Trump Launches Vile Attack on Stormy Daniels’ Appearance as She Meets With NYC Prosecutors
Looks like Donald Trump was in fine form again Wednesday, attacking adult film actress Stormy Daniels on Truth Social as she met with prosecutors as part of their ongoing investigation into hush money she received, Newsweek reports.
On Truth Social, Trump called her “horseface” again. This seems to be one of his favorite insults toward her. He’s used this term for five years as he continues to deny that he ever had an affair with Daniels.
Investigators are still looking into a $130,000 payment made to Daniels by Trump’s then-lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen on behalf of the former president in order to keep the alleged affair under wraps as the 2016 general election loomed.
Daniels spent Wednesday answering questions from prosecutors at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office who are investigating allegations that the hush money was actually an improper campaign contribution, or if any state laws were violated in reimbursing Cohen for the money he paid Daniels.

And Trump was all thundery on Truth Social. In other words, it was a normal day for him.
“I did NOTHING wrong in the ‘Horseface’ case. I see she showed up in New York today trying to drum up some publicity for herself,” Trump complained.
“I haven’t seen or spoken to her since I took a picture with her on a golf course, in full golf gear including a hat, close to 18 years ago. She knows nothing about me other than her conman lawyer, [Michael] Avanatti, and convicted liar and felon, jailbird Michael Cohen, may have schemed up. Never had an affair with her, just another false acquisition (acquisition?) by a SleazeBag. Witch Hunt!”
Trump even had more to say, “The person heading up the New York City investigation into the now ancient, and many times debunked, Stormy “Horseface” Danials matter, is none other than top DOJ (D.C.) operative Matthew Colangelo, one of Merrick Garland’s senior officials, who was quietly snuck into the local Manhattan D.A.’s Office so that DOJ could say they weren’t involved with this local persecution of a popular (75 Million Votes!) President. Who knows, though, maybe they’re there to make it legit?”
Trump never seems to put on his big boy pants when he writes these things. Deep down, he’s still the school bully. He uses words and insults that your typical fourth-grader might use. That’s all he’s ever done.
As for Avenatti, Trump forgot to mention he’s a “jailbird” as well. Daniels’ former lawyer was sentenced in June 2022 to four years in prison for stealing millions of dollars from his clients. Newsweek reports that he cheated Daniels out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in book proceeds. In December 2022, he received an additional 14 years after pleading guilty to embezzling millions of dollars from his clients.
Wednesday was also Cohen’s final day of testimony. The lawyer was sentenced in 2018 in connection with the hush money payment and he has since become one of Trump’s most vocal critics, although he denies he’s seeking revenge against the ex-president.
“This is not about him,” Cohen told the Associated Press. “This is about holding accountability, truth to power, and everything else in between.”
Trump and his lawyers are painting him as a victim, something that Trump has always done. The situation is no different here and they are painting him as a “victim of extortion” who was forced to pay Daniels, a claim that her legal team denies.
On Tuesday, Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina told NewsNation “it’s becoming more probable” that Trump may be indicted as part of the hush money probe.
Trump began the “horseface” nonsense while he was president in 2018 after a federal judge rejected a defamation suit she brought against him.
“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,” Trump said in an October 2018 speech.
And it seems like Daniels wasn’t too interested in finding out more about him. She fired back in a rather unflattering tweet:
“Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his…umm…shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality,” Daniels tweeted, “Game on, Tiny.”
We keep hearing that Trump may be indicted this week. It’s already Thursday. Let’s hope this happens. It really seems to me like there’s been a lot of talk about this. But it’s all this seems to be talk.
Time to act.
