A nor'easter pummeled the Northeast with snow on Wednesday, but "the other storm that is ravaging the East Coast today — specifically Washington, D.C. — is Stormy Daniels," Jimmy Kimmel said on Wednesday's Kimmel Live. He ran through the latest developments in the alleged extramarital affair the porn star had with President Trump in 2006 and 2007, the confirmed $130,000 that Trump's lawyer paid Daniels to stay quiet, and the new lawsuit Daniels filed against Trump, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement is null because Trump — alias "David Dennison" — never signed it.

Kimmel showed the agreement produced by Daniels' lawyer. "You can see, there's no signature next to the initials DD — and by the way, even his initials have to be double-Ds," he joked. "It's interesting, he remembers to put his name on everything else — water, vodka, steaks, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump — but he has a problem with bills: he doesn't sign them or pay them," apparently even to his own lawyer.
