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.

Daniels shot back.

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.

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.
