Adult film star Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, took another hit last week in her string of lawsuits against President Donald Trump, when her libel suit against the president was rejected by a federal appeals court.
Daniels filed a libel suit against Trump over a tweet he posted back in 2018 concerning a sketch Daniels helped to create of her alleged intimidator alongside a photo of her ex-husband.
Trump captioned the side-by-side photos posted by another Twitter user: “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”
Daniels argued that Trump smeared her as a liar, hurting her reputation, and denied their alleged 2006 affair via the tweet.
However, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California ruled in favor of Trump, whose legal representation said the tweet “amounted to an opinion about another user’s post and not a factual claim,” The Hill reported.
