Stormy Daniels and her team must think people are really dumb.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, claims that his client’s hugely dilated pupils during her 60 Minutes interview were due to Benadryl. He wants people to believe that Daniels looked like she was on drugs because of a little over the counter allergy medicine.
People pounced on Daniels’ appearance immediately after the interview. She didn’t stumble or slur her words, but eagle-eyed viewers noted that she looked inebriated.
Benadryl can cause someone to appear sluggish or have dilated pupils.
“The only thing bigger than #StormyDaniels breast’s [sic] are her pupils,” a Twitter user commented after the interview.
Another user added: “During the interview with Anderson Cooper, Stormy Daniels’ eyes were very dilated. Was she on drugs? Most likely.”
People speculated that Daniels might have taken a hit of cocaine or ecstasy before her interview. Adderall would have given her a drugged-up appearance as well.
Avenatti insists that the allegations aren’t true.
“The only drug that my client took within the 24 hours before the interview was a single Benadryl,” Avenatti told Inside Edition.
Team Daniels claims that the only people who have been lying about the affair are President Trump and his associates.
“And we’re confident … that when we get to the bottom of this, we’re going to prove to the American people that they have been told a bucket of lies,” Avenatti said. “I mean, at this point, I don’t see how the case gets resolved short of the truth coming out and the whole truth for the American people.”
Daniels claims to have a tepid affair with President Trump 12 years ago. She was paid for her silence in 2016. It turned out to be a bad deal for the president as she couldn’t even keep quiet for a year.
