Responding to President Donald Trump‘s claim he was unaware of the $130,000 payoff made to porn actress Stormy Daniels for her silence on their alleged affair, Daniels said, “I work in the adult business, and I’m a better actress than he is.”
She made the remark during her appearance on The View Tuesday after a clip was played showing Trump speaking to reporters on Air Force Once earlier this month, stating he didn’t know where his attorney Michael Cohen got the money for the payout and that they’d have to ask Cohen about it instead.
Daniels appeared on the show with her attorney Michael Avenatti, who said he was flabbergasted by Trump’s claims.
“It shocked me because, you know, it’s one thing to be undisciplined in life, it’s another thing to be undisciplined in litigation,” Avenatti said. “And when you have a client that is undisciplined like that and just spouts off, that’s a very dangerous thing when he’s involved in a lawsuit, and what’s ironic to me about this is that’s a Thursday, and then on Monday, the attorney that he told the American people they could ask the questions to, that attorney’s offices and home is raided by the FBI. That’s a pretty shocking chain of events in a very short period of time.”
