'Only in Hollyweird.’ Newsroom commenters are fired up about ‘Stormy Daniels Day’

“What’s the world coming to?” “Stormy is laughing all the way to the bank.” Stephanie Clifford, aka adult film star Stormy Daniels, has Newsroom readers fired up over her latest headline-making story.

Mark this in your calendars: The city of West Hollywood, Calif., has proclaimed May 23 “Stormy Daniels Day.” But wait, there’s more! The woman who claimed to have had an affair with Donald Trump a decade ago is also getting the key to the city.

According to Mayor John Duran, she was chosen for the honor because she “is the most courageous woman in America right now taking on the biggest bully in the country. Donald Trump is a continuing threat to the LGBT community and immigrants in West Hollywood.”

Although city officials support the decision, some Newsroom commenters are outraged: “You have got to be kidding.” Another reader wrote, “Why is success these days measured by social media popularity?”

Daniels is suing President Trump over a nondisclosure agreement she signed in 2016 for $130,000. She said she was paid by Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen to keep quiet about the alleged affair. She is also suing Trump for defamation after he called some of her statements “fraud” on Twitter.
