The Brief: In a tweet, President Trump referred to Stormy Daniels as "Horseface."


In reaction to a federal judge dismissing adult film star Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against the president, Trump wrote in a tweet “Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas…”

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, responded to Trump, calling him “a disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States.”

Members of the president’s fan-base have expressed their amusement and support of this comment on Twitter.

English media personality Katie Hopkins joked that since Stormy has been called a “horseface,” Hopkins will no longer have to bear that title, which was given to her by a sensational Daily Star report.

Many others have criticized Trump for this comment, calling it insulting, sexist, and hypocritical.
