What if people talked about Melania Trump the way they do Stormy Daniels?
The First Lady is a former adult model, having posed for topless photos wearing handcuffs and holding a gun.
Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti made this point in response to Rudy Giuliani saying that he does not "respect" Daniels and suggesting that she cannot be believed in her account of sex with the president because of her profession.
"I don't believe Stormy Daniels," he said. "The business you were in entitles you to no degree of credibility. And, secondly, explain to me how she could be damaged. I mean, she has no reputation. If you're going to sell your body for money, you have no reputation."
"These comments are piggish and they are disgusting and he should be embarrassed for himself," Avenatti said. "What he's suggesting is, that if a woman participates in pornography somehow they're not entitled to respect and somehow they're not entitled to be believed."
He then brought up Melania Trump's nude modeling.
"There is nothing wrong with that," Avenatti said. "That doesn't mean she's not entitled to our respect. That doesn't mean she's not entitled to credibility. No one would say that about Mrs. Trump because it would be outrageous. And yet somehow Rudy Giuliani thinks that my client isn't entitled to be believed because she was in the adult industry. It's disgusting and this guy's an absolute pig."
