There’s a conspiracy theory going around that the man in the sketch who Stormy Daniels and her attorney alleged threatened her over her relationship with Donald Trump actually looks a lot like her husband, Glendon Crain:

The “theory,” if you can call it that, even made its way into the president’s timeline via a response to a tweet on the border:

And then President Trump quote-tweeted it to his 50 million followers, calling the man “nonexistent” and saying the whole episode is a “total con job”:
A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)! https://t.co/9Is7mHBFda

So, did Daniels’ attorney just successfully bait the president?

This also draws more attention to it after Twitter spent yesterday mocking the drawing as resembling Tom Brady and not taking it very seriously:
Someone is very worried about Stormy. But I’m glad he circulated the sketch to millions. With all the attention it’s getting, it’s more likely the suspect will be found. Would be interesting if Trump actually helped. https://t.co/6C6ZSAz44x

But now the one-day story continues when it should have been over. Sigh.
Twitter can't decide if the man who allegedly threatened Stormy Daniels is Willem Dafoe or Tom Brady https://t.co/w2szNVh1mF
