Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump dismissed

00:28

A federal judge has thrown out Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Trump. The adult film star alleges an unidentified man threatened her and told her to keep quiet about an affair she says she had with Trump in 2006. Daniels worked with a forensic artist to create a sketch of the man. Trump called the sketch a “total con job.” The judge ruled that the president’s comment was “rhetorical hyperbole” protected by the First Amendment.
