Trump Boasts He Can Now Go After ‘Horseface’ Stormy Daniels After Defamation Suit Tossed

President Donald Trump just can’t help himself when it comes to attacking women, especially over their appearance.

A day after a federal judge tossed out adult film star Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against Trump, the president took to Twitter to denigrate both Daniels and her media-hungry attorney (and possible presidential candidate) Michael Avenatti.

Quoting a Fox News story on the dismissal that also notes that the president is entitled to legal fees, Trump said he can now “go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas.”

He added of the woman he had an extramarital affair with and paid off to be quiet about it, “She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!”

Trump has regularly physically denigrated women who are critical of him or have accused him of boorish/inappropriate behavior, so this is just par for the course at this point. It will create a bit of outrage in the news cycle until he says or does something else to overtake it in the next few hours. Because this is the reality we currently live in.

Daniels filed a lawsuit against Trump in April over his tweet calling her story about a man threatening her not to come forward on her affair with Trump a “total con job!” The judge ruled that the tweet represented “rhetorical hyperbole” and didn’t reach the level of defamation. The ruling was not related to Daniels’ other suit related to the $130,000 hush payment Trump and his then-attorney Michael Cohen made to her before the 2016 election.
