Verdict: False

The claim is baseless. The purported quote is not real.

Fact Check:

House Congressional members voted for a plan that will avoid a government shutdown, The Associated Press reported. The plan, which is awaiting approval from the Senate, will fund the government through the new year.

TheTikTok post purports House Speaker Mike Johnson and Stormy Daniels had a “business relationship.” The post shows side-by-side images of Daniels and Johnson.

The headline reads, “BREAKING FOX NEWS: Stormy Daniels admits to having a business relationship with Speaker Mike Johnson. This is a developing story.” The man in the video further speculates that Johnson had an affair with a man.

The claim is inaccurate. There is no credible news report that suggests this claim is accurate. Check Your Fact tracked the post back to a Twitter account called, Staff Sergeant Johnson. The account’s bio features a disclaimer saying that the content is satire. The disclaimer reads, “Raw & Unfiltered Parody Account.”

Furthermore, there is no such Fox News report found on their website. There is no such report found on any of Fox news’s social media accounts. (RELATED: Video Of Pakistani Air Force Is Old)

This is not the first piece of misinformation about Johnson that has been shared online. Check Your Fact debunked a claim about Johnson’s stance of abortion.
