Stormy Daniels tells Vogue that sex with Trump was ‘two minutes… I’m being generous’

Porn actress Stormy Daniels leaves Federal Court with her lawyer Michael Avenatti for Michael Cohen's court hearing in Manhattan

Stormy Daniels was profiled by Vogue. We’re through the looking glass and I don’t hate it. Vogue stands for everything elite and consumer-driven for American women. And Stormy is surprisingly on-brand – it’s not like Vogue decided to profile her because she is a “famous mistress of the president.” They’re profiling her because A) women love her and B) Stormy is at the heart of what will bring down Donald Trump. She’s an American hero and a patriot. This Vogue article is good because Michael Avenatti, Stormy’s lawyer, is quoted at length too, and because they have a very cute vibe between them. I would totally watch a reality show featuring them interacting and bringing down Donald Trump. You can read the full Vogue piece here – Stormy isn’t breaking any news, because there are so many moving parts to her case and everything is moving so quickly. But she’s funny and interesting. Some highlights:

Details about sex with Trump: “How many details can you really give about two minutes?” she says. Two minutes? I ask. “Maybe. I’m being generous.”

She can barely eat & she’s had to hire bodyguards: “We’ve been at restaurants when we order food and it’s taken too long or somebody was watching and we’ve had to leave—like that.” Daniels snaps her French-manicured fingers. She throws a look at Avenatti. “That’s why I’m so skinny! We’ve been in a couple car chases. We’ve had people put notes under the door, which means they know what hotel I’m in, which means we’ve had to change hotels in the middle of the night.”

Working in the sex industry: “It takes a strong person to work in the adult business. You’re a scientist. You get to study people . . . but there’s also the feeling of ‘Oh, I’m not going into the VIP room with that guy.’ ”

Her fan base now: “My fan base is completely different,” Daniels tells me later. The middle-aged white men who used to populate her shows and buy her movies—“now those guys are just gone.” In their place has sprung the so-called Resistance: women, gay couples, immigrants, and other assorted liberals who despise Trump. “It’s pretty much these packs of women, and they are angry,” Daniels says. There’s an upside to this—“Women tip the best!” Daniels says—but she’s still struggling to get her head around this nightly outpouring of warmth. “People come up and they’re so emotional and they put so much on me. They’re like, ‘You’re going to save the world, you’re a patriot, you’re a hero.’ It’s funny. It’s actually easier for me to handle the negative stuff. It’s not like I turned on Twitter today and was called a whore for the first time.”

She never had a political agenda: “I’m not like some big Hillary supporter. I’m a Republican.” There is the gun that she owns, the state she lives in—but she is quick to say she is socially liberal (“I’m pro choice, pro-gay”) and that she was disgusted watching the 2016 campaign, when Trump insulted Mexican immigrants, Muslims, women, and so many others. “I just thought most of it was this character. And then I slowly started realizing, Wait a minute. . . .”

Saving her own ass: “When I started this, I just wanted to save my own ass, not everybody else’s.”

Her story is not a #MeToo story: “No, nothing. Not once did I ever feel like I was in any sort of physical danger. I’m sure if I would’ve taken off running, he wouldn’t have given chase. And even if I had, there’s no way he could’ve caught me… He’s even less likely to catch me now.”

Stormy is a smart cookie, I’ve known that for a while. I guess I owe her an apology too – when she first entered the public discourse, I thought she was a sideshow. I honestly couldn’t believe that her story – about having sex with Trump more than a decade ago – would be the catalyst for all that’s happened with Michael Cohen and more. She really is an American hero, and it’s amazing to think that she really was just trying to save her reputation. A storm’s a’coming.

    No one needs to know the sordid details. Trump is hot corrosive garbage that no one wants to picture in the act.

    Also is Avenatti married? Asking for……some friends of mine

    • Christin says:

      He was in the midst of a divorce a few months ago.

    • boredblond says:

      He’s divorced..

    • Mariposa says:

      I think he’s recently divorced.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I actually gagged when I saw the headline. Too disgusting to even begin to contemplate.

    • Juls says:

      I agree with you, yuck! Pass the brain bleach! But, to be fair, the interviewer probably asked her about the sex. I mean, why wouldn’t they? And she didn’t really give any detail other than the 2 minute remark. Which will make his head explode with rage and distract him. We will soon get a rage-filled tweet-rant about how he is the bigliest, bestest lover of all time, which will be even more vomit-inducing than Stormy’s comments. I think it’s hilarious that she holds so much power over his psyche. Also, tell your “friend” to get in line for Avenatti. I was here first!

      • ellebee says:

        Scalding and bleaching my brain as I type. I guess she could have said worse.

        I…mean my friend has no qualms about pushing to the front of the Avenatti line.

    • Megan says:

      Buckle up, buttercup, nothing enrages Trump more than impugning his manhood.

