After Stormy Daniels spoke out, she was harassed by Trumpers everywhere. Vox reported that Donald Trump’s fans called her derogatory names on social media — the president at the time even referred to her as “horse face” — but that’s not why Daniels regretted spilling the beans about the affair. Instead, she worried that speaking her truth wouldn’t matter in the end, as she explained in a May 2023 interview with “Good Morning Britain.”
Airing her concern that Trump will “get away with” the criminal charges he faces for falsifying business records tied to the hush-money payments, Daniels said, “I spoke my truth, but it was just for nothing. I just feel like if people don’t want to face facts and see the truth … then you know what, I’d rather have the time back with my family.” She added that the whole debacle has jaded her belief in humanity, stating “Truth doesn’t seem to matter.”
In June, Trump maintained his innocence in the face of “34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree,” per the New York Times. Though the ex-POTUS has admitted to reimbursing Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payout, he sees no error in the way he went about facilitating the reimbursement. As Politico notes, Trump and his team will go to trial in NYC on March 25, 2024.
