Trump Bought Porn Star’s Silence : The Story Goes On, Now Seriously

It finally came out in a serious respected news outlet. After breaking in 2011 on a website called The Dirty, then in The Smoking Gun in October 2016, the story of an affair between Donald Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels found its way through the Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper reported yesterday that in October 2016, a month before the presidential election, Trump’s lawyers team bought Wicked Pictures longest contract girl’s silence for $130 000. That same month, Jessica Drake, Wicked Picture’s other long-time contract girl, told the press that she had been victimized by Trump’s sexual misbehavior at the same event when Trump and Daniels met.

The trio – and another woman, according to Drake’s account – met in the summer 2006 at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, on the border between California and Nevada. I reported on the event on October 25th 2016, in an article called “Porn and Politics : When Two Worlds (and Two Words) Collide“.

At this golf event, Wicked Pictures, an adult entertainment company which targets upper class men, was present by sending their two “poster” girls, Jessica Drake and Stormy Daniels. Former porn actress Alana Evans, who I know because of her involvement in defending porn stars’ rights, also recounts being there.

“Stormy said she met Donald Trump and then tells me about the golf tournament and how she’s supposed to hang out with him later that night, and she invited me. Stormy said Donald knew exactly who she was and wanted to meet her”, she said to other former adult star Aurora Snow, now writer for The Daily Beast.

“Stormy calls me four or five times, by the last two phone calls she’s with Donald [Trump] and I can hear him, and he’s talking through the phone to me saying, ‘Oh come on Alana, let’s have some fun! Let’s have some fun! Come to the party, we’re waiting for you.”

Neither Stormy Daniels nor Donald Trump confirmed the accounts, of course. But other sources say that after the 2006 event, they met several times, at other events or in hotels. Among them, Stormy Daniels’ former husband Michael Mosny. They divorced since then.

It’s also interesting to note that the 38 year-old porn star and director, born Stephanie Gregory Clifford in Louisiana, attempted to run for a Senate election in her home state under the Republican banner, in early 2010. She later gave up the challenge saying she couldn’t afford it and wasn’t taken seriously.

It is also important to remember that Trump’s family fortune was built partly on prostitution revenues, since his grand-father Friedrich Trump was running restaurants-brothels in Canada’s “Wild West”, during its own gold rush. Paying women for sex, or considering them as sexual objects, might be more or less consciously normal in this family. Afterwards, Trump’s father maintained the heritage by making money in real estate based on KKK’s principles; some reports have surfaced about him being present at a KKK’s street protest in New York, and on his company’s policy to not rent housing to Black folks. Some people’s entitlement to racism and sexism can be rooted in very concrete family activities.

On Stormy Daniels’ side, who got her name from the whisky brand, her Wikipedia page states that “Daniels’ parents divorced when she was four. She was subsequently raised by her mother. Daniels has said of her childhood that she “came from an average, lower-income household… there [were] days without electricity”. Not the same social environment.
