"I have her tentatively scheduled for Hannity tonight", Cohen allegedly texted Davidson Jan. 17, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also alleges that Davidson "secretly tipped off" Cohen about Daniels' plans to hire another counsel and publicly disclose her relationship with the president, which resulted in Cohen initiating an arbitration proceeding to get a temporary restraining order against the porn actress, to "silence" her.
The comment drew a fiery response from Daniels' current lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who called Giuliani a "pig". "Lovely women, classy women, women of great substance, but Stormy Daniels?".

When pressed by CNN about the comments and whether they represented an "antiquated" point of view, Giuliani responded, "I kind of like my view of it better", referring to the way he said feminists historically thought of porn, which was demeaning to women.
