Stormy Daniels Dodges And Weaves On Kimmel

CBS News reports:

Porn star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had sexual encounter with President Trump in 2006, appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night but did not answer any questions about the alleged affair. While a statement was released from Daniels earlier Tuesday denying any affair, she appeared to hint on Kimmel’s show that she did not sign it.

Kimmel asked Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, if she had signed the statement. He compared it to her previous signed statements and even previous autographed photographs, and Daniels responded “that does not look like my signature, does it?”

She then said “I don’t know where [the statement] came from.” But she then played coy, saying “I also work for the FBI and I’m a man, according to the internet today.”

The Washington Post reports:

Daniels managed to give a non-answer answer to Kimmel’s next line of questioning, when he asked her if she had a nondisclosure agreement.

Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s attorney arranged a $130,000 payment to Daniels before the 2016 election in exchange for her silence on the matter. The lawyer, Michael Cohen, called reports of hush money to the porn star “completely false.”

“Do I?” she asked in return, offering up a shrug. Kimmel then deduced that if she didn’t have a NDA, she could probably say so. “You’re so smart, Jimmy,” Daniels said. So that was a yes, right? If so, that would explain the rest of the interview, which was a study in weirdness that somehow felt appropriate to the moment.