    • Jay (the Canadian one) says:

      IMHO the TMI is worth it: publicly ridiculing Trump’s prowess is hitting him where it hurts, and I’m all for that. Looking forward to the 3am angrily tweeted rebuttal.

  2. Floydee Mercer says:

    Yes! What Kaiser said! And her choice of Avenatti was nothing short of serendipitous.

    • Mariko says:

      I have a theory on how she ended up with Avenatti. He worked for Rahm Emmanuel and I believe for Joe Biden’s campaign (I’m going off of memory on that one). He’s done a lot of work with Democrats, especially those in Obama’s cabinet. I believe the Michael Avenatti referral to Stormy was a gift from Obama, Joe, Rahm and maybe even Hillary.

      • Lala11_7 says:

        I despise Rahm Emmanuel…with every fiber of my being…and one of the BIG NEGATIVES I have regarding Obama, is him foisting that POS on our city after Rahm had outstayed his welcome in D.C. and had to get out of dodge with a quickness…there’s a REASON why you…REALLY haven’t seen Obama being anywhere around Rahm…in quite…sometime….

        I didn’t know about that Emmanuel connection….So…THAT’S why Avenatti intrinsically turns me off…my intuition NEVA fails me…

      • Mariposa says:

        If I remember correctly, the character of Ari in ‘entourage’ was based on Rahm’ s brother. Which tells me all I need to know about the Emmanuel family!

  3. Christin says:

    I have always found her more believable and relatable than Karen, the bunny who had a longer-term affair with Two Minutes Two Scoops.

    Sow the wind, reap the Stormy!

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I thinks its more a case of ‘Two Pumps Two Scoops’.

      • mrs.odie says:

        Isn’t two minutes ideal if you’re not into the guy? I mean, she basically made $65,000 a minute then. I think the worst possible scenario is sex with Trump that goes on and on. Shudder.

  4. Snazzy says:

    What I really like about her is that there’s no shame in her at all – “this is who I am, this is what I did, I’m not ashamed nor should I be”. It makes me adore her. And I LOVE that she’s the one that will bring this all down

  5. teehee says:

    Trumpster hits below the belt all teh time and in his position, and to people who are far more credible or honorable than he could be in his pinky if he put all his effort into it— so kudos to Stormy to say this. King Prawn has it ALL coming to him and more.

  6. Rapunzel says:

    Two minutes? Don’t buy it. I think it’s more like he’s President 45… seconds.

    • Christopher Davila says:

      So for two Minutes she is willing to put this country through hell when we have:
      -66 shooting victims in one weekend in Chicago Aug 6th
      -millions of heroine seized in LA, Boston & NJ 1st week of August 2018
      -over 50% of Americans cannot pay their bills
      -50% of children stranded at border were lined up to go live with pedophiles / sex offenders
      (thankfully Homeland Security uncovered that!)
      and the list goes on of things needing to be fixed in this country……


      • Caitrin says:

        It’s impressive that you’re worried about all of those things, on a gossip website covering a topical story, even as you virtue signal and issue dogwhistle tropes.

        There are a lot of problems in our country. HERE’S THE AMAZING THING: even in a world filled with stories competing for space, we can worry about and discuss multiple issues simultaneously. None of us exist in a vacuum, after all.

        Anyway, here’s Wonderwall, and I hope you have yourself a blessed day!

      • tealily says:

        This happened before Trump was president. He wasn’t in charge of any of those things at the time.

      • Save Mueller says:

        Lol wut?

      • Veronica S. says:

        He’s in charge of them now. If you don’t want to eat the blame for the problems in America, don’t run for president. Obama inherited the Middle Eastern wars and one of the worst economies since the Great Depression. That didn’t mean he wasn’t responsible for what good and bad choices he made regarding those issues even if he hadn’t started them.

      • tealily says:

        Right, but what does that have to do with Stormy Daniels f-ing Trump exactly?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        SHE’s putting the country through hell???

        Get out of here with your bs, troll. She’s not causing anything. For a party that loves to blather about personal responsibility, the GOP and trolls like you sure love to make excuses. Trump and his crimes are responsible for it all, fool.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        Enough said.

    Avenatti 2020

    • Betsy says:

      No way. No more political dilettantes – even if they’re smart.

    • Sue says:

      I have often wondered do people really want him to run? He seems very creepy to me just like another Trump. And to call her a hero? Just no. I think we really need to reserve that word for true hero’s. Stormy isn’t going to bring down Trump. I know that everyone is hoping for that. But the only thing that will bring him down is a change in the house to Democrats in November. But she has brought down the whole discourse in America. This whole article is just cringe worthy. This is what a true American hero looks like in America now I guess?? So the whole discourse changes to a new low level to get back at Trump? The end justifies the means?

