Stormy Daniels appeared to contradict her own released statement earlier in the day denying an affair with Donald Trump.

A reported $130,000 cash settlement signed in 2016 included a non-disclosure agreement which precludes her from speaking on the record about the affair. But perhaps the most interesting and telling parts of this, as Jimmy Kimmel tried in vain to ascertain whether or not there had been an affair was when he asked her about a 2011 interview with In Touch magazine which detailed her alleged tryst with President Shitgibbon. "Is any of it true?", asked Kimmel. "Define 'true' ", she replied coyly. In some ways, that's a perfect analogy for the entire Trump era and the fact-free universe we now live in. Nothing is true unless we say it is, and if you say differently we'll sue your ass off.

The allegations that Donald Trump paid hush money to hide an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels took another bizarre twist on Tuesday night during an interview with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel that followed the president’s first State of the Union address.

Hours before she was set to appear on the show, Daniels issued a surprise statement in which she flatly denied the affair in 2006. But on the show, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, cast doubt on the authenticity of the statement, only to be contradicted by her attorney moments after the interview concluded.

“She was having fun on Kimmel and being her normal playful self,” her attorney, Keith Davidson, told the Guardian in an email.

“The signature is indeed hers as she signed the statement today in the presence of me and her manager, Gina Rodriguez.”

And some of the back and forth between Kimmel and Daniels, as she did her best not to answer anything directly.

“Did you sign this letter that was released today?” he asked.

“I don’t know, did I?” Daniels said, refusing to answer directly.

“That doesn’t look my signature, does it?” she replied coyly when he asked again.

“It doesn’t look like your signature,” Kimmel agrees. “So you’re saying perhaps this letter was written and released without your approval?”

“Hm,” Daniels said, laughing with the audience.

“Do you know where it came from? Do you have any idea?” Kimmel asked.

“I do not know where,” she said.
