Yesterday, a federal judge dismissed a pending lawsuit leveled against Donald Trump by his alleged former mistress, adult film star Stormy Daniels. Daniels had accused him of defamation after he tweeted out a statement calling her story that a man threatened to her into silence in a parking lot on Trump’s behalf a “total con job.”
It was a disappointing development, but the judge ruled that Trump was exercising his First Amendment right to free speech and that he was simply using “rhetorical hyperbole.” He also said that Daniels must pay the legal fees that Trump incurred fighting her lawsuit. She still has another lawsuit pending against Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen.
Trump, never a graceful winner, took to Twitter today to pen a disgusting message. He reiterated the information about the judge’s ruling, and then referred to Stormy Daniels as “horseface” and her attorney Michael Avenatti as a “3rd rate lawyer.”

The latter insult is an unfair assessment of Mr. Avenatti’s talents, but the former is inexcusable and horrifyingly misogynist. Trump has never shied away from attacking women for their looks, because he sees them as nothing more than sexual objects, but this is a new low even for him.
It’s also clear that Trump doesn’t actually think Daniels is unattractive since it appears that he pursued her for an extramarital affair. This is just another example of him demeaning a woman for his own perverse satisfaction.
Additionally, Trump promised to “go after” Daniels and Avenatti in Texas, where he will be campaigning for Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) Senate re-election bid. Presumably, this means Trump will be peppering his speech with degrading comments about the two of them and judging from his past pattern of behavior, he will probably use the term “horseface” more than once.
This vile man has now dragged the once prestigious Office of the President of the United States further into the gutter than anyone ever imagined possible. He may have won this minor battle against Stormy Daniels, but history will vindicate her as a strong woman and commend her for standing up to a would-be tyrant. Americans have now been given just one more compelling reason to vote against Trump and the toxic party keeping him in power.
“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!
