Stormy Daniels has a day named after her, gets keys to the City of West Hollywood
West Hollywood Mayor John Duran, in a tweet leading up to Wednesday's event, stated that "right-wing hate mail is pouring in" over his city’s decision to recognize Daniels
The City of West Hollywood on Wednesday presented adult film star Stormy Daniels with the key to the city and proclaimed May 23 as "Stormy Daniels Day." The city in California is known to go out of its way to denounce President Donald Trump, and considering his scandal with Daniels, he now has one more reason to not visit the region.
Reports state that the adult movie star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and President Trump had an alleged affair shortly after the First Lady gave birth to his youngest son Barron Trump. The speculations of the alleged affair between the president and the adult star first surfaced after the Wall Street Journal, on January 12, reported that one of Trump's lawyers, Michael Cohen, had arranged a $130,000 payment for Daniels to keep the duo's alleged affair under wraps.
Daniels has now filed lawsuits against President Trump and his lawyer Cohen, seeking the non-disclosure agreement to be nullified, claiming the Republican did not sign it.
West Hollywood released a statement on Wednesday stating that it was honoring Daniels for "her leadership in the #RESIST movement" and particularly for being a "national figure in the resistance to the Trump administration."
"In these politically tumultuous times, Daniels has proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation,” the statement said.
West Hollywood Mayor John Duran, in a tweet leading up to Wednesday's event, stated that "right-wing hate mail is pouring in" over his city’s decision to recognize Daniels. “It tells me I am doing something right," he added.
West Hollywood has a reputation for slamming Trump, the city's mayor in 2016 Lindsey Horvath had written a letter to the then-presidential candidate informing him that his "campaign of violence and intimidation is not welcome in our city.”
"I demand that you renounce calls to violence and consider the role you play in shaping public discourse, specifically with the words you choose and the behavior you exhibit and encourage," Horvath added in the letter.
"We do not have to agree or like one another, but as Americans and political figures in the public eye, we share a responsibility to lead by example."
Reports state that West Hollywood's City Council, in June 2017, had also passed a resolution which called on the United States House of Representatives to start initiating President Trump's impeachment.
