Adult film star Stephanie Clifford, otherwise known as Stormy Daniels has spoken out on her affair with Trump including their sexual encounter, the hush money and what she feels was a threat on her person.
In an interview with CNN reporter Anderson Cooper, the porn star spoke on how she met Trump and how they carried on and how he also dangled the opportunity to be on the Apprentice.
She said that a fear for her family and crippling pressure made her sign the non-disclosure agreement.
She said;“I think the fact that I didn’t even negotiate, I just quickly said yes to this very, you know, strict contract,” Daniels said. “And what most people will agree with me extremely low number. It’s all the proof I need.”
Daniels revealed that the sexual encounter with Trump took place at a Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006 not long after Melania had given birth to their son, Barron.
Daniels talked about their time in his hotel room and how they got to be comfortable with each other and how she even spanked him a bit on his bottom with a magazine cover.
“So he turned around and pulled his pants down a little—you know had underwear on and stuff and I just gave him a couple swats,” Daniels said.
She stated that she went into the bathroom and on coming out saw Trump sitting at the edge of the bed; “I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone’s room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, ‘Well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this,’” she said.
She then stated that they had unprotected sex and that while she wasn’t attracted to him and didn’t really want to do it, it was entirely consensual.
Daniels also added the darker parts of their relationship, narrating a story of a time when Cohen, Trump’s lawyer who initially paid her off, threatened her after finding out that she had tried to tell her story to a celebrity gossip magazine. She said that he was in a parking lot with her infant daughter when a man approached her and said, “That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”
She said the man also added; “Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.”
She said she was bullied to sign the non-disclosure agreement and that she would have left it as that if only she wasn’t made to look like a liar, “I was perfectly fine saying nothing at all, but I’m not okay with being made out to be a liar, or people thinking that I did this for money and people are like, ‘Oh, you’re an opportunist. You’re taking advantage of this,’” Daniels said.
“Yes, I’m getting more job offers now, but tell me one person who would turn down a job offer making more than they’ve been making, doing the same thing that they’ve always done?”
