Could it go any other way?

Donald Trump had a nine-month affair with Karen McDougal in 2006 — two years into his marriage to Melania Trump — Ronan Farrow wrote in a blockbuster New Yorker article published early Friday. The bombshell piece has the Internet abuzz — and split.

Though the left is enjoying the “gotcha” moment, conservative Twitter is somewhat unfazed by the story, with reactions ranging from “Who cares” to “Fake news!” to our favorite: “But Bill Clinton…”

Read some of the most predictable posts from right-leaning social media users below.

In Farrow’s expose, McDougal confirmed a Wall Street Journal report from shortly before the 2016 election that she was paid $150,000 by National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. for the account of her account of an affair she had with a “then-married man.”

According to the New Yorker, that  “then-married man” was Donald Trump, then a real estate mogul and star of NBC’s “The Apprentice.”

A White House spokesperson denied the affair in a statement to the New Yorker: “This is an old story that is just more fake news. The President says he never had a relationship with McDougal.”
