'Oh my god': Stormy Daniels testifies on spanking Trump, his gold tweezers, and silky PJs (2024)

p*rn star Stormy Daniels took the witness stand Tuesday in Donald Trump's hush money trial and her testimony did not disappoint those who anticipated juicy revelations.

Trump is on trial for 34 counts of falsifying business records. Prosecutors allege Trump covered up reimbursem*nts paid to his former lawyer Michael Cohen, who was convicted of violating campaign finance law when paying Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to stay quiet about their 2006 alleged sexual encounter.

While Trump has denied the allegation, Daniels' testimony about the July 2006 night provided plenty of details.

Judge Juan Merchan appeared upset that her testimony contained so much arguably irrelevant information, sustaining many of Trump lawyer Susan Necheles' frequent objections.

Here is how Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, described the evening as she answered questions from prosecutors:

Daniels was not an eager participant

She described being shaken by their sexual encounter, the New York Times reported, but she didn't say no. She "didn't say anything at all."

Daniels was 27 when she met Trump at a golf tournament

Daniels described working at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in July 2006 while she was under contract as an adult film director, writer, and actress. Daniels was 27 years old. She didn't know Trump's age, but she knew he was probably as old or older than her father. Trump was 60.

A Trump bodyguard named Keith approached Daniels at the tournament, saying Trump would like to know if she would like to have dinner with him, Daniels testified. She ultimately gave the bodyguard her phone number.

Daniels said she received advice that day about going to the dinner, which could open up professional opportunities.

Trump met her at the door wearing silky pajamas

Daniels said when she arrived at Trump's hotel suite, she said hello and he came out wearing silk or satin pajamas. She made a joke by asking if Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, knew Trump was wearing Hefner's pajamas.

She told Trump to go change and he obliged, she said. He put on a dress shirt and dress pants.

Trump said he wasn't sleeping in the same room with his wife

Daniels described seeing a photo of Melania Trump when she was talking with Donald Trump in his hotel suite. She said to Trump: "She's very beautiful – What about your wife?" Trump told Daniels not to worry about that, that he and Melania Trump didn't sleep in the same room, according to Daniels' testimony.

Daniels spanked Trump's butt in the hotel suite

Daniels thought Trump was being rude, and she told him someone should spank him, and he gave her a look as if he was daring her to do it.

She took a magazine, instructed him to turn around, and swatted his behind with it, she testified. They then continued to talk "and he was much more polite."

Trump said Daniels reminded him of his daughter

While talking about the possibility of Daniels appearing on "The Apprentice," Trump said to Daniels that she reminded him of his daughter, who is smart and beautiful, Daniels testified.

Trump had a pair of golden tweezers and golden manicure tools

Daniels described the items in Trump's bathroom, noting Old Spice, and manicure items that appeared to be made of gold, such as gold tweezers.

'Oh my God': Daniels thought seeing Trump posing on bed in underwear

When Daniels came out of the bathroom, Trump was on the bed posing in underwear, as if waiting for her, she testified. She said she thought in her head, "Oh my God," and asked herself what she had misread.

Daniels said she laughed nervously when she came out of the bathroom and saw Trump on the bed in his underwear. She said she at first tried to make a joke and step around to leave.

She said she didn't feel physically threatened by him, although she knew there was a bodyguard right outside. She said there was a power imbalance but she wasn't threatened. She referred to their sexual position when they allegedly had sex and the defense objected to that testimony, which the judge sustained.

Prosecutor Susan Hoffinger asked whether Trump wore a condom and Daniels said no. Hoffinger asked if Daniels said anything about it – appearing to refer to not wearing a condom – and Daniels replied: "I didn't say anything at all."
