Donald Trump has kept uncharacteristically quiet when it comes to the Stormy Daniels case.
Ordinarily he would have insulted her and come up with a demeaning nickname for her on Twitter, doubly so since she’s a woman, and he’s a rampant misogynist. (Happy International Women’s Day BTW!)
Maybe it’s because his lawyers have advised him not to say anything incriminating, which, considering his personal lawyer Michael Cohen apparently paid the porn star $130K in hush money during the final days of his presidential campaign, is ANYTHING AT ALL.
But when press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the actress’ new lawsuit against POTUS, her deflection may have given too much away.
See, Sanders told the press corps the case had “already been won in arbitration” and that it was “in the president’s favor.”
Two things wrong with that. First, it’s total B.S. as the suit has NOT gone to arbitration, per Daniels’ attorney.
Of course, Trump is fine with B.S. More importantly was that she was admitting Trump had some kind of legal agreement with Daniels — after all, if he won a decision about his NDA, it meant he HAD an NDA! LOLz!
Trump is reportedly PISSED about the whole thing, per sources speaking to CNN‘s Jim Acosta:
From @Acosta: A source close to White House says Trump is upset with @PressSec Sarah Sanders over her handling of Stormy Daniels questions yesterday. “POTUS is very unhappy,” the source said. “Sarah gave the Stormy Daniels storyline steroids yesterday,” the source added.

Will Sanders be the next member of Team Trump to step down over this??
We’ll have to see…
