    Today in West Hollywood history the City of West Hollywood declared May 23rd Stormy Daniels Day back in 2018. The adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was recognized for her efforts in speaking out against President Donald Trump. She was presented with a key to the city and a Proclamation by then West Hollywood Mayor John Duran and Mayor Pro-Tem John D’Amico.

    Ms. Daniels alleged she and President Trump slept together in a hotel in Lake Tahoe in 2006, months after the birth of his son Barron, launching an investigation on allegations that he Daniels $130,000 to stay quiet about the alleged affair before the election.

    The Stormy Daniels Day event took place in front Chi Chi LaRue’s adult retail store (now Circus of Books) and it was a feeding frenzy with dozens of photographers piled up on top of one of another trying to get their shots and hundreds of onlookers who all wanted to witness a porn star receive the keys to the city. The entire sidewalk was blocked and there was a traffic jam on Santa Monica Boulevard with news vans lining the street.

    “Lady Godiva rode naked through the streets of England to protest injustice and taxes, and we have our own Lady Godiva here in the city of West Hollywood,” Mayor Duran said at the press conference.

    “I’m not really sure what the key opens,” she said. “I’m hoping it’s the wine cellar,” she was quoted nationwide and beyond while she stood next to her now disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti. “In all seriousness, the city of West Hollywood is truly a special place, very close to my heart…this community has a history of standing up to bullies and speaking truth to power and I’m so very lucky to be a part of it. I’m elated and honored. Thank you to everyone,” she added.

    Mayor Pro Tempore John D’Amico presented Daniels with the official key to the city.

    Not all onlookers were fans. Hecklers made fun of the porn star calling her out for signing a nondisclosure agreement and asking if she used her own pen. Another heckler asked her about the former president’s size. Some of those in attendance wore MAGA hats.

    She would return for a meet and greet to Chi Chi LaRues the following day for a meet-and-greet where fans could take a photo with Daniels with the purchase of #TeamDaniels t-shirts.

    The enemy of your enemy is not always your friend. While I appreciate Daniel’s role in bringing down Donald Trump, she is hardly a victim much less a hero. This silly presentation was the beginning of the end of John D’Amico’s City Council career.
