Donald Trump and the porn star: How they met at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament

News broke Friday that a lawyer for Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former porn star one month before the 2016 election, allegedly in an effort to buy her silence about an alleged 2006 encounter that occurred at a Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament.

People familiar with the deal told the Wall Street Journal that Michael Cohen arranged the hush money for Stormy Daniels, born Stephanie Clifford. In response to the Journal, Cohen isn’t denying the payments, but he said it’s not tied to an affair.

Cohen called the allegations of an affair “outlandish” and “a false narrative.” He said both the president and Clifford have “vehemently” denied an affair. Cohen shared a statement, signed by Clifford but under the name Stormy Daniels, with NBC News correspondent Ali Vitali:

Cohen also passed along an image of this letter to me, signed from “Stormy Daniels” and dated Jan 10, 2018, denying rumors of hush money from Trump and calling them “completely false.” https://t.co/J0taBJZLP5 pic.twitter.com/MX4qgVhyN2

But Clifford privately told sources interviewed by the Journal that she and Trump had a consensual sexual encounter in 2006.

The president and Daniels were photographed together in July 2006 at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, a three-round tournament at the Edgewood Tahoe links in Stateline, Nevada. At the time, Trump would have been married to Melania Trump a little over a year and together they had their four-month-old son Barron.

The Smoking Gun said Trump was among an-80 player field that included star athletes like Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, as well as entertainers such as Ray Romano and Cheech Marin. During one round, Trump’s threesome included NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and skier Bode Miller.

Trump also was there with Carolyn Kepcher, a Trump Organization executive who co-starred with her boss in his NBC reality show “The Apprentice.”

The Smoking Gun noted that Trump had a lousy showing at the tournament, finishing 62nd. But the weekend was not a total loss because Trump struck up an acquaintance, a friendship or possibly more with Clifford, a popular adult film actress who had starred in scores of X-rated features.

Daniels, 27, blonde and buxom, was at the tournament doing promotional work on behalf of her studio, Wicked Pictures.

Maybe Trump wasn’t thinking that weekend of a political future, or of what his wife or anyone else would think, but he had no problem
