Threats, sex, hush money - The "yuck" factor is high on Stormy Daniels 60 minutes
Adult film star Stormy Daniels says she was threatened to keep silent about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump in 2006, telling her story in a highly anticipated interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" broadcast Sunday. Daniels said she was threatened by an unidentified man in Las Vegas to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump, an incident that she said happened while she was with her young daughter. She said in the interview that she had one encounter of consensual sex with the future president. Most of the interview revolved around information that has leaked out over some months; the threats that Stormy Daniels talked about are new. That alongwith Trump comparing many of his accusers to "beautiful" Ivanka Trump are Sunday night's headlines in the US. Top quotes from political pundits: "The yuck factor is high", "A porn star and the President...for God's sake!", and "What are we going to tell our kids?". Will it hurt the Trump Presidency? No. For that, it's still Robert Mueller's investigation.
"I think there's more to come on this story," says Anderson Cooper discussing his Stormy Daniels interview. "If somebody is using intimidation tactics, physical intimidation tactics, it's probably not the first time they've done it." https://t.co/eNmekpVPe4— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) March 26, 2018
