Since the start of the new year, the drama surrounding the alleged affair between Donald Trump and adult film star Stormy Daniels has dominated the headlines. Following her much-anticipated interview on "60 minutes," Daniels revealed new details that quickly created a buzz on social media.
Stormy on "60 Minutes"
It all started back in January when the Wall Street Journal broke the news on the alleged affair between Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels that reportedly took place back in 2006, just months after his marriage to Melania Trump.
The report also points to a "hush money" paid to Daniels by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, of $130,000. The White House has not addressed the issue often, with the president having remained silent as of press time. Daniels' lawyer and Cohen's lawyer have debated the issue on cable news, leading to the "60 Minutes" interview on March 25 broadcasted on CBS.
Sitting down with Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes," Stormy Daniels opened up about her reported sexual relationship with Donald Trump.
Daniels, then 27, explained that she had unprotected sex with Trump on the night they met, when he was 60 years old, confirming that it was consensual. "He was like, ‘wow, you are special. You remind me of my daughter," Trump alleged told the adult film star on the night they met. Daniels noted that she was not physically attracted to the former host of "The Apprentice," but felt obligated to take part in the affair because she went up to his room alone.
When asked about another time she was alone with Trump, Daniels spoke about how she got out of an attempt of sex by Trump. "He made me sit and watch an entire documentary on shark week. He came and sat next to me and touched my hair, and put his hand on my leg and referenced back (to the previous sexual encounter) about how great it was," Daniels told Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes," before explaining how she changed the subject and quickly left.
Daniels then cited back to an incident with a man in a parking lot who threatened her to keep quiet. "I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” she said, claiming the man told her to "forget the story," noting he added, "That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom."
With Stormy Daniels speaking out about her relationship with Donald Trump, critics of the president decided to voice their opinion on social media.
"Gross--Nothing could be so vomit inducing than s*x with Trump. Family values!" one tweet read.
"Who says that? And, how is that something to make me feel wanted as a woman? In my entire life I would never ever wanted to be compared to someone's daughter. Inc*st much?" one Twitter user added. "How many times does he tell women that they remind him of his daughter??? Sick!" another tweet added. "Watching 60 Minutes and Donald Trump is a john who paid Stormy Daniels for sex without a condom.
This dude is an embarrassment to the office of the #POTUS Of course he will say it is a lie but that's what he does," a tweet noted.
"Seeing as how he's always talking to & about his daughter very inappropriately & touches her in a way that fathers DON'T .. no one should be surprised," a follow-up tweet read. "I wonder if he told all the women he slept with that they remind him of his daughter?" a social media user wondered.
