Trump Vows to ‘Go After’ ‘Horseface’ Stormy Daniels After Judge Tosses Defamation Suit

“She knows nothing about me, a total con!” president says of porn star

President Donald Trump laced into Stormy Daniels in sharply personal terms on Tuesday, calling the porn star “Horseface” and vowed to continue pursuing damages against her after a judge tossed out her defamation suit against him on Monday.

After citing a Fox News headline of the ruling that said that he is “entitled to full legal fees,” the president wrote, “Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas.”

He added, in an apparent allusion to a non-disclosure agreement about her accusation of an extramarital affair, which he has long denied, “She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!” The president also spelled Daniels’ name incorrectly.

In the suit that was tossed, Daniels and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, had said that Trump’s use of the word “con” toward her, along with his denials of what she said was their extramarital affair, constituted defamation.

Monday’s ruling does not affect a second lawsuit that Daniels filed about the 2016 NDA that was negotiated in the weeks before the presidential election, in which Daniels was paid $130,000.

Both Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti responded defiantly within minutes of the tweet Tuesday.

“Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his…umm…shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN!,” said Daniels. “And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny.”

The tweet is one of Trump’s most cutting personal attacks against any women on Twitter and evokes immediate comparisons to his infamous tweets against MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski. Last year, the president said she was “bleeding badly” from a facelift the last time he saw her at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
