On Saturday night, teenagers from a Catholic high school in Kentucky were smeared by the media for allegedly harassing a Native American man who served in the Vietnam War. Full video context painted a far different picture, however: the boys from Covington Catholic High School, attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C., were confronted by the protester, Nathan Phillips, and harassed by another activist group.
According to the video evidence, the boys do not harass the Native American group nor do they chant “build the wall,” as originally reported.
The facts of the situation did not stop hot takes from pouring in online, nor did it inspire apologies and retractions from everyone who wrongly condemned, doxxed, and smeared the young men.
One of the unrepentent hot-take spewers was none other than Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford), the porn star famously suing President Donald Trump.
Daniels called the teens “disgusting punks” via Twitter and suggested they be interned by an electrified wall in the state of Kentucky. “I’m suddenly in favor of building a wall…around Covington Catholic High in KY,” she wrote. “And let’s electrify it to keep those disgusting punks from getting loose and creating more vileness in society.”

The tweet has since been removed from Twitter, but it’s unclear if Daniels deleted it or it was removed by Twitter employees. Daniels has yet to apologize or even address the vile tweet. She did, however, keep up the following post she re-tweeted on her feed:

Daniels has publicly claimed that she had unprotected sex with Mr. Trump in a hotel room soon after Melania Trump gave birth to the couple’s son Barron in 2006. The porn star claims she signed a nondisclosure agreement and was paid $130,000 to remain silent about the alleged encounter. President Trump has denied the affair.
On the legal front, Daniels is not doing so well against the president. Her defamation lawsuit against Trump was tossed out by a federal judge and she was left on the hook for his legal fees, totaling a whopping $340,000, as The Daily Wire reported in December:
Two months after a judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ frivolous defamation lawsuit against President Trump and ruled that she must fork over his legal fees, Trump’s attorneys have delivered the bill — and it probably won’t help the porn star’s already imploding relationship with her celebrity lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
In a federal court in Los Angeles Monday, Trump’s attorneys said they have racked up over 500 hours of work at rates as high as $840 an hour, NBC News reports. The total bill, they say, comes out to $340,000.
