I am so incredibly sick of seeing Stormy Daniels’ name.
If you recall, she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show after President Trump’s SOTU address, and it was obvious she was milking the speculation for all it’s worth.
Jimmy: “This is fascinating, the signature on the original statement doesn’t match the signature on this statement and I went through my library of photographs of you to compare it, head shots that you have signed and these seem to match the original statement and am I getting at anything. Did you sign this letter that was released today?”
Stormy: “I don’t know did I? Doesn’t look like my signature does it?”
Jimmy: “It doesn’t look like your signature. You’re saying perhaps this letter was written and released without your approval?”
Stormy: “Hmm. Ha ha.”
Jimmy: “I know you either do or don’t have a non-disclosure agreement. Which if you didn’t have a non-disclosure agreement — do you have a non-disclosure agreement?”
Stormy: “Do I?”
Jimmy: “You can’t say. But if you didn’t, you certainly could say I don’t have a non-disclosure agreement.”
Stormy: “You’re so smart Jimmy.”
Jimmy: “I apologize, I have one more question Have you ever made love to someone whose name rhymes with Ronald Rump?”
Stormy: “I’ll call you whatever you want me to baby.”
She was being all mysterious and not answering questions to fuel speculation. Let’s get real. She’s promoting her Make America Horny Again tour.
However, Daniels released this statement, denying the alleged affair with Trump.
Stormy Daniels (going on Kimmel tonight after Trump’s State of the Union) issues a new statement saying she is denying having an affair with Trump not because of a settlement but because “it never happened.”
She would also like you to follow her on Instagram.

Well, we’re now seeing reports that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket.
“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said in a statement to CBS News. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”
Cohen first gave his statement to The New York Times. Cohen’s statement is the first time he has acknowledged the transaction, which was made through a limited liability company, or shell company, Cohen had established.
Cohen called it a “private transaction” and said he had issued a similar statement to the Federal Election Commission. A watchdog group, Common Cause, filed a complaint to the FEC saying the payment constituted an in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign.
“The complaint alleges that I somehow violated campaign finance laws by facilitating an excess, in-kind contribution,” Cohen said in his statement. “The allegations in the complaint are factually unsupported and without legal merit, and my counsel has submitted a response to the FEC.”
Cohen said in the statement that he does “not plan to provide any further comment on the FEC matter or regarding Ms. Clifford.”
Yeah…I have no idea what to do with this information. Why would you randomly pay a porn star $130,000? Is this supposed to settle the case? Because I have more questions. This is shady.
“Hi, it’s me, the lawyer to the president who paid a porn star $130,000 out of my own pocket for reasons I won’t explain. I assume there will be no further questions.” https://t.co/f3xWlDWxmw

50 years from now, historians will look back at this, and wonder why where we distracted by the bread and circuses of Stormy Daniels. https://t.co/CPQMM10Zoq

And this Stormy Daniels affair is going to impact this presidency how exactly? Nobody gives a flying shit about this. This is why these attempts to bring down trump fall on deaf ears. He gets 4 more years regardless.

So… Trump’s lawyer had sex with Stormy Daniels, pays her off then says it’s a gift from Donald Trump. Now I see where this is going… Trump’s lawyer is or was blackmailing Donald Trump.

Oh please. The Stormy Daniels story is just another trashy attempt by Dems and demented liberal media to make something stick to President Trump. They have no moral high ground here. They covered for murderous pervert Ted Kennedy & serial pervert Bill Clinton WHILE he was POTUS!

Trump’s lawyer says he (the lawyer) paid off Stormy Daniels out of his own pocket. (This is not a normal part of the attorney-client relationship.)https://t.co/hAoMuzPSMO
