Trump trial live updates: Stormy Daniels reacts to suggestion she was faking Trump sex story

In Susan Necheles’ first sustained effort to challenge Stormy Daniels’ account of the alleged sexual relationship, which her client has steadfastly denied for years, the defense attorney turned to the details of what s happened when Daniels said she came out of the bathroom in Trump’s suite. and I saw Trump in his underwear.

Necheles attempted to cast doubt on Daniels’ account of feeling lightheaded – pointing to her experience working with naked men in the adult film industry.

“But do you think seeing a man on a bed in a T-shirt and boxers was so upsetting that you became dizzy, the blood left your hands and feet and you almost passed out?” » asked Necheles.

Daniels responded by pointing out Trump’s age, telling jurors she didn’t expect to find Trump undressed and pointing out the power imbalance in the room.

Defense attorney Susan Necheles asked Daniels if she and Trump had dinner while staying in his suite.

According to Necheles, Daniels told InTouch magazine in 2011 and Anderson Cooper in 2018 that she “had dinner” with Trump.

During Daniels’ testimony Tuesday, Daniels said she never ate any food during the interaction with Trump.

“I maintain I didn’t see any food,” Daniels said today. “My story is the same…it was dinner, but we never got any food.”

Daniels alleged that Necheles cherry-picked his past statements to falsely suggest his testimony was inconsistent.

“You show me a sentence of an entire conservation,” Daniels told Necheles.

“Your words don’t mean what you say, do they?” » said Necheles.

Daniels’ posture during this exchange belied his confrontational tone with Necheles. She leaned back in her seat, leaning lightly on her right elbow in a relaxed manner. His body was oriented toward the jury even as his face and eyes were turned toward Necheles, periodically using hand gestures to emphasize a point.

Trump, meanwhile, sat in his chair, listening to much of Daniels’ testimony with his eyes closed.

Defense attorney Susan Necheles focused on the alleged sexual relationship between Trump and Stormy Daniels in 2006.

Necheles recounted details of the golf tournament where Daniels said she and Trump met in Lake Tahoe, Calif., asking Daniels to confirm every part of the story.

Necheles pointed out an apparent inconsistency between Daniels’ testimony Tuesday and his description of the encounter to InTouch magazine in 2011.

“Is this a totally different story than the one you told in 2011?” » said Necheles.

“No,” Daniels replied.

According to Necheles, Daniels told InTouch that Trump kept looking at her during their first meeting on the golf course and that he offered to take her out to dinner.

On Tuesday, Daniels testified that his interaction with Trump during the class was brief and said Trump’s bodyguard extended the dinner invitation on Trump’s behalf.

“This is an abbreviated, entertaining version of the event,” Daniels said of InTouch’s depiction of the events. “There are a few less details.” (

Jurors saw photos of some of the products Stormy Daniels sells on her online store, including T-shirts, comic books and a “Stormy Saint of Indictments” candle.

Defense attorney Susan Necheles used this line of questioning to again suggest that Daniels earns “a large portion of her livelihood” by selling the story of her alleged affair with Trump.

Necheles suggested that Daniels had a habit of making up stories about sex, pointing to his career in adult films.

“You have a lot of experience making fake stories about sex seem real?” » asked Necheles.

“Sex in movies is very real, just like what happened to me in that room,” Daniels responded, adding that if she had fictionalized her encounter with Trump, she “would have written it to be good best”.

Trump lawyer Todd Blanche let out a chuckle when Daniels, referring to sex in adult films, said, “I think we all know how to do that.”
