President Trump disgusted the nation this morning when he took to Twitter and disparaged his former mistress Stormy Daniels as a “horseface” as he took a victory lap over a judge’s surprising decision to throw out the porn star’s defamation lawsuit against him.
“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!

His words sparked anger from across the nation as the president, who had just recently publicly mocked a woman sexual assault survivor’s testimony in front of a crowd of hooting and baying fans, wallows deeper into the mud with shameful attacks aimed at a woman’s appearance.

Even a Republican dared to publicly criticize the President over his words, which is an event rarer than a blue moon. Representative Ryan Costello (R-PA) took to Twitter and slammed the President for his insults and the lessons it teaches to America’s children, who cannot help but watch the entire debacle with the rest of us.
To say this is unbecoming of any man, let alone the POTUS, is a vast understatement. And to say this enables teenage boys to feel they have a license to refer to girls w such names is obvious. It’s all very embarrassing. https://t.co/dC5xxmFoGo

America’s political establishment has been very preoccupied with “civility” and weeping and moaning over the way that Trump’s ascension into the political sphere has done away with the old norms and protocols, whether it’s about his endless petty partisan feuds against his detractors or the way that protestors have begun disrupting the lives of their Republican oppressors by challenging them while they’re out at restaurants.
There’s a lot of discussions to be had on both sides of that argument, but I think we can all agree that the President of the United States should not be slamming his ex-mistress as a “horseface” on Twitter.
