Melania Doesn't Believe Trump Had Sex With Stormy Daniels, Rudy Giuliani Claims
The NYC mayor-turned-presidential legal advisor made his case in Israel.
Does Melania Trump believe the allegations waged against her husband by adult film actress Stormy Daniels?
According to Rudy Giuliani, the answer is no.
The former New York City mayor-turned-presidential attorney made the claim Thursday during a conference in Israel.
"She believes in her husband," Giuliani said. "She knows it's not true. I don't even think there's a slight suspicion that it's true."
But the first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said Melania Trump hasn't spoken to the mayor about her thoughts on Daniels' claims.
"I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani," Grisham said in a statement to several news agencies.
Giuliani went on to dismiss Daniels on the basis of her profession.
"Sorry, I don't respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance," he said. "Or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and isn't going to sell her body for sexual exploitation."
Giuliani's comments have drawn outrage, including from Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti.
“Mr. Giuliani is an absolute pig for making those comments," Avenatti told CNN.
Avenatti is now calling for Giuliani to be fired, and invoked Giuliani's personal life.
"Rudy cheated on his wife, announced he was divorcing her in a press conference. He's in no position to be lecturing people on integrity," he said.
NBC host Megyn Kelly also chimed in.
"Melania is classy and gorgeous," the "Today" host said. "But she has posed nude for GQ magazine... not the same thing, but the suggestion that Giuliani or Trump would not respect a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation... I mean, come on."
