Porn star Stormy Daniels — whose 2020 presidential hopeful lawyer Michael Avenatti is also representing a woman who claimed without evidence that Brett Kavanaugh was a gang rapist — has apparently realized that the passage in her new memoir "Full Disclosure" describing Donald Trump's "manhood" has backfired big time on her. She now feels "pretty terrible" about "body shaming" the president.
In an interview with Australian current affairs show "60 Minutes" Sunday, Daniels said that her "mushroom" Mario Kart reference about Trump's member was written when she was "very angry" and suggested that she now wishes she could take it back.
"So I was very angry in writing that," she told host Liz Hayes, News.com reports. "And now that the book is out and people are reading about it, and it’s all over the internet I actually feel pretty terrible about it … in a way it’s body shaming."
Asked if her motive was to "humiliate" Trump, Daniels insisted that it wasn't.
"No. Absolutely not, which is why I feel a little conflicted about the book. I did not want to hurt him. My intention was for people to stop hurting me," she said.
She went on to claim that she doesn't know why she ever agreed to have sex with Trump, describing it as either being in "the right place at the right time" or "the wrong place at the wrong time."
As she and Avenatti have consistently done, Daniels also made sure to paint herself as the victim of the situation and someone who is courageously standing up to a bullying president, who she slammed as an "egotistical lunatic."
The Left has begun to turn on Daniels' lawyer Avenatti for his role in promoting the uncorroborated and salacious accusations of Julie Swetnick against Kavanaugh, which many believe ultimately undermined the Democrats' smear campaign against the Supreme Court nominee. Kavanaugh was confirmed by a vote of 50-48 on Saturday.
