Fake news! That is what Donald Trump is claiming after Stormy Daniels' sketch of the name who allegedly threatened her went public. The politician shared his opinion of the drawing on Twitter — and totally tried to discredit the claim that the porn star was intimidated and told to "leave Mr. Trump alone" in 2011.
"A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)," he tweeted alongside a story claiming that the name in the sketch is actually Stormy's husband Glendon Crain (also known as Brendon Miller). However, others don't believe the man is "nonexistent" — and are pointing to Trump's Director of Surveillance Matthew Calamari Jr. as the main suspect.

Earlier this month, Stormy's attorney Michael Avenatti hired a sketch artist to identify the suspect. "Stephanie Clifford @Stormy Daniels with Lois Gibson, the foremost forensic artist in the world. #thugsearch #searchforthetruth #basta," he tweeted. According to The Blast, Michael will be offering a reward for anyone who can provide information on the man.
In her recent 60 Minutes interview, the 39-year-old beauty revealed how she was confronted by this unknown man while she was with her daughter in Las Vegas. "I was in a parking lot going to a fitness class with my infant daughter… and a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'" she said. "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'A beautiful little girl. It would be a shame if something happened to her mom.' And then he was gone."
Stormy went on to explain how she did not go to police because she was scared. Meanwhile, the President continues to deny the affair and claims he had no idea that his attorney paid the porn star $130,000 in hush money one month before the election. "You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael,” he said when asked about the payment.
Manhunt aside, Stormy suffered a small legal setback last month when a judge denied her request to depose the POTUS in her lawsuit to throw out the non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2016. She plans to refile the motion. Plus, her Stormy's Penthouse cover is just around the corner.
