President Trump finally broke his Twitter silence on the Stormy Daniels saga, dismissing as a “con job” the sketch of a man the porn star said threatened her years ago.

Trump has denied the accusations by Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and had not spoken publicly about Daniels until Wednesday morning when he tweeted in response to an unverified account, calling the person in the sketch a “nonexistent man.”

Daniels, who has alleged that she had an affair with the president more than a decade ago, released the drawing on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday in what co-host Meghan McCain questioned as a publicity stunt. The adult film actress claimed the man in the sketch threatened her in 2011 to remain quiet about her encounter with Trump.

The drawing generated a major response on social media as many speculated about the how the man in the sketch resembled New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady or actor Willem Dafoe, among others.

‘Welcome to the playing field,’ Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted in response to Trump, taking a dig at his personal attorney, Michael Cohen who had his home and offices raided by the FBI over a week ago. Cohen had admitted to paying Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to be quiet about the alleged affair with Trump.

Avenatti fired another shot at his “unhinged, undisciplined opponent.”

The president spoke publicly for the first time about Daniels earlier this month, telling reporters aboard Air Force One that he knew nothing about Cohen’s payment to the porn star.
