Stormy Daniels has made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to deliver a message to US President Donald Trump: "A storm's a coming, baby."
The porn actress, who says she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 and was paid $US130,000 to stay silent about it, delivered the warning to Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump in the show's opening skit.
When the fake Trump asks Daniels what she would need to "for this all go away," she replies: "A resignation."
Daniels made the surprise cameo during the star-studded opening of Saturday's episode, which also featured Donald Glover. Also appearing were Ben Stiller as Trump's embattled lawyer Michael Cohen, Martin Short as the President's doctor Harold Bornstein, Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Cecily Strong as Melania Trump, Leslie Jones as Omarosa, Beck Bennett as Mike Pence, and Scarlett Johansson and Jimmy Fallon as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
The episode's sketch started with Alec Baldwin's Trump on the phone with Cohen, and also featured Bornstein and Kate McKinnon's brutal take on Rudy Giuliani, with two FBI agents listening in and spoofing the recent news that Cohen's calls may have been logged by the feds.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is seeking to be released from a non-disclosure agreement preventing her from lifting the lid on her alleged affair with Trump . She has also filed defamation suits against Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who paid her the money.
Trump denies he and Daniels had an affair, and has sent mixed messages about his knowledge of the settlement.
Then, following the parade of other guest performers, the real Stormy Daniels appeared, warning the phone call's participants, "I know you don't believe in climate change, Donald, but a storm is coming." —
