Rich Lowry: It's the Bill Clinton redux

President Donald Trump has referred to stories around his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels as a 'political hoax, ' a friend of the president said.

The President flew to Washington DC tonight as the x-rated actress, real name Stephanie Clifford, made her long awaited appearance on CBS's 60 Minutes.

In the court filing, Clifford alleges their affair was more than a decade ago, and says Trump's lawyer paid her $130,000 to stay silent just before the 2016 election.

Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that more details of the affair would come out on "60 Minutes", and said his office was checking out similar claims from six women who had come forward.

At the global box office, the film has collected more than $1.2 billion against a pre-marketing budget of $200 million. Worldwide, Black Panther has surpassed more than $1.2 billion in ticket sales, good for 14th place.

When porn star Stormy Daniels appears Sunday night on "60 Minutes", this much is clear: The segment won't be family viewing in the White House.

"Michael Avenatti, Daniels's attorney, responded sarcastically on Twitter, comparing her claims to other "hoaxes" like the moon landing". But first lady Melania Trump, who traveled to Florida with the president on Friday, is staying behind.

Stormy Daniels says she had an affair with Mr Trump that began in 2006 and lasted for several months and that it was shortly after the President's wife Melania gave birth to the couple's first son Barron.

Instead, she and her former lawyer struck a deal with Mr Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, according to Ms Daniels' lawsuit. The government watchdog group Common Cause argues that the payment was meant to influence the 2016 election by silencing Daniels and therefore was an illegal in-kind contribution to Trump's campaign.
