While he has been noticeably quiet about her in the past months, President Trump has finally broken his silence on Stormy Daniels.
A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)! https://t.co/9Is7mHBFda— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2018
Daniels recently unveiled a sketch of a man that she claims threatened her in Las Vegas about seven years ago. Daniels alleges that the man approached her and demanded that she "leave Trump alone" and "forget the story."
Trump, who does not appear to have made any official public statements about Daniels before now, tweeted in response to someone sharing the sketch along with a photo of Daniels and her husband, Brendon Miller, who looks strikingly similar to the man in the sketch.
"A sketch years later about a nonexistent man," Trump tweeted. "A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!"
While at least one person noted the resemblance of Daniels' spouse, shortly after the sketch was released many others thought it looked like New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady.

"OMG I knew it had to be Tom Brady ," joked radio host Ben Shapiro, while journalist Jemele Hill asked, "Uh is it just me or does he kind of look like Tom Brady?"
"Apparently the man who threatened Stormy Daniels has several Super Bowl rings and goes by the alias 'Tom Brady,' " another person quipped.
The alleged confrontation appears to be related to the swirling controversy that Daniels and Trump once had an affair while his wife Melania Trump was pregnant with their son Baron Trump.
While the public has only recently become aware of the alleged relationship between the two, actor Seth Rogen admitted that Daniels told him about it a decade ago.
While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres, Rogen explained that the two of them chatted while she was on set for two of his films, 2005's The 40-Year-Old Virgin and 2007's Knocked Up, both of which she briefly appeared in.1comments
"I've known Stormy Daniels a long time and I'll be honest she may have mentioned some of this stuff around ten years ago," Rogen said. "At the time when you ask porn star who they've been sleeping with and they say Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that you could have said."
"So yeah she mentioned it actually. She did mention it and again at the time it wasn't that surprising," he added. "And as his campaign rolled out it became clear that no one cared about anything he did so it didn't really occur to me that it would come out or anyone would care about it. But when it did I was like, 'oh yeah, Stormy told us all about that!' "
