Jimmy Kimmel's guest on Tuesday's Kimmel Live was Stephanie "Stormy Daniels" Clifford, the adult film actress and director who, according to The Wall Street Journal, agreed not to discuss her alleged extramarital affair with President Trump in 2006 for a $130,000 hush payment in 2016 from Trump's lawyer. Much of the interview was Kimmel trying to work around the nondisclosure agreement Daniels more or less confirms she signed. Things got pretty uncomfortable at times.

"I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to ask you tonight, but then, like three hours ago, I go on the internet," Kimmel said, reading a letter that purports to be a signed denial of the affair. "Did you sign this letter that was released today?" he asked. "I don't know, did I?" Daniels replied, coyly. "That does not look like my signature, does it?' "So you're saying perhaps this letter was written and released without your approval?" She just said "hm" and laughed. "I do not know where it came from," she said. "It came from the internet."
