Adult actress Stormy Daniels has described her supposed night with US President Donald Trump in a tell-all interview.
We’re only 17 days into the new year but it seems like it’s ‘a new controversy, same old story’ situation with the world’s most polarising/baffling leader – start as you mean to go on I guess?
In wake of Trump’s most recent scandal – where he allegedly used derogatory language to describe Hati, South America and Africa as ‘sh*thole countries‘ – he’s also dealing with fresh allegations of cheating on the First Lady, Melania Trump.
While scandalous, it’s worth bearing in mind the alleged cheating is said to have taken place before he ran for president.
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, is said to have been paid a $130,000 (£93,446) gagging order for her part in the alleged affair.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has already denied the claims, ‘vehemently’ dismissing any ‘occurrence’ between her and the President.
However, this hasn’t stopped gossip magazine, In Touch, from delving into the allegation.
While Trump and Daniels have denied any wrongdoing, via a letter released by Cohen last week, In Touch’s interview with Ms Daniels says otherwise.
Daniels’ explosive interview, which was conducted in 2011, reveals intimate details of her and the current POTUS’ illicit liaisons.
In her own words, she all but confirms she and Trump did have sexual intercourse at his hotel suite in Lake Tahoe, Nevada back in 2006 – less than four months after Melina had given birth to their son Barron.
Daniels described her supposed night with Trump as ‘textbook generic’ sex.
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.’.
They first met at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006 where she says:
[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.
She claims the former Apprentice host approached her later at the gift lounge of her adult-film company, Wicked Pictures, and asked for her number, which she gave him, before posing together for a photo op.
Daniels says she accepted his invitation to dinner but when she got to his hotel, Trump was laying on his couch, wearing his pyjamas and watching TV (sounds like a normal day in White House so far).
The two ended up having dinner in his suite before she went to the bathroom to freshen up and when she came back, she said:
… he was sitting on the bed and he was like, ‘Come here.’ And I was like, ‘Ugh, here we go.’ And we started kissing.
Afterwards, she says:
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.’
At the time Daniels gave the interview she took and passed a polygraph test – a lie detector test for those of you unfamiliar with the term.
Her account was also confirmed by her friend Randy Spears and ex-husband, Mike Moz.
While the information is certainly damming, it’s unlikely to derail Trump’s, otherwise, controversial presidency.
