President Misogynist

President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly claimed that nobody respects women more than him, referred to Stormy Daniels as “Horseface” in a tweet on Tuesday.

Trump compared the adult film entertainer — who he allegedly had an affair with — to a horse in response to a federal judge’s dismissal of Daniels’ defamation lawsuit. The White House has said Trump believes Daniels lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their relationship in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011.

The defamation suit is separate from the Stormy Daniels lawsuit against Trump and others related to the “hush payment”

Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, called Trump “a disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States” in response on Twitter.

Daniels claims her affair with Trump, which included unprotected sex, started just months after First Lady Melania Trump gave birth to the couple’s only child in 2006. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, admitted to paying Daniels $130,000 in a hush payment weeks before the 2016 election. Cohen eventually reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors after investigations into payments that were made to numerous women who claimed to have affairs with Trump.

Despite repeatedly asserting his unparalleled respect for women, Trump has a long-documented history of sexism and misogyny, including mocking the physical appearance of Republican rivals, commenting about his desire to date underaged girls, rating the attractiveness of women, telling a mother that she was “disgusting” for breastfeeding, mocking the looks of a woman who accused him of sexual assault, referring to women as “a beautiful piece of ass,” comparing an Olympic champion to a “linebacker,” saying “Women, you have to treat them like shit,” claiming he goes “through the roof” if dinner isn’t ready when he gets home, dropping numerous creepy remarks about his own daughter Ivanka, tweeting that Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, calling pregnancy an “inconvenience,” and referring to a Miss Universe winner as “Miss Piggy.”

Stormy Daniels responded quickly, too —
