Stormy Daniels reveals what bugs her the most about how the media covers her

Published

on

Stormy Daniels has a pet peeve when it comes to how the news media covers her.

The adult performer has grown accustomed to being underestimated because of her porn past, but she’s encountering a new set of challenges after news broke of her affair with President Donald Trump — and a lawsuit challenging her nondisclosure agreement, reported The Cut.

“I wrote and directed all these great movies, I’ve directed music videos, but it’ll just overshadow all of that,” Daniels said of her lawsuit. “Years ago, I was struggling to get funding for a mainstream horror movie that I wrote. I’d get meetings, like for instance from a professional athlete who was super excited about it, but two days later they’d call back and say their manager wouldn’t let them write a check to a porn star ‘because everyone will think you f*cked her.'”

“Now I wonder if somebody gives me money, it will be because of this,” she added. “I don’t want the other parts of my life to be successful because of this.”

Daniels spoke to New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi, who also published a one-on-one interview with Trump last week, about her experience challenging the president.

“I went 10 years without even thinking about it,” she said. “It was funnier when he wasn’t the president. Now it comes with this undeserved prestige. I actually have Trump supporters come out and get pictures and autographs and just be like, ‘I just want to meet the lady that he picked to have sex with him.’ I’m like, ‘What’s wrong with you?'”

She doesn’t mind the notoriety, and says she enjoys sparring with critics and trolls on social media — but there’s one thing about media coverage of her that irritates Daniels.

“They insist upon printing my real name in every f*cking story,” Daniels said. “They don’t do that to Bruno Mars or Lady Gaga or Charlie Sheen — but even the most feminist, evolved journalists, they still think subconsciously that I’m less human and I’m not worth the respect of printing my chosen name.”

Daniels said she lost many of her old fans — middle-aged white men — when she sued the president, but she gained an unlikely audience in women who pack her strip club performances.

“Now if you go to one of my shows, it’s large groups of women, oftentimes in homemade matching Stormy shirts,” Daniels said. “They are loud, and they’re angry. They’re like, ‘F*ck Trump.’ Or they’re crying. I’m like, ‘Jesus Christ.
There’s no crying in tittie bars. What’s happening?’”

Steve Schmidt: Trump’s ‘corruption’ is dragging America into ‘banana republic territory’

Published

on

On Monday's edition of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," former George W. Bush and John McCain adviser Steve Schmidt laid into President Donald Trump's "corruption," warning that it is undermining the foundations of the rule of law.

"The corruption is just unbelievable," said Schmidt, who recently left the Republican Party to become an independent. "And if you look back to the Republican convention, Joe, when we talked about it at the time, the chants of lock them up — what I said about it at the time was it was banana republicanism."

Minimum wage workers win big union victory in anti-union Texas

Published

on

While Donald Trump’s Labor Department works to diminish employee rights, organized workers have scored an important victory deep in the heart of anti-union Texas.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner signed an executive order raising the minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2021 for 8,000 people at the city’s two airports. That’s a 65% increase for workers paid the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour. About 8,000 baggage handlers, caterers, wheelchair attendants and others benefit.

The Service Employees International Union organized the Houston workers. Workers in Denver earlier won $15 an hour by 2021. A new ordinance proposed in Minneapolis would require $15 an hour by 2022.

Here’s how Trump could unleash a horrifying ‘era of authoritarianism’ in his second term

Published

on

What happens if President Donald Trump not only survives impeachment, but goes on to win a second term? It's a prospect that chills Democrats to the bone — and for good reason.

On Monday, Politico mapped out a detailed, hypothetical scenario in which Trump wins re-election — similar to their 2016 scenario of what would happen if Trump was elected in the first place — and some of the things that people could expect in the coming years. The result would be, as former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean put it, "an era of authoritarianism."
