Stormy Daniels court appearance reopens wounds for Trump's #MeToo accusers

Amy Dorris tried not to watch too much news last week as Stormy Daniels gave her courtroom account of sex with Donald Trump. But little details from Daniels's story have stuck with her, she said.

The age gap. Daniels's description of leaving a hotel bathroom and being surprised to see Trump in his boxers. Dorris said it reminded her of her own encounter with Trump outside a restroom in 1997, when she and her boyfriend attended the U.S. Open tennis tournament in Trump's VIP box. "I came out," Dorris recalled, "and there he was."

Dorris said Trump was suddenly kissing her and groping all over her body, despite her protests. She first disclosed her account publicly in 2020 after years of hesitation. Trump at the time denied the allegation though a lawyer. Dorris said she lost friends, shut down her social media and left her house for months over worries about her safety and privacy.
