"Someone is looking and shopping for these people to come out of the woodwork because it is demeaning to our president," one woman said.

Transcript, via CNN:





COOPER: New CNN polling out tonight shows almost two- thirds of Americans say they believe the women alleging affairs with Donald Trump before he became president. 21% say they believe the president's denials of those affairs. Last night, CNN's Randi Kaye spent the evening with the group of women all Trump supporters, who watched my interview with Stormy Daniels.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She's enjoying this way too much.

RANDI KAYE, CNN NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): On Palm Sunday, these conservative Christian women gathered in Dallas to watch Stormy Daniels' interview on "60 Minutes."

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She was shopping her story for money, just like all the other people that have tried to make money off the Trump name.

KAYE (on-camera): What was your first impression of Stormy Daniels?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I feel sorry for her. My heart hurts for her.

SHERRY MASSEY, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS: This is a porn star. Why are we giving it any credibility?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Exactly.

MASSEY: And the fact that she now wants to come out with a story because she's afraid of her children? My goodness, what did you tell the kids about your full-time job?

KAYE (voice-over): These women all voted for Donald Trump, and despite Stormy Daniels' claims, they still don't buy her story.

(on-camera): Why would she come out and give this interview if she wasn't telling the truth?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Money.

(CROSSTALK)

KAYE (on-camera): Do any -- based on this interview, do any of you believe that Stormy Daniels did have sex with Donald Trump?

GINA O'BRIANT, DONALD TRUMP SUPPOTER: I don't believe it --

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don't believe it.

O'BRIANT: -- because I haven't seen any hard proof. Should we believe the President of the United States or a stripper, porn star? I go with the President of the United States.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.

KAYE (voice-over): Most in this group believe God ordained Donald Trump to be president and stand by him despite his imperfections.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I know that when I voted for him, I wasn't voting for a choir boy.

CHRISTINE HOUCHEN, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER: He had to change as a person in order to become a president. And Stormy Daniels, if you -- the lifestyle that she's leading right now, I mean I wish she would turn her life over the way that Trump has. 9 KAYE (voice-over): This group suggests the women coming forward with tales of having had an affair with Trump are being targeted.

JILL NEWSOM, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER: Someone is looking and shopping for these people to come out of the woodwork because it is demeaning to our president.

KAYE (voice-over): And as some strongly suggested, all part of a media plot to bring down Donald Trump.

HOUCHEN: You can throw all that stuff up in our faces as many times as you want, but that means that we will work harder for Trump. Is that not so, ladies?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That's correct. SYLVIA GUZMAN, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER: This is the media defining the narrative. The people, we, the people, are ready to define the narrative. And it's not about tawdry sexual peccadilloes.

HOUCHEN: In order for somebody to come forward, you could be pushed by somebody else.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Correct.

HOUCHEN: Right? And so I think the thing is you're looking for a way to impeach my president that I worked very hard for.

KAYE (on-camera): I'm asking you about a Stormy Daniels interview on "60 Minutes", period. That's it.

(voice-over): And about that so-called hush money, these women don't see Trump's fingerprints on it, only his lawyer, Michael Cohen.

O'BRIANT: Maybe he thought he was just doing a favor to try to quash some negativity. Even though it didn't even happen, just to get rid of the story that's not even true.

GUZMAN: Which would also follow suit that that nondisclosure was unsigned, because Trump may not have known about it at all.

LINDA CHUCHWELL, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER: Worst case scenario, if he slept with her, whatever. That's between him, the Lord, and his family. So that is not about the job he's doing in running our country and which he's doing an amazing job.

KAYE (voice-over): Randi Kaye, CNN, Dallas.
