Chrissy Teigen gave everyone a reason to laugh when she responded to Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti looking for proof that Rudy Giuliani has ever “voluntarily viewing pornography.” In response, Teigen asked, “Who on earth is gonna admit to watching porn with rudy guiliani? god speed, Michael,” according to Hollywood Life.
Avenatti also had to concede, responding “I see your point… this may be a tough ask but there may be other evidence available.” No one is sure what Avenatti means by “other evidence,” so only time will tell.
Rudy Guiliani, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, previously slammed adult film stars, including Daniels, for her profession while he was speaking in Tel Aviv.
“I respect all human beings. I even have to respect criminals. But I’m sorry, I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career women or a women of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a women and as a person and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation.”
Guiliani’s inference that he respects criminals more than adult film stars, which would certainly include Stormy Daniels, upset Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti called Guiliani a “misogynist,” “a pig,” and said that “Mr. Trump didn’t seem to have any ‘moral’ issues with her and others back in 2006 and beyond.” Avenatti also said Trump should fire Guiliani, according to The Hill. The name-calling between the two men is not new, with Giuliani calling Avenattie an “ambulance chaser” and a “jerk” in the past.

Additionally, Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter chimed in on the issue on The View, according to People.
“Mayor Giuliani was divorced three times … spent years estranged from his kids, married his second cousin in his first marriage. Let’s calm with the moral judgment on people’s industries… This is stigmatizing people in the sex industry which is a huge cultural problem. It’s legal. It’s consensual. And, by the way, it’s the only industry where women make more money than men. So can we stop with the judgment on the profession?”
Megyn Kelly also came to Daniels’ defense after Giuliani’s bold comment, saying that “Being in adult film does not make you a liar,” detailed The Hill. Kelly also brought up that Melania Trump has previously posed nude in GQ, while adding that she wasn’t trying to compare her with Daniels.

Whatever Giuliani was hoping to achieve with his comments, at the least it’s made people fired up in discussions about whether adult film stars ought to be respected or not based on their profession.
Daniels’ legal battles with President Trump have been ongoing for months. The most recent update is that her original lawyer, Keith Davidson, is countersuing Daniels for defamation, reported NBC News. Davidson’s lawsuit comes after Daniels sued Davidson and Cohen for working together, and Daniels and Avenatti are also claiming that Cohen recorded conversations without consent.
