Stormy Daniels seemed to deny her denial of an alleged 2006 affair with President Trump on TV Tuesday night.
Appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the porn star coyishly danced around the comedian’s questions about her alleged tryst with Trump.
But Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, did leave some room for speculation when she agreed with Kimmel, who questioned the legitimacy of a statement that was put out Tuesday afternoon.
The missive was issued in Daniels’ name and it denied that she had an affair with the then-real estate mogul.
In the statement, the X-rated actress said she was denying the speculation “because it never happened,” not because of “hush money.”
Stormy Daniels appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night.
But Kimmel astutely pointed out that the signature didn’t match her autographs.
“That does not look like my signature, does it?” Daniels said, noting she doesn’t know where the statement came from.
Daniels has been making headlines ever since the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that, in the runnup to the 2016 election, Trump’s personal lawyer brokered a $130,000 settlement to prohibit her from discussing her previous allegations.
After the report, InTouch magazine unearthed a 2011 interview in which she said she had short-lived fling with the future president shortly after his wife gave birth to son Barron.
The late show host tried to get around Daniels’ alleged NDA using puppets.
She said in the InTouch scoop that Trump was “terrified of sharks” and that they had “textbook generic” unprotected sex.
Daniels’ interview with Kimmel came shortly after Trump delivered his first State of the Union address.
The adult entertainer told Kimmel that she gave InTouch an interview, but it wasn’t “as written.” She also said she never read the full transcript.
During a game of “Never Have I Ever” with Kimmel, Daniels admitted to sleeping with a married man at a golf tournament.
Daniels previously claimed she had an affair with President Trump in 2006, just months after First Lady Melania Trump gave birth to son Barron.

But she didn’t go as far as to acknowledge that the said man once fired Gary Busey on Reality TV. Trump once hosted “The Apprentice” and fired Busey from the show.
Daniels also refused to answer whether she’d had sex with a man whose name rhymed with “Lonald Lump.”
In a 20-second clip released ahead of the show, Kimmel and Daniels are shown watching Trump’s State of the Union address.
“OK, enough of this. Stormy, show me on the puppet what he did to you,” Kimmel said, holding up a doll version of the President.
Daniels held up her own doll, a miniaturized version with masking tape over her mouth.
