Stephen Colbert Has A Plan To Get A Stormy Daniels' Pay-Off: 'I Had Sex With Donald Trump'

As the twisting saga of President Donald Trump and Stephanie Clifford, better known as adult actress Stormy Daniels, took another surprise turn with the revelatory interviews of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani (now a part of Trump's legal team), Stephen Colbert saw an opportunity.

"Trump is claiming that he paid [his lawyer, Michael] Cohen a monthly fee to hush-up all the affairs he wasn't having," the Late Show host said during his Thursday night monologue. "So that means anyone can just say they had an affair with Donald Trump and leave with $130,000. In that case, I had sex with Donald Trump."

After the cheers of his crowd, Colbert reassured the audience that the claim was not true but joked that with everything else the president is dealing with, it would be a "terrible time for it to come out."

During an appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, Giuliani, a member of President Trump's legal team, suggested that Trump had known about a payment made by his attorney, Michael Cohen, to the porn star, Stormy Daniels.

Trump had previously said he did not know about the payment. He later took to Twitter to claim that non-disclosure agreements such as the one entered into by Cohen and Daniels are "very common among celebrities and people of wealth."

Appearing on Colbert's show, Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, produced a new piece of evidence—a receipt. Avenatti showed a copy of the wire transfer from Cohen to Daniels for the $130,000 payment.

According to Avenatti, the receipt is significant as it shows the payment coming from a San Francisco bank—something which could give California Attorney General Xavier Becerra "jurisdiction over certain criminal acts associated with this payment," Avenatti said.
