Adult film actress Stormy Daniels allegedly denied having a sexual relationship with President Donald Trump more than a decade ago — but she suggested to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that she didn’t write that statement.
The porn actress appeared Tuesday night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” shortly after the State of the Union address, to talk about her relationship with Trump.
Kimmel said the statement of denial had scuttled his planned questions, but Daniels implied she had nothing to do with it.
NEW: Stormy Daniels to @jimmykimmel:
JK: "Did you sign this letter that was released today?"
SD: “Doesn't look like my signature, does it."
JK: “Do you know where it came from? Do you have any idea?”
SD: “I do not.”

“That’s not the craziest thing I’ve read about myself on the internet today,” Daniels said.
Kimmel showed her original statement, and the actress agreed the signatures didn’t seem to match that or autographed head shots — but Daniels played coy when he asked if she’d signed the denial.
“I don’t know, did I?” Daniels said. “That doesn’t look like my signature.”
She wouldn’t say whether the statement was issued without her approval, and Daniels declined to say who might have issued the denial.
However, her attorney Keith Davidson sent an email to a Guardian reporter insisting Daniels had signed off on the denial.

Trump holds mass rally with Indian Prime Minister that was more like a campaign event than official one
US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday declared themselves united in a relentless fight against "terrorism," vowing a close, personal alliance in front of tens of thousands of Indian-Americans.
The two leaders, like-minded nationalists fond of fiery rallies and skeptical of traditional media, heaped praise on each other in an unusual joint appearance inside a football stadium in Houston.
To the bhangra beats of four drummers in saffron turbans, Trump in his dark suit and Modi in a yellow kurta and vest made a grand entrance with arms clenched together to ecstatic cheers from a crowd estimated by organizers at 50,000.
Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint
This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.
Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.
Retiring Republican lawmaker blames Trump’s ‘petty, childish bullsh*t’ for massive GOP exodus
In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.
As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."
