Donald Trump keeps saying he wants to answer the accusations made by Stormy Daniels.

So, do it.

He could do exactly what Daniels did and testify. Under oath.

He could stand in the courtroom, put his right hand on one of the to MAGA shills and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Back in April, Trump said that in his felony case involving $130,000 in hush money payments to Daniels, an adult film star.

Then, he started hedging. Saying he鈥檇 testify 鈥渋f necessary.鈥 That he would 鈥減robably鈥 do so. That he 鈥渨ould like to.鈥

After the judge overseeing his case issued a gag order to keep Trump from attacking witnesses and jurors, Trump said, 鈥淚鈥檓 not allowed to testify.鈥

The judge quickly corrected him, saying the gag order pertains only to 鈥渟tatements that are made outside of court. It does not apply to statements made from the witness stand.鈥

Trump hus money trial:Stormy Daniels spills details about alleged Trump affair. How will they spin this one?

Except Trump鈥檚 rights have not been taken from him. He is a defendant in a criminal trial.

Stormy Daniels testified, under oath, and then was cross-examined. Trump can do the same. Testify, then be cross-examined by the prosecution.

That could be a daunting 鈥 and risky 鈥 proposition to a man for whom the Washington Post catalogued over during his four years as president. A habit other fact checkers say this time around.

Daniels doesn鈥檛 believe Trump has the guts to testify. Or, on X, formerly Twitter:
