As far as we can know or tell, no one forced porn star Stormy Daniels to come out and try to sell her story of an affair with Donald Trump to the tabloids.

No one forced her to take a six-figure pay-off from Michael Cohen.

No one held a gun to her head and forced her to contract Michael Avenatti, media-whore extraordinaire as her lawyer, and no one forced her to file suit against Trump to get free of her NDA.

No one forced her to do the rounds in the media or appear on Saturday Night Live.

No one forced her to make up a ridiculous story about being accosted by a shadowy thug in a parking lot and no one forced her to release that silly sketch drawing of a man who looked exactly like her ex-husband.

As far as we can know or tell, Stormy Daniels chose to do all of these things on her own.

So it strikes us as a little strange to hear that she’s now blaming Donald Trump of all people for ruining her porn career. And it’s even stranger when any amount of common sense will tell you that Stormy’s name recognition is 100x higher than it’s ever been; we’d bet dollars to doughnuts that she’s never socked away more one-dollar bills in a single year than she did this year.

But hey, she doesn’t have enough time to “write” porn films, which is apparently her passion, so that’s apparently what she means by accusing the president of derailing her career.

At an event called “Sex, Guns and Other Fluff: How Porn Can Set You Free,” Daniels said that the Trump “shitshow” had “completely destroyed” her porn career.

“I had no idea what I was getting myself into,” she whined. “Nor would I realize what a huge impact the circus would have – not only on my life, but the rest of the world.”

And for what ends, you might ask? Certainly, so far Stormy’s legal barrage against the president has yielded no fruit. In fact, since the judge dismissed the defamation suit she brought against Trump, she now owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to the president. That’s in addition to whatever she still owes Avenatti (although it’s possible he took her case pro bono just for the pleasure of getting his face on television).

Speaking of Avenatti, he’s now facing some serious legal jeopardy of his own in Los Angeles, where he has been accused of domestic violence by an Estonian actress.

Daniels has said that if the charges prove true, she will seek alternative representation.
