President Trump calls Stormy Daniels 'Horseface,' says he will 'go after' her and Avenatti

President Donald Trump tweeted late Tuesday morning that he will "go after" Stormy Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, calling the porn star "Horseface."

“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials (sic) lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!" Trump tweeted.

Avenatti quickly responded on Twitter.

".@realDonaldTrump - tens of millions of Americans are tired of your fraud, lies, and corruption. They are equally tired of your attacks on women, especially the ones who you have had sex with while cheating on your wives. We (and the UN) are laughing AT YOU, not with you. #Basta," the lawyer tweeted.

Daniels also responded on Twitter a short time later.

"Ladies and Gentlemen,  may I present your president. In addition to his...umm...shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny," she tweeted.

Trump's tweet comes a day after a judge in New York threw out the lawsuit and ordered Daniels to repay Trump's legal fees.

Daniels claims that she and the President had sex in 2006, shortly after Trump married his current wife Melania. She claims she was later threatened to keep quiet about the affair. She also later signed a non-disclosure agreement, saying she would keep quiet in exchange for payment.

Daniels claimed that Trump defamed her when he said she lied about being threatened to keep quiet about the affair. US District Judge James Otero ruled Monday that Trump's speech was protected by the First Amendment.

Pool reports indicate that Trump had no public events scheduled for this morning.

More on this as it develops.
