A Washington, D.C., bar is offering a new cocktail named after the adult-film star President TrumpDonald John TrumpSasse: Trump shouldn't dignify Putin with Helsinki summit Top LGBT group projects message onto Presidential Palace in Helsinki ahead of Trump-Putin summit Hillary Clinton to Trump ahead of Putin summit: 'Do you know which team you play for?' MORE’s lawyer reportedly paid money to keep from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump.

The Brighton, a bar in D.C.’s “The Wharf” development, announced the "Stormy Daniels" drink in a tweet Saturday.

“We don’t know much about politics, but we do know a dirty cocktail when we see one,” the bar wrote. “Introducing the Stormy Daniels, $9 all weekend long.”

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Michael Cohen, then an attorney for the Trump Organization and now Trump’s personal lawyer, arranged for Stephanie Clifford, known in the industry as Stormy Daniels, to receive $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement one month before the 2016 presidential election.


Clifford had previously told sources interviewed by the newspaper that she had a consensual sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, a year after he and Melania TrumpMelania TrumpTrump arrives in Helsinki ahead of Putin meeting Princes Charles and William refused to meet Trump: report The Hill's 12:30 Report — Sponsored by Delta Air Lines — Mueller indicts 12 Russian officials for DNC hack | Trump does damage control after bombshell interview MORE were married.

Cohen told the Journal in a statement that Trump “once again vehemently denies” the encounter, but did not comment on the alleged $130,000 payment.

“This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client,” Cohen told the newspaper. “You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011.” 

Cohen also sent the paper a statement signed under the name Stormy Daniels denying the sexual encounter with Trump and saying that the rumors are “completely false.”

The White House declined to comment to the Journal about the alleged payment, but said that the allegations of the interaction between Trump and Clifford were “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”

Other D.C. bars have offered special drinks related to the Trump administration in the past. In December, The Bird offered patrons $5 “Moscow Mueller” drinks after former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. The Bird also offers discount drinks whenever Trump fires someone from the White House.
