President Trump is expected to bring the thunder when he delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday, but the real storm is likely to hit afterward. Stephen Colbert had previously announced “The Late Show” will air live after the speech, and now Jimmy Kimmel has booked a special guest sure to raise some eyebrows.
On Thursday night, Kimmel announced via Twitter that adult film star and purported Donald Trump mistress Stormy Daniels will be joining him on his Tuesday show.
“I am pleased to announce that the very gifted @StormyDaniels will be on #Kimmel Tuesday 1/30 after the #StateOfTheUnion,” Kimmel tweeted. “I have MANY QUESTIONS!” He then added a #MAGA hashtag.
The Wall Street Journal reported two weeks ago that Daniels — whose given name is Stephanie Clifford — was paid $130,000 one month before the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
Trump married wife Melania in 2005 and she gave birth to their son, Barron, in 2006.
The president’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, denies paying Daniels hush money. And just last week, In Touch magazine published a 2011 interview with Daniels in which she detailed her alleged encounters with Trump.
It looks like Kimmel and Daniels will indeed have plenty to talk about come Tuesday night.
