Porn actress Stephanie Clifford, best known by the stage name Stormy Daniels, made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday night in which she called into question the signature on a recent letter denying an affair with President Trump.
Clifford, whom the the Wall Street Journal reported was paid $130,000 by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to keep quiet about a 2006 affair with the billionaire-turned-president, said the signature on a new denial letter published by BuzzFeed did not look authentic.
The Tuesday statement, released ahead of Clifford’s interview with Kimmel, read:
“Over the past few weeks I have been asked countless times to comment on reports of an alleged sexual relationship I had with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago.
“The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 2011, 2016, 2017 and now again in 2018. I am not denying the affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.
“I will have no further comment on this matter. Please feel free to check me out on Instagram at @thestormydaniels.”
But Kimmel had to be extremely disappointed when she continued to deny having the affair with Trump.
Kimmel compared the signature on the BuzzFeed-published document to the one on the original affair denial, as well as to autographed pictures he obtained.

“Did you sign this letter that was released today?
“I don’t know, did I?” Clifford responded, adding “Doesn’t look like my signature, does it?”
She also said she didn’t know where the BuzzFeed letter came from, stating flatly “It came from the Internet.”
“I also work for FBI and I’m a man, according to the Internet today,” Clifford joked when Kimmel asked about her role in the statement.
The adult entertainer repeatedly skirted questions regarding to her relationship with the president. At one point, Kimmel questioned her about a 2011 interview she did with the magazine “In Touch,” which wasn’t published until this year.
Clifford said she didn’t do the interview “as it is written.”
Kimmel had teased the interview with the president’s alleged mistress over the course of the last week.

Both Clifford and President Trump have denied the allegations. This time, she’s done it publicly on late night television.
