WASHINGTON— President Donald Trump on Tuesday took to Twitter to lash out at former porn star Stormy Daniels, who had sued the president for defamation of character, only to have her suit dismissed by a federal judge based on “lack of merit”.
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Daniel’s lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees @FoxNews,” the president tweeted. “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!”
Daniels brought the suit in federal court after Trump pointed out that a sketch she released of a man who allegedly threatened her to stay silent about her reported one-time fling with Trump looked a lot like her ex-husband.
In addition to dismissing her suit against the president, the judge hearing the case also ordered Daniels to pay Trump’s attorneys fees.
