On Tuesday, Stormy Daniels and her lawyer released a sketch of a man she claims threatened her and her daughter back on 2011 if she didn't keep quiet about her alleged affair with Donald Trump. In response, the president has decided to respond.

Trump on Stormy Daniels

One of the biggest news stories of 2018 has been the reported affair between Donald Trump and adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The affair allegedly took place in 2006, not long after First Lady Melania Trump gave birth to her son Barron. The story first gained traction last January when the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid Daniels $130,000 in "hush money" during the 2016 presidential election to ensure that she would keep quiet about what took place. Since then, the story has erupted into a full-blown scandal, with the FBI going as far as raiding Cohen's office to look for information on the payout.

Stormy Daniels claims that she was once threatened by a man to keep quiet over the affair, and during an interview on "The View" on Tuesday, released a sketch of what the individual allegedly looks like.

In response, Donald Trump took to Twitter on April 18 to give his thoughts for the first time. "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man," Trump tweeted. "A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!" he added. As expected, those who oppose the commander in chief didn't waste anytime hitting back.

Twitter erupts

Following Donald Trump's tweet about Stormy Daniels' sketch, critics of the president responded. "Stormy is still spanking you, Babyfingers," one tweet read.

"Thank you for putting this assholes sketch out to 50 million people, I’m sure Stormy Daniels is quite happy for the assistance," a Twitter user wrote.

"She has more credibility than you," another tweet added. "Barbara Bush a former First Lady has died and this is what you tweet. You can’t be a normal leader for ONE week. You’re a sad and pathetic man Donnie. You’re horrible past is catching up with you," an additional tweet noted.

"If anyone knows about con jobs, it's you," a social media user wrote.

"The fact that you've even addressed this personally tells us everything," a follow-up tweet read. "Lol, they actually got you to retweet the sketch! You got beat by a p*rnstar again (no Forbes required this time)!" a Twitter user posted. As the mockery continued to pour in, it showed that the rift between Trump and his critics was not going to end anytime soon.
