President Donald Trump made fun of Stormy Daniels on Tuesday, blasting the adult movie entertainer and her lawyer Michael Avenatti one day after a federal judge tossed their defamation lawsuit against him.
Moments later, Stormy Daniels fired back at President Trump on Twitter. “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

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was responding to Trump’s tweet celebrating the fact that the judge dismissed her defamation lawsuit against him, 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 president’s tweet also triggered a response from Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney.
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, Daniels’ attorney, appealed U.S. District Judge James Otero’s decision to dismiss their defamation lawsuit within hours Monday.
Otero had agreed with Trump’s legal team that the president had the First Amendment right to tweet on April 18 that a forensic sketch of a man who Daniels alleges threatened her over her claims she had an extramarital affair with Trump more than a decade ago was a “total con job.”
However, Daniels’ other lawsuit against Trump regarding the $130,000 payment allegedly made by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen to keep her quit proceeds unaffected.
