The President of the United States referred to his alleged former mistress as “Horseface” in a Tuesday morning tweet.
President Donald Trump celebrated the dismissal of Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against him on Twitter, calling her a “total con”.
> “'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!' he tweeted.
> The tweet comes one day after a judge in New York threw out Daniels's defamation lawsuit against Trump and ordered Daniels to repay the president's legal fees.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, tweeted back at the president, calling Trump a “disgusting misogynist” and a “liar”:
> "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?" he tweeted.
Daniels has filed a separate lawsuit, which is unaffected by the judge’s ruling, regarding the 2016 nondisclosure agreement she signed.
> Daniels alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and that the former business mogul paid her $130,000 during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence.
