Stormy Daniels certainly had her fans when Mayor John Duran welcomed the porn actress to West Hollywood by proclaiming Wednesday as “Stormy Daniels Day.” The event generated press coverage around the world for Daniels, for West Hollywood and, of course, for Duran, who appears to be focusing his year as the newly installed mayor on promoting sexual liberation as well as the Sunset Strip.
But not everyone was feeling sunny about Stormy. There also were some Donald Trump supporters who stood outside Chi Chi LaRue’s, the erotic apparel shop where Daniels was hawking her t-shirts. They were there to show their support for the president with whom Daniels allegedly had a brief affair that the porn actress claims he paid her $130,000 to shut up about.
Given the conflation of sex and politics that has come to define Donald Trump (and Mayor Duran, known for having hooked up with his former City Hall deputy on Grindr before hiring him) comedian Ben Kawaller figured it was an appropriate time to conduct a sidewalk poll to determine which American and international political leaders West Hollywood residents of all political persuasions were most likely to want to have sex with.
George Washington or Thomas Jefferson? Richard Nixon or Martin Van Buren? Abraham Lincoln or Scott Pruitt? Vladimir Putin or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? (Hillary Clinton’s failure to beat Trump meant there were no female options. And, best of our knowledge, you won’t find any of the others on Grindr).
