One of the biggest news stories of 2018 has been in regards to Donald Trump's alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels and the hush money that was paid to keep her quiet by the president's lawyer. Elaborating on the story was Daniels who appeared for an interview on "The View."

Stormy Daniels on "The View"

At the start of 2018, the Wall Street Journal broke a bombshell story claiming that Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 during the 2016 election to keep her silent about an affair she allegedly had with the president back in 2006.

As expected, Cohen denied any wrongdoing, with Trump and the White House keeping their remarks to a minimum. Despite this, Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti have made the rounds in the media, going as far as claiming that she was once threatened by an unnamed man to keep the affair private. The story reached a fever pitch last week when the FBI raided Cohen's office to obtain information about the payout in question.

As seen during the April 17 edition of "The View," Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti appeared and didn't hold back.

When asked why she decided to go public even though she is currently being sued by Donald Trump, Daniels replied, "I'm tired of being threatened...I'm sorry, I'm done being bullied." Daniels then was asked what she thought about Trump denying the affair and knowing about the "hush money" she was allegedly paid by Cohen. "I work in the adult business and I'm a better actor than he is," Daniels joked to the laughter of the studio audience.

Co-host Meghan McCain then pressed Stormy Daniels on if she was making herself available to the public because she wanted to become more famous.

"There's a lot of publicity, but I didn't do it for that because this is not what I want to be known for," she explained.

Sketch released

Not stopping there, Stormy Daniels elaborated on the time she was allegedly threatened while making her way to a yoga class with her infant daughter. Daniels claims that a man threatened her and her child if she spoke out about the affair with Donald Trump, noting that she was too embarrassed to even tell her husband about what took place. "I didn't tell my husband at the time, I was embarrassed," she later added, noting, "I didn't want him to think I was a bad mom or that I put my daughter in danger." At this time, Daniels and Michael Avenatti released a sketch of the individual who confronted Daniels, saying "it looks exactly like him."
