Adult film star Stormy Daniels has become the talk of social media. Daniels first made headlines for her alleged affair with President Trump.
Daniels' Talk Show Appearance
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is expected to make her first talk show appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The adult film star is scheduled to sit down with the 2018 Oscars host for an exclusive conversation.
The exclusive interview will be on Tuesday, Jan. 30, which is expected to air after President Trump delivers the State of the Union.
Did She Have An Affair?
Days before Daniels agreed to sit down with Kimmel, she broke her silence with investigative news magazine Inside Edition. The show sat down with Daniels on Jan. 25 and asked the adult film star if she had an affair with President Trump. Daniels only smirked in response to the direct question.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Daniels supposedly met the former The Apprentice host in 2006 when the future U.S. President was vacationing at Lake Tahoe. During the time they had their alleged affair, the future First Lady and President Trump's third wife, Melania, recently gave birth to the couple's first and only child, Barron.
Years after the alleged affair, The Wall Street Journal revealed that Daniels was paid $130,000 in hush money in Oct. 2016. Daniels received the money from future President Trump through a Trump Organization representative, lawyer Michael Cohen. Cohen gave Daniels the cash after she agreed not to publicly go forward with her alleged sexual affair with the Republican Presidential Candidate during the last months of the 2016 Presidential Election.
If Daniels did not accept the hush money, she would have broken her story to ABC morning news program: Good Morning America.
Kimmel's Grudge Against President Trump
When Daniels sits down with the ABC late night host on Tuesday, audiences might see Kimmel give some of his best anti-President Trump commentary.
Kimmel has been an outspoken critic of President Trump's policies and even raised his voice in the children's health care fight, when his youngest son, Billy, had to have two open heart surgeries. He also raised concerns to Congress when they were debating to fund the Children's Health Insurance Program. On the Dec. 11, 2017 show, Kimmel tearfully pleaded to his viewers to call Congress and to fund CHIP.
"Once again I am asking you. Billy is asking you....to make phone calls. Jam the house and senate phones and tell them to take a break from tax cuts for a minute and fully fund CHIP immediately," said Kimmel.
Kimmel's exclusive interview with Daniels is scheduled to compete against his CBS late time rival, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who has confirmed that he will air a live episode of his show after President Trump speaks. Recently, Colbert commented that President Trump and Daniels' alleged affair reminded him of The Shape of Water's romance.
