A wide-ranging interview with former adult-film star and purported Trump mistress Stormy Daniels published in InTouch magazine - a supermarket tabloid - produced many notable soundbites - “Trump is afraid of sharks” “I could describe his junk in perfect detail”- was virtually ignored by the mainstream press on Friday, just like initial reports about a payoff involving a prominent Trump lawyer were buried by "shithole-gate" the week before.
But that didn’t stop the New York Times from sending one of its White House reporters to Greenville South Carolina to cover the beginning of Daniels’s “Make America Horny Again” national strip club tour - the 38-year-old’s attempt to cash in on her newfound notoriety.
Daniels was stripping at the Trophy Club in Greenville Saturday; she had also made an appearance at the Women’s March in Greenville, accompanied by anti-Trump signage.
Trophy Club owner Jay Levy bragged to the Times about the event’s affordable cover charge: Only $20 - just double the price of regular, non-Stormy evenings.
“Pigs get fat. Hogs get slaughtered,” said Jay Levy, the Trophy Club’s owner, explaining the relative bargain for guests. “I’ve got to take care of my people. I’ll take advantage of the situation, but not my people."
