After Donald Trump was found guilty on 34 counts of falsifying company records, Stormy Daniels, a key witness in his hush money criminal trial, has voiced a strong opinion on the former president’s sentencing. Daniels, the adult film star who received $130,000 to keep quiet about her 2006 affair with Trump, described him as “completely and utterly out of touch with reality.”

In light of the jury’s decision, Daniels expressed a mixture of shock and vindication, reflecting her relief that the jury trusted her testimony. “I think he should be sentenced to jail and some community service working for the less fortunate or being the volunteer punching bag at a women’s shelter,” Daniels stated in a report by The Guardian.

Her suggestion for Trump’s sentencing underscores her disdain and highlights the broader implications of his actions, not just for her but for women’s issues generally. Despite her critical role in the trial, Daniels revealed that she continues to face significant backlash, including death threats from Trump’s supporters. Her testimony, which involved detailing a sexual encounter with Trump at a celebrity golf tournament ten years prior to his presidency, played a crucial role in the proceedings.

“You always feel like you’re the bad guy, even when you’re not just being up on that stand,” she reflected on her court experience. The trial, which is historic as it involves the first criminal trial of a sitting or former US president, concluded with a swift jury decision after less than 12 hours of deliberation. The verdict marks a precarious political moment for Trump, who is the presumed Republican nominee for the upcoming presidential election.

His poll ratings remained stable during the trial, but the conviction presents a potential for decline. As the sentencing date on July 11 approaches, public opinion shows a divided stance on Trump’s future. Recent polls reflect a nation split on the verdict and Trump’s participation in political life. According to an ABC News/Ipsos poll, half of Americans (50%) agree with the guilty verdict, and a similar percentage believe Trump should exit the presidential race.

Meanwhile, a Morning Consult poll found that 54% of registered voters approved of the verdict, and according to Forbes, 44% believe Trump should face jail time. Daniels, like many, believes that justice would be served with Trump’s imprisonment. She lamented the ongoing personal impact of the trial, stating, “It’s not over for me. It’s never going to be over for me. Trump may be guilty, but I still have to live with the legacy.” Her comments reflect a deep-seated desire for accountability not only in the courts but in the court of public opinion, as the nation grapples with the ramifications of the trial.
