty others.
