West Hollywood Declares “Stormy Daniels Day” As Adult Film Star Gets Key To The City
West Hollywood, California presented porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, with a key to the city on Wednesday and declared the day “Stormy Daniels Day.”
A statement for the event announced that Daniels was being honored for “her leadership in the #RESIST movement” and that she “has proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation.” The ceremony took place at the sex shop Chi Chi LaRue’s.
This is not the first time that West Hollywood has been less-than-friendly towards President Trump. In 2016, then-mayor Lindsey Horvath wrote a letter to then-candidate Trump, in which she said, “I want to make very clear that your campaign of violence and intimidation is not welcome in our city,” while demanding that he “renounce calls to violence.” Then in June 2017, the city council passed a resolution calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump.
In a tweet leading up to Stormy Daniels Day, current mayor John Duran noted all “the right wing hate mail” he has received that has made him figure he must be “doing something right!”
Haha! Giving the key to the City to @StormyDaniels today & the right wing hate mail is pouring in. Been doing LGBT rights for over 30 years. Right wing hate mail is the compass that tells me I am doing something right! Happy Stormy Daniels Day! #StormyDaniels #Resisters #WeHo
