Giuliani says Stormy Daniels has ‘no reputation,’ affair not credible

First lady Melania Trump became the topic of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's comments on Wednesday at a speaking event.

Giuliani also said in his overseas remarks that Melania Trump believes her husband's denials about having an affair with Daniels in 2006, but Kelly cast doubt on the claim, asking her audience: "Do you believe that Melania Trump believes Donald Trump?". In an attempt to discredit Daniels' defamation case against the president, Giuliani said women like Daniels don't deserve respect and lack credibility.

But Thursday, the first lady's spokesperson forcefully swatted back.

"I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani", Melania Trump's spokeswoman told CNN in a statement.

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and U.S. attorney, made the comment at the "Globes" Capital Market conference in Tel Aviv.

Daniels is now embroiled in multiple lawsuits against the president of the United States and his attorney for defamation of character and the legality of a 2016 hush agreement in which she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Donald Trump.

Giuliani's comments may be part of a wider political strategy to discredit Daniels' lawsuit against Trump, but they're extremely unsafe for a population of women already fighting to be respected.

"Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name", he concluded. I say, you know what?

Cohen's attorney, Brent Blakely, said Thursday night that he was reviewing the court filing and could not immediately comment.

This comment caused American attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing Stormy Daniels, to call him an "absolute pig".

Avenatti fired back on Twitter, calling Giuliani a "misogynist". The White House has said Trump denies the alleged affair.

The Late Show host also refuted Giulani's assertion that he only respects "career women" but not porn stars like Stormy Daniels.

"Melania Trump is classy and gorgeous, and I really admire her", Kelly said.

Of course, this is now one of several lawsuits that Stormy AKA Stephanie Clifford and her very media friendly Avenatti have going against Team Trump. Secondly, explain to me how she can be damaged?
