Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who claims to have had an affair with former President Donald Trump, is back in the news this week after she made another round of comments about former President Donald Trump.
During an interview on “Good Morning Britain,” Daniels said she regrets coming forward about her alleged affair and said she fears Trump will “get away with” the criminal charges he faces tied to alleged hush-money payouts.
“I spoke my truth, but it was just for nothing. I just feel like if people don’t want to face facts and see the truth … then you know what, I’d rather have had the time back with my family. I almost feel like humans aren’t really worth saving at this point,” Daniels said dejectedly.
“Truth doesn’t seem to matter. Because I’m the one that gets the messages from his supporters. They’ve gone after friends and family,” she said, alleging Trump supporters have come after her.
“In 2018, when the story first broke about me, of course, I was attacked — I was called a sl** and a gold digger and, and all of these horrible things that I probably can’t say on TV,” she said. “But now they’ve become bold. And they’ve changed — their threats are more real.”
The interview came a week after another sit-down she did with Fox Nation.
She sat with host Piers Morgan for an interview in which she said she would testify against the former president if asked. She also said that even she does not think Trump should be incarcerated based on this case.
“I just finished an astonishing 90-minute interview with Stormy Daniels,” the interviewer said on Twitter. “Everyone’s had their say about her, now she tells HER story about the fling that may send President Trump to prison.”
“It’s daunting, but I look forward to it. You know what I mean? Because I have nothing to hide,” Daniels said of testifying. “I’m the only one that has been telling the truth. And, you know, it can’t shame me anymore.”
“I think having them call me in and put me on the stand legitimizes my story and who I am. And if they don’t, it almost feels like they’re hiding me,” she said.
She does not believe he deserves to be imprisoned in the hush money case but had thoughts on other cases against him.
“I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration,” she said. “I feel like the other things that he has done, if he is found guilty. Absolutely.”

Last month, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals awarded Trump $121,962.56 in attorney fees from Daniels.
The nearly $122,00 is in addition to the roughly $500,000 that she was ordered to pay him last year.
The ruling came down as Trump was in Manhattan and pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations that he falsified business records related to Daniels’s hush money case.
Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in a case involving his purported role in hush money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.
The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling is separate from the Manhattan case.
In early April, Daniels spoke to the New York Post and said she is concerned that she has made life worse for Americans.
When asked if she believed it would be worth it if her scandal prevented Trump from becoming president again, she said, “It depends on who would get elected instead. It could be even worse. And then I’ve made the most terrible mistake,” The New York Post reported.
