Stormy Daniels says she worries Trump could win again in 2020

Stormy Daniels says she regularly fears that President Trump could win reelection.

“I will be voting,” the adult-film star told an audience of almost entirely women on Tuesday at The Wing in Washington.

{mosads}“Some days I’m like, ‘There’s no way — this is gonna be amazing,’” Daniels told moderator Jane Mulkerrins, a freelance journalist, when asked during the Q&A session about the prospects of what might happen in the 2020 presidential election.

“Other days I’m like, ‘This motherf—er’s going to win again,’” she said of Trump.

Daniels, who was born Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen to void a nondisclosure agreement stemming from an alleged 2006 affair between her and the president.

A judge threw out the lawsuit this month, ruling that it was irrelevant because she had not been held to the terms of the agreement.

Daniels, 39, torched Cohen during her appearance in the nation’s capital, calling him “dumber than herpes.”

Cohen is facing a three-year prison sentence after pleading guilty last year to tax fraud, bank fraud, campaign finance law violations and lying to Congress over the timing of negotiations surrounding a Trump Tower development in Moscow.

“I’m thinking about visiting him in prison for shits and giggles,” Daniels said with a grin.

Daniels also delivered her side of the story in her split with her high-profile lawyer, Michael Avenatti, which was announced just hours before she spoke in the District.

In a pair of Twitter posts on Tuesday, Daniels and Avenatti announced they were parting ways. Avenatti said his firm informed Daniels last month “that we were terminating our legal representation of her for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to the attorney-client privilege.”

When asked by Mulkerrins how she felt about Avenatti “claiming he dumped you,” Daniels replied, “Yeah, how adorable is that? Michael knew that I was very dissatisfied with a few things.”

In a statement, Avenatti said he is “not at liberty to disclose why” he stopped working with Daniels, but “it was not a decision we arrived at quickly.”

“We notified Stormy in writing on February 19 that we had made the decision to terminate our representation of her and we explained why. She then proceeded to hire Mr. Brewster, who has yet to commit to take on all of her many legal matters despite our requests for weeks that he do so if he truly is going to be representing her,” Avenatti said.

“I have a new attorney, the details will be coming out very soon,” Daniels said of her lawyer, Clark Brewster.

“My new attorney said today, ‘Things are about to get real interesting,’” Daniels said, suggesting that she’ll be taking more legal action in the future.

“Sit down, ladies. It’s about to get real f—ing good,” Daniels teased.

Daniels also opened up before the packed audience at the women’s club and workspace about what to include in her 2018 memoir, “Full Disclosure,” when it came to describing Trump’s anatomy.

“I did actually really struggle with the descriptive details of his body,” Daniels said.

“I felt really guilty about including those things because they’re embarrassing and it’s like, you know, fat-shaming, and it’s not in my nature to do that.”

“But the only reason I was like, f— it, is because he would not extend the same courtesy to me or any of the other women he’s called a pig or grabbed by the p—-,” Daniels said to applause.

Daniels went on to insult Trump, saying, “To be quite honest I’ve slept with a lot of famous people, and if I was going to leak a story, it would be one of the hot ones. Not that one.”

“What happened wasn’t important — trust me, it was 90 seconds of unimportance,” Daniels quipped to the crowd.

Asked if she thinks her “honesty and bravery” would affect Trump’s chances of winning reelection, Daniels replied in the affirmative.

“It’s not my bravery, it’s his dishonesty that’s going to cost him.”
