It’s hard to say who was more excited about Stormy Daniels‘s appearance Tuesday on Jimmy Kimmel Live — the host himself or fellow guest Sarah Paulson, who hung on — and then hilariously reacted to — every word the former porn star uttered.
Daniels, who claims to have had consensual sex with Donald Trump in 2006 while he was married to Melania, was there promoting her new book, Full Disclosure, and Kimmel was ready. Not only did he have pages of the book highlighted and tabbed, at one point he displayed a tray of orange toadstool mushrooms so that Daniels could pick which one most resembled Trump’s “unusual” genitals.
Daniels’s previous appearance on the show was limited by a nondisclosure agreement, so she seemed to have extra fun this time now that she has “less beeps to give.” She got right into detailing the alleged romp, saying when she arrived at his hotel room, he was wearing black silky pajamas. When Kimmel asked if Trump looked like a Halloween pumpkin, she replied, “I’m pretty sure I thought he was channeling Hugh Hefner — significantly less sexy.” For the record, she made him change.
Daniels and Kimmel talked about the magazine Trump allegedly took out — with Daniels saying it was a money mag, but not Forbes. (“Somebody else made up that it was Forbes,” she noted.) The conversation then naturally went to the spanking, which they reenacted for the late-night audience. Kimmel bent over and put a finger to his mouth, and she used her book on his bottom. “Please God, let him be watching this right now,” quipped Kimmel, who has made his thoughts on the president — and his kids — pretty clear.
Daniels maintained that she didn’t use a condom with her married bedmate but said, contrary to reports, he wasn’t a germaphobe when they were intimate. But when Kimmel used the words “made love” in describing the romp, she strongly disagreed. “Gross! What’s wrong with you? I laid there and prayed for death.” Kimmel asked her why she had sex with him them, to which she replied, “I still don’t know,” getting laughs.
Daniels also talked about looking around Trump’s bathroom during her three-hour visit. She claimed — not surprisingly — that he had gold tweezers and grooming tools. However, he also used Pert Plus shampoo and Old Spice after-shave, which she was surprised to see “a man who thought so highly of himself” used.
And of course — the tray of orange toadstool mushrooms. Last time Daniels was on Kimmel’s show, he presented carrots, but after her description of Trump’s “smaller than average,” “unusual penis,” which has “a huge mushroom head — like a toadstool” that made her feel like she “was getting f***ed by a guy with Yeti pubes and a d*** like the mushroom character in Mario Kart,” Kimmel went with the fungi lineup. “Do you know how much hate mail I’ve gotten from people who love Mario Kart?” she replied upon seeing it. “In one day, I managed to ruin half of America’s childhood — and mushroom farming everywhere. Another guy actually sent me a picture of a Yeti cooler on fire.”
After having Kimmel hold up the tray “so that it’s coming at me at the correct angle,” she made her selection of the closest look-alike, which made American Horror Story star Paulson start screaming, “It’s a nubbin. It’s a nubbin.”
Earlier in the day, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump had personally directed an effort in February to stop Daniels from publicly describing their alleged sexual encounter. The president instructed his then-personal-lawyer Michael Cohen and son Eric Trump to work together to block Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, for going public with details.
