As Australia’s 9 News reports, the adult film star and director appeared on 60 Minutes Australia to discuss her book and its infamous, meme-inspiring comparisons of Trump’s private anatomy to the mushroom character Toad from the Mario Kart video game.
“In a way, it’s body shaming, and I feel like if I could go back and write the book [again], I think I would have left those details out,” Daniels told reporter Liz Hayes of how she described her alleged tryst with Trump in 2006. “I justify it in a way to myself, even now, saying ‘this is a man who said much worse things about women multiple times, so here’s a taste of your own medicine, a**hole.’”
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, admitted that she felt “pretty terrible” about the description, adding, “No, I did not want to hurt him. My intention was for people to stop hurting me.”
But that’s not to say that she has much sympathy for the man who she says tried to buy her silence over their rumored sexual encounter. Daniels told Hayes it was the “least impressive” sex she’d ever had.
“If I was going to lie about having sex with someone famous — Brad Pitt, here we go,” she joked.
“I would pick somebody way less embarrassing than Donald Trump. Are you kidding? Now no man is ever gonna wanna date me. I’d have at least picked somebody cool.”