      • Natalie S says:

        Why has she brought down the discourse? Wouldn’t it be the audience and source of income for her line of work (basically everyone in America especially men) who lower the tone?

  8. Rebecca says:

    She makes my skin crawl.

    • Juls says:

      Just curious as to why you feel that way. You are entitled to your opinion, of course. I just read the full Vogue piece and I find her to be intelligent, thoughtful, strong, and interesting. I have a LOT of respect for her after reading it.

      • Sue says:

        So I know that I am not the person who posted this but I feel the same way. The reason? First, I think that talking about what goes on privately in public is just very low class. So for example: how long someone takes is just information because shouldn’t be in the public sector. Kind of trailer trash. To call yourself, as someone who works in this industry a scientist? Really? Some of the scientists who change the world spend years and thousands of dollars in school to create things that save thousands of lives. And, why is she looking at him when she says she is skinny? Does he own her or something? I get that Trump is low but acting like him doesn’t make someone a hero it makes them just like him. I can see him doing this exact thing. He is low class and to bring him down we need true policy people to vote against him in congress not some low class cringe worthy article about his bedroom life and how long he takes. She sells her body and I get that but to brag about it and compare yourself with scientists??

      • Who ARE these people? says:

        She did not say she is a scientist so much as she said she looks at people scientifically, which is to say she is attentive and closely observant. It’s a figure of speech.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        A sales associate or waiter could have made the same exact comment about how their job feels like being a scientist and getting to study people- likely without it being seen as scandalous or offensive.
        As for keeping it classy- honestly, people who don’t want to hear or read about s*x do have options.

  9. Nichole says:

    Can’t wait for his Twitter clap back.

  10. Veronica S. says:

    Gross, but it’s exactly the kind of insult that gets to men like him. Nice to see her owning her motivations, though, and discussing what it means to have your story get bigger than you intended it to be.

  11. Nancy says:

    There is not enough money in print. Don’t know how these women do it. Two minutes in hell, for money. Look at him…….👿☠. Get out of the rain Stormy…

  12. Betsy says:

    She looks so unwell in these pictures. I wish only the best for her as she is under so much risk now and she’s done so much for her country.

  13. I like her. She is so direct and brave. The exact opposite of drump.

    I hope things turn out very well for her.

  14. KBeth says:

    I usually view this sort of TMI w/ disdain but I
    despise the orange pig so much that I support anything that brings him embarrassment.

  15. InquisitiveNewt says:

    Trump MUST be brought down, that is beyond essential; but who would fill the vacuum? God only knows what they have on Pence… As for the Democrats, when are they going to field someone remotely useful? Elizabeth Warren, Kamela Harris…? If only Michele Obama would stand…

  16. Prikalop says:

    Just to put things fairly: The fact that she is an adult movie professional is not a reason to bash her. That’s her choice. But the fact that she sought the orange man looking basically for a pay-off (in exchange for continued discretion) has a name: blackmail. Even if it was against Trump and eventually may have helped America to get rid of the wanna-be dictator, it shouldn’t be taken lightly that she still blackmailed him, took the money and then came back for more when she realized she got too little for it.

    • Betsy says:

      That’s not what happened here.

      • Nic919 says:

        If Dump is too dumb to keep his dick in his pants while he’s married and then wants to run for president while shoving Bill’s affairs in front of Hillary as part of the campaigning, then he deserves all the blackmail in the world. Part of why we are here is that dump and his family were looking for dirt on Hillary and the media played into his hands. I really don’t care why Stormy is doing this as long as it makes his life hell. There are families destroyed because of this jackass so he deserves even worse.

    • Amy Too says:

      That’s not at all what happened. He didn’t want this story coming out while he was running for President, so he sought her out through Cohen, and paid her hush money. She didn’t blackmail him. The people standing up for trump and writing anti-stormy comments seem to all have at least one thing in common: they’re willfully under informed and refuse to back down from their lies or accept facts.

  17. Valerie says:

    My mom’s friend, and I’ll use that term loosely because she’s a 45 supporter, maintains that it’s an image. Even if it was, why would anyone choose to support that? She really surprised me with her stupidity. We’re not even American.

    • Sue says:

      So I think that people often forget why people support Trump. I don’t think it’s really him they are supporting I think it’s the policies they want to get done. For example the Republicans want the Supreme Court so they’re willing to put up with Trump to get it. In all honesty I don’t think Trump believes in a lot of what he says about abortion and other things. I think that this is actually Mike Pence’s government and Trump is the talking head. So the Republicans and others in the country are willing to put up with him to get what they want in the end. Just my two cents. So does he cheat on his wife sure but who cares when he nominates who they want to the Supreme Court. And is he sometimes crazy sure but he is getting the work they want done so Stormy Daniels doesn’t make a dent in anything then.

