Stormy Daniels shot daggers at President Donald Trump Tuesday morning after the president insulted her on Twitter. Daniels even penned a new nickname for Trump, throwing one of his favorite means of berating critics back in his face.
On Monday, a federal judge in California rejected a defamation lawsuit filed against Trump by Daniels, who claimed the president damaged her character by calling her a liar after Daniels said she was threatened by a man about an affair she claims to have had with Trump in 2006.
Daniels's tweets were in response to Trump, who took to Twitter Tuesday morning to belittle Daniels over her loss.
"Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.”
@FoxNews," Trump tweeted. "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!"

Trump misspelled Daniels, called her a "Horseface," and then inadvertently called himself a "con' in a single tweet.
Daniels' tweets were savage.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president," she wrote. "In addition to his...umm...shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self-control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality."
Then came the new nickname.
"Game on, Tiny."

In her next tweet, Daniels knocked "Tiny's" habitually poor grammar and called him a "con."

Social media loved Daniels' jabs at Trump.

In her recently released book, Full Disclosure, Daniels talks about her relationship with Trump. She includes a graphic description of Trump's penis, which Daniels compares to Toad from Mario Kart.
“He knows he has an unusual penis,” Daniels writes. “It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool."
“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting f*cked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart... It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had, but clearly, he didn’t share that opinion.”
This sparked a relentles trove of mushroom-themed memes on Twitter.

The lawsuit was sparked by a tweet in which Trump referred to Daniels' story as "a total con job."

"The Court agrees with Mr. Trump's argument because the tweet in question constitutes 'rhetorical hyperbole' normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States. The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement," Judge James Otero wrote.
Otero also ordered that Daniels pay Trump's legal fees.
The two have been entangled in legal battles for months, stemming from a non-disclosure agreement Daniels was forced to sign weeks before the 2016 election to keep the affair quiet.
Monday's dismissal, however, does not apply to the lawsuits surrounding the NDA itself, which are ongoing.
