Donald Trump has accidentally confirmed a detail of his affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. Previously Trump has attacked reporting on the affair, which reportedly occurred while he was married to Melania Trump.

“Without apparently realizing it, Trump offered strong evidence that the former porn star who alleged she’d had an affair with him in 2006 was telling the truth,” the Washington Post reported after Trump held a small campaign rally on August 20th.

During the rally, Trump said, “I’m not a big fan of sharks.”

That weird remark confirms an anecdote Daniels told about her affair with Trump.

“The strangest thing about that night — this was the best thing ever,” Daniels said. “You could see the television from the little dining room table and he was watching Shark Week and he was watching a special about the U.S.S. something and it sank and it was like the worst shark attack in history. He is obsessed with sharks. Terrified of sharks.”

Trump later used his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to working through the publisher for the National Enquirer to buy off Daniels’ silence about the affair before the 2016 election.

About Stormy Daniels

Stormy Daniels was born Stephanie Clifford on March 17, 1979. She is a porn star, exotic dancer, writer and director. She has won several awards in the adult industry, and is a member of the NightMoves, AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame. In 2009, a recruitment effort tried to get Daniels to challenge David Vitter for the 2010 Senate election in Louisiana, where she is from.

In 2018, Daniels was involved in a legal dispute with Donald Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen. Trump and his personal surrogates paid $130,000 in hush money to silence Daniels about an extramarital affair she said she had with Trump in 2006. Trump’s spokespeople have repeatedly denied the affair, despite ample evidence and his history of cheating on his spouses. Trump’s insiders have accused Daniels of lying.

Details On The Trump-Stormy Daniels Affair

In January 2018 the Wall Street Journal revealed that pornstar Stormy Daniels received $130,000 for signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) just before the 2016 presidential election about an affair she had with Trump in 2006. Daniels subsequently signed a statement that her lawyer and publicist witnessed denying that she had a sexual affair with Trump.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen subsequently pleaded guilty to 8 criminal charges including one campaign finance violation for the Daniels payment in August of 2018. Cohen admitted under oath that he had paid Daniels “in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office” (Referring to Donald Trump). Both Trump and his attorney (former New York City mayor) Rudy Giuliani claimed that Trump personally paid back Cohen in 2017 and used no campaign money. Cohen was then sentenced to three years in federal prison on multiple charges.

Daniels filed three lawsuits, arguing that the non-disclosure agreement was invalid, that she was defamed, and that Cohen colluded with her previous attorney Keith Davidson against her interests when he negotiated the payment. Daniels sued Trump and Cohen. The first lawsuit was dismissed by the courts. The second ordered Daniels to pay almost $300,000 in legal fees and court sanctions and as of May 2019 is the subject of an appeal by her. The third, which didn’t name Trump as a defendant, was settled in May 2019. The dispute attracted major media coverage and drew legal attention to Cohen’s intimate involvement in the scandal.
