Thanks to the Internet, Tom Brady is having a very Stormy day

Thanks to the Internet, Tom Brady is having a very Stormy day

In her first live TV interview, porn star Stormy Daniels appeared on The View with her lawyer to unveil the sketch of the man she claims threatened her in 2011 in connection to her claims of a consensual affair with Donald Trump.

Stormy Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, were met with applause when they stopped by "The View" Tuesday morning, but not from co-host Meghan McCain. They pulled out a massive surprise during the interview, too - a police sketch of the man who allegedly threatened Daniels in 2011 to stay quiet about the affair.

McCain seemed genuinely surprised, and Daniels said she thought it was "cheesy" and a poorly executed play on Trump's campaign slogan.

She continued to 60 Minutes: "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a handsome little girl". Daniels also hadn't told her husband what happened with Trump, and didn't want him to know, either.

Cohen, who is now under criminal investigation, has acknowledged arranging a $130,000 payment to Daniels.

As expected, Cohen denied any wrongdoing, with Trump and the White House keeping their remarks to a minimum.


Daniels' appearance on The View marked another attention-getting move by Daniels and Avenatti in their ongoing legal drama with Trump and his team.

Lawyers asked to help represent President Donald Trump have spurned the assignment because of worries over nonpayment and bluster. Daniels said she spends money on bodyguards, private cars and tutors for her young daughter to protect herself and her family from the negative attention.

Asked why she's making public appearances, Daniels replied, "I'm exhausted of being threatened "I'm done". She said that rumor is "just ridiculous".

According to Daniels, she wanted to make her presence known. The photo was released on the television program, The View. I'm sure you're making a lot of money, no disrespect.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said one of the reasons she did not go to the police about the threat at the time was because she had not told her husband about her liason with Trump. "I didn't want my life turned upside down".

Trump's lawyers are seeking at least US$20 million in damages from Daniels for multiple violations of a nondisclosure agreement.
