Trump calls Stormy Daniels 'Horseface' as she fires back at 'Tiny' Trump
On Tuesday President Donald Trump called porn-star Stormy Daniels "Horseface" and threatened to "go after" her after his court victory over his alleged former mistress.
Trump tweeted, “'Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials [sic] lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.'
@FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!'.
The tweet comes one day after a federal judge in California dismissed Daniels's defamation lawsuit against Trump and ordered Daniels to repay the president's legal fees.
Stormy Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti, replied by calling Trump a "disgusting misogynist" and a "liar" who has dishonored his family and country.
"You are a disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States. Bring everything you have, because we are going to demonstrate to the world what a complete shyster and liar you are. How many other women did you cheat on your wife with while you had a baby at home?" Avenatti tweeted.
The judge's ruling against Stormy Daniels does not affect a separate lawsuit against Trump regarding a 2016 nondisclosure agreement.
See Stormy Daniels tweet:
Daniels claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and that he paid her $130,000 during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence.
The payment is also being investigated by federal prosecutors in New York City, who have already secured a guilty plea from Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who arranged the payment.
Cohen pleaded guilty to a campaign-finance violation in connection to the payment and said Trump directed him to make it. President Trump's team has denied he had an affair with Daniels and said he had no involvement in the hush-money agreement.
Critics slammed Trump's comment, calling it the latest example of his willingness to insult the appearances of women who pose a threat to him.
"To say this is unbecoming of any man, let alone the POTUS, is a vast understatement. And to say this enables teenage boys to feel they have a license to refer to girls w such names is obvious. It’s all very embarrassing," said Rep. Ryan Costello (R-Pa.).
