When I read this part of Trump's speech...
Not a crime. Not an affair. I never liked horse face. Terrible. That would not be the one. There is no one we have a great First Lady.
... I thought this was the quote of the day.
I wasn't the only one:
In fact, looking up the line I found it was highlighted in numerous articles:

In order to fully appreciate the looseness of Trump's rambling verbiage as he utters the above words you have to hear him say them as they come out of his mouth in a kind of stream of consciousness. Or not... I'd never urge my readers to inflict watching and hearing Trump on themselves, though since most of you are news junkies like me and watch MSNBC or CNN you've probably heard bits of his WACA speech already.
Unpacking just the quote of the day about two women not using their actual names, on the face of it is an unfiltered string of words showing a psychological pressure to express something without putting his words together in a sensible way. In psychology this is called pressure of speech (link).
There are certainly better and more believable ways he could have said this. For example, while still denying having had a sexual encounter with Stormy Daniels, he could have admitted he met her and said that while he thought she was attractive he would never cheat on his beautiful wife.
Once again a famous Shakespeare quote applies to Trump:
Of course Trump is no lady, but then again, he's not a gentleman. He's not a queen, but he believes he's a king.
On the surface what Trump is saying about having such a great wife is that he'd never mess around with another woman is hogwash. Note what he didn't say. He refers to Stormy Daniels' appearance but doesn't refer to Melania as being beautiful.
The serial womanizer and p-grabber wants to make you believe that unlike all the men who have "great" wives who still cheat on them he would never do such a thing. We're supposed to believe this? If he does end up in DA Bragg's court and sticks to this claim does he think a jury is going to believe this?
Going back to calling Stormy Daniels horse face, it would be just about impossible to find a potential juror who doesn't know about his using this term to refer to her.
No man, whether he preferred slim brunettes or buxom blonds, would compare Stormy Daniels' face to a horse's. Neither would a woman. Despite posters like this one, last I knew juries were composed of men and women.
Besides, I would wager that the majority of Americans like way horses look.

Mercieca* judges that porn star Stormy Daniels has bested Trump over the course of her five-year public battle with him. Daniels refused to be intimidated by Trump’s threats (ad baculum) and shrugged off his lawyer’s attempts at coercion. She didn’t let Trump reduce her to an object (reification) of scorn or hatred. And when she retaliated against him, it was with the artillery of humor, insulting his manhood. “In addition to his...umm...shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women, and lack of self-control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny,” Daniels tweeted.
Maybe Daniels should be running against Trump instead of DeSantis.
(The bestiality refers to his calling Stormy horse face.)
Although highly unlikely, I wonder whether Melania will ever see that it is in her best interest to abandon Trump. Married to him she gets to live a lifestyle she no doubt is addicted to, but then again after her husband died Jackie Kennedy did alright. Emotionally I don't believe she or Barron are getting anything resembling love from a man incapable of empathy. She could certainly do better. It remains to be seen whether this enigmatic woman could turn her back on lover boy despite what's in the prenup.
