People must underestimate you, adult film star and director Stormy Daniels says Donald Trump told her in the moments after they had sex in 2006. Twelve years later, Daniels presents one of the most formidable threats to the pussy-grabbing president.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, came across in a "60 Minutes" interview Sunday night as self-assured, quick-witted and forthright, a woman accustomed to dealing with crappy men and putting them in their place. And she's effectively getting her message across on the two platforms Trump cherishes most: TV news and Twitter. The irony is delicious.

Trump deploys shamelessness as a force field ― comments and scandals that would sink any other presidency bounce right off him. Daniels weaponizes her lack of shame in much the same way ― except where Trump is shamelessly dishonest, Daniels is shamelessly forthright. Yes, she spanked Trump. No, she didn't want to have sex with him. Yes, she consented to doing so. No, she didn't have sex with him a second time. Yes, she released a statement in January claiming the affair had never happened. No, that statement wasn't true. Yes, she has felt intimidated and bullied. No, she isn't going away.



The Federal Trade Commission has begun investigating Facebook. The probe was sparked by revelations that Cambridge Analytica misused Facebook user data.

Students marched for their lives this weekend as Trump chilled at his golf course, largely ignoring them. The president tweeted several times Saturday, but none addressed the massive nationwide protest against gun violence.

More than a dozen European Union countries joined the United States in expelling Russian diplomats on Monday in response to the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in the British city of Salisbury earlier this month.
