Donald Trump may deny it, but more people are acknowledging his affair with porn maven Stormy Daniels over a decade ago, when he was married and had recently fathered a child with his wife, Melania.
The latest twist comes courtesy of Keith Munyan, a 56-year-old Los Angeles photographer and close friend of Daniel'. Munyan is gay and partnered with a man named J.D. Barrale; Daniels refers to the two men as "my dads."
Daniels was renting Munyan's L.A. home in 2006 when Donald Trump rang the residence. Munyan was home at the time and he listened in on the phone call, with Daniels's permission. Munyan confirmed to The Washington Post that Daniels and Trump had a sexual encounter and that during the conversation Trump promised Daniels a condo in Florida, though the actress was angling for a spot on Trump's reality show, The Apprentice.
“The only thing I ever heard him do is just babble like he always does,” Munyan told the Post. “The conversation I remember the most is about the condominium. . . . I heard her say, ‘I don’t want that. That’s not what I want.’”
Munyan said Trump never mentioned Melania during his relatively-frequent calls in 2006 and 2007. Daniels had relayed to Munyan that she met Trump during a celebrity golf tournament in 2006; she went to his room for dinner, and he opened the door wearing pajamas. The photographer also confirmed a rumored anecdote of Daniels spanking Trump with a copy of Forbes magazine.
Munyan does not know if Trump was aware of the $130,000 payment made to Daniels by Trump's lawyer — in exchange for silence on the affair — just days before the 2016 election. Munyan and Barrale are hoping Daniels's recent interview with 60 Minutes' Anderson Cooper airs soon and clears things up.
“She’s a very strong, very intelligent woman,” Barrale said of Daniels. “With a damn good sense of humor. That has served her well because it has been a rough road.”
