Stormy Daniels, the porn star who allegedly had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, and reportedly took $130,000 from Trump's attorney before the election to not discuss the encounter, is slated to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night, following Trump's State of the Union Address.

In spite of the agreement, Daniels (née Stephanie Clifford) had already shared some explicit details about her sexual experiences with Trump, in a seven-year-old interview with InTouch magazine (that was only just published). According to the interview, the "sex was nothing crazy," and she could "describe his junk perfectly," if she ever has to. Oh, and apparently Trump is obsessed with sharks—she allegedly came to his hotel room in 2006, a year after Trump married his current wife, Melania, to find him in his "pajama pants," riveted by Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Mother Jones also learned, from emails between political operatives in 2009, that Trump requested she spank him with a copy of Forbes magazine (psychoanalysts the world over are having a field day with that one, I'm sure).  

Given the already titillating (and yucky) details of the affair, it's not a stretch to say some people (okay, most people) are hoping she'll break her agreement not to discuss their encounter, when she appears on Jimmy Kimmel's show after the State of the Union—as good a time as any, really, to open up about the president's sordid extramarital affairs. Which is why this GoFundMe page from one James Bourland exists: to raise money for Daniels's legal fees should she break the agreement (and, should she not, donate the funds instead to RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization in the country, in Trump's name). 

It seems unlikely Bourland will reach his funding goal of $450,000 by Tuesday night. But it's a noble cause, and one well worth supporting—even though it seems quite likely that Daniels stands to profit, in some way, shape or form, from breaking the agreement, anyway. And who knows: if you donate, and it succeeds, you could be partially responsible for making history.
