Last Friday, The Wall Street Journal published a story stating that President Trump's lawyers paid adult film star, Stormy Daniels, $130,000 to keep her from talking about an alleged affair with the President.
Following that revelation, CNN broke this not so shocking news:
Fox News had a story at the height of the presidential election that detailed an alleged sexual relationship between porn actress Stephanie Clifford -- whose stage name is "Stormy Daniels" -- and Donald Trump, but opted not to publish it, sources say https://t.co/yhBGgJsYAC— CNN (@CNN) January 17, 2018
Then on Wednesday, Stormy finally broke her silence by speaking to In Touch.
From her interview:
"Stormy told In Touch, '[The sex] was textbook generic,' while discussing the fling they had less than four months after Donald’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. 'I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, please, don’t try to pay me.'
It all started at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006. '[Trump] was introduced to everybody. He kept looking at me and then we ended up riding to another hole on the same golf cart together,' Stormy recalled, adding that the business mogul later came to the gift lounge her adult-film company, Wicked Pictures, sponsored and asked for her number, which she gave him, before they posed for a photo together.
'Then he asked me if I wanted to have dinner that night. And I was like, ‘Yeah, of course!’ she told In Touch. Stormy, dressed up to go out on the town, arrived at Trump’s hotel room, where she says she was greeted by a bodyguard named Keith, who let her inside. Stormy claims Trump was sprawled on the couch watching TV, wearing pajama pants."
They go on:
"At one point, Stormy told In Touch, she excused herself to go to the bathroom. 'When I came out, he was sitting on the bed and he was like, come here. And I was like, ugh, here we go. And we started kissing.' After having sex, Stormy said, 'We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.'"
Twitter couldn't decide which was their most memorable line...
This ends with Stormy Daniels testifying in front of Congress and Orrin Hatch reading a quote like, "[His penis] was like a sandwich bag full of icing. It didn't have, like, a front" while she nods.— David Roth (@david_j_roth) January 17, 2018
Can we get back to the fact that Fox News buried this story?
Let's get this straight. @FoxNews tossed out their story on Trump's sexual encounter with Porn Star Stormy Daniels, in favor of reporting on a bogus "PizzaGate" story alleging Hillary was running a child sex ring in a Pizza Parlor's basement, when they didn't even have a basement— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) January 17, 2018
But hey, it's totally an isolated incident... right? Riiiiight...
Probably Trump had an affair with Stormy Daniels and then secretly paid her hush money, but also that’s the only woman he ever paid off and definitely no foreign intelligence services knew anything about it.— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) January 17, 2018
An important reminder:
2018 be like:
Stormy Daniels saying in the press that the President is bad at sex is a great way to invoke a surreal situation where the president denies the affair but is compelled to tell everyone how good at sex he is. 2018 is wild as hell.— Cold Drinks Enjoyer Li'l 🌴 (@karengeier) January 17, 2018
