You know how Donald Trump allegedly had a months-long affair with a porn star and then paid $130,000 for her silence with campaign money?
That porn star is sitting down for an interview. Right now, we just have the teaser video (below).
But based on her facial expression when she’s asked if she ever banged Trump, we’re in for a wild ride.
"Did you have a sexual relationship with Donald Trump?" the Inside Edition interviewer asks.
Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, tries to keep a straight face.
Her face cracks, revealing a smirk.
She doesn’t say anything to that in this clip, but does acknowledge that it’s common knowledge that the two of them at least met each other. You know, through their business relationship.
They do, after all, appear in photographs together.
According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump and the porn star who worked under the title, "Stormy Daniels," had sex at least once back in 2006.
This would have been shortly after the birth of his son, Barron, and not long at all after he married his wife, Melania.
What was truly explosive about this was that it appeared that Trump, through one of his lawyers, paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing a non-disclosure agreement in 2016, just months before that fateful 2016 election that we all wish that we could somehow forget.
"Saturday Night Live is my favorite show of all time," she says.
That’s … quite something. Most people watch it (or at least clips of it), and though I have friends who’ve attended live shows and I’ve watched it since I was a kid, I never quite imagined it being a person’s favorite show.
"You were portrayed on [Weekend Update]. What was that like?"
She says that being portrayed was "terrifying," for one good reason:
"Because I love SNL and I have a little crush on him. On Colin."
Doesn’t everyone? (We’re not getting into the is Colin Jost or Pete Davidson hotter debate here)
She admits that it would make her feel bad if Colin Jost were to say something mean about her during Weekend Update.
We imagine that she was relieved. Her portrayal did little to make fun of Stormy herself and mostly served as an indictment of people who elected Trump and of those who are more fascinated with salacious scandals than they are with actual issues like national security and treason.
She admits that she "giggled" while watching.
We’d hate to see people give Stormy Daniels a hard time over being a sex worker. if anything, though we may not share her political beliefs (she’s a Sarah Palin fan, of all things), this woman deserves our sympathies.
After all, she possesses unenviable knowledge of what Trump’s penis looks like.
The alleged affair between Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump featured "generic" sex, and reportedly lasted the better part of a year.
Many are hopeful that this Inside Edition will reveal hints, even if Stormy Daniels is still bound by the NDA that she signed, about Trump’s infidelities and personal opinions.
(Beyond the fact that he’s apparently terrified of sharks, and beyond the story about him wanting to be spanked with a Forbes … the world’s worst product-placement for Forbes but actually a boon to shark preservation charities)
But it’s important that we not lose focus. This is a detail relevant to Trump’s marriage and hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of his "family values" supporters.
This is not relevant to Trump’s total inability to govern or his incompetence or his monstrous personality. For that, see … everything else about him, ever.
That said, it’s still an entertaining story, and we hope that you enjoy this clip:
