Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump, filed a defamation lawsuit against the president. Daniels says she was threatened with violence to keep quiet about the affair and was recently arrested in an Ohio strip club in what some believe was a setup. Daniels is suing the president for making false, disparaging accusations against her on Twitter. But critics say her profession undermines her credibility, and argue she's just in this for money and notoriety. Who do you trust more?

Stormy Daniels was recently arrested by three undercover cops for allowing a patron to touch her in a strip club. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, said the whole thing was a setup.

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels was arrested early Thursday at an Ohio strip club for allegedly touching three undercover detectives during her performance in violation of state law.
"This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation," [her attorney Michael Avenatti] said. "We will fight all bogus charges."

Daniels has become the unlikely heroine of liberals, gaining fans for her straightforward and witty takes and her take-no-prisoners lawyer.

But Daniels' detractors say her career as a porn star automatically makes her suspect.

Others say slut-shaming a woman for an entirely legitimate and legal profession is not going to work this time. We're in a different era. Sex workers have rights and deserve respect.

Ms. Clifford has used unshamability and quick-draw ripostes as a force field. When a critic on Twitter told her that “dumb whores go to hell,” she shot back, “Glad I’m a smart one.”

When it comes to her defamation lawsuit, however, Trump allies argue she doesn't have a leg to stand on.
