NBC’s Megyn Kelly responded to Stormy Daniels’ CBS interview in the most stunning and brave manner possible: making it all about herself.
During her segment aired on 60 Minutes Sunday night, Daniels described being threatened by “a man in a parking lot” when she first considered publicly talking about her sexual relationship with President Trump. (RELATED: Daniels Claims Man In Parking Lot Threatened Her Over Trump Story)
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” Daniels told Anderson Cooper. “A guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”
Kelly thought the aforementioned exchange “sounded familiar” to an encounter she had with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Kelly tweeted out a passage from her book, “Settle For More,” detailing the incident which occurred before one of the 2016 Republican presidential primary debates.
He went on Twitter and asked his followers if he should go to the debate at all. He accused me of being unfair. For the first time I thought, Is this real? Or is this for attention? With Trump, you just never know.
Sunday, he kept at it. Tweet, tweet, tweet.
At the same time, Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, made a phone call to Bill Sammon and tried to get me booted off the debate team. When Sammon told him that was out of the question, Lewandowski threatened me, saying I’d had a “rough couple of days after that last debate,” and he “would hate to have [me] go through that again.” The tone was unmistakable. Sammon warned Lewandowski that he was out of line. I was far from the only woman or reporter Lewandowski had threatened.
