Daniels – who claims she had sex with Trump in 2006 and received $130,000 from his attorney, Michael Cohen, as part of a nondisclosure agreement – played herself in the show's cold open, which also featured guest stars Ben Stiller as Cohen, Martin Short as former Trump physician Harold Bornstein, Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump and Jimmy Fallon as Jared Kushner.
In the sketch, Alec Baldwin's Trump and Stiller's Cohen chatted on the phone with several administration officials and associates – notably, Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani – before calling Daniels.
"C'mon, Stormy, quit making such a big deal about this," Baldwin, as Trump, said. "Everyone knows it's just an act."
"I work in adult films. We're not really known for our acting," Daniels quipped.
"Just tell me, what do you need for this to all go away," Baldwin's Trump asked.
