Ever since the start of the new year, one of the biggest news stories has revolved around Donald Trump and his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels. In the latest twist, the president reportedly spoke about the allegations with another controversial figure in the form of boxing promoter Don King.

King and Trump

It all started back in January when the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in so-called hush money during the 2016 election to keep quiet about a reported affair she had with the president.

Unlike previous allegations of sexual misconduct or affairs, Trump has not publicly spoken out about the Daniels rumors, leaving his White House team to do the talking. Last week, Daniels appeared on CBS' "60 Minutes" to elaborate further on the story, scoring the show's highest ratings in years.

As reported by The Hill on March 31, Donald Trump has finally decided to address the Stormy Daniels story, but did so privately at his golf course with Don King, the controversial long-time boxing promoter.

According to reports, King met with Trump, as well as First Lady Melania Trump, last Thursday at his Palm Beach, Florida resort. During the evening, King and Trump had lunch and spoke about Daniels and her recent lawsuit, which the boxing promoter addressed with reporters.

"The top story, number one, is Stormy Daniels," Don King told reporters for the Washington Post.

"I told him (Trump) that it's utterly ridiculous," King continued, before adding, "I just came back from Hamburg, Germany, and they were just laughing at us." King confirmed that Trump agreed with his take on the story, quoting that the president said it was "meaningless." When asked about his thoughts on the scandal, King replied, "who cares?"

Twitter reacts

After the news broke of Donald Trump's lunch with Don King, social media had a field day.

"Both hair do’s are utterly ridiculous," one tweet read.

"Well if Don King says it, then you just know it must be true!" a Twitter user wrote with apparent sarcasm. "Two of America's top 100 con men alive today," an additional tweet added. "A con man defending another con man," yet another tweet stated.

"Looks like one of those crazy homeless guy," a social media user wrote. "The 2 dons together again. Con artist 1 and con artist 2," a follow-up tweet went on to read. The mockery continued as critics of the president made sure to hit back at himself and Don King.
