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?’”

Cop says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot following Trump’s racist targeting of The Squad

Published

on

Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.

Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
