Welcome to 2018, where the President of the United States gets into Twitter feuds with porn stars on a regular basis. In today’s edition of the soap opera going on in and around the White House, Donald Trump (AKA the President of the United States) is attacking Stormy Daniels (AKA Stephanie Clifford, adult film star, author and alleged former-lover of DJT) on Twitter again, and this time it’s reeeal bad.

After Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against the president was thrown out by the judge overseeing it, Trump took to Twitter to rub it in her face. In the process, he not only gloated about the ruling, but insulted her appearance by referring to her as “horseface.”

Now, Donald Trump insults people pretty much daily (sometimes several times a day) and we’ve grown a little numb to it at this point. The insult has to be truly despicable for it to break through the constant din of news-related outrage and make a difference. This is one of those times.

What makes this insult worse than calling Hillary “crooked” for the millionth time or Jeff Sessions “dumb” is that it once again reveals the lack of respect Donald Trump has for women. The comments that really stick are the ones where Trump is not just going after someone he’s deemed an enemy, but when he uses that person’s race, gender or another personal quality as an insult. It’s why referring to African countries as “s**t holes” and Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” makes the news — it’s more revealing about the person doing the insulting than the person being insulted.

After the tweet, there was almost immediate backlash to the president’s latest sexist smear. Even cable news shows showed supercuts of all the worst times Donald Trump has disparaged women. For a more in-depth list, The Telegraph has a sexism tracker that dates back to the 1980s.

Stormy herself responded to the tweet by calling out the president’s misogyny and then took it a logical step further by suggesting that if she’s a horse and they had an affair, that doesn’t bode well for him.

Whoa.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the latest in the case of Porn Star versus POTUS.
