Stormy Daniels is staying strong in her fight against President Trump.
The 39-year-old and her attorney Michael Avenatti gave an exclusive interview for the October issue of Vogue magazine to discuss her ongoing battle against the Trump administration.
The interview was given days before the president’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, admitted to federal prosecutors of paying Daniels $130,000 at Trump’s request in exchange for her silence on their alleged 2006 affair.
In the article Daniels is described as “blunt, foul-mouthed and funny.” When pressed for details of their alleged encounter, Daniels quipped, “How many details can you really give about two minutes?”
Daniels says her life since she first appeared on “60 Minutes” and gave an interview about her sexual relationship has been filled with death threats from angry Trump supporters. Although she is currently on a strip-club tour, Daniels says most of her time has been spent dodging paparazzi and often needing to change hotel rooms in the middle of the night once her location has been leaked to the press.
Accompanying the interview is a glamorous photoshoot by famed fashion photographer, Annie Liebovitz. Daniels poses stoically in a $3,990 USD presidential blue dress by Zac Posen with her long blonde hair flowing in waves over her shoulder.
While Daniels has emerged as a key player in the investigation into Donald Trump, the image of Daniels as a Resistance hero is one that makes her uncomfortable.
“When I started this, I just wanted to save my own ass,” she admitted. “Not everybody else’s.”
The public battle with Trump and his camp has put a strain on Daniels’s relationship with her seven-year-old daughter, who was removed from school after a photographer tried to take her picture. Daniels hired a tutor for her daughter, whom she FaceTime’s regularly, but admits that she doesn’t get to see each other often.
“If I contact her, it makes her sad, so I just kind of have to wait until she wants to talk to me,” she told Vogue. “She knows that people date and do this and that, and she knows that Trump is somebody I hung out with or knew three years before I even met her dad, so that’s all fine. The problem is they keep using the words porn star, and she doesn’t know what a porn star is, because she doesn’t know what sex is, and I’m not quite ready to have that conversation.”
