Porn star Stormy Daniels gave nothing away except a smile as she was grilled about claims she had sex with the president during her first national TV interview.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, hit the headlines after reports surfaced that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 in ‘hush money’ to keep silent about their alleged affair.
In a preview for her interview with Inside Edition, which airs on Thursday, the adult movie star was explicitly asked: ‘Did you have a sexual relationship with Donald Trump?’
She responded with a mysterious smile.

Daniels, a mom-of-one, described how she felt to be at the center of a presidential sex scandal.
‘No one ever looked twice at me before,’ she said. ‘Now everyone is looking at me.’
The 39-year-old, who has more than 150 film credits to her name including starring roles in ‘Good Will Humping’ and ‘Operation Desert Stormy’, previously told In Touch magazine she’d had sex with Trump, and even had a secret year-long affair with the man who would become president.
‘I can definitely describe his junk perfectly, if I ever have to,’ Daniels said of Trump, in the 2011 interview – which was only published in full for the first time on Friday.
In it she described the alleged 2006 sexual encounter with the future president in a hotel room at the Harrah’s Casino in Lake Tahoe following a celebrity charity golf tournament.

The incident is alleged to have occurred just one month after Trump’s wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron.
‘The sex was nothing crazy,’ Daniels recalled. ‘He wasn’t like, chain me to the bed or anything. It was one position.’
Daniels later retracted her claims while Cohen said President Trump ‘vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels.’
Describing their alleged affair, Daniels said Trump ‘definitely seemed smitten’ after their romp. ‘He was like, ‘I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?”
She told ‘In Touch’ that Trump, then a reality TV star, lured her into conversations and sex with a promise that he would get her a role on his show, ‘The Apprentice.’
‘I didn’t have any unrealistic expectations of actually being on the show … So now I wonder if the whole thing was just a f***ing lie,’ she said, to get her into bed.

‘And I guess it worked.’
She also described how she’d watched Shark Week with the president who was ‘terrified’ and ‘obsessed’ with the creatures.
Daniels said that Trump deflected questions about his wife, the future first lady, despite the fact that she was at home with an infant son while he was making publicity appearances.
The porn star now has a baby of her own.
‘At the time, I didn’t think that much about it,’ she explained. ‘But now that I have a baby that’s the same age that his was at the time, I’m like, ‘Wow, what a d**k’.’
When she emerged from the bathroom, ‘he was sitting on the bed and he was like, ‘Come here’,’ she recalled.
‘And I was like, ‘Ugh, here we go.’ And we started kissing. I actually don’t even know why I did it but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please don’t try to pay me’.’
Democratic political consultant based in New Orleans, Andrea Dube, confirmed to Mother Jones magazine that she exchanged emails with another anonymous consultant about Daniels and Trump
‘And then I remember thinking, ‘But I bet if he did, it would be a lot’.’
Daniels is making the most of her 15 minutes of fame with her ‘Make America Horny Again’ tour which kicked off in South Carolina Saturday night.

Meanwhile, life in the Trump camp doesn’t appear to be going quite so smoothly.
It was announced that First Lady Melania Trump would not be joining her husband when he heads to the Swiss Alps for the annual Davos gathering after days of reports about the alleged affair.

The first lady’s office had initially said she should join president and the bevy of cabinet secretaries jetting to Davos for the annual gathering of billionaires, industrialists, and investors.
‘It was determined there were too many scheduling and logistical issues, so Mrs. Trump will not travel to Davos,’ her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told DailyMail.com.
CNN reported that that the first lady had planned to go and then cancelled the trip.

‘In Touch’ released a full transcript of its interview with Daniels, who was allegedly paid $130,000 to keep silent about her fling with Trump just before he entered the presidential race in 2015.
On Thursday the liberal magazine Mother Jones published a 2009 email between two political operatives who were discussing Daniels’ alleged admission to one consultant that Trump ‘had her spank him with a Forbes magazine.’
At the time, she was considering running for a U.S. Senate in Louisiana and Trump’s name came up as a potential donor for her campaign.
Trump was featured on the cover of a Fall 2006 issue of Forbes, pictured with two of his children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka.
Daniels took and passed a polygraph test in 2011 as she talked about her ‘textbook generic’ sexual relations with a married Trump more than a decade ago, In Touch claimed.
Daniels has denied she had an affair with Trump in the past, through a statement issued by Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen
‘We had really good banter. He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful and smart just like his daughter,’ Daniels rold the tabloid in a story that In Touch released this week, on the heels of other news reports about the president and the adult entertainer.
Daniels has previously denied that she engaged in any type of sexual relationship with Trump, in a statement released by the president’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
Trump has also denied having an affair with her. But no one has denied that a hush-money payment was made.
Her alleged affair with the future president began at the American Century celebrity golf tournament at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada, in July 2006.
The adult film star described the initial sexual encounter with the billionaire businessman as ‘nothing crazy’ and admitted to the tabloid that the two didn’t use protection.
