Trump did hire his ghostwriter for Art of the Deal, because the guy wrote an article about Trump, which portrayed him as a mobster-like figure.

I have often gotten the impression that Trump is a massive coward and tries to create the impression of being one step away from actual scary people, as in your example. Too bad the RCMP will never get a hold of him. :D

Mr. Big (sometimes known as the "Canadian technique") is a covert investigation procedure used by undercover police to elicit confessions from suspects in cold cases (usually murder). Police officers create a fictitious criminal organization and then seduce the suspect into joining it. They build a relationship with the suspect, gain his confidence, and then enlist his help in a succession of criminal acts (e.g., credit card scams, selling guns). Once the suspect has become enmeshed in the criminal gang he is persuaded to divulge information about the specific crime under investigation.
The Mr. Big technique was developed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in British Columbia in the early 1990s. It has been used in more than 350 cases across Canada as of 2008.[1] The RCMP claim that the person of interest was either cleared or charged in 75% of cases. Of the cases prosecuted, an estimated 95% result in a conviction.[2]

....
it's one of the most notable contradictions in his personality.  he carries himself as a tough guy and will be very combative if cornered, but reportedly hates confrontation and tries to avoid it as much as he can.  e.g., he doesn't fire people in person (except on the show).  he has someone else tell them, or does it over twitter.  like a big pansy.

another curious and possibly related contradiction is that he purports not to care what people think of him, but then obsesses endlessly about bad press and low poll numbers.

One of the electoral-vote.com guys suggests this is pretty bad for Cohen:
Quote
Meanwhile, Avenatti dropped a minor bombshell (and one that's probably not getting quite as much attention as it should). We already knew that while Trump lawyer Michael Cohen claimed to be negotiating with Daniels on behalf of a non-Trump shell corporation called "Essential Consultants," he was using his Trump Organization e-mail address. What Avenatti added on Sunday night was a copy of the letter that Daniels' then-attorney Keith Davidson sent to Cohen to complete the transaction. That letter was sent to Trump Tower, and addressed to "Michael Cohen, Executive Vice President and Special Counsel to Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization." In short, it is now almost impossible for Cohen to argue that he was not working in an official capacity on behalf of the then-candidate.

So, a criminal violation of election law almost certainly occurred. If that is not enough, Cohen has also exposed himself to significant liability, and to possible disbarment. Consequently, as Potter observed, a "wild card" in all of this is that Cohen might well have some knowledge of Trump's dealings with the Russians. And as everyone knows by now, special counsel Robert Mueller loves to nail someone on a slam dunk criminal offense, so as to get them to squeal on their bosses in order to save themselves. Thus, Cohen might soon be traveling the same path that Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos have traveled. And depending on exactly what Cohen did, and in what capacity he did it, attorney-client privilege may not apply. Or, if Cohen's law license is dead in the water anyhow, and his goal is to avoid prison, he might choose to waive privilege. Either way, it's yet another headache for the President.

Would be cool if Cohen suffered meaningful consequences for this.

An attorney can't "waive privilege."  It is not their privilege.

and I have gotten the impression several times that trump and people close to him think they're in the movies and try to act like Hollywood-cliché bad guys.  look at my slicked-back hair and shameless cynicism.  I am a Bad Guy.

Is the use of pseudonyms ("David Dennison", "Peggy Peterson") normal in a confidential settlement agreement?

Given the context, the author may have meant "violate privilege".

I don't know, but Trump should've been the one referred to as PP.

Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

In every story I read about this there is inevitably a statement about what Stormy's real name is. Anyone else find that weird? I mean I never see stories talking about Bono or others with stage names go out of their way to tell us their real names.

Is this supposed to be some clandestine attempt at slut-shaming?

Eh, part of that may be which sites are reporting on each. Entertainment sites (and to a lesser extent, entertainment parts of mainstream news sites) have little reason to talk about the names.

Take this article (I googled "Lady Gaga washingtonpost", no quotes): https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/02/05/the-gospel-according-to-lady-gaga/

It cites her name pretty prominently.

Every story about Lady Gaga doesn't give her real name. Every story about Stormy Daniels has given her real name.

My guess is they're trying to communicate to a mainstream and not-woke audience that these are serious accusations that must be taken seriously. There are a lot of people who may not take an accusation from a porn actress seriously so reaching those people by showing that the person is not the stage persona is maybe important.
