Seemingly jubilant over a federal judge’s decision to toss Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against him, President Donald Trump devised a new moniker for her.
“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!

Daniels shot back.
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

U.S. District Judge S. James Oterohas dismissed Daniels’ lawsuit Monday on the grounds that Trump’s comments are “rhetorical hyperbole” protected under the First Amendment.
Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has reportedly appealed the decision, in addition to letting his response fly on Twitter.
.@realDonaldTrump – tens of millions of Americans are tired of your fraud, lies, and corruption. They are equally tired of your attacks on women, especially the ones who you have had sex with while cheating on your wives. We (and the UN) are laughing AT YOU, not with you. #Basta

Trump a rich history of likening women he dislikes to animals, including calling actress Rosie O’Donnell a “disgusting pig” and former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman a dog.
