Stormy Daniels Says She Isn't Using Trump, Just Wants to Dance, Make Money Moves

When Stormy Daniels, aka Stephanie Clifford, aka President Donald Trump's alleged former mistress, steps into the Truth Detroit gentlemen's club Wednesday night for a live performance, fans looking to see the adult film star's dance moves can get a prime view of the stage by paying up to $100 for a booth seat. That's on top of the $20 cover charge to get into the club after 6 p.m. Seats are first come, first served.

It's all a part of Daniels's plan to get paid.

The 39-year-old actress told the hosts of The View Tuesday morning that she is booking adult dance performances across the nation as part of her effort to earn money while her name is in global headlines because of her alleged affair with the president and the $130,000 his lawyer claims to have paid her to keep her mouth shut. Daniels filed a lawsuit against the president in March, claiming she couldn't be held to the nondisclosure agreement because Trump didn't sign it. She allegedly received the hush money weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

"Yes, I am dancing more. I am making more money," Daniels said on The View. "I'm done being bullied. Done."

Daniels's tour is called "Make America Horny Again," a play on Trump's campaign slogan of "Make America great again."

Co-host Meghan McCain questioned Daniels's approach during her appearance on The View. "It seems like a publicity stunt on some level," McCain said. "I think yesterday because you didn't have anything to do with the case—it seemed a little like you were just trying to get attention. I understand that you're being sued by our president, but it does seem like you're benefitting a lot."

"You've gone on your 'Make America Horny Again' tour," McCain continued. "I'm sure you're making a lot of money—no disrespect. I hadn't heard your name until all of this had happened, and now you're literally live on The View giving an entire interview with us. So it has been beneficial for your career."

Daniels said she didn't name the tour and considered the name "awful." "As far as the tour, yes, I've gotten more bookings than usual, but I'm doing the job that I've been doing for the last, almost 20 years," Daniels said. "Yes, there's a lot of publicity, but I didn't do it for that because this isn't what I want to be known for."

In Detroit, Daniels is scheduled to do three shows, at 8 p.m.,10 p.m. and midnight. Fans have been told to follow the club's Instagram account, @clubtruthdetroit, for more details about her performance. It's unclear if she will actually hit the stage. Her previous planned performance at the Detroit club on March 13 was canceled because of "bad luck," she told the Detroit Free Press. She canceled again earlier this month because of plane delays.

In June, Daniels is expected to perform in Connecticut. "She's going to get on stage like any other performer," Tammy Winstanley, the general manager of the Mardi Gras II Gentlemen's Club in East Windsor, told the Hartford Courant. "Except for, you know, she's Stormy Daniels."
