The 60 Minutes interview with the washed-up porn star and director Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump, will be broadcast on Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m. on the CBS network.
Although the president has denied having an affair with Daniels she talks to Anderson Cooper about the alleged relationship she had with the president back in 2006 and 2007. Along with Daniel’s own account of what went on during the alleged affair, the 60 Minutes segment will also include an examination of the potential legal and political ramifications of the $130,000 payment that Mr. Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen says he made to Daniels using his own funds. Daniels accepted the money in return for signing a confidentiality agreement which she now claims isn’t binding because Trump never signed it himself.
In January Daniels was singing a different tune..
“Stormy Daniels is denying an alleged affair between herself and President Trump, according to a new statement from the adult film star confirmed by The Associated Press.
“The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 20011, 2016, 2017, and now again in 2018. I am not denying this affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened,” the adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, wrote in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed reporter on Tuesday.
The AP later confirmed with Clifford’s lawyer that the statement was authentic.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that President Trump’s personal lawyer paid the actress $130,000 in October 2016 to stay quiet about the alleged affair, one month before the presidential election.
Clifford’s statement came just hours before the adult film star is set to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on ABC.
Trump’s lawyer has “vehemently” denied the Journal’s report.
Clifford said in a 2011 interview with In Touch magazine that the affair took place with Trump at Lake Tahoe in 2006, just one year after Trump had married now-first lady Melania Trump.
The magazine said it had verified her account of the episode with friends and that Clifford had taken a lie detector test.”
Anderson Cooper conducted the interview earlier this month after the president’s attorney obtained a temporary restraining order against Daniels.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has sued in a California court claiming the confidentiality agreement between her and the president is invalid because he allegedly never signed it. The president’s attorneys are seeking to move the case to federal court and claim Daniels is liable for more than $20 million in damages for violations of the agreement.
The really tragic part of this whole story is how this attention seeking washed up porn star has sparked an onslaught of attacks against First Lady Melania Trump. She is constantly asked questions about Daniel’s lies, which is very hypocritical considering the people asking the questions are the same who in 1998 told us what Bill Clinton had done in the oval office with his intern Monica Lewinsky was none of our business.
Although Melania Trump is one of the classiest first ladies to ever grace the White House, this constant hammering has to be taking a toll on her and the family.

“Trump’s wife also isn’t expecting for Stormy to drop any scandalous new info. “Melania has already been briefed about the main content of the show, so she’s really not expecting any surprises, but she is bracing herself for the inevitable media onslaught that is sure to follow,” our insider added.
When it comes to her marriage though, the mother of one is in a pretty tough spot due to the allegations leveled against her husband. “Melania is in a pretty impossible situation, and there’s really no way she can forgive Donald, because he hasn’t admitted to any wrongdoing, or even bothered to apologize to her,” our source explained. “In private there is this icy silence between Melania and Donald, and she spends as much time with Barron, and away from her husband as possible. She’s been pretty much forced into putting on this show of unity right now, but make no mistake about it, it is simply that, a show for the public.”
Before the weekend started, Melania seemed to be upset with the President. She broke protocol by arriving to and boarding Air Force One without Trump, even though they were scheduled to arrive to the airport together. She then pushed past him and hurried off the plane after landing in Florida.”
Come on Stormy Daniels, isn’t it about time you come clean and tell the American Public why you really decided to come out with these lies now? Especially after you denied the affair for over a decade? What are you getting out of this?
