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.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his…umm…shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny. https://t.co/6DpDD5ELtj

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.
“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!

The tweet that started it all:
A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)! https://t.co/9Is7mHBFda

The president’s tweet also triggered a response from Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney and a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
You are a disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States. Bring everything you have, because we are going to demonstrate to the world what a complete shyster and liar you are. How many other women did you cheat on your wife with while you had a baby at home? https://t.co/npOKOEFju6

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.
