Adult film star Stormy Daniels decided to provide alternative programming to President Trump’s speech on Tuesday night with a risqué Instagram Live broadcast. While the president addressed the nation about border security and the ongoing government shutdown, the alleged former mistress of Trump folded laundry in her underwear.
“If you’re looking for anything even remotely worth watching tonight at 9pm EST, [when Trump’s address aired] I will be folding laundry in my underwear for 8 minutes on Instagram live,” Daniels announced earlier in the day on Twitter.
The controversial entertainer delivered on her promise with a very candid live stream.

Amused viewers weighed in as Daniels got to business on her bed, clad in little more than a lacy purple bra and matching underwear and listening to cheeky song picks like Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” and Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” — obvious references to the president’s proposed border wall and Daniels’s own sordid history with him.
“Brilliant,” “flippin’ awesome,” “American hero” and “I salute you, #patriot,” were just some of the comments Daniels received as she gingerly and silently folded items, including a pair of Penthouse leggings, a Freddie Mercury T-shirt and a red thong. She ended the broadcast with a dig at the commander in chief by going to town on a bag of Cheetos — the snack Trump is often compared to because of his notoriously orange-ish complexion.
During and after the presidential address, people took to social media to share their reactions to Daniels’s silly stunt. “You nailed it!” one commenter wrote. “You were the only thing that made sense last night,” another person wrote.
Some got in on the joke by asking Daniels for advice about washing thongs (“do you use warm or hot water?”) and folding fitted sheets.

According to Daniels, more than 100,000 people watched her laundry activity.
Yesterday I taught over 100k people how to fold a thong. What should I do today…? Guess you'll have to wait and see!
