Rudy Giuliani appears on Fox News (screen grab)

President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, appeared on Fox & Friends on Thursday that adult film star Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 to cover up an alleged affair in an effort to protect the Trump campaign.

The morning after Giuliani admitted to Fox News host Sean Hannity that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, the Trump attorney returned to the conservative network to speak to the hosts of Fox & Friends.

"She was alleging -- although there's the contrary letter she signed that it never happened -- that there was a one-time affair," the president's lawyer explained. "And I think when Cohen heard $130,000, he said, 'My God, this is cheap. They come cheap. Let me get the thing signed up and signed off.'"

"Imagine if that came out on Oct. 15, 2016 in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton," Giuliani added. "Cohen didn't even ask. Cohen made it go away. He did his job."
