For the first time since the news broke of his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels, Donald Trump has addressed the issue with the media. Following Trump's remarks, social media went viral.

Trump on Stormy Daniels

It all started back in January when the Wall Street Journal broke a bombshell story [VIDEO] claiming that Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in so-called "hush money" during the 2016 election to keep quiet about an apparent affair she had with the president back in 2006.

Unlike previous allegations against him, the former host of "The Apprentice" didn't respond and has let his White House and legal team do the talking. While this has been the routine, the president appeared to finally acknowledge the scandal.

According to CNN on April 5, Donald Trump spoke to reporters on Air Force One and addressed the affair between himself and Stormy Daniels. When asked if he knew about the $130,000 in hush money paid to Daniels, Trump simply replied "no." Trump was then asked why his lawyer made the payment, Trump answered "You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen." After another reporter repeated the question, the president once again replied, "Michael is my attorney.

You’ll have to ask Michael."

Stormy backlash

After Donald Trump's first public acknowledgement of the Stormy Daniels allegations, critics of the president [VIDEO] made sure to chime in. "He might as well claim he doesn't know he's bald under that ridiculous comb-over," one tweet read.

"By making this ludicrous statement, Trump just (1) Essentially ensured Michael Cohen will be disbarred and possibly prosecuted (2) Opened the door to having to answer that same question under oath and get slapped with perjury (3) Made Michael Avenatti a deliriously happy lawyer," a Twitter user wrote.

"Doesn’t this confirm Stormy’s legal argument? Trump cannot be a party to an agreement he was unaware of which means the NDA is invalid," another tweet added.

"To be fair my mates are always paying $130,000 to p*rn stars for their silence, without telling me!" a social media user wrote. "Yeah right. Your attorney took a mortgage out on his house because he’s such a nice guy," a follow-up tweet went on to point out. As the backlash continued to pour in, the scandal surrounding Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump showed no signs of coming to an end at any point in the near future.
