Not only did Stormy Daniels confirm her Trump affair to Slate back in 2016, but five years earlier she actually gave an interview with In Touch Weekly where she told them that she had sex with Trump only four months after Melania gave birth, and gave even more details about it:
In the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands today, Stormy (given name: Stephanie Clifford) confirms in her own words that she had sex with Donald Trump in his Lake Tahoe, NV, hotel suite in 2006 — a story that was corroborated to In Touch in 2011 by her good friend Randy Spears and supported by her ex-husband Mike Moz. Stormy also took and passed a polygraph test at the time of the interview.
Stormy told In Touch, “[The sex] was textbook generic,” while discussing the fling they had less than four months after Donald’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. “I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don’t try to pay me.’”
It all started at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006. “[Trump] was introduced to everybody. He kept looking at me and then we ended up riding to another hole on the same golf cart together,” Stormy recalled, adding that the business mogul later came to the gift lounge her adult-film company, Wicked Pictures, sponsored and asked for her number, which she gave him, before they posed for a photo together.
“Then he asked me if I wanted to have dinner that night. And I was like, ‘Yeah, of course!’” she told In Touch. Stormy, dressed up to go out on the town, arrived at Trump’s hotel room, where she says she was greeted by a bodyguard named Keith, who let her inside. Stormy claims Trump was sprawled on the couch watching TV, wearing pajama pants. “We ended up having dinner in the room,” she revealed to In Touch.
At one point, Stormy told In Touch, she excused herself to go to the bathroom. “When I came out, he was sitting on the bed and he was like, ‘Come here.’ And I was like, ‘Ugh, here we go.’ And we started kissing.” After having sex, Stormy said, “We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, ‘I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.’”
Unless there’s some big conspiracy here, I think it’s pretty evident that it happened and Trump and Clifford are lying about it. (Clifford probably has to if she wants to keep those payments coming and avoid lawsuits.)
What makes me sad about this is now all the questions Melania will face publicly about this from the press. Even though she and Trump may have worked through it already, now she’s going to get questions about it whenever she’s on the move or in front of the media.
But even if she doesn’t, the press will undoubtedly ask Trump about it over and over and she’ll have to watch that unfold and perhaps relive it all again. And so will poor little Barron, perhaps for the first time. I’m sure he probably doesn’t even know.
