The 9th Circuit's direction for Stormy Daniels to pay Donald Trump after her defamation case failed on appeal prompted a revealing statement by the adult film star who called Trump "Tiny."
After the court order was announced, Trump took to his channels, releasing a statement again denying he had an affair with the entertainer.
"As I have stated many times throughout the years, I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I ever have wanted to."
"The ruling was a total and complete victory and vindication for and of me."
"The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have been started or allowed to happen, and I am pleased that my lawyers could bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal."
"Now all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me."
After being ordered to pay $300,000 in legal fees, Daniels fired back with her own statement.
"He cornered me as I was exiting a restroom and intimidated me into unprotected intercourse."
"Later, he had Michael Cohen pay me hush money to not disclose what happened to me and the things I was told that could damage his campaign."
"Mr. Grab Them by the P***** definitely has a history of doing whatever he wants to women and has a penchant for intimidation."
"But make no mistake. Trump's lies about me was very much a lie and was intended to damage me in the public."
"Daniels went on to explain the trials and tribulations she had with her lawyer Michael Avenatti over the course of the suit resulting in his eventual termination from the case."
She concluded by saying:
"Still, it is a sad reality that in this country, a known and proven predator can openly brag about assaulting women and become president and be awarded money for his bad behavior."
"My heart goes out to the others that that have been victimized by Trump."
In her tell-all book, Daniels described Trump's manhood as "the mushroom character in Mario Kart," calling it "unusual" and akin to a "toadstool."
The statement created a breeding ground for jokes online:
"Remember when Donald Trump gave Stormy Daniels 45 seconds of the worst sex in her life?"
One person said:
"Perhaps the most effective nickname of all is the one Stormy Daniel’s uses for Trump: 'Tiny.'"
She says she'd rather go to jail than pay a penny to Trump. Stormy received sympathy online regarding the 9th Circuit decision.
"Who agrees that Stormy Daniels shouldn’t pay Donald Trump a penny of the $300,000 in attorney's fees for her failed defamation lawsuit?"
"I feel for @StormyDaniels. Her story is powerful. #staystrong
"I agree with her statement on the ridiculous WIN for Trump on their lawsuit! Stormy is highly qualified and a FAR better person than U.S President Donald Trump!"
Someone else posted:
"I believe you Stormy."
"You are strong as a mountain."
"F*** trump and f*** avenatti and f*** our judicial system that lets predators get away with these crimes!!"
"You’re a hero for standing up to that bully and the injustices of our country."
"Thanks for reminding people of the truth."
Many are disgusted with the way the court decided in the case, but applauded Daniels for her bravery in speaking up and pursuing justice.
