“I’m only here for the politics,” said one man, shouting above the howling voices of women in the crowd as the famous porn star squirted her nude body with lotion.
Stormy Daniels stripped naked Friday night at Gold Club Centerfolds on the outskirts of Sacramento, and a legion of anti-Trump women joined a few men in protesting the “pervert president.”
“On any other Friday night, there’s almost no one here,” said club manager Lars Griffendor. “But tonight, the Sisterhood found solidarity with creepy guys throwing one-dollar bills at a porn star.”
A woman who declined to give her name, age, or city of residence, said, “I’m not here to watch Stormy get naked or strip, but I do agree with her campaign slogan.”
The slogan of Daniels’ nationwide tour is “Make America Horny Again,” so we asked a diverse cross-section of the audience if they were getting horny.
“That’s gross,” sad Congresswoman Doris Matsui. “Why would you even say that?”
“Pervert,” said City Councilwoman Angelique Ashby, who was there with her husband.
A Sacramento man who looked remarkably like Mayor Darrell Steinberg — but insisted on anonymity because of the stigma associated with strip clubs — said he was horny but that Daniels’ willingness to step into the political spotlight was the other reason he came out.
“You can’t tell anyone my name, but I’m proud to watch a fully nude porn star rub lotion on herself to get under Trump’s skin,” he said. “If that’s what it takes to stand up to a pervert like our president, I’ll do it. But you really can’t tell anyone I was here. Seriously.”
Club manager Griffendor said “women and older, more affluent people” have been coming to the club lately, despite its location in a seedy industrial strip mall off Highway 50 between Folsom and Sacramento.
“It shows that Democrats really are willing to do anything to prove that Donald Trump is a pervert,” he said. “It’s been really good for business.”
