Donald Trump called Stormy Daniels ‘horseface’ in a tweet. And then Netflix greenlit a pilot.
It’s hard to tell if this is a new low for Trump, since he says so many degrading things about women, his opponents, and pretty much anyone he doesn’t like. It’s interesting that even he’s mocking her appearance, he liked her well enough when they hooked up in 2006.
This is a political cartoon that I wrestled with because I wanted to strike the right tone. I didn’t want to feed into the awfulness. I landed on the idea for a new Netflix show, StormJack Horseface, because BoJack Horseman is immediately where my mind went.
Not only is it a great show, but in this case, BoJack and Stormy are alike in that they’re flawed heroes in their respective stories. Plus, Stormy’s response to Trump was pretty great:
Where are Donald Trump’s thumbs? All the way up.
