Stormy Daniels’ Pornhub ranking has increased 32,400% since Donald Trump was charged.
The arrest of Donald Trump has been a fascinating story to watch. The former President and reality star were charged with multiple felonies after allegedly falsifying business papers in order to facilitate a hush money payment to a porn actress, writer, and director Stormy Daniels. Following Trump’s presence in Manhattan criminal court on Tuesday, Pornhub searches for Daniels’ work increased dramatically.

The New York Post reported on the famous porn platform’s metrics, which revealed a 32,400 percent increase in average daily searches for Stormy Daniels. According to the report, she was getting approximately 34,500 daily searches before the recent events, and that number has now risen to over 650,000. Surprisingly, search terms for ‘jail’ and ‘prison’ increased after the court hearings.
Stormy Daniels appears to have admirers in more ways than one, as her merchandise sales have increased since Trump’s indictment. Daniels divulged more details about the alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 in a recent interview with Vogue Magazine. Trump has continued to deny the meeting and insists it never occurred.
Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen, on the other hand, confessed to paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the encounter during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg used this to charge Trump with a crime. Trump has declared ‘not guilty’ to each of the 34 charges leveled against him.
Stormy Daniels and her husband now enjoy a quieter life in Florida. Daniels now focuses on competitive horseback riding and hopes to produce and write a feature film in the future. She has not yet been called to testify in the case, but she did state her position unequivocally, adding, “I’d like him to get what’s coming for once.”
Stormy Daniels & Donald Trump
The fraud case against Trump is based on Trump allegedly repaying Michael Cohen for Stormy Daniel’s hush money while acting as President. Internal records categorized this payment as legal expenses and a retainer agreement, but prosecutors claim neither of these expenses nor a retainer agreement existed. The 34 counts include 11 counts for checks, 11 counts for monthly invoices Cohen submitted to the business, and 12 entries in Trump’s trust’s general ledger.
The unsealed indictment against Trump also revealed another claim unconnected to the Stormy Daniels hush money charges. According to the indictment, Trump also falsified company documents in order to deceive state tax officials. Trump has been ranting about the situation nonstop, delivering a 21-minute speech following his court appearance in which he claimed the accusations were unjust.
Trump has mostly been ranting about the Stormy Daniels payoff case on his Truth Social profile, where he has labeled Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg an “animal” and a “criminal,” among other things. The next in-person hearing in the lawsuit has been scheduled for December 4, just two months before the Iowa Republican caucuses. Trump’s legal problems will follow him directly into his Presidential campaign in 2024 if he runs.
