On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump expressed his remarks publicly on the recent controversy surrounding film-adult star Stormy Daniels, who made public her alleged affair with Trump in 2006 when he was married to Melania. And true to form, Trump did not hesitate to speak.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, recently claimed that anonymous man threatens her around seven years ago to remain silent about the alleged affair with Trump. On Tuesday, her team released a sketch of the man.
Trump denied that the incident has ever happened. “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” he wrote on Twitter.
He added that the media were playing along with the obvious “con job.” “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” he said.

Here’s where things get even more interesting. Trump was quote-tweeting a reply from a Twitter user who posted a side-by-side shot of the sketch and Daniels’ “ex.”
“Oops! This is awkward!” wrote the Twitter user in reply to an earlier Trump tweet about California and immigration policy.

(Others, including Daily Wire Editor in Chief Ben Shapiro, have teasingly speculated that the anonymous man resembles a lot to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, circa 2011.)
Daniels told “The View” on Tuesday that she waited so long to make public the alleged threatening incident since, mainly, she didn’t want her husband to find out about the alleged sexual encounter with Trump. He apparently did not know at the time.