      • Valerie says:

        Fine, but what about the attitude with which he gets these things done? Whether I support it or not makes no difference since there will always be racists and fascists, and other -ists. But even some of his initial supporters have been turned off by his brash, bullying ways. Having known this woman for as long as I have, I just can’t believe she would support him in any way, if for no other reason than the fact that he’s rude. His conduct is completely unbecoming of someone in his position. No amount of political status is worth the damage he’s doing to the country.

      • Veronica S. says:

        He gives them permission to voice their ugliness and think it acceptable, that’s why. He’s a demagogue that gives them something to hate – immigrants, liberals, outspoken women, ethnic groups, non-whites, etc. – to distract them from the reality that they have no power to change the issues of the world around them, something to project their fear of obsolescence in the face of a widening income gap and ever-changing technology.

        Trump isn’t tough on shit. He’s just good at playing at it because American culture has indoctrinated us with the idea that loud, angry white men have something meaningful to say. He hasn’t pushed through any meaningful legislation beyond that which will harm the country further down the road. Nearly all of his economic policies are absolute garbage to anybody with a basic understanding of trade and global economics. Nothing he’s saying is even new – open any history book, and you’ll see a lengthy American history of blaming ______ group of people for the problems of the working classes. The problem has never been immigrants, has never been ethnic minorities, has never been women, has never been whatever other dog whistle he’s blowing. It’s the wealthy and powerful who are invested in turning whites against blacks, men against women, natives against immigrants, because it serves the agenda of keeping them content to blame each other instead of putting the responsibility on who is actually to blame for it. And it has worked and will continue to work because these same people have gone to enormous lengths to indebt, impoverish, and undereducate the general public so they’re too broke, too stupid, and too warn out to care.

        I mean, really, these people own every branch of government – and they’re STILL ANGRY. Because that’s really all they’ve got going for them. Because if they sat down for five minutes and tried to articulate exactly why this man appeals to them, I guarantee you they wouldn’t be able to explain it logically themselves. There is nothing constructive about Trump’s platform and there never will be.

      • Gretchen says:

        @Veronica S- NAILED IT

  18. tealily says:

    I just now realized that I no longer know what it means to be a Republican but be “socially liberal.” That used to mean something more economic, but political affiliation is almost purely based on social issues at this point, isn’t it? I truly have no idea how anyone who isn’t an utter bigot could identify themselves as Republican in this day and age.

    • otaku fairy... says:

      Me neither. She’s probably voted republican in the past but didn’t this time when Trump ran.

  19. G. Mitchell says:

    Just the thought of Trump pumping for 2 minutes makes me want to vomit. I can’t imagine how she distracted herself during this event.

  20. Ms says:

    Did anyone think Trump cares about someone else’s sexual gratification? Of course he is a Minute Man. He can’t pull his head out of his ass ling enough to be anything better than a Two Pump Chump.

    @Veronica S. says: August 28, 2018 at 4:19 pm : Yes to everything you said.
    Especially to “…And it has worked and will continue to work because these same people have gone to enormous lengths to indebt, impoverish, and undereducate the general public so they’re too broke, too stupid, and too warn out to care.”

    And its happening worldwide, not just in the States. Although Europe has not been manipulaated on the same blunt and effective level. Yet.

    Europe has to put the big girl’s pants on and take responsibility; act from a point of equal standing to the US and other players in geopolitical terms. Europe liked to hide behind and act in deferrence to the US. To me, a European, from a country with universal health care (Super YAY!), free education (The Best!), strict separation of state and church (YAY,YAY,YAY!) “The American way of life” is pretty unattractive. Ugly and scary even, to be honest. This I say without malice and with no intention of denying or denigrating great American accomplishments and additions to the worlds advancement on multiple levels and topics.
    In regards to debt/creating seductive options to accumulate and nurture a longing for unneccessary stuff that does not enhance knowledge/wisdom/ emotional or personal growth: Most of my fellow Germans don’t own a credit card. Those that do own one, rarely use it. Germans prefer to pay cash. ( Statistics provided by the Federal bank of Germany in their 2017 statistics of German payment behaviour: Share of Paymentinstruments per transactions in percentage: 2008 Credit card: 1.4% and in 2017 Credit card: 1.5 %. Only one point five percent! of all payment transactions done via credit card.
    Our police dont casully shoot teenagers, no matter what the teenager is wearing. Some dont even wear guns.
    US Students at my Uni always answer: “Feeling so safe.” when I ask them what most surprised and/ or impressed them so far while living abroad in Berlin. That is always in the top 3-to 5 answers, next to “the sense of freedom of and for the “individual being” and also “the way you party”, lol.

    She did say in the interview that people put that on her and it makes her uncomfortable. She’s not here to take down trump. But it does crack me up that mr nasty is having to deal with the porn star he paid off. If only he had kept it in his pants, lololol.
