Trump’s Stormy Daniels Insult Triggers Outrage: It’s ‘Mushroom D*ck vs. Horseface’
Reactions to President Donald Trump‘s deeply personal attack on Stormy Daniels are coming in fast and furious.
On Monday, a defamation claim against Trump brought by Daniels was dismissed by a Federal judge. How did the President respond? Tuesday morning, he called Daniels “horseface” and gloated about the possibility that she’ll have to compensate him for his legal fees.
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!

This is hardly the first time Trump has attacked a woman by taking shots at her looks. But as you can see, political observers are apoplectic over this latest occurrence:

Just your normal day when the President of the United States calls the porn star with whom he had unprotected sex and then constructed an elaborate scheme to cover it up, calls that porn star “Horseface” https://t.co/4K7uYAN6fm

“In today’s global society, social media is an inevitable part of our children’s daily lives,” Mrs Trump said. “It can be used in many positive ways, but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly.” https://t.co/pgW9cTGWfv

And here’s the response from Michael Avenatti:
.@realDonaldTrump – tens of millions of Americans are tired of your fraud, lies, and corruption. They are equally tired of your attacks on women, especially the ones who you have had sex with while cheating on your wives. We (and the UN) are laughing AT YOU, not with you. #Basta
