Days Before Election Stormy Daniels Threatened To Go Public Because Trump’s Payment Had Not Arrived

The Washington Post reports:

The 2016 election was less than a month away, and Donald Trump’s attorney had blown the deadline for paying Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the future president.

In an Oct. 17 email, an attorney for Daniels — a porn star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — threatened to cancel the nondisclosure agreement by the end of the day.

That very morning, Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, had created a limited liability company, public records show, that ultimately would serve as a vehicle for Daniels’s payoff. But the money had not arrived.

A second email to Cohen, a short time after the first, said Daniels was calling the deal off. “Please be advised that my client deems her settlement agreement canceled and void,” Daniels’s lawyer, Keith Davidson, wrote in the email, which The Washington Post obtained.

The payment arrived ten days later.

    When has Trump not tried to renege on paying a debt?

    It does take balls to try to stiff your blackmailer.

    Or intense stupidity. Either one.

      …but underneath all this she’s got Donnie and she’s peeing on him. Fixed it

    • jeffg166

      She did it to up her DVD sales. Plus it’s great PR for her on going hooking.

      • Reality.Bites

        I think most men want to think there is no way the sex worker will reveal their liaison.

    • Treant

      I have no intention of helping her or even of approving of her.

      But I do watch this with amusement.

    • Reality.Bites

      And no one is pretending she’d be a credible or qualified presidential candidate.

      Society could tolerate Trump the crooked real estate developer. Not Trump the traitor.

  • Bambino

    Good for her. Obviously someone who is smarter than Melonoma who signed her life away to a piece of turd.

    • Blake J Butler

      She’s not that dumb, she wanted a rich, American, husband that resembles her father, she married him gave him a child, and is enjoying the high life until he dumps her ass when she gets wrinkles or her breasts begin to sag. Not like he isn’t already cheating on her. She isn’t that dumb, but she is because her plan wasn’t well thought out for the long term.

      • Reality.Bites

        It’s also not such a high life. She’s 47 years old and what social life she has is with much older, dreadfully boring people who she knows would never give her the time of day if they weren’t forced to.

        It’s not jetting around the world, seeing wonderful things and eating in wonderful places.

        She could have married someone earning $500k a year and had a much better life.

  • Lizard

    I’m torn between thinking “She’s a manipulative gold digger who gives women a bad name” and “Good for her for understanding the parameters of her NDA contract and expecting to see it fulfilled as signed.”

    Can I think both?

    • Natty Enquirer

      How about, “She had a good lawyer who wanted his commission”?

    • Bambino

      Her profession is sex worker. It’s the clients responsibility to impose the NDA before the service commence. Especially those who cares to maintain a social status. The bone spur cadet married three times. If he had insist prenups with these wives why not have one with strangers he barely knows?

    • Treant

      I can’t really see this as some grand gender argument. Some women act like that. Some men act like that. She’s a manipulative gold digger who’s representative of some human beings.

      Also, she (or her lawyer) understood the parameters of the NDA and expects to see the agreement fulfilled as signed. When you’re a manipulative gold digger that statement had better be true as well.

    • AstroCat

      not to mention $130,000 to suck something that would fit into a pistachio shell… I’m sure it wasn’t exactly exhausting work. Stormy probably breaks more of a sweat flossing her teeth.

      • yes b’y

        lol

      • Devon Rodriguez

        Like putting a tic tac into a whales mouth

        • AstroCat

    • Reality.Bites

      Oh believe me, they were paid too.

      • LesbianTippingHabits


        Well, at least Donald Trump promised to pay them. But he didn’t.

    • Uncle Mark

      Why the hush money? Stormy said the sex was nothing to talk about

      Me thinks a few people are going to find out how expensive blackmail can be when the “victim” won’t pay

  • Devon Rodriguez

    The Republican leadership, with a couple of notable exceptions, are profiles in complicity and cowardice.

    They just ride the Trump wave on its peaks and valleys, and hope they will be able to jump from their boards right before Trump crashes into the rocks — at which time they’ll exclaim their repugnance.

    Likewise, many Evangelicals (all white) turn their backs on the gospel they falsely claim to be spreading to gorge themselves like pigs at the trough of Trump’s hypocritical pledges of allegiance to their “values,” but they will wash their hands like it is covered with excrement when he crashes and burns.

    These are individuals lacking any principles except expediency. They shall have their reward.

