Stormy Daniels cancels appearance on ‘The View’

Stormy Daniels is pulling the plug on an appearance on “The View” that had been scheduled for Thursday.

The adult film star, who reportedly had an affair with President Trump in 2006, canceled the sit-down the day after an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in which she cast doubt on a statement released in her name denying the relationship.

“Did you sign this letter that was released today?” Kimmel asked on Tuesday night.

“I don’t know, did I?” replied Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford. She later added, “But that does not look like my signature, does it?”

{mosads}ABC had touted the “View” booking as an opportunity for Daniels to “join the co-hosts at the Hot Topics table live” and “discuss her newfound attention since the allegations have been in the headlines.”

But on Wednesday’s show, co-host Whoopi Goldberg told the audience, “Stormy Daniels was supposed to be coming on ‘The View.’ We are not sure that’s happening anymore.”

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that one of Trump’s lawyers paid Daniels $130,000 just before the 2016 election as part of a nondisclosure agreement on the affair, which allegedly occurred after Trump’s marriage to now-first lady Melania Trump.

Following the Journal’s report, In Touch magazine published the transcript from a 2011 interview with Daniels in which she detailed her relationship with Trump. The magazine says Daniels passed a lie-detector test and Trump’s attorney had threatened to sue if it released the interview.

ITK has learned that Daniels cited criticism from “The View” guest co-host S.E. Cupp in canceling her appearance.

Last week, Cupp knocked Kimmel for booking Daniels for his show immediately following Trump’s State of the Union address.

“Monica Lewinsky was also caught having an affair with a president,” Cupp said. “Jimmy Kimmel needs to have [Lewinsky] on his show if he expects us to watch an interview with Stormy Daniels and take it seriously.”

On his Tuesday show, Kimmel played multiple clips of Lewinsky appearing as a guest on his show over the years.

“We do want to point out that S.E. was a guest on the show — wasn’t a permanent co-host,” Goldberg said on Wednesday, “and she gave her opinion, and that’s what the show is. We give our opinion.”
