Porn star Stormy Daniels has taken the classic politician’s non-denial denial to a new level with her comments on the alleged affair.

Stormy Daniels, an adult film star, isn’t making it any easier for America to find out whether her alleged affair with President Trump really happened or is just a tall tale made up by Daniels or the so-called “fake news.”

From signed statements that completely deny the affair to telling talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel that Trump has “good taste” and that she had no idea where a signed statement came from, this whole controversy has a lot of people confused and adds a whole new level to the classic non-denial denial. 

We’ve seen politicians for years send messages that appear like a clear cut denial to a story or accusation when really they’ve carefully crafted their words and left the door open to accusations being correct.  

The phrase was famously used during the Watergate scandal and Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. The Trump Administration has also mastered the art of carefully crafted statements, but Daniels has seemingly reinvented the format.

Opinion: The Stormy Daniels hush money scandal is a big deal. We’re treating it that way.

It began with a Wall Street Journal story last month, alleging that Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, sent Daniels a $130,000 payment shortly before the election through a newly created limited liability company. The payment also included an agreement that prevented her from discussing the incident publicly, the newspaper reported. 

At the time, Daniels was reportedly talking with several media outlets for stories about the alleged affair, which supposedly happened about a year after Trump and his wife, Melania, were married. She stopped talking to the outlets around the time of the payment, multiple outlets have said. 

Since the allegations went public, In Touch Weekly published a 2011 interview with Daniels where she went into details about meeting Trump at his golf course in 2006 and their alleged affair. Daniels, a friend and her ex-husband corroborated the account and passed a polygraph test, the magazine said. 

Cohen has vehemently denied the affair and sent a signed statement from Daniels to reporters that says in part: “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false. If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn’t be reading about in the news, you would be reading about it in my book. But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true.” 

Cohen’s statement did not include any mention of the alleged payment. 

A second signed statement was sent out the day of Trump’s State of the Union address, in which Daniels said, “I am not denying this affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.” 

Many have questioned whether the statement was legitimate because Daniels’ signature on the document appeared different. 

Daniels appeared on Inside Edition then separately on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! after Trump’s State of the Union speech but refused to confirm or deny the affair.

She simply smiled and laughed through questions about Trump and remained frustratingly coy, at one point even telling Kimmel she didn’t know where the denial statement came from and agreed that the signature didn’t look like hers. 

Daniels’ manager, Gina Rodriguez, told USA TODAY she was simply being playful when she made those comments and they weren’t meant to be taken with any seriousness. 

“Stormy did a great job on Jimmy Kimmel and she didn’t answer any of the questions that pertained to trump including the statement,” Rodriguez said. “She was playful and fun with her answers to all Jimmy’s questions.”

Rodriguez said the adult-film star is not doing any other interviews, adding she and Keith Davidson, a lawyer for Daniels, watched Daniels sign the two statements. 

While the story is salacious and grabbed headlines, there could be a serious impact on Trump and his team. 

If the payment was made in consultation with Trump or anyone on his campaign for the purpose of influencing the election, it’s likely that would violate federal campaign finance law. 

It seems clear this saga isn’t over.
