Adult film star Stormy Daniels fired back at President Donald Trump after he called her “Horseface” on Twitter Tuesday morning. “Game on, Tiny,” she said in a tweet accusing him of incompetence, hating women and possibly even favoring bestiality.

Daniels was responding to Trump’s tweet celebrating the fact that her lawsuit alleging defamation — he had previously tweeted that her story about a man threatening her to keep her quiet was a “con job” — had been thrown out and that she had also been ordered to pay the president’s legal fees.

The tweet that started it all:

The president’s tweet also triggered a response from Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney and a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

Within hours of the ruling, Avenatti filed a notice of appeal in the defamation case. Their other lawsuit against Trump regarding the $130,000 payment allegedly made by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to keep Daniels quiet proceeds unaffected.