    • jeffg166

      Who are the notable exceptions?

      • Charlie In SF

        The Bush clan. They voted for Hillary.

      Actually they proudly show off their token hate-preachers of color, too.

        • Friday

          Well, a few of em have been caught molesting said congregations, but anyone can apparently call themselves a ‘pastor’ or whatever.

  • billbear1961

    Why didn’t you go public–WHY?!

    • Cuberly Deux

      Would it have made a difference?

      Not to be a jerk but Cult45ers just don’t care. His 30% base of support just isn’t going away.

      • billbear1961

        I don’t know, but it was worth a TRY.

        • Cuberly Deux

          True.

          I think I remember reading that after the pussy grabbing tape was released his base actually got even more determined in their support.

          Yep, they’re hypocritical white morons.

          • Gil

            apologies to morons

      • Lizard

        Maybe, maybe not. The Access Hollywood tape made a lot more waves then than it would have if it came out now. People weren’t quite as inured to his bullshit in October 2016.

        Of course, it doesn’t appear to have made much of a dent in his supporters, so who knows.

      • Treant

        Russia would have simply flipped a few hundred thousand more votes in the machines and we’d be in the same spot.

        • Ross

          Exactly.

      She is free to do so. But is it really in service of her brand to give details that make future clients think, “Ick”?

      Dear Dead Daddy is so proud…but mostly dead

  • GayOldLady

    At this point I believe that every woman who’s signed an NDA with Trump to cover up his affairs, sexual assaults, sexual harassment, etc, should step forward and force him to sue them. I don’t think he would because that would mean he’d be forced to publicly justify paying them and making them sign an NDA. He already has one foot in the grave, if all of the women would step forward together he’d be finished.

    • bzrd

      tell that to Gloria Aldridge, might get the ball rolling

    • Reality.Bites

      Thing is though, any woman who does so, even without fear of lawsuits, has much to lose and little to gain by speaking up.

      Society isn’t kind in general to women who speak up, but speaking up against a Republican sexual predator means you get death threats. Credible ones

    • MonochromeMouse

      The funny thing is, the president can’t sue. There would be absolutely nothing he could legally do about it now. You give up a lot of rights semi-permanently, and a few others permanently, when you become president.

    • If only his awful supporters would care. At this point, it’s pretty clear they’re fine with ANYthing.

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      I’d love to be on that civil jury.

  • Devon Rodriguez

    It is reported that Trump wanted Stormy because she reminded him of Ivanka

    If true, this isn’t the first time that Trump has made remarks about Ivanka’s appearance. During a 2006 appearance on The View, Trump gushed about his daughter’s body and told the panel, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” And in a 2004 interview with Howard Stern, he told the radio host it was okay to refer to Ivanka as “a piece of ass.”

    • Gil

      We all know what ” dating ” means..

      • Devon Rodriguez

        EWWWWWWWW

    • Friday

      “Family values.”

    • bzrd

      tickle, tickle
      lucky for her his fingers are very small

    • Scout

      They were on some show like the View, and were asked what they had in common. Ivanka started to say something about “real estate” and the Donald blurted out “Sex!”. Ivanka had to do that thing where she laughed and shook her head like “that crazy guy and his jokes”

    • Reality.Bites

      Don’t forget – that’s not what Ivanka really looks like.

      He reshaped his daughter into his sexual fantasy.

      (Think of that next time you’re dwelling a bit too much on your parents’ shortcomings)

    • lymis

      Well, if you consider someone’s children to be a piece of them, in the “chip off the old block” sense, ALL his kids seem to take after their dad, the ass.

      He’s almost the Platonic Ideal of ass.

      At least Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost got to look up Stormy Daniels on his work computer.

  • Gerry Fisher

    She’s such a patriot. [sigh]

    • One of the few people to get Trump to pay his bill.

  • What I find so stunning about this is how, in any other administration, this might be a career-ending scandal… but with our current administration, it’s just Scandal #683 and there’s barely enough print space or TV time to squeeze in a mention of it.

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      Well, way back when, the new Clinton Administration certainly had its share of scandals.

      Hillary was convinced the media were out to get her – and she was right.

  • It wouldn’t have mattered if she had. No one voting for Trump would have given a crap.

  • LesbianTippingHabits


    I’m glad Stormy Daniels got Donald Trump to pay up – eventually.

    At least she had some leverage over his attorney. Not everyone does.

    Sad !
