While Donald Trump was getting arrested yesterday (4 March), Stormy Daniels was posting an x-rated tweet mocking him and responding to the hate that's been sent her way.
Trump was indicted by a grand jury over allegations that he forked over $130,000 (£104,000) in 'hush money' to porn star Stormy Daniels in October 2016, to stop her from speaking about them having sex.
Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, said Trump told him to make the payment and was reimbursed by the president. In 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to criminal charges and was sentenced to three years in prison.
He testified that Trump told him to make the hush money payment to Daniels 'for the principal purpose of influencing the election'.
The former US president has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him, and he is already selling merchandise to his supporters about his trial and arrest.
A number of famous faces took to social media to mock Trump and his family following his arrest, while Stormy Daniels herself also weighed in on proceedings.
She had previously sounded a warning that, if and when Trump was arrested, there would be 'violence, injuries and death', explaining that the threats made against her by the ex-president's supporters had become 'straight up violent', and now included threats to murder her.
Now she's fired back at some of the hate Trump supporters have sent her way. With an x-rated tweet, Daniels has said that people were calling her a 'c*m dumpster' and telling them it was 'definitely more fun being under my sexy man instead of under arrest'.
In a statement after the court hearing, Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg said: "The People of the State of New York allege that Donald J. Trump repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal crimes that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election.
"Manhattan is home to the country’s most significant business market. We cannot allow New York businesses to manipulate their records to cover up criminal conduct."
"As the Statement of Facts describes, the trail of money and lies exposes a pattern that, the People allege, violates one of New York’s basic and fundamental business laws."
Following his arrest in New York and entering his not guilty plea in court, Trump has since returned to Florida and his Mar-a-Lago home.
He is due to appear in court again on 4 December.
