Book bares ‘salacious’ details of Trump-Daniels affair
Porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had sex with Donald Trump about a decade before he was elected US president, has published a tell-all memoir that gave “salacious descriptions” of their alleged tryst, according to The Guardian.
The British newspaper reported on Tuesday that it obtained a copy of the book, Full Disclosure, in which Daniels, wondered if Trump was “fit to be president” and claimed that he offered to cheat for her in his reality TV show.
The Guardian said the book described her “mounting disbelief” as Trump won the 2016 primary contests for the Republican presidential nomination.
“It will never happen, I would say,” Daniels told her former castmates who had heard that she had slept with Trump in 2006. “He doesn’t even want to be president.”
She thought that her story about Trump “seemed more sensitive the more he won” in the primaries, the newspaper said.
Going public with story
“The crux of the book, however, follows Daniels’ decision to go public with her story about Trump just before the election, after years of hiding the affair, she writes, from her then husband. Going public meant that she and her daughter would be less vulnerable to attack, she reasoned,” the Guardian said.
Daniels said she was warned by a “large man” in a gym parking lot in 2011 not to tell her story about Trump, according to the Guardian. Trump has said the parking lot encounter was “a total con job.”
Other international news organizations said the book was scheduled to come out on Oct. 2.
“Those moments of fear and doubt—and Daniels’ decision on the eve of the election to sign a $130,000 hush agreement—hang around a detailed description of Daniels’ alleged tryst with Trump during a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe, California. In the book, Daniels writes in sometimes excruciating detail about the president’s genitals and describes her disgust with herself for letting the scene play out,” the Guardian said.
Daniels said she answered many phone calls from Trump over the following year “in hopes that he would make good on his promise to put her on his reality television show, The Apprentice.”
“We’ll figure out a way to get you the challenges beforehand,” she quoted him as saying. “He was going to have me cheat, and it was 100 percent his idea.”
At Lake Tahoe, Daniels wrote that Trump’s bodyguard invited her to dinner that turned out to be an invitation to his penthouse.
Her book “rendered with new and lurid detail” the alleged events that she had previously spoken about.
She described Trump’s penis as “smaller than average” but “not freakishly small” that has “a huge mushroom hear” like a “toadstool.”
“He knows he has an unusual penis,” Daniels wrote.
“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart. …
“It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had, but clearly, he didn’t share that opinion,” she wrote.
Trump has denied any affair with Daniels, but admitted reimbursing his lawyer, Michael Cohen, for the money she received in the hush agreement, the Guardian said.
The book tells Daniels’ story of growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in “poverty, neglect and abuse, including sexual abuse by a middle-aged man” beginning when she was 9 years old, the Guardian said.
The memoir narrates her first experience as a stripper while still in high school, and how she entered the porn industry, where she had risen to become an award-winning director, writer and star, it said.
“With its intensely intimate portrait of a clownish and insecure Trump, the book lands after weeks in which the White House has struggled to debunk a portrait of an outmatched and incompetent president in a separate book, Bob Woodward’s ‘Fear,’ and to debunk an editorial by anonymous administration official claiming that subordinates routinely ignore and subvert the president’s orders,” the Guardian said.
