Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel announced last night that he will interview porn star and self-professed mistress of Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels, immediately after the President’s State of the Union speech this coming Tuesday night, January 30.

The Stormy Daniels story exploded into the public consciousness at the beginning of this year with allegations that, not only had she engaged in an adulterous sexual affair with the Presidon’t four months after his wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron, but that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen had set up a shell company, Essential Consultants, to pay $130,000 for Ms. Daniels’ silence — apparently as a campaign expense.
A watchdog group called Common Cause has filed a lawsuit accusing the Trump campaign of violating Federal Election Commission (FEC) laws by paying Ms. Daniels with election funds in order to whitewash his image.
When Trump delivers the State of the Union address to set out his white nationalist, pro-1% agenda on Tuesday, he will face an array of protesters, from Dreamers protesting his xenophobic immigration policies to sexual assault accusers wearing black to protest his self-confessed predatory history.
Furthermore, many members of the Congressional Black Caucus plan to boycott the speech entirely — in light of Trump’s racist “shithole countries” comments and calling white supremacists “very fine people.”
At the same time, new evidence of the Criminal-in-Chief’s obstruction of the Russia investigation — by trying to fire Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller — threatens to take Trump down.
Making matters even worse for the Presidon’t, the international community booed him today for attacking the free press.
By interviewing Stormy Daniels, Kimmel will highlight the illegitimacy of this disgraceful excuse for a leader.
