President Trump blasted adult film star Stormy Daniels on Twitter Tuesday after a Judge ruled her lawsuit against him will be thrown out, and that she must pay his legal fees.
Trump describer Daniels as “Horseface,” also taking a shot at her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
“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!”
According to CNBC:
“President Donald Trump lashed out at porn star Stormy Daniels in a tweet Tuesday, calling her “Horseface” and lambasting her “3rd rate lawyer” Michael Avenatti after a federal judge dismissed their defamation case against him a day earlier.
Daniels sued Trump in April, after Trump sent a tweet accusing the adult film actress and director of a “total con job” following her appearance on daytime talk show “The View.”
After Trump’s April tweet, Daniels sued, arguing that Trump had posted a false statement against her that was defamatory because it suggested she was falsely accusing a man of committing a crime.
California-based U.S. District Court Judge S. James Otero, however, said in his ruling Monday that “Mr. Trump’s tweet displays an incredulous tone, suggesting that the content of his tweet was not meant to be understood as a literal statement.”
Otero ruled that Trump deserved to receive attorney’s fees from the case — an outcome his lawyer Charles Harder called a “total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels.”
