Stormy Daniels claims she had unprotected sex with Donald Trump and spanked him with a magazine during their alleged affair, but was never physically attracted to him.
The porn star made the bombshell statements on 60 Minutes on Sunday night in her highly-anticipated interview with Anderson Cooper.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has dodged questions about her relationship with the president for months since the claims came to light.
But the 39-year-old finally adult actress finally dished on her liaisons with The Donald.
She told Cooper: ‘He was like, ‘Wow, you— you are special. You remind me of my daughter,” she said. ‘He was like, “You’re smart and beautiful, and a woman to be reckoned with, and I like you. I like you.'”
They had unprotected sex not long after, she told Cooper.

The adult actress discussed the alleged affair which started in 2006 – several months after the birth of Barron Trump

Daniels said Trump told her not to worry about his wife, Melania, who’d just given birth to their son, Barron.
She also claimed Trump called her often and said he would try and get her on Celebrity Apprentice.
Daniels refused to say whether she had any texts or photographic evidence of the relationship.
When asked why she was coming forward to talk about what happened, she said: ‘Because people are just saying whatever they wanted to say about me, I was perfectly fine saying nothing at all, but I’m not okay with being made out to be a liar, or people thinking that I did this for money and people are like, “Oh, you’re an opportunist.
‘You’re taking advantage of this. Yes, I’m getting more job offers now, but tell me one person who would turn down a job offer making more than they’ve been making, doing the same thing that they’ve always done?’
She then insisted she is not a victim.
‘This is not a “Me Too.” I was not a victim. I’ve never said I was a victim. I think trying to use me to – to further someone else’s agenda, does horrible damage to people who are true victims.
Reports of their illicit fling came to light in January, when it was reported that Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 to sign a non-disclosure agreement just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
She is now suing Trump over the hush agreement and claims it is void.
The president’s attorneys claim Daniels is liable for more than $20 million in damages for violations of the agreement.
Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted on Sunday that the interview was just the beginning of the saga, and hinted that more evidence will be released.
The White House confirmed on Sunday that Trump and first lady Melania were not together during the show.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said Melania stayed in Florida while the president returned to Washington D.C. just before the 40 minutes.
Trump gave a thumbs up to a waiting crowd of reporters as he got off Air Force One.
But he did not respond to shouted questions about whether he would watch the Daniels interview as he boarded Marine One for the White House.
The New York Times reported that Trump had dinner with his lawyer Cohen on Saturday night.
The first couple spent the weekend at the ‘Winter White House,’ the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, after a week of sending out mixed message about the state of their marriage.
The 60 Minutes interviewed was recorded several weeks ago, but there have been significant updates in Daniels’ case and more allegations have been made concerning Trump’s alleged infidelity,

Last Thursday night, Avenatti, tweeted an image of what looked like a CD or DVD, with the caption: ‘If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is this worth???? #60minutes #pleasedenyit #basta.’
On Friday, Melania Trump took a separate motorcade to Joint Base Andrews, a day after CNN aired an interview with one of the president’s alleged mistresses, former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal.
Hours before that interview aired on Thursday, the first lady had tweeted a picture of the couple, smiling and standing close to each other on the Truman Balcony, showing off the recent Washington snowfall.
‘Greetings from @WhiteHouse,’ Melania Trump wrote.
McDougal, who spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the same journalist Daniels sat down with for the 60 Minutes Q&A, said she ‘had unprotected sex’ with the then-reality TV star after they met in 2006.
The Trumps were married in January 2005.
McDougal said she developed feelings for Trump during their 10-month affair.

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, upped the ante on Donald Trump, tweeting a photo last Thursday that suggests there’s photographic or video evidence of the president’s affair with the porn star on a disk
Avenatti previously tweeted this dramatic image of Daniels allegedly passing a polygraph test in 2011, suggesting she was telling the truth about having unprotected sex with Trump
‘After we had been intimate, he tried to pay me, and I actually didn’t know how to take that,’ she said.
She said she was hurt by the cash offer, which she turned down.
‘I don’t even know how to describe the look on my face,’ she said. ‘It must have been so sad.’
Later that year she was also given an apartment in New York City as a Christmas gift, but lost it after the two split.
McDougal says she told Trump: ‘That’s not me. I’m not that kind of girl.’
‘And he said, ‘Oh,’ and he said, ‘You’re really special’,’ she said, adding that ‘it hurt me that he saw me in that light.’
The White House has denied the president had an affair with McDougal.
McDougal also tearfully recalls feeling guilty when she went to Trump’s apartment in Trump Tower and he showed her Melania Trump’s bedroom.
McDougal thought it was odd that Trump’s wife slept in a separate bedroom.
‘I thought maybe they were having issues,’ she said.
McDougal recalls feeling uncomfortable walking into the apartment of a married man whose wife just had a baby.
‘What can you say except I’m sorry?’ she said, thinking of the now-first lady. ‘I’m sorry, I wouldn’t want it done for me.’
On January 12, the Wall Street Journal broke the story that President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 in October 2016 in exchange for her signing a non-disclosure agreement to keep quiet about an alleged decade-old affair with the GOP nominee.
The president has denied having affairs with Daniels and also McDougal.
Throughout the rest of the month of January, the Trumps were seldom seen together.
They were photographed returning from Mar-a-Lago on January 15.

More details about the alleged affair came out on January 17, when In Touch Weekly published a long-buried interview conducted with Daniels.
The Trumps rode in the same motorcade after the president delivered his State of the Union address on January 31, with the first lady opting to take a separate ride to the Capitol Building, with her spokeswoman saying it was simply so she could spend more time with her guests.
In the meantime, FLOTUS had ditched plans to travel to Davos, Switzerland to be at her husband’s side when he addressed the World Economic Forum.
Instead she made a solo visit to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., before heading to the airport to make an unannounced trip to Mar-a-Lago, for a spa day.
In recent weeks, however, the first lady has spoken at a number of events – including one last Monday where she was the opening act for her husband, as they both spoke of the opioid epidemic while in Manchester, New Hampshire.

60 Minutes kept the contents of the interview close to its chest. In the only clip revealed before Sunday’s show, Daniel didn’t speak.
On Sunday, some of the president’s allies were already pushing back on the interview, with Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy charging that Daniels’ telegenic lawyer Michael Avenatti had worked for Democratic candidates and thus the whole thing was a political stunt.
‘This is politically motivated to hurt and embarrass [Trump] in some way,’ Ruddy said on ABC’s This Week. ‘And, you know what, at the end of the day the poll numbers for the president are up.’
Trump’s approval rating is now sitting in the mid-40s.
‘So I think the American people are really dismissing this as political witch hunts,’ Ruddy said.

‘I wasn’t like the popular girl, and I wasn’t the jock, and I wasn’t the ditz. I don’t know. I was just sort of in the middle of the road,’ Daniels told the Times about her status in school.
She continues to compete in equestrian shows, which she takes very personally, one of her trainers, Dominic Schramm, told the Times.
‘She does well,’ Schramm said of her hobby riding horses. ‘She can be quite hard on herself.’
