“Stormy Daniels Day”: Porn superstar receives key to the city of West Hollywood

“Stormy Daniels Day”: Porn superstar receives key to the city of West Hollywood

The City of West Hollywood will declare Wednesday, May 23, as “Stormy Daniels Day,” when Mayor John Duran and other city officials will present the porn actress with the key to the city.

Staying on topic, Daniels will accept the award at Chi Chi LaRue, the adult store on Santa Monica Boulevard.

“Stormy Daniels is the bravest woman in America standing up to the greatest tyrant in the country right now,” Duran told TheWrap. “Donald Trump is a continuing threat to the LGBT community and immigrants in West Hollywood. It will be my great honor to present her with the key to the city.”

According to the city's statement, Daniels is being honored for her “leadership in the #Resist movement.”

“During these politically turbulent times, Daniels has proven to be a brave face by speaking truth to power even when her safety is threatened and she faces extreme intimidation,” the statement said. “Following the election of President Trump, the West Hollywood City Council reaffirmed the City of West Hollywood's commitment to being a sanctuary city and affirmed the City's commitment to its core values, which include respect and support for the people.”

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Trump to overturn the nondisclosure agreement she signed in 2016 for $130,000 that Cohen paid her. Daniels said the nondisclosure agreement required her to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the president a decade earlier.

She is also suing Trump for defamation after he called some of her statements on Twitter “fraud.” The transaction is now being investigated for possible violations of campaign finance law. Cohen is also being investigated for bank fraud.
