(Newser) – Stormy Daniels thinks she might have gone a little too far in new memoir Full Disclosure when she including a graphic description of President Trump's private parts. The porn actress, who likened Trump's genitals to "the mushroom character in Mario Kart" during a two-page description of an alleged sexual encounter in 2006, told 60 Minutes Australia Sunday that she actually feels "pretty terrible" now that the book is out, USA Today reports. "Because, in a way, it's body shaming," Daniels said. She said she included the details to prove she was telling the truth, and justified it to herself by saying "this is a man who said much worse things about women multiple times. So, here's a taste of your own medicine."

Daniels—who described the alleged encounter with Trump as the "least impressive sex" she had ever had—said that if she was going to lie about sex with a celebrity, she would pick "somebody way less embarrassing than Donald Trump." On Monday, Daniels told CNN that she has forgiven former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen now that he has admitted she was telling the truth when she said he arranged a $130,000 "hush money" payment on orders from Trump. She said she passed Cohen at New York's LaGuardia Airport recently, and he looked "happy and healthy," like "he had a weight off his shoulders." (Eric Trump was also allegedly involved in the effort to silence Daniels.)
