WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to take a stab at porn star Stormy Daniels by referring to her as "Horseface" after a lawsuit against him was thrown out.
"Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas," the president tweeted in part.
“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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2018
Trump's tweet came after news broke late Monday that a Federal judge had dismissed Daniels' defamation lawsuit against the president.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and sued him in April. She filed the defamation lawsuit after Trump tweeted about a composite sketch of a man Daniels says threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about an alleged affair. He called it a "total con job."
It didn't take long before Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, took a stab back at the president in his own tweet, in which he called him a liar and accused him of cheating on first lady Melania Trump while their son, Barron, was still a baby.
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? https://t.co/npOKOEFju6— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) October 16, 2018
