Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s guests are usually Hollywood actors looking to hype their latest project — but on Tuesday, he’ll be interviewing a porn star. Who says she had an affair with the president. So, not your typical fare.
Stormy Daniels, the woman whose claims about having a relationship with Donald Trump have surfaced in recent weeks, will be on Kimmel’s show, appropriately, on the night her alleged former paramour gives his first State of the Union address to Congress. Kimmel promoted the “get” in a tweet.
Even in all caps, “MANY QUESTIONS” might be an understatement.
It’s unclear how much tea Daniels will be willing to spill, though: The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s attorney paid her $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 election. The White House has called the claims “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” and his lawyer says the reports of a payment are “completely false.”
But in addition to analyzing the finer points of Trump’s speech that night, there’s much to cover, if she’s willing — look for Kimmel (who’s no Trump fan himself) to bring up some of the weirder parts of Daniels’s alleged dealings with the now-president, including his purported fondness for being spanked with a magazine bearing his own image on the cover, and his reported phobia of sharks.
