In July, porn star Stormy Daniels was arrested outside an Ohio strip club after allegedly inappropriately touching customers during a performance. Those customers just so happened to be undercover police officers.

The charges were later dropped, but on Wednesday, Daniels told the women of The View about that night.

“I got in trouble because there were undercover officers sitting at the stage; they put dollars in their mouths and asked for a ‘motorboat,’” she said.

Stormy Daniels has become a household name after calling out President Trump for paying her hush money to keep quiet about their alleged affair. Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, says her arrest was politically motivated and the adult film actress explained how it went too far.

Usually you get fined $1,000, and that’s that, she said, continuing, “You don’t get arrested, you don’t get hauled in, and [get a] mug shot and strip-searched.”

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney, recently admitted in court that Trump directed him to pay Daniels to stay silent. She posted a victorious tweet upon hearing the news but told The View how, at the time, it was actually pretty emotional.


“That news was a punch in the gut,” she said. “I was so overwhelmed I just broke down into sobs.”

Daniels also announced that she’s publishing a memoir called Full Disclosure, due out Oct. 2. It’s about her life, but it’s also, obviously, about her unique time spent with the president of the United States.
