In the midst of some of the most unbelievable international progress of the last six decades, President Donald J. Trump is still finding himself being harassed and harangued by an over-the-hill porn star named Stormy Daniels.
According to Daniels, she and the future President were involved in an affair nearly a dozen years ago, and Trump’s lawyers had slapped a non-disclosure agreement in her general direction in order for the supposed tryst to remain a secret. In addition to the NDA, Stormy Daniels claims that she received $130,000, as well as a visit from a Tom Brady lookalike who threatened her bodily harm if she continued to blather on about the unverified affair.
Trump has completely denied any and all of these bizarre allegations, which has only furthered the fame of the otherwise forgettable Daniels. In fact, Stormy herself admitted that this publicity stunt has been good for business, which now consists of traveling the nation and performing strip teases as a number of gentlemen’s clubs on her “Make American Horny Again” Tour. And, based on the size of Stormy’s pupils during a recent television appearance, it would seem that this windfall of cash has been fueling more than just Daniel’s travel expenses.
Now, after getting very little traction outside of the leftist mainstream media, Daniels is once again going on the offensive, taking her case to court once again, prolonging her time in the limelight even longer.
A new lawsuit from adult film star Stormy Daniels cites one of President Donald Trump’s tweets as evidence for a claim of defamation.
The new suit, filed Monday in the Southern District of New York, claims an April tweet from Trump is “false and defamatory.”
The tweet in question:

Stormy’s lawyer certainly made the suit sound like it could contain some merit…
The complaint filed by lawyer Michael Avenatti claims that Trump’s tweet accuses Daniels, born Stephanie Clifford, of committing a crime:
“Mr. Trump’s statement falsely attacks the veracity of Ms. Clifford’s account of the threatening incident that took place in 2011. It also operates to accuse Ms. Clifford of committing a crime under New York law, as well as the law of numerous other states, in that it effectively states that Ms. Clifford falsely accused an individual of committing a crime against her when no such crime occurred.”
“In making the statement, Mr. Trump used his national and international audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford,” reads the complaint.
“Mr. Trump knew that his false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world, as well as widely reported, and that Ms. Clifford would be subjected to threats of violence, economic harm, and reputational damage as a result.”
The complaint goes on to accuse Trump of defamation per se and says Daniels has suffered damages in excess of $75,000.
In reality, however, there is little evidence to back up the claim that Daniels is suing the President purely for defamation, and not for an extension in her 15 minutes of fame.
