Trump attacks Stormy Daniels' looks after judge drops lawsuit

President Trump celebrated a judge's dismissal of a defamation lawsuit brought against him by Stormy Daniels — whom he mockingly called "Horseface" — in a Tuesday tweet.

"'Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.' @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!"

The big picture: Trump has a lengthy history of attacking women's appearances, using words like "slob" and "pig." And, as Axios' Jonathan Swan reported, Trump is exceedingly proud of the charged nicknames he comes up with for his opponents. Daniels responded in her own tweet saying Trump has "demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! ... Game on, Tiny."
