She isn’t a victim, and the timing of her most recent statements claiming that she is, suggests that she is more than a person lacking a moral compass. No, Lisa Page wasn’t the spouse who was betrayed. She wasn’t a woman who was lied to and cheated on. Lisa Page, in fact, was the betrayer. She was the cheater.
Now, this married mother of two (yes, you heard that correctly), is trying to flip the script and cry foul – and you’ll never guess why? Because the President of the United States, Donald Trump, has made light of her affair and dropped her name at an occasional speaking engagement or rally. That, of course, was only after being wrongfully targeted, investigated, and attacked by at least Page’s lover and former FBI Agent Peter Strzok, if not Page as well.
Just for the record, Strzok was also married and has three children. It is also worth noting that Page has remained married, which might be some of the discomfort she feels when the President reminds everyone of exactly what she did. That discomfort, according to Page, also prompted her to speak out. Are you sitting down? She likened this discomfort to PTSD, only worse!
As one story reports, Page said, “I wouldn’t even call it PTSD because it’s not over. It’s ongoing. It’s not a historical event that is being relived. It just keeps happening.”
Then she continued…
“I mean, he tweeted about me four days ago… when Roger Stone got convicted, he asked, why isn’t Page in jail too? Not to mention, you know, his truly reprehensible, degrading stunt at his rally, in which he used my name to simulate an orgasm. And I don’t even know when the president’s going to attack next. And when it happens, it can still sort of upend my day. You don’t really get used to it.”
Just to be clear, what Lisa Page is saying is that after cheating on not only her own husband but engaging in an affair with another married man (and she knew), she is now suffering trauma from being reminded about it. That’s a shame.
The second part of her rant, however, is a true revelation of her character. We have to understand that these unforeseen, unwanted, and unkind actions can still “sort of upend my day,” as she said it. Wouldn’t that be like, oh – what would you compare it to – maybe an affair?
That’s right, the problem is that an affair is much worse. Forget the fact that Page, at the very least, evidentially supported Strzok’s attack and undermining of the President. Forget that she was an FBI lawyer, and just assume this was about the affair alone and nothing else. Then it would still be an awful decision and it would do a hell of a lot more than “sort of upend” your day. Maybe she forgot momentarily that she has children? That he has children.
Lisa Page isn’t only crying no fair, she is also trying to make her voice loud and public. And what might be the most frightening part of this story is that she still thinks that she the victim. This woman, a decade younger than Strzok and who has defined the ugly word “homewrecker” decided to be selfish and stupid. Then claim that she’s been hurt, and she believes she will find sympathy. From who?
When we suffer from the consequences of our own actions, it can be harsh and painful. If we have the humility, maturity, and dignity to step up and accept responsibility, then we often find some support and comfort. We are all human, most of us understand, even the ugliest of mistakes, and they can be forgiven.
This is who she is and that isn’t her response. This affair of only a few short years ago has undoubtedly caused hurt and shame to many of those around them. Yet, instead of an apology, we get a woman pretending like she is the victim as if she was wronged. There is a word for those who hurt and choose to do harm to others and have no remorse. Here’s a hint, the word isn’t “victim.”
Here’s one more interesting fact, these public statements from Page are being released just days before “…DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to release a report into possible FBI misconduct,” our story also reported. Now, isn’t that convenient too?
Lisa Page may be a lot of things, but a victim isn’t one of them.
