Trump Compared Porn Star to His Daughter. Or in Other Words, Wednesday in America.

In Touch Weekly published an interview with porn star Stormy Daniels from 2011, before the signing of an NDA that precluded her from speaking about her sexual encounter with Donald Trump. Daniels revealed that during the celebrity golf event in Lake Tahoe in 2006, Trump told her that she was “just like his daughter”.

“We had really good banter,” Daniels told In Touch. “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter” 

This is unlikely to mean Tiffany Trump, who was 11 at the time (although who knows these days), and likely was in reference to Ivanka Trump, whom the president has made numerous creepy comments about. As the Independent reported

When Donald Trump was watching his 16-year-old daughter Ivanka host the 1997 Miss Teen USA pageant, he turned to the then-Miss Universe and asked: “Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot, right?”

That anecdote, told to the New York Times by Brook Antoinette Mahealani Lee, appears to be the first recorded incident of the Republican presidential candidate and reality TV star making comments about his daughter’s body which those present have deemed inappropriate.

In the almost 20 years since, Mr Trump has called his eldest daughter “voluptuous”. He’s said it’s OK to describe her as “a piece of ass”, though she is a senior executive in his business empire. And he’s said that, if she wasn’t his daughter, “perhaps [he’d] be dating her”. 

So we now know that while cheating on his wife and sleeping with a porn star, the president compared said porn star to his goddamn daughter. Or in other words Wednesday in Trump’s America. 

Trump’s legal team are busy denying any affair took place, but given the circumstantial evidence (of which there is much) and the president’s long and storied history of lying about everything and anything, Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) is a much more reliable source. In Touch is also apparently about to release the unedited version of the 2011 interview which will she more light on her relationship with Trump. 

If anyone needed more evidence that we are living in Bizzarro World, look no further than today. Just imagine if this story had been about President Obama — how long would he have lasted? Republicans would have torn him to pieces and the Democrats would have abandoned him just as quickly. But in today’s world, the news that the president had sex with a porn star and compared her to his daughter is just Wednesday.
