Earlier this month, InTouch re-published a 2011 interview they did with porn star Stormy Daniels about an alleged affair she had with Donald Trump five years earlier. Stormy allegedly broke a $ 130,000 a month settlement agreement and an NDA to do that interview.
Trump has denied the affair every took place (an affair that allegedly took place right after Melania Trump gave birth to Barron). Melania may have responded by bailing on a work gig in Switzerland. And then, on the eve of last night’s State of the Union address, Stormy released a statement denying with absolute certainty that the affair never took place. Stormy also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and here’s the thing – she’s not so sure about the legitimacy of that statement either.
Here’s Stormy’s statement as it was released yesterday to news outlets like The Washington Post:
To Whom It May Concern
Over the past few weeks I have been asked countless times to comment on reports of an alleged sexual relationship I had with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago.
The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 20011 [sic], 2016, 2017, and now again in 2018. I am not denying this affair because I was paid “hush money” as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.
I wall have no further comment on this matter. Please feel free to check me out on Instagram at @thestormydaniels.
During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jimmy Kimmel brought up the statement. Jimmy had done a little investigative journalism and discovered that the signature on the bottom of Stormy’s statement didn’t match the signature on several of his glossy 8×10 photos of her. Stormy played coy and implied the signatures might not be the same, and said she had no idea where the statement came from. However, if you ask Stormy’s attorney Keith Davidson, he’ll say she was just having fun. Keith told The Guardian:
“She was having fun on Kimmel and being her normal playful self. The signature is indeed hers as she signed the statement today in the presence of me and her manager, Gina Rodriguez.”
Stormy didn’t really say much else (the interview was like playing charades with someone who keeps forgetting they can use their hands). But she did say that gave an interview to InTouch in 2011, just “not as it was written.” Jimmy then presented stormy with three carrots and asked her to point to which one most resembles Trump’s junk. When she wouldn’t play along, he brought out some puppets, because (say it, RuPaul) everyone loves puppets! But again, Stormy wasn’t really budging and stuck with her whole “I don’t know nothing about nothing” act.
And Melania showed up at the SOTU address last night. Just not with Trump. CNN says that Melania broke tradition by arriving in a separate vehicle from her husband. Instead, she chose to ride with the guests who were invited to sit in the First Lady’s special box. CNN says they were told Trump and Melania took the same vehicle back to the White House. Many will say Melania didn’t want to show up with Trump because she’s still pissed at him. But I think it had everything to do with Melania deciding to wear an all-white suit. The last thing a First Lady who barely shows up to anything wants to do is show up to an event with a huge greasy orange makeup stain and stringy beige hair fibers down one side of her ensemble.
